Thanks Fenders & Fins for customizing our engine cover & ground effects package! I was skeptical about having it painted, but my husband really wanted it done. I agreed & really like how it turned out.

Cold Air Inductions, cold air intake.

First we have the cold air intake. Looks nice. Next.....I'm waiting for what he's telling me he's adding next.

kinda prefer the stripes/gfx/rims match.

MOMSREDSS 02-20-2011 10:00 PM

Thank you 2010 SSRS, Revo 1 & MontanaKnight.

2010SLVRBULIT, I had mixed emotions about painting the ground effects, however I'm happy with the final results.

I'll be careful. Our son sure enjoyed escorting me up to receive the trophy.

Your car is really nice, love the color:D, but I'm a little partial. Just remember it's mom's red ss, not husband's! lol

I have gone back and forth on my opinion of painted vs non painted ground effects, I'm going with the unpainted, as I like the contrast, plus it works with the black interior. Thinking of some kind of houndstooth interior inserts in the future....

BackinBlackSS/RS 02-22-2011 07:41 PM

That car looks FANTASTIC!!! :thumbsup: :headbang:

I share it with my husband. He resurches the modification ideas he has for upgrades & we are on the same page before new mods are done.

We both enjoy driving it.

Sounds like a good partnership! Hope you enjoy it for a long time to come! It's nice to be able to share a great hobby with the family.

MOMSREDSS 02-24-2011 10:22 PM

My friends looked at me & said, "It's red! Don't you know the police like to pull over red cars?".

This car just said........"take me home with you, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!". None of the other Camaro's called our names.

MOMSREDSS 03-09-2011 11:28 AM

I've recovered a bench in our garage & embroidered CAMARO on the seat cover. We might paint the wood black, we'll decide that this summer when the weather is warmer.

Last night I embroidered CAMARO on a blaket for our son to use.

I'll post pictures later.

bossbunny 03-09-2011 11:35 AM

Very nice... Can't wait to see how this thread goes... :D

And trust me modding is super addictive...

MOMSREDSS 03-09-2011 11:51 AM

Tonight we'll be talking about the parts we need to order.

The mods are about to begin. Husband ready? More than ready! Kids ready? You bet! Camera ready? Check. Am I ready???? I think so, I have a hard time looking at all the Camaro's being taken apart. Don't get me wrong, I have complete faith in the my husband & son-in-law working on my car, but I'm only use to seeing a Jeep all in pieces and always sucessfuly put back together. I guess I've seen our friends Mustang all apart being restored at our house, but it wasn't ours. But...the surgery is about to begin.

Yes, I will be out helping as much as I can. Time to hire a babysitter!

You know as soon as we start working on it the weather will be nice.... And I/we can't go out for a drive.

MOMSREDSS 03-09-2011 11:55 PM

Parts ordered
 
Just ordered the BMR Level 3 from Phastek and stainless brake lines from Pedders. Now I just have to wait for parts to show up.

Also ready to order ARH long tubes and SLP loudmouth II but waiting for price.

Hopefully I will have this all together by the time the sunshine decides to come pack to the pacific northwest.
