Snake Eyes build

Long story short, in the last month I have bought two yup two AGM 1SS/RSs. I do not intend on posting anything further on the Defusing Danger build thread. This build will take longer than the other one but it will look good when I get it finished.

Ideas and recommendations welcome. Below is the blank slate.

Snake Eyes!!!

Okay....mine now has a sort of nickname whenever we're together.

Storm Shadow.

Ideas and suggestions for your blank slate??

I'll throw in that you should do everything to this one you did to DefusingDanger....but also DRL halos, Havoc rear diffuser, and a Heritage grille. Those are just some options....considering there are so many things you can do!!!

I know it's gonna be bada$$ whatever you do!!!

For sure man. DRL and headlight halos, scanner, NS-1 stripe kit. I was thinking the OEM ground effects rear diffuser but I will have to shop around. I would really like to bogart your lower LED idea. Just have to find a way.

First mod was to dip all the badges, camaro emblems, and the wheels.

Second mod was to install the Showstopper side markers. I had them body matched but not tinted or ghosted. Idea is to keep it as legal as I can for now. These markers are bright. They will light up the car next to you no problem.

Here is a shot of the side markers off. They still have the reflective properties and look sharp.

Today I hope to have the rally stripes installed and the windows tinted. Not sure how I will like the stripes but they were free. As I mentioned I plan on a NS-1 kit at some point.

Absolutely. All those are really good ideas. I actually really like the OEM ground effects rear diffuser as well. I also like the NS-1 kit idea! You'll have to find a way somehow to get those lower LED's. They're def unique on the 5th gen and look awesome. Too bad the Razzi front splitter didn't look sweeter (IMO) on the SS because you could just do that if it did.

Also...I checked out your car this a.m. You got a lot done last night! LOL. Wheels, sidemarkers, tail light bezels, bowties. That's what I call a good night's work.

We were up til 1 working on it. The wind was a son of a gun. I went back over the wheels this morning. I am going to have to peel and redo two of them. They aren't bad but not good enough for my taste. I will get those close ups soon.

Yes there is a lot going on. Hope to start getting parts in this week. By next weekend the head light halos and DRL halos should be up and running. Still trying to decide how I want to do the interior.

I got a box in the mail!

Also ordered a controller from AAC, some heat shrink, quick connects and 40' of extra RGB wire. You will never see any hint of wires.
