This is an awesome and obscene use of LED's. I love it and all the DIY aspects of it. Good job! Hope you don't mind me making a few notes for my future projects.

Thanks I'm going to look into getting some small loom that'd be an easy fix. Not sure why I didn't think about that haha. Also, you can just click my signature for my build thread.

Engine bay almost done!!!

Finally finished the engine cover. I ended up not thinking the gold and chrome bow tie went with the overall theme. Yes, it matched the one on the grill, but wasn't quite right for the EC. I re-did it orange in the middle with black boarders and it is in the air box. I plan on putting a label on it, SS/RS which will be dark on a lit background.

The removal of the first bow tie ruined the paint underneath. Well, the front was never perfect anyway so I repainted it. Boy, I have gotten better Check out the near-perfect mirror finish in the carbon flash metallic underneath the front bow tie. Nice!!! BTW, I waxed the older stuff, 3 coats :P

First 2 pics are in daylight. Next 4 are of just the engine cover lighting on. Last three are wit the dream color on showing red. Turned out very nice!!! Really more artwork, then functional at this point

I also added pic's of the redone cowl or windshield wiper piece. Shows how much of a perfectionist I am. All told probably 25 hours in this piece. Yup, I completely redid it even the lettering. Wet sanded and buffed to perfection!

Off to the races!

Every once in a while the Red Cross has a blood drive with a give-a-way here in Vegas. I should donate every time I can, but I never miss free stuff! This time I got free tickets to a show and a truck race at the Speed Way. Also found out my girlfriend Rita and I are both Type 0 Positive and negative for C & V. Apparently very desirable as less than 15% of the pop. has it and our blood is the only kind babies can take.

Probably my favorite part was getting a chance to take these great photos! Their was security, but I did it gorilla style on the fly!!! The tunnel pic's turned out awesome!

My baby's feature debut!!!

A while back I had an opportunity to have my car featured in an upcoming Russian language music video here in Vegas. Guy, Armen, was a dancer in a local show featuring Joey Fatone, Dancing with the Stars live at the Tropicana.

Well he wanted a car for a bikini car wash scene, ummm ok A night scene on Las Vegas Blvd and a desert drift scene not my baby so we used a red rental car. Most won't notice in the vid my car is IOM and the drifter was red. They also had me drive for the drift scene, lots of fun!!!!!!!

Can't understand the words, but video turned out awesome!!! What's not to love, babes, Vegas, drifting and my Camaro!!!!!!!!!!

Before and After pic's!!!

Just wanted to look at some 3 year old photos and current of my interior. I think I made some custom tasteful changes. Plus, she's held up over time and still looks brand new!!!

Now this is what I call artwork!

Recently I bought a "cheap" non-DLSR camera that also shoots HD video. I bought it for the video, but it can't compare to my JVC Camcorder. But boy did I have fun with the special effects it can do!!! These are done mostly with the "painting" effect. Pretty cool

You guessed it, more photos of my lights ;)

Had to try out the new camera at night with all my silly lights. I mostly installed them to take sweet photos like this

Enjoy!!!
