I got my 45th the day before Thanksgiving here in PA. It's an RS with sunroof. Minor mods, I put blue LEDs in the interior dome light & trunk light. Got a nice license plate frame, picked up the 45th floor mats, splash guards and Drake Bowtie delete for front. I would like a car cover that is good for both inside & outside, black with striping to match what's underneath. I am having some issues with iPod static so for now I am using a Sansa Clip+. Pictures coming soon.

I also got my footwell lighting installed the week before. Right not it's just tied to the dome, but I may add an override switch at some point to keep them on without the dome sometimes.
hey how much did the footwell lighting cost i have the leds to put in they want $150 per well to make them come on with the lights

About 5-10 bucks for a few supplies at radio shack. But that counts some extra wire I picked up and stuff. Took me like 20-30 min at most. Wasn't too bad, there are a few great tolutorials on the site in the dyi section.

Of course that doesn't count the lights themselves. I managed to get them for Xmas.

Gorgeous weather today, freshly washed/waxed pony car...

Needless to say I was out showing off my ride. I had a few errands to run and when the list got near the bottom I started making up more things I needed to do so I could keep rolling. Got a LOT of stares and double-takes. A couple of folks grabbing their buddy and pointing...

I'm not in it for the ego strokes but hey, I'm human. I can't help but smile when it happens.

It was a good morning.

Now for my good afternoon I'm about to take my way-too-f'n-fast bike out and carve some twisties.

I hear you all the way! Detailed my baby today and threw my new Lloyd "Camaro SS" mats in Red in there. Lovin the look and for those wondering the mat color to get was "Ebony". My dad got Lloyd mats for his '08 Avalanche and the carpet and mats were slightly a different match. Figured I'd give those with the 45th a heads up on what mat to get. Also ordered the backseat mats as well. Heck, no one hardly ever gets back there, but this is just good re-assurance for me.



Unfortunately I don't even want to drive out of my own driveway cause it's gravel (and 1 mile long) so it gets dusty every time.
However, I'm headed to my roommates house in the morning cause we're caravanning the 230 miles back to school and I'll hose the "Black Widow" off there.

Great pics! I always love seeing pics of the 45th inside and out. Even though I can walk outside and sit in mine, it's still so cool to look at. I'll never get over it.
Well one of my first suggestions is floor mats, lol.
But my first mod which I think should be everyone's first mod is the P13W LED bulbs. They make a WORLD of difference transforming the look of the car. If you walk outside and hit your lock/unlock button you'll see how the Halos stand out from the DRLs because the DRLs aren't LED, they're just regular headlight bulbs. Throw in those P13Ws and you'll be soooooo happy. I know I was!
I paid $45 for my set off ebay. No need to fork over $100 to specialty distributors and whatnot. Also for those wondering, you do not need the one's that have a harness. Those are for NON-RS cars.


As a future interior mod I'm considering getting a red "SS" sewn into my headrests. I wish Chevy had put the "45th" logo in the headrests as well as the seats. The headrests look kinda bland IMO.

Also I want to run the interior light behind the trim on the dashboard so it will light up with the rest of the car. I think that'd be sweet!

Congrats! You are now the owner of what I think is one of the best looking cars around (hence the fact that I own one too).

Welcome to C5.

I've heard about the 45th mats but have yet to see 'em. Look forward to seeing your pics when you get them!

I'm going with adding more Red SS stuff as opposed to specific 45th badges. I might end up blacking out the car so spicing it up with red SS badges should look cool IMO. Plus it runs with my whole "Black Widow" theme.

Floor mats look good, but i think I'd prefer the ones I've got now. The Blu LED looks great too.

High, I like your SS mats also. Do they make similar RS mats? I am considering LEDs for fog lights. Also, I have the mirrored stainless small gills (sigma shaped) that I have not yet put on, need some warmth to do that and haven't gotten around to breaking out the space heater.

Yes they do make them for RS cars as well.
Here's what I got but in RS: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Ca...item589182add2

Remember, you need ebony, not black.
