Spades V6

Hi guys,

I've thought of posting my modding process in the Members Journal's section for the longest time. But seeing all of the MUCH crazier modders, I held back and started a blog instead.

But, it's been a year now, and I would like to share my process from now on =D

So uh, recently I've done some fender vinyl stripes, tuned my car, and installed Hurst's Paddle Shifters.

http://adf.ly/1L2Ps - striping

http://adf.ly/1L2RH - hurst paddle shifters

http://adf.ly/1L2Sg - Trifecta tune

I am also a heavy DIY kinda guy, so I have a DIY section for you guys if you guys need them at all =)

Otherwise, I'll be posting and updating here when I get new stuff in =D
I have a rotor and brakepad upgrade, caliper painting, and window tints this summer.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the vote of confidence you guys =D I love doing things DIY style, and I love the car, and I love writing and I love film making LOL...

Just held back cause some of you guys has some REALLY sticky worthy transformations. I'm just small fry for now. I wanted to share when I got lots of things done. Then I realized, what's the point of a journal if you just show the completed product.

Bro, I gotta say, your avatar pic is on some plane in my mind slightly disturbing... I have no idea why... it just is...

Other than the Mod Milk, yours is to me the most memorable...

This is a members journal section, not a SS members journal section, or a look at me I spent more than you area.. It's for all of us.. Post away... be proud, and theres nothing little about your Camaro...it's yours...

lol, really? Thanks a lot lol.

Right now, Im budgeting for new wheels and tires. If there is some awesome deal, I'd get them this summer. Otherwise, they were my plans for 2012 lol. I spent over $10,000 just modding last year alone... and that was scaring me a bit. So I'm pacing myself out lol.

Preferably, I have 3 big mod sections I want to accomplish by the next 3 years. Next year, wheels and tires, the year after that, Full suspension, and the year after that, possibly twin turbo, or other forced induction options.

Eitherway, nothing is set in stone, but for sure big things will happen >=D

lol, it's funny that you ask that. I am planning on taking it racing this spring/summer. I am waiting for a package in the mail. It will give me the go-ahead in racing lol. You will see

Anyway, what's funny is that I just shot a 0-60 run for my car lol. Not quite the quarter mile, but hopefully this is entertaining lol.
