UPDATE : My AAC LED Reverse lights were also installed sometime back, but I finally decided to pull some of the photos off of my digital camera to add them to my build thread, lol.

They definitely help you see better at night, and backing up when it's pitch dark outside is 10x easier with these installed. Definitely a recommended mod for all Camaro owners.


Next up on my list is new Badges for the side fenders from emblempros.com, as well as a custom underhood bowtie from them.

Car looks real good. Simple and very clean mods. Truly one of the best on the site. The rims set it off. Its refreshing to see non-ZL1 clones that look damn good.

VA Beach? I'm from Chesapeake. Got fam' in both areas. I know who to hit up if I need help installing stuff, haha. Love the plate too! Congrats.

Thanks, that means a lot!! I don't "despise" ZL1 clones, but I definitely don't really care for the front end swaps and some of the other stuff people do to make it look too much like the actual model. I take pride in trying to "personalize" my car, so that people THINK it's a special edition. For the past two years, I've had numerous people ask me if my car was a Special edition model, which means I'm doing something right.

Unfortunately, I'm in the Military, and I just PCS'd to Fort Campbell KY, so I'm no longer in Va beach. I wish I had known you were in my area, we could have linked up and tackled some projects and installs bro!

UPDATE : I finally got around to ordering a custom underhood bowtie via Emblempros.com. I have ordered from there before, and I love the quality of work, fit and finish of everything they make. Here is the custom bowtie I had made, I think it's absolutely gorgeous :

UPDATE : This week, a lot of parts came in for my car so I could start re-doing the appearance of the front end before winter time. I wanted to re-badge the grill, the fenders, as well as add a custom under hood bowtie.

I started with the bowtie, which was a fairly quick install, and definitely changes the appearance of the engine bay :







I must say it goes pretty well with the Roto-Fab custom engine covers

Next, I would tackle the fenders. I knew getting the 3M adhesive off would be a bit of a pain, so I made sure I bought a Heat gun, dental floss, Goo Gone, and 3M adhesive remover to make the process easier :







The reasoning behind me removing the fender emblems??

1. I like dark colors. I felt like the emblems stuck out like a sore thumb on the sides with the "chrome" plating.

2. I also felt that the LS3 badging should tie into the Powerplant, which means it has no place on the side of the car.

I purchased the "Black Onyx" Camaro Lettering from Emblempros.com (they have made a killing off of me this year lol), which I think look really good against CGM. I thought about doing flat black lettering, but I think this choice was just as good :
