My 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS
 
I've been lurking around here for a year and a half, made some small upgrades and researched information. Well, I'm about to take my first major upgrade/modification step on my car since I've acquired it.

Let's start with the small stuff first. I wanted a blue Camaro SS with the RS package, automatic, leather interior and white stripes. Luckily for me, I found this little beauty at a dealer just 10 minutes from my sister's house.

Purchased 7/28/11:

Already installed was a K&N CAI:

My first small modification was the change the license plate lights to LED:

Then came the new stereo system:

Then I had some custom LED sequential turn signal tail lights:

Next step was the custom license plate:

So now for the big project that's been awaiting the green light!!!

im still waiting on some tax forms. Once my taxes are done, then I'm going to start on the project.

It's not that I can't start now, but it's just finance management that's the hold up.
