@Lgndryhr Thank you for the compliment! I agree that CGM is a GREAT color, and like SSRS55 says above us... they look GREAT dirty! HAHA. I had to go to his house last night, which is a 30 minute drive for me and I got caught in rain. There's still some yuck on the roads here in NY and I showed up COVERED in salt. We were both in awe of the raw beauty of filthed up CGM!!! LOL I will stop by your thread and give your car a look. I'm sure it's awesome.


Guys one thing about a 275/315 front/rear setup that is flush with the fenders: It kicks up a LOT of crap onto your car if you don't have fender flares or GFX!

I can live with it though!!

@Kevin I've read about the issues from AAC's fogs, and it's surprising since their lights are twice as expensive as others. Not sure why though their product looks so nice. I'm pretty sure Eric had the lights from Gen5DIY and they looked spectacular on his 2SS, they look great on his 1LE also. I can't wait to get mine ordered. Spoke with OFER today and hopefully he will have a package set up for me by the weekend.


@Eric 20 Horse minimum could be more with your mods. Plus I helped you put them on. Easy +5-10 HP with increased response in the low to midrange.

I decided to throw up a pic of my DRL's operating with the stock DRL bulbs and headlights so that it can be compared easily later.

I've got a set of P13W's on the way from Gen5Diy, as well as red LED footwell and dome lights, wired to a switch that will let me control the foot well lights independently of my dome light. SSRS55 has the same setup and he wired it up to put the switch into the cigarette lighter. I had to copy this once I saw it since it looks so sweet.

I also got a chance to visit with Spike III yesterday and he had a "present" laying around his garage for me. An aluminum cup holder insert. I've wanted one of these for a while so here's a pic of that too! I'm thinking of painting it a gloss red, but may hold off until I do more interior mods. I would like to eventually have the center console painted by Lupe, as well as adding 2ss door and dash panels. Either way, here's a pic of the new cup holder insert! My first interior mod, from the guy who has hands down the SICKEST interior in any 5th gen I've ever seen. Thanks Spike!

Last pic is of my car at the end of the day after being waxed and washed. Can't WAIT for more nice weather so I can get some proper pics up here. (yes, it's photoshopped. god forbid we actually get some sunshine here in NY)

Looks really good,especially that interior cup holder cover. The lady of the house should be very happy with you. The cheapest mod to date you have installed & the easiest.

Oh she's happy with me alright LOL One more mod and I'm on the couch :-( LMAO I need to really start prioritizing or I'll be living in my camaro JK. She's a saint I swear. She knows the car makes me happy. So she puts up with my constant talking about it, spending money on it etc.

Thanks again for the cup insert Spike! Looks great in there.

Thanks to you too Mike! You know your car is a bit of an inspiration for me (may not look it yet, but I love and plan to emulate a few of the mods that you've done)

Thanks guys!

New DRL's from Gen5Diy

I love the way they look, MAJOR improvement over the factory driving lamps. Paired up with the harness I can roll out with my halos and DRL's whenever I want.

It definitely made maneuvering the vinyl much more painless, I think the solution also makes pulling the air bubbles out from beneath the vinyl easier.

Had a rare night out on the town with no kids last night. While it was raining out, and the wife got some "demon" eyes in the pic, I still love the picture. Figured I'd share here

Hahahahahha

No I have to work, Wednesday I am getting the stripes on at this place in Dewitt. Figured it would be easier than trying to get mine, yours and Ron's schedules to match up.

Thanks so much Mike and Jose! COTW would definitely be an honor, I'm a ways off from that level of win I feel like I need to add a few more personal touches, some interior paint work like the two of you are sporting. Also, after driving on the track I want to do a little suspension work too. I'm pretty much only doing small stuff for the rest of this summer though. Ballin on a budget ftw here haha.

I definitely loved the interior work on Puertoricanfont's car. I'm going to give River City a call once I get caught up from the last round of mods and see what kind of magic he can work on my plain jane 1SS interior.

Mike, Glad your catch can issues got resolved. I was looking forward to meeting you and seeing Big Red in person! Pics never do these cars justice.


Gotta say those laps were addicting. I cannot WAIT to go again.

Some pics from the glen added to page 1 of this thread, first post. Few more pics on the UpstateC5 thread. I suck =/ I didn't take enough pics at all. Most of them were of my car too. I really wanted to get some good pics of the rest of the group but I was EXHAUSTED. I was running on pure adrenaline while on the track and I crashed out pretty bad, especially after eating at the restaurant. I didn't even stay for the go karts, which looked like a BLAST. Like I said in the club thread, I'm taking the night before off and sleeping so I can be a freaking human when we all meet up. My level of tiredness can generally be equated to how many times I say "duuude" in a sentence.

I think my average conversation on sat was like: "Duuude, that was awesome Dude!" Or "Duude your lights are baller tho Duuude" I think I regress into my teenage self when I'm delerious HAHAHA.
