I don't know if anyone told you, but it looks like your SS emblem on the trunk is upside down

Thank you and YES!!! Still not sure if I will have Ms Scarlett with me or not , but I will definitely be down. Do you know how hard it would be to get a pic of her with the Alamo in the background? That might convince me to drive her!

Where did you get the lighted SS on the rear and do you have any pics of it lit up? I like the painted engine cover too. Care to share you paint technique?

Wishing I had started this thread when I first got Scarlett but since I didn’t, you will get the cliff notes version of her transformation from July 2010 through April 2011

I picked her up in Dallas in July 2010 and drove her back to Shreveport, Louisiana where I live. The drive home was a blast! I had a permagrin the whole 3 hour drive! This is what she looked like when I first brought her home:







Now that I had her home, it was time to let the mods begin!



First and foremost, I had the VentureShield clear bra installed to prevent the horror stories of paint chips that I had read throughout the forum. For pics go to: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/album.php?albumid=5279


Second, I added Roto-Fab CAI and had her dyno tuned. These two mods took Scarlett from fun to exhilarating!! I also added a few black chrome and RJT accents under the hood to dress her up some more:








Next came some footwell lighting…installation required some flexibility




But the results were worth it:





Also, tinted the exterior lights and added some nice Carbon Fiber accents to the interior:






















Next came full badge and front license plate delete and addition of heritage grille, street scene lower grille, black chrome tail light bezels and custom illuminated SS rear badge:
BEFORE:




AFTER:







Of course, now I have big holes where the license plate used to be But I figure I will change out the whole bumper when I get my ground effects this fall.



My thirst for more power and better sound led to installation of Kook’s 1 7/8” headers and Borla S Catback:



















I would be remiss if I failed to mention I entered her in two car shows during this time period and came home with 1st prize in the 2000 and newer category for both shows…she was well deserving!











IVS Havoc rims were next! I honestly went back and forth on whether or not to get these or forged wheels. I decided for my budget and how I drive the car that these would work (for now). I have lots of mods on my list that I want to do before I shell out too much on wheels.









Then I added some black chrome bling to the trunk:






After 9 months of being deployed and away from my baby, I got right to work on mods as soon as I returned!!

Swapped out the chrome CAMARO script with Black Chrome script!



Installed ACS T3 front fascia!!! Painted by Gary's Customz...perfect paint match!!!

After installing the fascia, we went to work on My B A S S!!!
Bad A$$ Sound System!!!

It still needs a few finishing cosmetic touches, but here is sneak preview of the install:

Installing dynamat:

Of course, cannot forget to dynamat the doors and install high pass filters in the speakers...thanks to my "sub contractors" -- my hubby Brian and his best friend Bryan! AKA "B Squared" LoL
