I have a 2012 1LT Camaro and she is beautiful. She is all black and will soon have dark blue vinyl decals. (most likely hood spears hockey stripes and gills.) I chose to name her nocturne because she is all black and will soon have dark blue detailing just like the night. Colors = black and blue!

For upcoming mods I have already purchased the eagle eyes halo headlights and CAI cold air intake. In the future I plan to install new catch cans eventually, as well as the Borla attack catback and blue ambient interior lighting! I have dreamed of having this car since transformers came out and I can't wait to have fun modding it and driving it around. I will continue to post more pictures as I modify the car.

Here are the second set of stripes I was able to put on. I was slowed down because of the 71% humidity which is very bad conditions to apply vinyl in. However, today was beautiful so I took a little free time after work to put the door panel stripes on.

Also here is a look at the front. Notice I have also applied carbon fiber bow ties to the car because gold just didn't make sense. Also the lights are stock and that leads to my next mod the eagle eyes, which are sitting in my living room waiting to be put on!
