So far this is my work in progress. Keep in mind that I am 18 and have almost no mod experience before this car. Any advice or ideas is appreciated.

Titanium headlights and fog lights


Temporary subs and amp until I fabricate my box for my four 8" subs and amp stand


Carbon Fiber Vinyl (work in progress, as I still have a lot I wish to do)

Door Handle:


Center Vents:

Plan to do center controls and shifting module when I learn how to take it out.

Side Vents:


Pillars:



HID Headlights: (Will soon have them in the fog lights as well)


I will post more pictures when I finish more.

Looks like a lot of work. You've got some patience and talent.
It does take quite a long time to properly set the tape and form it to each part correctly without bubbles or folds. Took about an hour for each vent I would say, maybe longer. Pillars were about 15 minutes each, but I may be redoing them as they are wrinkling slightly at the bottom.

I know how that feels. DiNoc is a lot more forgiving than the vinyl on the head lights and tail lights. That sucked...
If I were to put any vinyl on the headlights and tail lights then I would over size it and cut around it to exactly fit with an exact-o knife. This is what I did with the pillars. I plan on doing the chrome grill strips and the matte black trim skirting around the car when I have more time.

Well yeah... what I'm saying is that DiNoc is way easier to use than regular vinyl tint.. It's a completely different animal. Good luck [chairfall]

Lol, yeah I watched the movie, but I wouldn't buy a GM just for an Autobot themed car. I test drove the Chevy Cruze and hated it.

It's called ez-lip. Got it for $35 on eBay. It's a type of foam that's really durable and just sticks on with 3m tape. I think it's worth it.
