Adicians Black SS/RS Leo

Hey everyone, I figured I'd finally post up some pictures of my car now that the new hood is done.

Here are some specs:
  1. GM GFX kit painted black
  2. Heritage grill
  3. Weathertech floor mats and trunk mat
  4. AAC Red footwell and overhead lighting
  5. RPI designs tail light and side marker blackout
  6. Painted engine cover
  7. Katzkin Black and red leather seats
  8. Anvil Auto Spoiler
  9. AD Revolution styling hood

Mods in progress
  1. Interior trim gauge bezels etc painted red
  2. Showstoppers underhood kit in Black and red
  3. T3 red stripes painted
  4. powdercoating wheels and pinstriping red
To be done
  1. Magnuson Supercharger
  2. Some sort of headers, cam etc
  3. tune

I'm actually looking to get sponsored for the SC and buying the rest myself. We'll see if anyone wants to be the only name on my camaro though. Haha.



Little bit of backstory for my camaro: I wanted a project car so I got one. The end.

Here it is the day I picked it up.




Lights


Car seats installed



And here it is as it sits now.













Oh yeah, one last thing. All work, and I mean ALL work on this car was done by me. I like doing things myself, and I've saved around 2K so far in installs alone, which is great because an exhaust is next on the list.

Let me know what you guys think!

Looks great man. Do you have a paint booth or do you just do it outside?

Your car looks awesome. I'll think I'll drive my Camaro down to your place so you can help me with my mods since we live so close...

Welcome to C5 we're glad to have you here. Lori

I use the paint booth at a local body shop that gets a lot of insurance work... they supervise and give me tips. It's not a hack job though, I'm not a bad painter.

I know if I messed it up they would have re-done it, for a price.

Sounds great Lori! I'd be more than happy to help, and that is not a hollow offer.

Carbon fiber. I ordered it recently and had it within a week, in a giant cushy box. They did well on telling me when it would arrive too.

and thanks!

Right off Anvils site. I knew I'd be painting it so it didn't matter to me whether or not it was matte carbon or satin carbon fiber. It got to my doorstep in around 8 days total. Not bad for a 6 foot by 2 ft box.
