Sweet!
You weren't kidding bud! Next we need to get Ron's Wrap done :-D I also had some questions for ya about painting up a catch can. I'm going to snag one of the cans that Ron has laying around and I'd like it to be a nice bright red. (That's the theme I'll eventually be going with in my engine bay.) He tells me you're the DIY paint expert!

Yeah that's some major vinyl, but I'm confident we can do it. I saw a DIY for his stripes and the material seems very workable. We got this! MOD PARTY FTW!

Yeaaahhhhh Buddy! I know how picky you are with this type of thing so I'm taking this as a major compliment

I was wondering where the hell you were tonight kid! Especially after telling me how I leave work too often

You missed NOTHING tonight. Tourney central. I managed to rack up 4 downs between 6 and 9. I had to skidaddle. Go get that shit done already. Dude it's going to be stellar this summer. I can't wait to see that 1LE!

Thanks Becky!!!! I never would have thought that I would be doing so much to this car, and I'm just scratching the surface right now.

Unless the 6th gen is rediculously amazing. Then we will be talking again

So my buddy SSRS55 had an extra DRL harness laying around since he traded in his 2012 SS RS L99 for a non RS 1LE.

He did most of the work (since he'd done it before and it literally takes 5 minutes or less) but we got the harness into my SS, and now I have DRL's and Halos, or DRL's and full headlights Been wanting to do this mod for quite some time. I'm holding off on pics until I get my PW13 LED bulbs (also ordering a red interior dome/footwell light set from OFER on Gen5Diy)

He had a set of PW26x bulbs leftover from his old car that unfortunately didn't fit on mine since the connectors are slightly different. It looked as though we could trim the tabs on the connectors to make it fit into the socket, but the bigger problem was that the tabs that twist and lock the light itself into the housing just wouldn't line up. Would have been nice to get them on in one shot, but no big deal. Off to gen5diy.com to spend some more $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Pics coming when the parts arrive

Thanks again ERIC!!!!


BTW, we also did a side mod on Eric's 1LE.

Awesome build thread. I just traded up to a CGM and love looking to see what others are doing. I just made a build thread yesterday.

Nice! gen5diy is def the way to go! I got some LED DRL off of amazon and one burnt out fast and replaced them with AAC (which have been known to go bad too haha) but I have yet to hear anything bad about the ones from gen5diy..if and when my AAC ones fail def getting theirs.

Anytime kid..
Yeah that harness thing worked out well that I could let you have it... I can't believe I didn't know that my new car had fogs instead of drl's...having full control over the fogs from the headlight knob and being able to turn them on or off with my halos or halos with the projectors is just AWESOME!!
My garage is open to you anytime man, I love Modding...... and doing that with one of my boys is even better..
Thanks for helping me get those C5 stickers straight, I can feel the extra 20 horse by just looking at it,

Hey man also wanted to point out how awesome your car looks dirty... this is a great characteristic to have in a ride....

Talk soon man, look forward to helping you along with your footwell kit to, when ya get it!
Ofer is a great dude he'll set you up right!!

@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)
