Thank you!

The blue in those pictures isn't actually lighting. It's a fabric trim I inserted around the door trim. I can post a link to how to do it once I get to my pc. A guy did a great tutorial the other day on this.

I bought some 3D Carbon Vented fenders off eBay yesterday. Hope to get them next week and install them during the weekend. Got them for a steal!

Got my fender vents in and painted the mesh.






Matches my stripes perfectly! Might install these today if I get home at a decent time.

You're going to cut into your car? Please videotape. You have a GoPro helmet cam right?

They look good, man. I was going to order a set, but then I would have to remove my custom decals. Good luck with the install.

I did. Crazy thing is... these are actually mustang ones so they're not 100% correct They're smaller and the guy that sold them to me on eBay said that they're Camaro/Mustang vents. I looked up the color code on them and they are the same color so I went ahead and got them. After installing them I realized they're smaller than the Camaro ones. They still look good to me, but eventually I will be getting the Camaro ones that fit the lines better. Ugh. I'll get some better pictures once it stops snowing here and my car is not as dirty..

I lost my case to my GoPro somewhere haha. I have no idea where it could have went. Actually got my cousin to install them he works at a body shop.

I've been so busy moving into a new house I haven't had time to post pictures. Hopefully during this move I'll find the GoPro accessories..

The headlights weren't too bad. Got a little frustrating at some parts because you have to get to some screws you can't see. I also baked my headlights to paint them, that was EXTREMELY nerver racking! They seem to be sealed really good though but I plan to open them again and do demon eyes when time allows. Definitely go with the JDP kit if you want an easier halo install. Go AAC if you're looking for super bright halos.

Also got some shoes to match my car, haha.

Thanks a lot, your car is amazing. I love the 2 tone colors. If I were to win the lottery I'd paint my top half a blue and bottom half black.. Would be awesome in my opinion.

I know and now we've got the same headrests that's crazy. I used the same color. It looks great, I did grey primer over everything then a light coat of black then sprayed the blue - changed the color slightly. Awesome job on all the stuff you've got painted so far.

Plasti dipping my wheels black again with a new twist. Hopefully it looks good in the daylight.. looks pretty neat right now while painting them. While the plastidip is still wet I am doing a light mist of blue metallic spray paint over top of these so they will hopefully have a slight metallic look to them.
