My SS Build - Black Flag Edition

So I have a long list of things I want to do to my Camaro. Traded in my 11' Jeep Wrangler for my 13' SS Camaro, its a biter sweet transition. My build is going to be in three phases and you will eventually see what i mean by Black Flag edition.

First phase is going to be exterior MOD's, like side skirts, rear diffusers and spoilers. All things that you can add or delete to the exterior of the vehicle.

Second phase is going to be about lighting. Switch out bulbs to LED's, install RS headlight, afterburners tails lights and other such modifications.

Third phase is performance MOD's. I dont put too many miles on my vehicle to beginning with so performance MOD's will be the last thing to do, going to give the engine time to break in.

So here she is the day i bought her at Norman Frede Chevrolet, 12/07/2012.

Because I didn't like the new wheel style so had them switched out at the dealership.

The 2010-12 wheels are still available as an option.

Nothing really new installed. I entered my Camaro in a car show here in Houston called "Aeros & Autos", unfortunately I didn't win and got beat by a fellow club member. Just wanted to post a recent picture of the ride from the show.
