1SS/1LE build

Hey guys, just bought this car and thought i'd start to document my mods. The car is a Victory Red 1SS/1LE with NPP the only option. I picked it up on 8/7/13 and drove it home in the rain I did not drive it untill the following Sunday and WOW...i love this car! Very strong power off the line and love the short throw ZL1 shifter and steering wheel. Mylink is very cool and so far easy to set up and use. I have ZL1 side skirts coming and some Emblempros underhood bowtie and black Camaro side letters. The car is in the upholstry shop now getting red houndstooth front seat inserts done. A ZL1 grill and rear diffuser are next and 1'' lowering springs to follow. Not sure if i'm keeping the matte hood wrap or not as i'm interested in the ACS ZL1 hood insert but thats a winter project so i have time to think about it... Anyway here's a couple pics for now. Mods so far..
1. Red houndstooth front seats,center console, door and dash panels.
2. Emblem Pros 1 LE custom emblems
3. BBK cai
4. ZL1 rockers and grill
5. RGB grill lighting
6. Airbrushed Captain America engine cover
7. Hydrodipped strut bar, fuse box cover, radiator shroud, stut tower caps and rear trunk drain panels
8. Custom trunk panel
9. ACS rear bumper extensions
10. Black lug caps
11. Matte blue hood wrap with white hash stripes
12. Painted front bow tie
13. Acrylic interior accents in black with SS logos by Diode Dynamics
14. RGB led fogs by Diode Dynamics
15. Matte blue rear spoiler and tail light bezels
16. Red anodized under hood bolts
17. Captain America badges from Emblem pros
18. Rohana RC22 wheels
