I haven't been on in awhile so I'll try and bring everyone up to date with some bad cell pics lol

1. Replaced neon tube in trunk with blue led strip
2. Removed cats
3. Removed wheel well trim and lowered the car even more, and added the super sport decal
4. bought a set of 91 caprice tails and had them professionally painted with see through candy black paint
5. Bought and installed a set of clear euro style headlights
6. Best girlfriend in the world bought me a new dark blue Chevy emblem for my front grille

That's it for now, i've got a few more upgrades on their way to my house as i'm posting this, can't wait to keep going! All thoughts and opinions are welcome

Thanks guys, i'm trying to upgrade everything that needs to be beefed up for the track, going to take her out on road courses next season. I had some very successful auto x's, smashing an ls1 Camaro and multiple c4 and c5 vettes. But i've been too worried about over heating issues on a road course setting for this year

Have a few more recent updates. Blacked out the trim around the windows with plasti dip and gloss painted the rear emblem to make it a little more unique. Now i'm looking into new tires, winter is approaching fast (ice on roof in third picture) and i'm gonna need grip!

If you guys want faster updates, feel free to follow me on instagram at ekm1190.
