For adding more power to the car, i have some of the parts for my power adder but need a set of LS3 heads and intake, so the car is not down for more the a week or so.
I'm excited for this. Are you using the light pipes?

So as some of you know i am making my new front Fascia, It will be based on the OEM front Fascia with cut outs to make it look as close as i can to the Jay Leno/ Transformers 3 Fascia, There is a lot of work to do 2 new grills and fill in the mail slot, then cut the 2 air inlets, and last i need to cut and set the lower grill in deeper.

Stay tuned i will post some pics in here and update this thread.

my interest has raised
and im wondering how ur all ur lights look

coz whats most important to me is
the symmetry in all of the lights.. for them to look professional you know what i mean?well symmetry between the 2 inner lights.. and symmetry between the 2 outer lights as the inner and the outer r different sizes

That sucks, but at least it you've had it this long before it happened!! Mine was hit (sideswiped on the highway) not 18 hours after my purchase. The guy got his 3rd DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, not reporting an accident, open container, and failure to exchange insurance information!! And while my car was getting taken care of at the dealership, my rental was a Hyundai something that was TERRIBLE! Can't wait to see what you do, cause I know it won't be back to stock!
