I think the stripes will look FABULOUS! What's the worst that can happen - if down the road you really decide - ya know I want NO stripes - you just peel those buggers off

Too bad I already have stripes or I would of took those off your hands! You really should reconsider, they are awesome looking. The flecks look orange against your car.

Put on my badges today

The rear one wasnt as bad as i thought to come off, but was a pain to align the new one but came out good!


The Side emblems were the worst

The Chrome emblem did not come with the 3M tape attached. The 3m tape was in the exact shape as the emblem and i had to peel off the sticky tape and place it on the car first. it was sooo flimsy without the backing on it took me 15mins each emblem just to get it centered. But again they came out good

I installed my Stainless Works 3" Retro Chambered Catback with Solo Performance High Flow Cats on my 2011 Camaro SS LS3

Let me start off by saying.......IT IS LOUD.

The videos dont show really loud they are but HOLY DAMN

This video was the first startup Video.


This video is a Full Revving Video


Idle Only Video


This video is my Take off Full Throttle Video...this video really shows how loud the system is when the car is at the end of the road and it sounds like its still in front of you


Here is a fly by video....2nd through 3rd Gear
