Lloyds mats, AFE CAI, AAC LED painted side marker lights, Technostalgia LED tail lights, BMR strut tower brace, GM ground effects kit, 12in Rockford Fosgate sub and box/with 1000 watt kenwood amp, Resonator delete added Edlebrock X pipe, bow tie delete, tinted windows, AAC SS emblems, Billet upper and lower grills, Vled switchback LED turn-signal lights, Jet power mass airflow sensor, polished billet oil catch can, polished stainless ABS cover (fuse box cover on the way) G2 painted calipers with red brimbo high temp decals, died red interior seat stitching, and most important no tacky vinyl stripes Custom painted with Black metallic pearl base leaving a black quarter inch outline with House of Kolors Majik Blue pearl stripes then pin striped with metallic silver when the blue flops in the sun and at night in the light it looks awsome......More to come its still a work in progress.
Rock On

Future mods: suspension bushings, sway bars with end links trailing and toe rods, rear lower control arms, sub frame connectors, drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads, color match xm antenna, Blade spoiler, Flowmaster Hush Power axle back mufflers,and last but not least wheels and they wont be blacked out =fugly, they wont be painted different colors=clown car, they wont have any lame pin striping on them or the tires, and they sure as hell wont be chrome=getto. They will however be highly polished 3 piece forged billet aluminum its what a wheel should be ...just my opinion tho and we all know what they say about opinions...
Not bad, I like the Tramp Stamp!

You call the hocky stripes tacky and you put on a cheap looking overlay grill that sticks out a foot? And for once, I agree with MikeSS, the wheels need some chrome instead of the high polished to go along with the "bling bling" theme. You could also put on some running boards on it to match your pawpaw stick on mirrors.

That's not bad, I want to get a custom paint job but all I see online are estimates ranging from 500 - 50k.

similar to this (can't really tell but it's pinstriped all around):

Exterior looks FANTASTIC!!!

I'm just wondering where the thread color for the interior came from??? Doesn't seem to go with anything else...is it orange or red?? Can't really tell from the pictures. If it is red, then I can see how it ties in with the red SS badge etc, but if it is orange...

I like the Blue on White. Very nice. Don't know if I agree with the side stripe (I'm just not a real fan of side stripes to begin with), but it's something unique none the less.

I think the wheels are holding it back as well JMO. I like the paint combo,but as said above I'm not a fan of the grill either, I think it takes away the predator look of the original or heritage grill.

Great job none the less and as long as your happy thats all that matters. We all have different tastes..

Enjoy!!
