Moai's Twins - Blacked Out SS Camaros + Photoshoots
 
This is the story about how a kid like me ended up getting my dream car after having it as my computer wallpaper for a few years. I had this image: http://i.imgur.com/PYJYwXL.jpg. I was never into muscle cars specifically until I saw the concept in person. I am a designer and photographer at heart so I quickly fell in love. This is also the story about how I convinced my friend to buy a Camaro SS instead of a Challenger, I helped him with some mods but his car is arguably better than mine in total, and since we modified our cars together, he has no C5 account and we've become close friends I decided to write a journal for both.

Awesome jobs on both cars!

On "his" car, are the seats OEMs with a custom center done by a upholstery shop? Or did he buy thos somewhere? They look awesome! :thumb:

He purchased the car with 3k miles and those seats were done like that. I called up a lot of companies to see if they'd do the same "cross stitching" pattern but I didn't find anyone that would do it quite as nice (at least not for a reasonable price).

I just took more photos, these will be the last ones before I paint it satin maroon/black 2 tone:
