Just added Amber grill lights, amber CCFL footwell lights, and flush mounted blue led switch's. With the footwell switch off the lights work with the dome light and the with the switch on they come on anytime, car on or off. With the grill light switch off they work with the running/headlights with switch on they come on, car on or off.

You should swap out the wheels! It would totally change the way your car looks!

Here's some more. I have to give thanks to the feds for taking to much out of my paycheck so i can spend it later Any way installed CAI cai with an apex scoop. I also ordered a ported throttle body but its back ordered so im waiting:( I also moved the Catch can away from the computer. I love the deeper louder roar the CAI gave the engine. I know its no good but i love the sound when accerateing at low rpm's. I also angered myself when putting the cover on the CAI my hand slipped and my screwdriver scratched my new CAI on the pexiglass top. But it happens. Im still happy with the looks and sound though. You can see the scratch in the last pick its coming from the corner screw down to the right.

Big shout out to Emblem Pros for an amazing set of custom badges at a great price. The orange is so glossy you can see your self in it. I love the look they just melt in with the car.

Here's some more. MGW shifter with retro knob. Untill my custom shift knob comes in i have a 8 Ball shift knob from auto zone...it sucks. But the MGW shifter rocks love the throw. MGW needs to include specific instructions for the V6 as it is a bit different. But it still only took about 2 1/2 hours by myself and PS make sure the insulation is cut close around the install bolts and pushed all the way down together to cut out any noise. Anyway my VMAX ported throttle body came in. Painted IOM. I only took it for a short drive but i can tell the throttle lag is gone it accels so much better.

Well ive tried Plasti Dip and while it is a good product im just not good at using it. I plasti diped the rear tail light bezels and those turned out great so i decided to try my luck on the interior dash and door inserts. I do not like the finish the color is inconsistant and in the doors i got spots and i have no idea how they got there but until i save up for some real ABL IOM inserts this will have to do. I think the doors need a few more coats but i ran out of paint. I have the glossifier but i didnt use it. BTW while i was taking off my doors i noticed an extra conector that was not being used i think it is for ABL but i didnt think the conectors were there if the car didnt have that option installed? Any way heres the pics. Oh yea and i used the factory Camaro emblems plasti diped them and super glued them on. ( i wished they look as good in the pics as they do in real life)
