Then it got retinted by Aspen Autosound putting 20% over my 35% and 30% on the windshield.






Next was the aftermarket headlights. I believe they're 2nd gen projectors. As well as a Pioneer Avic D3 headunit.




Then Rims and tires. The rims are ALT Sonix Black and the tires are BF Goodrich G-force KDW 225/45/17





Lowered on Eibach Sportlines (but no pics of it prior to the next step).

Then came the big dog stuff.
It got sent out to Paint werx to get two toned, black ontop and the stock silver on the bottom. A pin stripe in between the two colors and an airbrushed shadow. The black and the pin stripe was carried onto the headlights and the pinstripe faded out towards the end of the headlights.
They also installed a G5 GT front bumper, cobalt ss/sc front and rear diffuser and side skirts.











Then we installed leather SS heated seats and TWM Performance short throw shifter with weighted gun blue shift knob. Cobalt gauges.



Then came the engine mods. Faux Granite Ported eaton M62, dual pass endplate, stage 2 injectors, harness, belt and pulley. Over the top performance heat exchanger. SS/SC exhaust. Faux granite fuse box cover and valve cover. Trifecta tuned.




It's now got power windows and locks. SS leather door panels. Faux granite dash trim to match the engine.



No pics of the doors just yet.

That's all for now. We have a 2.8 pulley and 60lb injectors waiting to go in. We're also going to need to upgrade the clutch as it can't handle the new power. We'd eventually like to suede the headliner.

We're waiting for my clutch to come in. The stock one's not so happy about the power jump. Then we'd like to dyno it and get it to the track. The problem with the track though is I'm a little nervous to launch it properly cuz the ss's are known to break driveshafts
