Alright guys so I decided to do this one right and create a build thread. So here's my story.

I bought my Summit White 2011 2LT Camaro on april 22, 2010. I instantly fell in love with this car. Stumbling around looking to add a few minor parts ( lying to myself about a few ) i came upon camaro5 and boy did i hit the jackpot!!! Anything and everything to do with these cars was a mouse click away. For me this was both amazing and horrible haha, Horrible because it just fed the monster made him grow ten times bigger. The mod monster and we all know what im talking about.

After a short year and a half and 26,000miles later my fiance and I were looking to buy a house and we came up a little short on the down payment so we had to sell my baby there was just to much equity in the car. So instead of doing what i know I should have done( Bought another CAMARO) i ended up buying a range rover sport and rolling in that for awhile. Although it was a great ride, my heart sank every time I passed one of those beautiful pieces of art. So I sacked up started looking for another one took the small hit in my credit and found a 2011 1SS/RS in summit white Manuel with only 4800 miles on it. I was instantly in love haha. My new baby mono arrives tomorrow November 28, 2012. The horrible and amazing part is my sales guy really helped me out with the deal and they are letting me add a few mods to my financing, oh God the flood gates are open.......

I named my new baby Mono because im going with the same theme monochromatic "White and Matte Black"

Well Shooooooot!!!! ^^^^ How that changed haha, She has a full new one of a kind paint job!!! Her main color is a satin frost pearl white with glossy black accents!!!!

So sexy

I would like to Thank my Sponsors Giovanna Wheels, if any one is interested in a set of wheels pm me and Ill get you in contact with a great rep.

Got the car back and got a couple of things done, also i had the trim on the doors redone in White suede. so here are a couple pics of the build. However my girl is back in the shop until wednesday I got a couple more things done

This time around a few smaller things

-The little vents on the hood are getting painted Matte black to match
-I got a duraflex gm ground fx look a like to rear valence that is getting painted and put on
-matte black side reflector lights are being added as well

Mods to be done in the next couple weeks,

All already ordered just waiting for them to arrive

-Razzi Side skirts (might go a different direction than with these)
so if anyone is looking for a set pm me or leave a post
-generation 5 unrestricted motorsports spoiler
-Aset of TSW Brooklands Matte Black 20' off set 8.5(2) 10(2)

I was kinda up in the air about these rims, I saw them when I had my last camaro and didnt love them but they were good looking and then all of a sudden I saw them on another white camaro and I instantly fell in love, I also have some custom paint work ideas that will be going on these rims as well

Okay so just a few things about the rideskinz bumper, As soon as it came out i knew I would have to have one. They just looked so sweet. With that said they offer a great product but with that comes a great expense. they have a LOT of fitment issues.

Talked to tony, the manager at rideskinz, and he helped me explain to the shop what needed done. A great guy with great customer service!!!!

They add more than needed material so you or the shop can sand it down to the exact fitment you want

with that said here are some pics

Behic...welcome back. Got a radio and Metra from you a few months ago. If you'd like it back, I'm thinking of putting the stock radio back in.

It works great! Might be stepping up to a '13 ZL-1 in a few months and it comes with Nav, so I won't need it. At first the AC didn't work, but because you had an LT, it needed me software. After that got fixed its been fine. Your new car is looking badass by the way!

Whenever we hook up and if I get it you can definitely take it for a spin. No rush right now as it'll probably be a couple of months. No worries on the AC thing. It was software because it came from an LT. Only thing that sucked was it was July and hot as hell that week.

Yea I loved those rims but was just going for something a little different. They definitely made the car pop though but was trying to go with something a little less drastic a little more classy haha

I think you have done a fantastic job with everything so far! With that said, i would make them fit that hood better than it is right now. You can see some fitment issues with it in all the frontal photos. I can imagine it bugs the hell out of you already!
