Wow! That is one fine looking car you got there. I really love how the razzi kit looks. Think it is one of the best out there. The pictures look great. Gives me motivation to mod my V6.

Thanks a lot for the compliments, man! Yeah there are so many different things you can do (in a big or small way) to make the car your own and like it that much more. Doesn't have to be something that major to feel like you've totally changed the look of the car. For example just customizing the bowties to your liking can give the car a different feel.

Thanks, I REALLY like your car because it is somewhat what my original vision of my car looked like. Two things kept that from happening
1. My cousin Chris (who works at Discount Tire and I always get my wheels and tires thru) couldn't get the Havoc wheels for me. The Giovanni's were my 2nd choice.
2. Chris (Tmac - this week's COTW) beat me to the Razzi kit and I didn't want to have the same thing.

So with that your car is one of my favorite's. I like what you have done.


Are those white caliper covers hard to keep clean?

First of all the white Camaro with the black accents looks awesome! Secondly, I'm officially issuing your man card back to you after dumping your Prius.

Heck yeah man, that's sweet!! Your car has turned out pretty awesome even though you've been getting your second options, haha!!

Actually the white covers stay surpisingly clean, and are easy to clean. My Havoc's appear dirtier more often than my covers....and you can't even tell the covers are dirty until you get up close to them.

Thanks for the compliment, man!

Yeah yeah, I got that sort of thing from everyone when I was driving that Prius. Actually just about everyone I knew, and especially my friends, asked me why I bought that car. I do myself for that one.

I did like it quite a bit though, LOL.....and as I told the guy changing my oil when he asked me if I "picked up a lot of chicks with this car" in a smart a** tone.....I'm not a shmuck and I don't need a car to pick up chicks.

Hate when I have to spend money on "not mods" LOL. Bought Dr Colorchip for a few minor things and I'm going to get to that soon. I'll post updates on how it goes.

Also....they were doing construction around here recently and I happened to drive through a boatload of fresh tar and it sprayed all up on my gfx as you can see in the pics. I was so mad because it wasn't coming off with soap, water and a mf towel and I thought it was scratching the heck out of my car...even if it's in the wheel wells. So I bought the bug and tar remover and I was so happy the stuff just started dissolving .

Got around to using the Dr Colorchip on a few of my paint chips this weekend.

It was super easy to do. It did fill in some of the chips better than others but as for right now I'm pretty satisfied with the overall product.

Up close the chips might look about 75% quality whereas a few feet away they look 100% because you can't notice them anymore from afar. Below is a before and after of the only major scrape I had. It's on the bottom nose of my front splitter. The rest are just single chips and I'm going to do them again with the Dr Colorchip and make them even better.

While bored I took a few pics and I'm posting some that I thought were kind of cool. I was just messing around. I keep saying that I need to get some "real" pictures taken.

Yo Ivan thanks for the compliments man!! But your car would be in line for COTW far before mine

Stinks that you gotta leave but it was awesome to get to meet you through ECC and hopefully you'll be able to get back to visit at some point.

And there's always Camaro5 for everyone to keep in touch

Yeah it is supposed to be for the SS but some places have been selling it to where you can fit it on the v6. Not sure what the difference is between the two, though.

LOL, maybe it was hungry...and wanted to get a buzz

Thanks a lot for the compliments, man ....much appreciated.

Yeah I was pretty mad when those things went down, but at least I was pretty lucky there was no lasting damage done from any of it.

Great job on the mods. IMO. I think the summit white is the best color for the body style. I wonder what a MRT. louver kit would look? I think it would set the rear end off to complet the look. Great job.
