Project Marauder

I recently had a flood of modes done to my 2010 2SS M6 Aqua Blue aka Marauder.

I took it to Fulmer's Auto Body here locally. Roy did an amazing job at painting the body kit and repairing some defects on my front and rear bumpers. I also had him paint the front and rear blackouts in Carbon Flash Metallic (Metallic Black). This color looks Incredible next to Aqua Blue Metallic.

Recent mods include in no particular order.

-3DCARBON Body kit and spoiler purchased from BilletAnything www.uniqueauto.com
-From Jonathan at AAC, Oracle SMD Concept sidemarkers, painted to match and tinted. www.automotivelightstore.com
- Custom painted Tail Light Bezels and Rear Bowtie from Lupe at River City Creations and Lighting. (Carbon Flash Metallic Bezel, CFM and ABM Bowtie)
-GM Heritage Grille
-Sparks restoration Red SS Emblem for the Heritage grille.
-Boat load of Adam's Polishes products.
-AAC High Powered LED Reverse Light's

On order.
Curb Alert from Southern Car Parts
Touch up paint

Previous Mods.
- Sullivan Racing Pedals from Ivan at Southwest speed. http://www.southwestspeed.net/
-AAC Oracle Blue LED conversion kit.
-Vinyl hash marks and spears from Xmicro_SS
-AAC Oracle Plasma DRL's
-fieldgoal00 DRL Harness
-AAC Illuminated Bowtie
-Dyed blue stiching...
-2SSRS (Ofer's) Dash ABL
-Stealth Box from Steve at SubThump.
-Stealth Auto Stealth Turn Signal bulbs
-MBRP Cat Back Exhaust
-Silver Painted Calipers with custom decals


I would like to mention everyone who has had a hand in this has done amazing work. I am absolutely impressed with everything I have purchased so far from all the Camaro 5 vendors. Thanks for helping make my Camaro ideas come to fruition. They have all been great to work with and have great products. Along with Fulmer's for the great Body work.


In the near future.

-Still trying to decide on a hood or not.
-Full Rally Stripes in Carbon Flash Metallic.
-Leather shifter and some other leather from Indpowr (Jon) at DSV Customs.
-AAC Oracle 8000 Kelvin HID Bulb replacement. ABL colored LED conversion and Footwell lighting. Back up light replacement. Liscense plate LED replacement.
-I have plans to do some custom one of a kind lighting in my door panels
-Painted interior panels to match.
-Painted to match Satellite antenna.
-Brushed Fuel Door.
-Custom Brushed finish Wheels.
-Long Tube Headers.
-CAM
-CAI
-Drop Springs and Sway Bars
-Possible Front Fascia replacement, either the ZL1 or the custom one being built out of FG by the person waiting to be a sponsor LOL


Now on to the pictures.

Yup, probably over the weekend, or next weekend. 30k on the stockers... not bad considering I have never had a set of stock tires last over 20k

Thanks TripleB and 3Camarosonhand.

It is the 3DCARBON spoiler that came with the kit.

Thanks! Yeah in person it looks amazing. I was worried about it because I had only seen pictures of it, just like with ABM I had only seen pictures of it, but when I saw it in person WOW. Same with the CFM.

Wow bro, your car looks really good! TBH I never really cared for the fender stripes, well at least I thought I didn't, but I'm really liking them on your car.

Hey Sketti, thanks Bud I appreciate it!

I was starting to get tired of them until I had all this recent work done on the car and I like them again. They will go away once I get my hood and Rallies painted on though.

Thanks again.

I can't decide what next big mod to do.

The money was originally for the Havoc rear diffuser, but i had to get a refund because it never came through so now I have the money burning a hole in my pocket.

Here are my current choices with the current available funds.

-Have my rally stripes painted
I was wanting to upgrade my hood them have them painted, but If I go without an upgraded hood I can do the stripes now. Plus I can't really decide if I want to do a hood or not...

-Lowering Springs and Sway Bars.
I wont ever track race, or at least not enough to warrant coil overs IMHO. This would officially be my second performance upgrade the first was the exhaust, I was wanting to finish the cosmetic mods first then move to the performance... but I really would like a lower stance sooner.

- Havoc Rear Diffuser
This would finish the GFX portion of the mods I started, it was originally to be done with the rest of the GFX but had issues getting it.

-Ofer's rearview mirror mod with AAC's back up lights.
I plan to do this before winter regardless so it will be done sooner whether now or in the next month or two.

Or save the money to do a hood and stripes. OR save for some LT headers.

However, I feel like the wheels are holding you back. A nice set of brushed wheels would really set it off. The F14s or Nurburgrings would look sweet.

Yeah I really do want a new set of wheels, but that is a huge expense. I just spent +$1,400 for new Extreme contact DWS tires for this winter, I figured I would get the wheels next spring rather than now and have them sit in the garage all winter.

I really like both of those wheels, they were my first choice (that style anyway) But I have gone back to a 5 star look like the straight 5's, but I really think I should go away from the 5 spoke look as my winter wheels (stock) will be 5 spoke.

Thanks for the input!

Wheels/drop are usually a first for me. It completely changes the look of the car. Can't wait to see it with the new wheels.
