Nice seats, I'm trying to figure out which ones I want, looking to get Ostrich skin ones. Glad you got the Kilis 20", those were my 22" Kilis I sold to Pierre, once you go over 600+RWHP 22s are no good.

Like what you've done

Well needless to say I'm partial to IBM. I have one of the early 2011,got mine in June 2010. With the care of mods and love you have put in this car is unbeliavble. I read your whole build & and looked at all pics. As far as money goes I feel your pain for empty pockets Been there done that and still doing it. Click on my sig. it will take you too the build. If you don't get up for COTW it shouldn't take long before you do.

Those Kilis are a heavy wheel, especially the 22", I dropped close to 100lbs by going with the 20" Nurburgrings.

So can you tell me about the Katzin interior. Do you just remove the standard coverings and work the new one on? Did you do it or have a shop do it? I know there's plenty of interior shops here in LA, I see them everywhere, just wanted to know if you did the seats and the difficulty level. How come you didn't do the headrests?

I guess you haven't seen my build thread, everything gets posted up, 100s of pics LOL! Just click my sig. I think you'll be impressed.


EDIT: Excuse my ignorance, but what is LLT?

Looks great. Put your Camaro in for COTW. One suggestion get better pictures taken not that the ones you've got here are that bad. Good luck.

And here is the cemetary shoot. Well I take pictures in an area that is not part of the actualy cemetary but in the property its a nice place to just park and get pics away from others and alone. I guess when I was taking the pictures at a new angle my phone fell out. After about 2 hours of destroying my house trying to find it I had a realization. So at night in the cold I went to go look for it at the cematary. I swear I could have seen slender man out there. In a needle in the hay stack situation I found it laying face down in the field. Thank god!

Hi Kronix the LLT is the engine that I have in my car and lol Ive seen your build many times I love the new wheels that you have I was just kinda lurking so I havent commented but I will. I let my dealership send the car off to get it worked on im sure they made the leather and then wrapped it all in all it was just over 1500 for the leather. Any other parts other than the seats were made custom by an uphostelry shop in Austin. I really wanted to do the head rests but ran out of money at the time.

Thxs for the great comments The understanding of the transformation of these beauties is the the misunderstanding of the people that own one. Far as better pics. have that guy send you a money order so you can hire professional picture taker to go with you when you spend his money order on more mods.

Lupe will take great care of you. He will set everything right the first time, and you'll likely be very happy with his work and his prices. Have fun with those doors and vents!
