    Greetings from NJ

    Hi everyone,

    I've owned my red '12 LT for several years but just recently decided to start modding it. No idea what I'm doing, but I'm learning as I go, namely from cruzetalk and youtube. So far I've installed an aftermarket touchscreen stereo w/ CarPlay (had to learn how to solder which was fun) and just yesterday an AEM short ram intake (the sound is SO COOL).

    Planned modifications/improvements at the moment (feel free to weigh in):

    -LED DRL headlights, LED taillights, LED foglights
    -Repair of trunk latch
    -Maybe tints?
    -Maybe coilovers?
    -Maybe do something with the exhaust?
    -A whole buttload of dents/scratches that gotta be fixed

    This car is so fun to play with and I can't believe I'm just realizing this now!

    Here in the 100 degree Mojave Desert today I love my Tint which was complementary at Bradley Chevrolet Arizona with any full price purchase. Might be borderline illegal in my State of California. We can't have Tint or Guns or Grocery bags but we can grow pounds of Weed, Weird

    Here are some pics. Today’s project: installing new sparkplugs (mileage 80000 and intermittently rough idling).

    Also installed a shorter antenna to get rid of that god awful spaghetti-length one.

    Determined next projects will be new headlight assemblies > install LED DRL fog lights > fix broken trunk latch > plasti-dip wheels black and gloss, paint calipers red > de-rust rotors and drum brake covers > touch up dozens and dozens of chips in the paint and scratches.

    I’m gonna have my hands full.
