March 2010- I went to the Corvetter/Chevy Expo in Houston and this is where I found the H-Town Camaro club and talked to them about joining which I did that same month. I'm so glad I found them they are like a second family and it's always fun going out to street meets, car shows and even drag racing events with everyone and if you are in the Houston area and thinking of joining..do it

April 2010- I attended the 1st Annual Kemah Car Show with the club and I had a blast even though it was super hot!! here are a couple pics from that day

Early September 2010- I ordered some bumblebee style bowties and black tail light bezels both in gloss, from Gary's Customz
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66848
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61044

they turned out great and the install was very easy..the front bowtie gave me a little trouble those tabs were hard to push on reaching through the top of the fascia. I think the car looks a lot better with black tail light bezels

October 30th, 2010- I attended the 2nd Annual Camaro Nationals with HTCC and it was my very first time at the track so I was very nervous. I remember lining up for the first time my palms got sweaty and my leg was kinda shaking controlling the clutch. After going down the track for the first time all my nervousness went away and got hooked to racing. Had a blast that night even though I got knocked out in the second round of bracket racing.

My 60 ft. times sucked that day and I am in need of some trailing arms for sure. But here is my best time slip

January 2011- Didn't do much to the car till this month. I started working at a detail shop in Pearland and was making decent money but was working lots of hours. It was all going towards my car so it was worth it.

I ordered the Cold Air Inductions CAI/ Stainless Works 3" Retro Chambered Exhaust package from Chase at Apex Motorsports. Here is the link where I found the package: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164916

here is the CAI

August 2011- I bought a set of AAC concept sidemarkers from Ofer (2SSRS) and got a really good deal with them. They were black with tint but I wanted to go ahead and sand them down a bit so that I could tint and clear them myself and not have any flaws. Took about 2 days with 2 coats of tint and 4 coats of clear

here are pics of the process and what it looks like now
