Thanks for the ringing endorsement Solo I once CMS gets a little caught up, they'll be a picture up on the site and the ability to get a similar package. Once thing about Ryne @ CMS, he's extremely thorough and everything must be perfect before he lets me pick her up, we're just waiting on one more part that's being delivered today.

I've learned over the past 14 months that building a custom, one off takes a lot of time, patience, and the understanding that "bolts right up to stock" really means modifications needed!

That's right brotha, at least you can say the Ravens contributed to your build!!

I was there Monday checking stuff out & saw your whip, looking good bro! Team Antidote knows their shit & they're good people, I wish there were more shops like them with the same work ethics. I'm proud to have my whips part of Team Antidote!

You ain't seen nothing yet P, BIG changes are happening as I write this! Here's some sneak pics, the first one is the Hoe with the new Iron Bull bumper & Oracle lights. Then the other 2 pics, well lets just say that we're playing Dr. Frankenstien and they'll be a little bit of the Matte Military Green Escalade & the Matte Black Hood from the burgundy Tahoe when the Hoe is finished. Plus since we'll be taking both cars to SEMA this year for Team Antidote, Jake wanted to do some upgrades to my sound system and make a custom fiberglass sub enclosure......Sucks not having either car right now, but should have both by the weekend. I'm offering a case of wine to the shop that's done first!

No bro, no cabs for me, always have to have a car I have a Dodge Challenger that I rented, and it's being taken care of by Iron Bull. Not a bad car, more roomy than the Camaro I must admit. I always like to rent cars I've never driven, but I'd never buy a Dodge.

But the bottom-line, if I was happy with a stock whip I guess I would have a lot more $$$$ & a lot less aggravation, but it'll be good soon enough, then I can just drive & enjoy......until the C7

DAMMMNNN! Your Hoe is gonna be SICKK!!! I hope your going with those cab lights, because it makes it look like a diesel! sooo sick J! Ive driven my dads Avalanche, and I've been wanting to get him a bumper like that! The only thing I hate about GM's cars right now, is their inability to not insulate the sound whatsoever! How in the hell do you go about fixing that? I know my dad ADORES his truck, and i know he'd love to see his truck all mean looking like that. Future PARENT mod!

Thanks Bro, now you see why I wasn't/couldn't getting rid of it! The thing's a BEAST!! I did the same with the Hoe, that I did with the Camaro for the sound, actually the Hoe had the sound dampening material before the SS. But that's what you have to do for the sound pretty much with any car if you want it to sound good inside & minimize the metal rattle sound outside (But I think some bass heads like that )

I am getting the cab lights, I just have to wait for Recon to have them back in stock. Hopefully I'll be posting some pics of both whips come Friday

They're's quite a few things on the market, Accumat, Schosche makes a good product, I've used Second Skin for the last couple cars and have no complaints.

Oh.My.God I can't wait to see the final result. That matte green is going to be SICK. I think when its finished you should incorporate it in your sig.

Good idea Reed, I'll have to have my personal sig maker do a little tweaking and throw the Hoe in there also, since they're both

I was going to say the wait's killing me since I don't have either of my whips, but I'm so used to waiting with the Camaro build, that I know it's just part of the game. Better to be done right the first time! The bad thing is I'm starting to think of more mods

Here's the new Iron Bull front bumper with Oracle lighting mounted up.

Ok, so now I know what a junkie feels like P You have to remember, my builder, Cunningham Motorsports is 80 miles away, so I didn't want to keep driving it there, then getting a rental car every time I wanted to add something mechanical. So I figured just do it in one shot, like I did with the rear end. That's all buttoned up now and we're just doing some additions to the suspension. Ryne of CMS said that his dyno is really stingy on big HP cars, and he said it's right around 700 rwhp or 825 hp to the crank. So I just want to make sure everything is perfect & I take every precaution possible.

Believe me, now with both whips getting work done on them and I look at my empty garage and just see a Dodge Challenger in the driveway next to the wife's car, it makes me sick ....A Dodge! I'm 4 Life!

Besides the next few mods are cosmetic anyway And I think you'll approve brotha

Go BIG or Go Home, right Solo!! Without my cars I have too much time to read mags, surf the web and say hmmmm, I think I'll do that. I'm lucky to have a wife that doesn't care what I do to them......Except for when I bought the Camaro for my birthday, and she asked why we didn't discuss it...I used the old, well I just sold my boat and needed a new toy line


Ok so this mod only cost $35, powder coated metal license plate frame with engraved lettering. It'll be the last thing most people will see

You got it bro I already have my Bug Out bags ready & about 10,000 rounds of .40 cal & 5,000 rds of 9mm. Let's ROCK!!!! Just need some machine gun turrets on the roof!

Speaking of the Hoe, it's ready & I'm picking up tomorrow, so should have plenty of pics, then I pick up the Camaro Thursday, so everything should be back home by the weekend and it'll feel like I have 2 new cars! Plenty of pics to come.


Here's a teaser...
