Soooo busy lately...I had to find some time for my car. Heres something new I finally finished up. Morimoto projectors & halos! Very impressed. I picked up a kit a while back from TRS and retrofitted them into some spares I had. Took some vids and pics I will put up later of the install in the how to for anyone that cares. Im one of the guys that didnt want to go the RS route when I bought the car because I couldnt justify the cost for small upgrades. Extremely sharp cutoff line, for Morimoto & TRS. Heres a couple of pics I snapped with the halos/fogs on.

NICE!

You need to post up some pics in the cosmetic section for others to see.

Congrats on COTW. I was wondering when you would get it.

*side note: I decided this a long time ago (pretty much first time I saw your thread) that whenever I get around to doing the GFX I would follow suit with the mesh instead of exhaust tips. I figure its about time I come clean and let you know my intentions*

COTW! Everything was very nicely done. The wheels everything blacked out is awesome. Im trying to decide on what rotors to get for my car. I put new pads on and i still have some annoying noise and saw that the breaks messed up my rotors a bit. How do you like your new brake set up? What type of Nitto's did you order? I have Nitto Nto5r's and they are incredible. I take my traction cntrl off and mash it and I have no wheel spin. Highly recommend them. Love the black mesh grill on the gfx too.

Where did you get the wire mesh thing for your gfx. I want to do that for these Xenon side vents I just bought for my car. They would be perfect if they came with something like that. Thank You

Thanks everyone for the comments!

edz10ss , I have the nt05r's waiting to be mounted on some 18inch forgestars for the track. Looking forward to trying them out. As for the my brakes, Ive been happy with my current setup, no complaints from me. Also for the wire mesh on my exhaust, I found a sheet of the mesh at ace hardware. It was kinda pricey if I remember correctly. Like 30-40 dollars a sheet, but its a heavy duty mesh that can take a weld. I had the meshes welded in then the whole bezel/mesh powdercoated black.

Cheers

The rotors from r1 cocepts are curently not available on their website as an option. Wondering if they are from another model that fits the camaro 5th gen. Also looked at other rotors from them just to get an idea of the price, and it turns out in other models they only offer front rotors and no rear ones. Does your car have r1 rotors in the back as well can't tell in the pictures. Planning on purchasing some and wanted some info on them, also wondering if it isna custom order you did?

I contacted them through the forum. I would try that. Also might want to check out this thread showing the parts and some info http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=85432

Thanks guys, you all have some amazing rides, so I appreciate the kind words.
Also if anyone is ever looking to do a photoshoot of their ride around the bay area here, i'm always looking to practice my photography. Ive shot my car a ton of times, so its always nice to shoot others and different colors.
