Welcome to the HeadTurners, the only Camaro Club with World Domination!


Listen to Tim (Farthest), MPG covers are ok, but Brembos are better. Get ready to break out the air saw for cutting into you front quarter panel for the 3dCarbon Vents. I went with them, because they actually dispurse brake heat and not just for show. But you will have the jitters when you cut into that panel, just use the template 3d sends you, measure it off well, and test fit once you get the hole cut, and test again..DO NOT use the double sided tape provided. Use black windshield epoxy, it comes in tubes just like caulk. They WILL NOT come out once installed that way.

Thanks man that's great advice and I know I'd love brembos but my money's gonna be tied up in the lambo doors and the vents I'm letting Lupe install them with my doors so I don't have to cut I was way to worried about my tracing skills to cut tht panel alone. I normally pay for big projects to be installed haha small stuff I install no problem.

Then don't waste your money on the MPG covers, and just save up. Do it right the first time and don't back track and spend double the money.

Wow great looking build. I have really been thinking about some fender vents also. I really like how they look and how they get some of the heat out.

Thanks for the nice words diamond and yeh man go for it they look great and I was super surprised that the vents get heat out. My brakes kinda suck though I wasted like 100 on painting my calipers IBM and they don't even show so now I'm gonna have to get red covers then eventually brembros

Car looks GREAT IBM Camaro! Well done!

I like everything color wise, but agree that the kilis is a VERY heavy wheel in 22". The size looks great though. The red pop of the colors will look good, although make sure you like the look of the covers. I would just save up your money and skip the covers, go straight to brembos and have them powdercoated a bright color like red, or SOM like I went with mine. =)

Fender vents look sick, but are pretty expensive. I'm interested to see how you finish this car. Keep up the good work!

I think ima jut take everyone's advice and get the brembos the 200 for just a cover is a waste ill just get some red paint and pant them for now and wait to get powdercoated calipers. Glad you like my car means alot coming from one if the best IBM on this site.
Yh I can't wait for the fender vents to come its gonna be so cool
