2. Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs
3. Flowmaster Cat Back Exhaust (40 series)
4. Caliper Covers
5. Street Scene Ground Effects
6. Sinister Hood
7. MDP1 Rear Spoiler
8. Heritage Grill
9. Powder Coated Wheels
10. Blackout tail Lights
11. Custom Matte Black Stripes
12. Painted Rear Exhaust Diffuser (or whatever its called)
14. Side marker whiteout kit
15. Tinted Windows
16. Blue interior/trunk lights
17. AAC Wire kit with new LED DRL Bulds so they work with halo's at night
18. Pioneer Double Din Navigation/DVD Unit AVIC-Z120BT
19. Garmin Navigation 1300 GPS (so I can watch movies/music videos and get navigation while driving)
20. Belkin Radar Detector

Future mods:
1. Underhood engine detail (white accents)

This is what she looked like when I first bought her in Oct. The first thing we did was tint the windows.

Second.. Powder coat the wheels to match

Then added the GPS.. I love the location as it is not visible thru the windshield.

Painted the rear defuser and had the stripes taken over the spoiler, blacked out the rear tailights and put Retro RS Badging on it. New Flowmaster 40 series were also installed and the BBK CAI

I was not happy with the way the paint was yellowish on my front bumper, back bumper, gas cap so I bitched to GM enough (where I purchased my car) and they said they would have have all that repainted on GM. Since I had also extended my stripes into the front bumper, they agreed to restripe the car also. So I figured this was the perfect time to add the ground effects and new hood (thank you tax refund). So this saved me some money. Then had to wait a week before we could put the stripes on it.

New sinister hood, street scene ground effects. Also removed the RS badging on back and went with the chevy bow-tie (white with black center) Since it had no stripes we call her WHITEOUT

Stressed for more about a week on what design to do for the new stripes, used my friends from facebook and also Camaro5 fb page to give me some design ideas. I was stumped until my buddy Derrick Hawkins (he is in my camaro club and loves to play with photoshop showed me a moch up of what my car could look like with different stripes. So here is what we chose for her.

Bad Vibe Gets her Attitude back, matte black stripes return but with the new bumble bee stripe pattern to accentuate the hood.

Daily Driver
 
I drive this car everyday - 200 miles minimum and about 4 hours a day back and forth to work. Thats 1,000 miles a week (not to count what I do when I am not at work) and she is getting 29.4 miles to the gallon at 77mph on cruise control.

Links fixed.

thewrightcamaro 05-26-2011 06:31 PM

looks pretty damn sweet

Sterling 05-26-2011 06:33 PM

Wow... that's turned into one sweet ride!

Elykson 05-26-2011 06:34 PM

Nice job! Looks bad ass.

brandotron 05-26-2011 06:48 PM

That looks great man! Very well done!

green-go 05-26-2011 06:49 PM

Nice work scott! Now slow down and let some of us catch up.lol

DevilsReject97 05-26-2011 08:39 PM

You guys should really see it in person, it's a very well done ride. For what it's worth, it sounds better than a lot of the V6's I've seen (regardless of car/engine).

Nice to see the progression Scott, but the pics still don't do her justice! :D

MIT'13 05-26-2011 08:41 PM

Wow you've really created an awesome car here.
Glad to see people are doing really cool things with the V6!

PETRA 05-26-2011 08:47 PM

edgar3 05-26-2011 08:50 PM

BLcamaro10 05-26-2011 09:07 PM

SWEET....not so much on the wheels but once again SWEET love the hood and stripes....again SWEET!!!

cyberLS 05-27-2011 12:35 AM

Really nice. Never a fan of those stripes but it looks good.

bossbunny 05-27-2011 10:57 AM

Very nice.... that's a good looking hood (but then again im biased). :D

The Stig 05-27-2011 01:35 PM

Man do I love that sinister hood. Great looking camaro you've got there. Sorry to hear about your commute. I've got 45 minutes going to the office and an hour and a half coming home.......


......my office is 13.4 miles from my house. Damn you DC damn you

Sarah 05-27-2011 01:47 PM

I love the white camaros. So sick. Would have been my second choose if i could not have gotten the ABM. You have great taste & nice mods.

BlessedChef10 05-27-2011 02:11 PM

GORGEOUS!!

Infopro 05-27-2011 02:21 PM

BAD VIBE is BAD ASS.

hardestysa 05-27-2011 03:20 PM

thanks for comments guys... did some AAC lighting mods today, pics posted soon.

shevyman 05-27-2011 03:57 PM

i have to say that does look sick. at first when you showed it all white i was loving it. then you did the stripes and have to admit its different and sticks out. makes me wish that i would have never touched my car the way i did and would have just done something simple.

other then that i think your car is awesome. keep up the good work

n116ebo 05-27-2011 04:00 PM

Beautiful!! You have good taste.

LED Crazy 05-27-2011 05:47 PM

What a spectacular Camaro! It's remarkable how a new hood and GFX on the front can make such a difference to the V6 appearance. Well done my fellow Camaro friend.

AAC Lighting Install
 
So I wanted my DLR's to work with my night lights so I got with AAC. They sent me the kit which included wires and new LED DRL lights.

As you can see the difference in the bulbs.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-F...0/DSC_0510.JPG

This is what it looks like installed.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-z...0/DSC_0513.JPG

I didn't realize when I installed them that my Halo's would be on all the time also. Its a cool look and unexpected.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-z...0/DSC_0516.JPG

But then I also noticed my front side markers lights are on also... So I will be getting with AAC to see if I did something wrong, cause I dont think its suppose to be doing that.
