Starting my build thread - 45th Anny 2SS/RS

Have a lot of goodies finally ready to get installed/painted this week, so wanted to start a build thread to track the changes.

Here it is basically stock and freshly waxed. Still my favorite pic to date because of the reflections and angle.

Only mod in this pic is blacked out kit from Headlight Armor.

First mod was blackout kit and window/light tints. Headlight Armor was really simple to install and definitely changed the look of the car drastically. Haven't been bothered by any police officers (knock on wood). Did have to try a few places until finding a "tuner friendly" inspection station, but after that no biggie.

The second I bought it I knew something had to be done about the lack of a rumble, so started shopping around for a cat back system. I chose to go with Stainless Works Retro Chambered cat backs and I love them.

Installed with a little help in few hours.

Now that the absolute basics were covered it was time to start the transformation of exterior.

JDP Color Changing halos looked pretty cool, so thought I'd go there next. They took longer than I thought to install (about 6 hrs) but worth the effort. Also upgraded the fog lights while we had the front end off.

Front end off for installing JDP halos. Was pretty strange seeing it like this but fun getting dirty.

I'm having Pfadt lowering springs installed tomorrow and Razzi Body Kit installed and painted later this week.

All this just in time for the Charlotte Auto Fair with the 5th Gen of Camaros of Carolina this Saturday. Will take plenty of good pics there of all makes

sounds like a great start ... tuner friendly inspection station is an interesting concept; does that cost more?

Thanks. Lowering springs put on yesterday. Definitely gives it a more aggressive look.
