Nice job! Excellent. Have 1 question... since you travel so much.. bug stains on the front. They stain after while.. how do you prevent that? bug blood etc etc And, is your fix reliable?

Sorry for the slow response... the stripes we custom made and cost me $600. I went to a company that does vinyl graphics for vehicles and it took them all day to get these right (it was the rear spoiler that was killing them) but it was worth every penny to me.

I got the side marker covers from reflective concepts I believe. I spent a whole 15-20 bucks on it. They have them in every style car and tons of colors so I bet they have yours also.

Its a Sinister hood... I think I got it from PFCY.com and the stripes were custom done by a graphics shop. Since this stripe design is now popular I am sure there are some "kits" out there.

Okay...your probably not gonna like this answer but I ran this car thru car wash about 3 times a week...(yes the one with the brushes).. and then I would just wipe off the wheels on the inside (so easy..about 5 extra minutes).. so yeah, I treated Bad Vibe just like all my other cars..find a good car wash and go with it. The great part about her being white is you never see the "swirls" you get in the clear coat as you do in other colors... so thats right folks. Ran her thru a normal car wash (at least 80 times over the past year I had her).

Bad Vibe Sold

As most of you know I was wanting to sell Bad Vibe. Well I did. I put her on Ebay and she sold in 10 hours. I delivered the car to an owner in Missouri and he is a car fanatic like I am...so she is in good hands. Now I just have the Plump Crazy Purple SRT8 Challenger to take my modding bug out on. Of course this time when I mod this one it won't cost me anything..its my BFF's who is in Afghanistan for the next year or more and wants me to mod his car out for him. So yeah, not only do I still get to drive a cool car...but I get to mod it out without money out of pocket... I am blessed.

So don't be sad for me... the new owner will take amazing care of her (he had to pull out his Lamborghini to get my car in the garage) and he will finish the mods I still wanted to do to her. All is well in my world. He is even keeping the name "Bad Vibe" going.

Work done

First off, that's a real sweet ride that I see already incorporates many of the ideas I have for my own 2011 V6 Camaro named "Red Heat". (pics will be coming soon) I'd like to ask you who installed your ground effects kit? Was it work that you farmed out or was it a DIY project? Where did you purchase the killer trunk spoiler? Sorry to come off as nosey but I guess that's how trends start. You see something you like and next thing youj know, more people do it! lol

Mods include:
1. BBK CAI
2. Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs
3. Flowmaster Cat Back Exhaust (40 series)
4. Caliper Covers
5. Street Scene Ground Effects
6. Sinister Hood
7. MDP1 Rear Spoiler
8. Heritage Grill
9. Powder Coated Wheels
10. Blackout tail Lights
11. Custom Matte Black Stripes
12. Painted Rear Exhaust Diffuser (or whatever its called)
14. Side marker whiteout kit
15. Tinted Windows
16. Blue interior/trunk lights
17. AAC Wire kit with new LED DRL Bulds so they work with halo's at night
18. Pioneer Double Din Navigation/DVD Unit AVIC-Z120BT
19. Garmin Navigation 1300 GPS (so I can watch movies/music videos and get navigation while driving)
20. Belkin Radar Detector
21. Vodoo guy hanging from mirror that represents "Change" lol... this car has been thru many of them.


Future mods:
1. Underhood engine detail (white accents)
2. white inserts for seats and headrest
3. white door panel trim inserts
4. Eibach phase 3 suspension

This is what she looked like when I first bought her in Oct. The first thing we did was tint the windows.


Second.. Powder coat the wheels to match


Then added the GPS.. I love the location as it is not visible thru the windshield.


Painted the rear defuser and had the stripes taken over the spoiler, blacked out the rear tailights and put Retro RS Badging on it. New Flowmaster 40 series were also installed and the BBK CAI


Extended out stripes and added Heritage Grill


New PIONEER Double Dinn DVD/Nav


Eiback lowering springs


MPD1 Rear Spoiler and caliper covers- then had the spoiler striped to match




I was not happy with the way the paint was yellowish on my front bumper, back bumper, gas cap so I bitched to GM enough (where I purchased my car) and they said they would have have all that repainted on GM. Since I had also extended my stripes into the front bumper, they agreed to restripe the car also. So I figured this was the perfect time to add the ground effects and new hood (thank you tax refund). So this saved me some money. Then had to wait a week before we could put the stripes on it.

New sinister hood, street scene ground effects. Also removed the RS badging on back and went with the chevy bow-tie (white with black center) Since it had no stripes we call her WHITEOUT



Stressed for more about a week on what design to do for the new stripes, used my friends from facebook and also Camaro5 fb page to give me some design ideas. I was stumped until my buddy Derrick Hawkins (he is in my camaro club and loves to play with photoshop showed me a moch up of what my car could look like with different stripes. So here is what we chose for her.

Bad Vibe Gets her Attitude back, matte black stripes return but with the new bumble bee stripe pattern to accentuate the hood.





My wallpaper for my computer.


Will post as more mods become complete.

Saw this country road the other day and snapped off a couple of shots
