AREA 51 Build Journal
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hey everybody. Let me introduce you to my new love. Her name is A51. (I was always curious about secret us military base - area 51. Not that long ago I read Annie Jacobsen's book - Area 51, which was the best book I've ever read. So that's how my Camaro got her name.) She was born in May 2011 in Oshawa, Canada. I met her on 11/23/12 in Janesville, Wisconsin. It was love from the first sight. From the first time I saw her she charmed my heart. How can you not fall in love with such beauty! I took her home on 11/28/12. From that moment her steel heart and my human heart beat as one...

Update 7/27/2013
When I bought my camaro I knew that I can find its build date on the edge of the drivers door. When you open the door there is a sticker with build month and year. And just recently I find out that there is another sticker under the hood on the left/passengers side in front of the engine on the frame, which has not only month and year, but also the day camaro was build. So my A51 has officially her birthday on 5/18/2013

sweet car, i wish i wouldve gotten a IOM also, or the RJT. I was stupid for going with white. I gotta say though, I'm not the biggest fan of the painted rims, I got the bare aluminum version of the same wheels. sure the brush strokes arent uniform at all, but im a bare metal kinda guy.

too bad ou dont have the RS package either, thats another thing i wish i had. just more room for improvement huh?

thanks man,
talking about white camaro, take a look at this thread : http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175553
in my opinion this guy -ZoMBiE_KMF - has the best looking white v6 in this forum. it doesn't matter what color is your car, you can make it look bad ass.
i didn't buy RS package on purpose. i knew that i'm gonna get different spoiler and different rims, so i chose non-RS model. as you say - more room for improvement.
talking about wheels, i have stock 19' wheels. they are not painted. maybe it looks different in the photos

P.S. english is my second language. i'm originally from europe, so apologies if i make some mistakes

P.P.S. upgrades coming soon ;)

btw, Meguiar's liquid wax to the front bumper and hood, works quickly and fast. its good affordable maintenance protection against the elements. it comes with an applicator pad, and you just need to pick up 2 plush microfiber wipes.

Welcome, loving the IOM, great color choice!

ZoMBiE_KMF 05-21-2013 07:37 AM

Awesome, thanks for the great compliment! :D

:popcorn: I'll be watching to see how this build goes.

no, i didn't black out bowties :) but i was thinking about that. my first upgrade to the car was cargo net for the trunk. seriously :)
but we are here not to talk about cargo nets, right? :)

so here are some photos of my real first upgrade:
