Defusing Danger build 2013 AGM 1SS/RS

After some prompting from Camaro_RS I suppose I will start a build thread.

I ordered this car at the end of March and took delivery the first week of May. Prior to getting the car I had already picked out some mods I wanted and as of this post here are the pictures. So in about a month it has gone from stock to what you see here.


Got a call saying the car was here and hauled ass to get it!


After the detailing they let me pull it out of the bay.


Day 1 bone stock...wait til night fall.


Got it home from work and straight onto jack stands


With a little help, all of the badges and wheels were dipped before day 2.


Couple pictures from St George Island. Sorry about the bugs, I had just gotten back from Atlanta.




Not pictured yet are the footwell lights. Oddly enough those are the only pics I don't have yet. They were mod #2 if I recall.

Window Tinting done! 20% all the way around and there could be a 50% Crystalline on there too




While on a trip to Houston for some silly Ironman race I stopped in the Oracle store and grabbed the headlight halos. The scanner had to be shipped and I am still waiting on the DRL halos.

Front clip off. This is not hard at all. I actually got it all back together on my own...without hurting anything.


Headlights got baked of course. They came a part ok I suppose. Ended up cooking them twice each. Used a dremel to make sure they laid flat in the little black tray.


Headlights and scanner installed.


I should have the color matched showstopper side markers in next week and hopefully the ACS T4 splitter and rockers in this afternoon...no word on the DRL halos. Borla catback S-Type and CAI will be next.

I am super happy with the quality of the parts I have received and how the work has come out so far. There are few very minor things I need to touch up but overall I LOVE this car.

Thinking Guy Fawkes would be a good name for it.

Originally looked at this picture and thought of Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes from GI Joe but as I look at it more I see Spy vs Spy. Camaro_RS has far more show but I will get there...tomorrow!

Finally!!!!!!!!!


Black on AGM....looks sick, man. Stealth.

I still like the idea of Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. Hahahaha. Never thought of Spy vs Spy though. That's a good call!!

Guy Fawkes?! I dig it.

After you get your splitter and side skirts on tomorrow and on Fri we're going to have to get some MAD pics of the cars together.

Oh yeah.....did I say thanks for helping me with my lights??? Not sure if I did or not??

Thanks a ton!!!!

I'll get some better pictures today/night. I still have to snap the interior lights as well.

Anyone have thoughts on sequential taillights? I am kind of torn.

I like the sequential taillights. I haven't seen them on any 5th gens in person but I think I'd like them quite a bit. I've seen the technostalgia lights in person and I liked those as well. A local guy had those on his car but I think a lot of people have had problems with them. Not sure if that's the case with the sequential. Just my two cents.

Got a tracking number from AAC. DRL halos should ship next week. Showstopper side markers should ship today...I hope.

Hey, I saw your car yesterday without the grilles. You did all that in 50 minutes?! Ha. It actually looked pretty cool like that. It almost looked like you had a black or AGM Heritage grille at quick glance. Ever thought about the Heritage grille? That would probably look killer.

So....get the front clip all fixed and pretty again?

Yeah man it took no time at all. I am baffled at why people are so worried about the clips. Nothing ever even felt like it was gonna snap. It was almost too easy. I did look at grills lastnight but haven't seen one that really yells at me. There are a few on the radar though.

Just went by the shop. Front end is ready for paint. Prolly have it back tomorrow. Checked to see if the Sea Sucker bike rack would fit...it does!! At Bill Cramer now running numbers for the other AGM SS. Lol

The car modded in this thread is named Guy Fawkes...not to be confused with his brother Snake Eyes. Keep an eye out for the Snake Eyes build thread.
