Bajamoon's slow build

So got bored this weekend and said screw it I'll make a build thread. More of a place to :bs: than anything I guess. Bought the car in April of 2011 from Camino Real Chevy. Never even sat in a Camaro before I signed the papers. Fell in love with it the moment I saw it.

Here are a few pics and I'll take more later.

Some interior work. GM Inferno orange panels and had Camino Real paint my console top and spedo bezel to color match. Working on painting the main center console gloss black and taking the texture out. Pain in the ass but will be worth it.

Also installed the MGW shifter ball. It slips right over the stock shifter.

So I have done some small work in the engine bay. Dying for some Roto Fab engine covers and radiator covers but for now this works

RED DEMON SS 05-28-2012 10:46 PM

Looks sweet bro, i wonder which strut tower brace fits over my Supercharger? Also if a radiator shroud would come close to fitting with a CAI instead of Rotofab?

RED DEMON SS 05-28-2012 10:47 PM

Member car journal advice 101, make sure all your pictures are a max width of 800 px, that way all your photos look perfect inside your journal without having to scroll outside to the right, Lol...

The rad shroud works with them all from what I have found looking around here. And as far as I know the Hotchkis brace is the only one that fits over the supercharger.

Then just have it painted or paint it yourself. My dealer paints all my stuff pretty cheap

bajamoon 05-29-2012 04:12 PM
