Started playing with window tinting to change the look initially

50% tint on side windows, 20% on the rear window.

Bought 20% tint from headlight armors for all the lights around. And carbon fiber vinyl for Bowties

Few photos after adding the tint :biggrin:

I've seen people painting rear bezels flat black but never thought of plasti dipping :doh: and so i painted them with flat black. They turned out to be perfect to me :biggrin:

And i bought a black out vinyl from ebay for trunk lid.
Few photos after the changes

Performance time
 
Bought Elite Catch Can, MRT v2.0, CAI's cold air intake from Apex Chase :happyanim:

And VMAX ported throttle body from Ivan@southwest speed:)

Installed MRT V2.0 myself but later decided to get it welded by a professional.

Painted CAI's intake to match the car
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/pictur...ctureid=103835


Bought a Ported throttle body from Ivan@southwest. I thought, there is no point in painting it will be covered by engine cover, so left it unpainted.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/pictur...ctureid=103836


So installed all the parts, and now its time to paint the engine cover. Started a thread asking people to post their engine covers and created mine. Kind of inspired by you all :respekt::headbang:

Plasti Dip project time
 
So on a weekend i decided to try plasti-dipping something on my car. Went to home depot and bought like 4-5 cans of black.

Started with plasti dipping the alloys. Came out great so went ahead and started plasti dipping hash marks. And finally dipped my front fascia and lower bumper.

So to finish up this project. I painted break calipers red with dupli color and painted CAMARO fender emblems with satin flat back and installed them back on car.

Here are few photos of final result
