MackMan's 2010 2SS/RS "Cazador"

Welcome to my new build thread! I went from having a Black 2011 1LT/RS to a Inferno Orange Metallic 2010 2SS/RS manual.

Exterior mods:
Heritage grille
MPD1 Z-Force Hood
20" TSW Nurburgring Wheels
Lowering springs (I believe it's 1")

Interior Mods:
None at the moment. Has orange and black leather seats. Going to tackle dash ABL soon I hope.

Performance Mods:
Borla exhaust
CAI


My old car:


My new car "Cazador" day 1:


Cazador day 2 morning (Swapped hood to a black one to take back to my V6):


Cazador day 2 evening:
Swapped the hood and put my TSW Nurbugring wheels on it





Cazador, for those who don't know is an orange wasp that is also called the tarantula hawk! These things look evil!

I went from the Inferno Orange to the Black... Orange was much easier to maintain.

Congrats!

Thanks! That's one of the reasons I wouldn't have black again. Can't beat a clean black car, but dang does it get dirty quick!!

Those things are real?! I had only heard if them as mutant bugs in a video game called "Fallout: New Vegas." Car is coming along nicely, though! I didn't realize you no longer had the V6.

CAI installed! Waiting for the seal to work with the MPD1 hood. Can definitely feel the difference!

Awesome! I can't wait to update my halos. I need them brighter (and whiter) to match my led strips.

You going to paint that hood to match or leave it black?

I'm planning on painting it matte black within the next couple weeks. I've toyed with the idea of color matching but I'm gonna stick with the black cause it looks more aggressive to me. I thought about doing hood spears in orange though. Still trying to decide on that though.
