One bad Camaro

After much lurking on these forums, I've decided to give back by explaining the styling mods my LS has undergone. I will post pics of the stages my Camaro has been through and describe the processes that brought it to where it is today. Enjoy!

I know! It's a love-hate relationship.. I love more mods, but my wallet hates it. I love that hood and those stripes are pretty cool too!

6/6/11-Matte black rally stripes with red outline i did myself today!
I feel !!! When I originally got the stripes painted, I was happy for awhile but then I grew away from the color. And when everybody would come up to me and say hey I just saw another black Camaro with red stripes!! I knew it was actually inferno orange but I always bit my tongue and said, "oh, cool." So it was time for a change and hopefully this is something nobody else has!! But now that I posted it on here I'm sure someone else will have it soon enough
Will link to DIY soon...& post pics of stripes after wash.
