For my 23rd birthday my girlfriend blindfolded me at our body shop. After the blindfolds were taken off I was surprised with my new hood; the VIS Ams Carbon Fiber Hood

I recently dropped my car off to the shop to have them install the hood pins, clear coat the carbon fiber and convert my bowtie emblem into a flowtie.

Still working with JE on the twin turbo build......however, in the mean time I had Carrera Auto in College Park, MD install my ZL1 front conversion with a tow hook (black; stealth mode). She is a new Beast and looks badass now!

Just picked up Inferno from carrera auto with new wheels wrapped with some nitto tires.

I had them install Factory reproductions style 41 ZL wheels based off the ZL1 wheels however, in drag spec and wrap them with sticky performance tires.

Fronts - 18x8 wrapped with NT555
Rears - 18x11 wrapped with NT05R

And update on the turbo build............all the parts are in and im blocked off to drop her off August 17th. Waiting impatiently to turn on the boost

No problem. I highly recommend this setup. Its a straight bolt on and it took my shop 3.5 hours to mount, balance and align.
