VERY sweet ride and an excellent job on the mods.

Nothing personal but I think I hate you now. You've got me thinking of modding a car that I originally intended to keep original.
I spent a week thinking I wouldn't mod anything. I quickly changed my mind and decided I would make mods, but only make reversible mods, haha.

The magic of internet
When this car is fairly common for american people, here we feel like members of a small world of Camaro's addicts.
So we regroup on the internet. In this case : www.forumcamaro.com

That's the problem with the special series.

I'm with the "want to modify and personalize" group! That is also why I am the last 9/5'er waiting. I should get her before Christmas!!! The wife wants her to get here so I can put the additional mods that are stacking up at the house on her! And YES...I would love a matching car cover!!! I have been told that it is getting harder just to walk through the house. LOL Here are a few of the pics I got sent to keep me occupied...

Earthshaker, glad to see another highly modded 'vert!!! Very cool indeed, I bet you can't wait to get her in time for christmas!

I can't even begin to imagine what she'll drive like with those mods!

What about adding gfx and a different spoiler - does THAT mean you no longer have a 45th?

What a moron.

Exflirt's 45th is her version of what the 45th should have looked like as well as a tribute to her 35th she had.
Her car was the only 45th at SEMA this year and all the Chevy brass came over to see it. All of them loved it, and a few mentioned they liked her version of the reversed colors better than the stock version, it made the car stand out more. When you have all the Chevrolet brass admiring the car and saying that, how can you argue with them.
Exflirts 45th is much closer to what the 45th should have been from Chevy.
Not knocking the stock 45th, but its very conservative. It should have been bolder, it should have more pop to it, it should have had a more look at me look to it, Exflirt succeeded with her version.
It is still a 45th, a unique and extremely good looking version, one that commands the attention a 45th should.
you have a bunch of stickers on it, you removed and replaced the 45th rims, and you have inverted the color of the stock stripes and added a bit more to them. do you think it looks like a 45th anymore? i really don't see how you can say it does. if i saw it on the road i would not know it was a 45th, and that was my point. there is no reason to be so defensive. i never said anything derogatory about your car.

1st mod will be the skip shift eliminator. That 1st to 4th shift has got to go.

P.S. - Skip shift eliminator = done. Not a moment too soon ...

Hey there dan! Good lookin 45th there! Same options as mine with the sunroof and hurst STS. I've considered the skip shift eliminator but the 1st to 4th hardly ever comes up for me so I might not bother.
