Lookin good man. I was wondering if you had made any progress on this, as we talked at the Horses and Horsepower show. This is going to be one bad ass Camaro once it's all done. I'd definitely do the blue halos as well (check out JDP that's what I have... wasn't terribly hard to put in and they can be any color pretty much).

I wish Kentucky allowed 7 characters for a license plate I would have stolen shknbke. Haha. Maybe I can figure something out for it. Hope to see you around man, keep it up!

I thought about that at first, but I decided on the engine cover so it would look like the arc reactor was actually powering the car.

Good idea but the v8 engine cover doesn't seem to fit it anywhere

Agreed, but I'm having an engine cover custom made around the arc reactor.

Just ordered a Firebreather spoiler. It was an impulse buy (read: my wife is going to murder me) after reading Stieger's build thread. I'll have it painted when it arrives, then I'll need to do a trunk swap with someone so that I won't have to fill in the holes.

http://shop.classicdesignconcepts.co...-rear-spoiler/

If you guys decide to get this spoiler, make sure you put in "camaro5" in the coupon code section. It will save you $55.

Here's a photo of my Camaro the day I brought her home. I was going to wait for a ZL1, but when I found this deal I couldn't pass it up. And I realized I would never actually use the ZL1 for its intended purpose.



First mod was an aftermarket sub, and it's still a work in progress. I'm planning on adding an additional 10" sub on the driver's side and building a custom cover for the amp and wires.

I ordered a Revolution Styling cowl hood with the reverse kit. Had a lot of issues with the company that painted it, but the actual ordering process was great (despite all the negative comments on this forum about Revolution).





Now on to the project I'm tackling for my car...
How did I not see this before?! Fantastic! We should add an article about this to Advanced Iron!

Subscribed! This is gonna be one awesome looking camaro and def one of a kind. Good luck! Looking good so far. I know you already bought a new hood but it would look really cool once you get that arc reactor in if you had the hood that has the window in it that way you can see it but that is just a thought. Def looking good.

Damn, you beat me to it CamaroKid, lol. Package should be here Friday hopefully. I leave for Ecuador on Saturday until the 15th, so I won't have any updates until then.

If it gets here Friday, I can drop it off at the shop that's doing the engine cover and hopefully have it finished before I get back.

you should have a window installed on the hood to show off the arc reactor, like all the ironman suits. I've already seen a couple camaros out here with the window on the hood that shows off their engine covers, no negatives just positives from it. good luck

Yeah, if I had thought of this theme before I ordered my Revolution hood I would have gone with a hood with a clear insert.

It's just vinyl, so I may remove it after I get the stripes put on.

I leave for Ecuador tomorrow morning, so I won't have any updates until next weekend. I did drop something off at the shop fabricating my engine cover though. Here's a video of it in pulse mode:

Yeah, I'm with you man. After spending an hour at the shop planning out the engine cover, I really don't want to go on my trip. The guy fabricating it said he wouldn't even send me pictures...just teasers, lol.

Well Iron man is in this thread. Im 100% sure there is a synergy green hulk themed camaro, I know there are a bunch of "America" themed cars that could easily be captain america.

Im sure there is a black camaro out there that has black widow-esque decals or scheme.

Hawkeye probably isnt around
