rear panel and RS

the RS emblems came in a pair. Got them from PFYC.com I got a vinyl blackout piece from them I also I believe but there is two holes where the Bowtie was so I had that filled and painted. I think if you put the vinyl over the holes it will bust thru as the RS did not cover the holes completely...so I just had it filled and painted instead.

Of course, since I made all these changes I wanted to put the white outlined bowtie so I ordered bowties custom painted white and then got a matte black vinyl center from reflectiveconcepts.com. So now no one knows if its an SS or RS unless they actually know what the front chin looks like.

As you can see the difference in the bulbs.


This is what it looks like installed.


I didn't realize when I installed them that my Halo's would be on all the time also. Its a cool look and unexpected.


But then I also noticed my front side markers lights are on also... So I will be getting with AAC to see if I did something wrong, cause I dont think its suppose to be doing that.
everything is working fine. That's what the harness is suppose to do.

Very nice car my friend. I think the White Rims are the only problem, since you have the Black Stripes, Powder coating them Flat Black would put your car at the top man at perfect, just something to consider! Anyways, awesome car and you have done a lot to it man that's amazing, but one question what kind of Caliper Covers are those and any close up pictures of them ?

I actually love the white powder coated wheels and get compliments on the ALL THE TIME. Black wheels have never been my thing but thanks for thought. Now the caliper covers can be purchased from calipercovers.com. I got them thru another place not realizing that you can get them any way you want. They come in any color and can have engraved anything you want on them (and the engraving can be any color also) but since I already shelled out the money for these, I am keeping them. Here is a couple of pics. I do receive compliments on these also.

This is the back


The front (they come standard with MGP on all 4 of them..no clue why)

lol...thanks.
I totally dig how it handles and the stance of it compared to others. but I do notice that it makes a squeaking noise sometimes.. So I will end up getting the struts and sway bars to go with it. I am just going to wait til winter cause now I have to go back to spending some money on the kiddos. But overall I am 95% pleased.

Looks like its time to do some under hood mods to make her look good for car shows. I need to do the engine cover and I guess a couple of other things...ugh. Where to start?

What happened to your car? I got lucky... I was trying to get back home when it all broke loose...the hail was hitting so hard that I thought it was going to bust my sunroof. Believe it or not, I made it thru without any damage.

I really don't know how I made it thru without damage. I pulled over on the side of the road cause I couldn't see anything. Then the wind changed and things were coming sideways.. then my car shifted about a foot and I thought "Here I go!" but thats all the movement it did. Takes alot to put a scare in an Army Ranger... and I was like, well here goes $45 grand...lol

thanks...it was pain staking coming up with the design to go with. Everything else seem to take away from the hood.
