Now that you've done the cup holder trim, you need to do this.

Terry....that is EXACTLY what I plan to do!!

I am not sure if I want them just to come on with the dome or if I want it to come on with my ambient lights or by a switch.

Which LEDs did you use for yours? When do yours come on?

I love those rims!
You make it so hard to wait, since most of the build threads I pay attention to arent RJT (or CRT), they arent a huge deal to look at.

But I am waiting to buy my CRT and looking at how badass your car is makes it tough!

Sorry, little bit of a 'necro thread' here, but I LOVE the look of this Camaro. Just recently purchased a Crystal Red Camaro SS/RS myself [edit: I think I actually have the Red Jewel Tintcoat.] (assuming that's the color of yours -- it looks the same!) and have been agonizing as to what kind of wheels I could get for it. I knew that I wanted darker wheels, not polished or chrome. Came across pictures of your car, and I'm pretty damn impressed with how nice the Black Chrome Havocs look! I might be sold.

Where did you get your rims from, and how much? I'm looking online, and it looks like there's a few outlets around $1000, which isn't too bad.

[edit] What do RJT/CRT stand for? Red Jewel something/Crystal Red something? Just put the first two together, but not positive.

[edit2] Showing my ignorance here. I don't even know which color I actually have. I thought it was Crystal Red -- I thought I saw another thread on this forum listing all of the colors (along with pictures). I'm so terribly lost. I think I have RJT? I'm really close to deleting these comments, because I obviously have no idea what I'm talking about.

[edit3] Success! For anyone who is wondering (like my newbie self), I believe RJT stands for Red Jewel Tintcoat, and CRT stands for Crystal Red Tintcoat. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hey Moonchopper---yea, I haven't done much with Ms Scarlett recently so this thread has been stagnant. Getting ready to put a ported throttle body and catch can on soon though and will update when I get those on.

Ok, to answer your questions..

RJT = Red Jewel Tintcoat
CRT = Crystal Red Tintcoat

Basically, the CRT took the place of RJT when they discontinued the RJT for the 2012 models. So, if your car is a 2012, it is CRT not RJT.
They are both extremely similar in color. They did this so GM only has so many colors across the spectrum to use through their line of cars...the CRT is used on Corvettes and Cadillacs (I believe, but could be wrong on the Caddy). Check out this article http://www.camaro5.com/red-jewel-tintcoat-vs-candy-red-tintcoat-comparison-photos

Black wheels look KILLER (no bias here ) on the RJT and CRT alike! I got my Havocs from Xplosive Performance. They were very reasonably priced and they fit the stock tires -- so very easy on the pocket book to convert to these rims!! http://www.xplosiveperformance.com/


Congrats on your new ride and happy cruising!! Don't hesitate to holler if you have any other questions!!

So, my kid was home sick from school today so I took advantage of that and installed my catch can and ported throttle body!!

The catch can was pretty easy to install once I figured out which hoses were which. This site's instructions were the most clear: Teamspeed's Ref Docs

BEFORE -- a lonely mounting bolt where the old air filter housing used to be:


Catch can installed -- no more lonely mounting bolt where the old air filter housing used to be


Next...time to tackle the throttle body...here is what it looked like before:



Removed the cold air intake tubing, four bolts, and one plug...so simple!!!


Mounted new throttle body:



Hooked up the CAI tube, put the cover back on and walla!
