After having the car for several months now it is time to start my build thread.

My Camaro is a 2011 2LT/RS RJT. I named her Jewel and that is where I got my Camaro5 user name from. I have been obessed with the 5th Gen Camaro since the Summer of 2008. I finally had my dream come true back in April when I drove her off the lot. Here is a picture of her in my driveway back in WV.
Here is another picture of her with my Cavalier (my DD)

The first thing I added was this RJT engine cover to Jewel. I purchased the cover from 15thCamaro over the 4th of the July weekend. He sold his V6 and got a V8. He wanted someone to have the cover that loved Camaros so he sold it to me. :thumbup:
I then painted my bezels with plastidip.
Then added a magnetic blackout, which I hope to do vinyl or paint in the spring. I am not sure if I want to keep the bowtie. Suggestions are welcome.
My car was vandalized over the summer and when they repainted the car I had them remove the Camaro lettering. I really would like to replace them with black lettering someday.
Keep the bowtie. A local guy took the bowtie off and did the black strip and it looks weird. Leave the bowtie but an RJT one.
Engine cover looks good. RJT looks very nice with white rally's!
Thanks for the advice. I was thinking of removing the front bowtie and keeping the back on and painting it RJT. I think the front looks so clean without the bowtie. This is something to think about over the winter and look at more photos on C5.
My rallys are actually silver. It is a mistake a lot of people make and the pictures are not all that great.
Thanks for checking out my thread.
Oh, cool... I bet silver looks great... prob better than white actually.
Here is some cool photos of Jewel:
:chevy:get one of the lighted rear bowties. it can stay on all the time and then act like a brake light if you what it to. i have one. looks cool. there are some pics on here some where of it. any help with pics from you other guys?
Lookin good so far! I'd go no front bowtie and RJT rear bowtie
Awesome job so far on Jewel, Nicole. :thumbsup:
Jewel, I would keep the bowtie, and color match the chrome part with RJT and paint or plastidip the inside black to match the rear strip and underneath diffuser. It would pull together the RJT and black and still look suttle. OOORRRRRRRR RJT the chrome part and silver out the Bowtie to match your rallys, it would be a bit brighter but still stay within the color theme of your car. Just my .02
Awesome build! :clap:
Black it out :)
Beautiful car, fantastic color, great ideas. I'd like to see what a RJT bowtie would look like.
Thanks everyone for checking out my thread and for the excellent ideas. After reading what everyone has to say, I still don't know what I am going to do.:iono:
Well I have a few months to decide before she comes out of storage.
Nice Pictures of the car Nicole ,won't be long before you will be enjoying her again.
