no car cover for me.

Moelack 12-06-2011 09:01 PM

2SS/RS, minus the sunroof. Broke my phone, lost all of my pics :( IMO, best looking 5th gen model so far.

Edit: Almost forgot! Would love a car cover if done right.

Looking good! The 'verts look very cool! I've always been a hardtop kinda guy, but the day I saw my first camaro 'vert in person I was blown away! Chevy did a good job! It looks great with the top up and even better with the top down! And of course I gotta give ya more props for getting it in a 45th! :chevy:

Sunrooof wasn't something I specifically wanted. I wanted the hurst. There was another 2012 45th 2SS with the hurst at a different dealership and by the time my dealership factored in shipping in the other one and all, they just gave me a discount on the sunroof, lol. THe sunroof was like $300, although it's listed as a $1000 option. :yikes:

the dealer had a few sunroof ones, but i'm 6'6" and need the extra headroom :)

hightower 12-06-2011 09:47 PM

Lookin good there mistyblu! Not gonna lie though, when I noticed the person in the driver's seat in the last pic, it scared the crap out of me at first! :D

I know what you mean when you get that funny feeling. Every time I get out and walk away from it I glance back to check on it like 5 times!

The sunroof takes up room? I had no idea, haha, I'm 6'1" so I don't notice I guess.

it's in the middle, that stripe just makes it look offset.

What rims are those? They look like they're made by Rockstar. And did you black out the badges? How'd you go about doing that? Vinyl or paint?

doubletrouble 12-06-2011 10:34 PM

2 SS with sunroof, powder coated wheels with black lug nuts, Black billet bowties, tinted windows, tinted side markers and fog lights, pcv catch can, OEM strut tower brace, OEM sub box and amp, OEM ambient interior lighting.

Yes it is centered, also painted to match the Carbon Flash, ( another small but nice change on the 12's :thumbup:)

I'm one of the few who have gone psychotic with it and dove straight into the engine. No regrets at all =).

edit - here is a horrible video I took with my phone the other day after getting my car back from the shop. Just idling with the new setup below. Intentionally put my finger over the mic a few times to show volume differential.

I want to black mine out similarly to yours. However I don't think I can touch the rims as my father bought the road hazard protection plans so I'm pretty sure if I powdercoat them (like I planned to do) I'll void the warranty.

I commend you on doing it! I wish I could, a tune would be wonderful! How'd you like the feel over stock? I bet it's great! :D

Yes definately loose some headroom there with the sunroof, had an 11 RJT before the 45th, not an issue with me too much except at the track with helmet on, always bumping on the roof :(

It's easily one of the best things I've done. The change was so dramatic any time I get in the car I can't help but have the biggest permagrin. I know it's not true, but I feel like I have the fastest car on the planet and I couldn't be happier. When you get on it you kind of see time and space warp around you.
