So far so good! Nice start! Definitely looks better without the Camaro badges. The tinted sidemarkers are also a huge improvement!

Hey haven't updated in awhile guys. I haven't had Internet due to a move and won't have it for another week! Have to do it all on my phone. But!! I got confirmation that Ofer is sending out my halos, had to get them built cuz Deke736 sold my the control box from JDP to upgrade to the night owl system. I also found a steal on a MRT 2.0 Axelback that I will be hopefully picking up tomorrow and having installed this weekend. I also have blacked out my bowties and taillight bezels and will have pics up as soon as I get that Internet!! It seems like its coming along nicely!

Here is the emblems being removed and new tinted sidemarkers installed

I had these painted door inserts in SIM that were originally painted Blue. I used nail polish to remove the paint.

Last Mod which was this weekend was adding the gently used Vararam Intake (Don't mind the dirt, it was installed and then cleaned):
