Transformer-ization of my Rally Yellow 2LT / RS
 
Got a Rally Yellow 2LT / RS, no stripes or TF Package. But, big TF fan, and really got this car because of the connection to TF. So I am going to build it out to have a TF theme over time, using some of the Chevy TF elements, and some of my own. Will try to update first post in thread with all the pics as I move forward. So here we go!

First Day! Stock!

First Mod! - Quick and cheap. ReflectiveConcepts.com

Second Mod! - Thanks EmblemPros.com

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/camaro...0391_small.jpg

Third Mod! - Stripes. Uh Oh...

Got the extended Bumblebee rally stripes from Vinylgraphics.net, gloss black. Didn't like how the factory ones stop pre-fascia. However, there was a mishap somewhere, and the extensions aren't applied/cut right. So, vinylgraphics is re-cutting those pieces, and will have them re-installed soon. Trunk and spoiler came out great tho IMO tho.

Defenderworx Billet Gill Inserts. - Applied the vinyl versions twice, once by the professional shop that did my stripes, and once by myself. Both wound up frakked up. So I caved and got the metal versions show below. They really look sharp, much better than the vinyl/sticker versions. Hard to tell in pics, I know.

Blackouts - Added Camarodecalstore.com static cling blackouts to the sidemarkers and turn signals. I dig these from a distance, and like the fact you can remove and re-apply them at will. Good in case you get pulled over or for inspection times.

Very NICE...........

If your really into the TF , as you appear to be, the KIDS love the LAMBO doors, and it would ad to the TF theme your going for .

I got mine wholesale from Gary Customs for under $900

alexw 04-24-2010 06:21 PM

Hehe, I dunno if I can do that. I'm trying for a subtle but still custom look. Lambo is like the anti-that. :)

You got pics of yours, didn't see in your garage.

I'm still wondering/debating about the fender badges though.

If the airbag goes off, those letters on there will do some serious damage to someones face.. Just FYI

alexw 05-03-2010 03:04 PM

I'm passin on the console lid. Didn't dig it. Might get something custom there later on. Match it up with some headrest stuff.

Re airbags. Thought that came from above where the logo is. Might have to take em off. Don't want to impale my girl with the transformers logo during a fender bender.

guiLT 05-03-2010 03:09 PM

This is cool! :D

HOZAY 05-03-2010 03:15 PM

Haha! I see I'm not the only one with a Transformer nickname for their car.

But mine is a Decepticon - named Crankshaft.

I'm going to do a little more interior customization - on the exterior, change the halos to red instead of blue...

Looking at this photo, it doesn't appear to be the case. I never found an airbag there.

That's where I thought it came out too. That ride looks pretty farked up, and the passenger dash is generally in one piece, so I think they should be ok.

Updated with a small one, GM Autobot Wheel Covers.
