James' build thread, my 2011 2SS

After searching high and low, I found my car. My wife has given her the name of Molly, she is a 2011 2SS, 6 speed with sunroof. Car is completely bone stock and only has 23k on the odo.

Going to really watch my budget on this, buy what I can used and get the best parts for the best price on new items. I've been doing alot of research here and the knowledge base is well, phenomenal.

I've built a few over the top show cars but for Molly, I'm gonna keep it classy and tasteful.

Please join me in my and Molly's journey.

James

Parts are coming in by the boatload but here is just a few pictures. BMR springs which I had to paint blue to match the secondary color of the car, I got my wheels back from powder coating and my Gorilla lug nuts from Apex!

Just a lil progress over the past couple days, got my dash kit and Alpine in. Interior has been semi gutted and off to my painter. Painting all the silver pieces black with a blue pearl. Should have the springs installed in the next two days or so.

Springs installed, wheels back on the car. Looks much better with the 1.25" drop.
