Talking CGM 1LT- Progress pictures

Hey Guys, im starting a thread on my progress of my baby. I have a CGM 1LT RS that i picked up a year ago. Ive been slowly modding it and now due to a deployment to Iraq, i managed to do one massive upgrade on my car.
I want to thank Pete from Showstopper (and his infinite patience) for working on my car and getting it back to me while i was on vacation back stateside.

Here is what i had done so far.
G5CR 2010 Camaro Cold Air Intake
MPD1 hood- thanks Eric, the hood worked out wonderfully.
Racing stripes in ZR1 Blue
Brembo brakes upgrades (calipers painted in ZR1 Blue)
R1 concepts drill slotted rotors
Front bow tie painted in ZR1 blue
MRT V2 exhaust
LED side mirrors by showstopper (the most commented mod on my car)
VBIED emblem in same GM CAMARO font

Thanks Supaman,
Showstopper did an outstanding job on these. The cool thing is that the blue looks different in different lighting. i tried to capture that with the pictures.

I like how the stripes go into the slot, but not over the scoop. Looks cool...

More Progress pictures

Latest set of mods for my 1LT:

T2 scoops from ACS.
AACs fog lights. AAC fogs are so powerful they overpower the headlights if both are on.
Racing stripes continued to the rear trunk.
Installation of the retractable license plate (keep getting tickets for no front plate)


Pete at Showstopper has incredible talent on installing everything and making the car look awesome.


Here's a few pictures:
Top picture came out so awesome i made it look like a Camaro ad.

I bought them from Phastek for around 450. I bought them for 500 when they first popped up. Heres the link for you.

I never thought about doing my stripes like that. I assuming your not on a military base anymore? Only saying that because in our anti terrorism class they teach us not to put on military stuff like a National Guard or Veteran Plate or Bronze Star (got mine in Afghanistan also so congrats) on our vehicles. Heck, I can't even put a small Ranger Tab on my car cause they freak out at Fort Knox over that stuff. So either you are out or at a place that doesn't have as tight security as we do. Either way, your stripes are sick...great job.
