My AGM 2SS/RS 1LE Build

I never did a Build thread for my current 2011 1LT/RS, but with the new 1LE days away from being built , I figured I would put up my ideas and some of the Mods I'm going to purchase this week and go from there, not gonna go crazy from now, but the Mods I'm sure will pile on as I go.

Here we go: Starting with a Ashen Gray Metallic 2SS/RS:
  • Navigation Option
  • NPP Exhaust
  • 1LE Package


Mods:
  • AGM Fully Ghosted Sidemarkers
  • Matte Black Front and Rear Bowties
  • Matte Black Tail Light Bezels
  • Blacked out Camaro Lettering
  • Black Gorilla Locking Lug Nut System
  • Camaro SS Blacked Out License Plate Frame
  • Apex Skip-Shift Eliminator
  • AGM Painted Heritage Grill

Pickup Day:








First Detail:






















Rainy Day after the Gym:

What GS Stripes? I was working on getting a set of NS-1 Stripes like Deke's kit, but after seeing how difficult vinyl is to keep looking good, not sure I want to add anything else

Ghost- I recently bought some Chemical Guys Matte Detailer and it does a really good job taking care of the finish. Since you have an entire hood to take care of, you may want to check it out:

I think I got mine from one of the sponsors on here.

Thanks Deke they had a sale on the Matte Detailer $10 for a bottle instead of $25. Thanks for that I ordered some I will try it when I get back from vacation.


Thanks Ivan I agree Dekes car looks great and he has that kit, if I can figure out how to keep Matte clean I'm going to get a set but until then not gonna happen.

Soap in water is all that's needed. Quick Detailer in between washes and your good.
