I don't care if it's anal....but this makes me really nervous. I always try to find a spot away from others as much as I can...but Memorial day weekend is a hard time to do that.

Finished the complete blackout (as much as I want to blackout anyway) of the rear of my car. I installed the reverse marker tint and it's not as dark as I would like...but it is still darker than before and it looks good. Fixed the blackout of the trunk lid between the tail lights. Also finished the blackout of the gaps in my rear diffuser. All BLACK AND WHITE!! Haha...except for the exhaust tips...which I like the way they are now.

I also started to tint my DRL's but ended up not doing it because the tint I got was more of a yellow/amber color instead of a black color...it was the same as my reverse marker tint but it's not quite as noticeable on the reverse markers as the DRL's. Maybe I'll try to get darker tint elsewhere.

Thanks for the love! You can't go wrong with Summit White. Oh....and borrow all you want . That was one of the cool things I thought about doing a build thread....it might give someone else some cool mod ideas they might not have otherwise thought about. So....borrow on!

Thanks for the mad PROPS Ivan!! Always love it when you give me props. You've been cool to me since we met at the ECC meet and greet. Always supporting what I was doing with my car. Thanks for the love Ivan!!

Your car is definitely in a league of it's own compared to mine.

Well now that I've had a little time for it to sink in....I'm still in shock!! Haha

Appreciate the love from Camaro5 and everyone.

There is a ton of "competition" (I use quotes because we're not really competing for COTW because in all honesty we all have bada$$ 5th gens and all like each other's cars) for COTW and I wouldn't expect to get it over a lot of the other killer cars.

That being said I've really tried to work with a theme on my car and stick with it. Everything I've done to it I wouldn't have it any other way. I know it's nothing new and groundbreaking but I really like how everything flows together on my car. I haven't seen one exactly like it...yet. I think it's a bada$$ car in it's own right.

Right now I'm planning on either short tubes or long tubes (haven't decided yet)....and most likely the resonated x-pipe if I need to calm down the noise a bit. I would like to have lowering springs...again (I bought the Eibach kit but sold it after I about ripped my front splitter off a few times and I knew it wouldn't last after getting lowered). But I probably won't go that route.

Well....thanks everyone for looking!!

Thanks a ton, man! Your vert has always been one of my favs and I've been keeping up with your thread. I actually nominated you in the "best looking Camaro on C5" thread we had a while back. I wanted to buy those SLP wheels when I saw them on your vert but ended up going a different route.
