Hey y'all! So I'm a little late to this party, but I wanted to throw up a build thread to document the progress I've made on my car.

She started out as a bare bones 1LT/RS. Almost two years and 45,000 miles later, I'm really happy with the way she's coming along. Constant work in progress!! I've done a few dozen mods but I still have several things under my sleeve. A lot of people don't realize how much work I've put into the car because most of it is factory-ish upgrades or things you can't see, but I do have 8 trophies for her, which makes it all worth it! I've done 95% of these installs myself, including the leather-- which I will NEVER do again! :lol: And wrenching on a basically new engine was certainly nerve-wracking the first few times (I was freaked out the whole time I was installing the VMAX Black Ice-Olator) but now I've gotten used to it and don't mind tearing it apart to make improvements!

A little go and a lot of show, here are the mods currently on my girl. And then some pics of her in the next couple of posts.

And a few more! These are more recent, including the brochure I had signed from the amazing Mike Judge and build team at Oshawa, the leather, custom aqua blue stripes and door panels, new CAI, interior lighting, rear diffuser with square exhaust... and of course the license plate.

L8RBOYS. :D

Thanks!! On those, the car was in the body shop because my dad backed into it in his truck. I stripped the carpet off the stock panels and had the dealer spray them ABM and add it to the paint tab. Haha. Call it pain and suffering ;)

And when I install the Brembo's I'm going to do just that!
