Yeah, it sucked that it took me so long to get them installed and functioning correctly, but I do agree that they are worth it. I drove my Camaro to work today and I wanted to keep shifting because the new paddles made it so much more fun than the OEM version.

I am trying to hold off on posting pics of the new mods I am working on, but I will give you some idea of what i've got going.

1- I will be completely redoing my LED lighting on my car. I have new strip lighting planned for the entire car, including hidden dual LED scanners, underhood lighting, and some underglow lights. It will be subtle and tasteful.

2- more Victory Red painted items in the engine bay.

3- more exterior carbon fiber parts.

4- more bump in the trunk.

5- a little trunk dress up, including a new trunk liner from Jarheadbobandmax.

I hope that helps for now.

Did you do the JL XD700/5 swap yet? I'm thinking of doing this then adding a couple of subs.

I do have the JL XD700/5 installed. I put it in the stock location using ********'s panel and FARK kit. It sounds way better than stock, but it needs some more bass. I am working with Dennis at Double D Mods to remedy that now. From talking to him, the XD700/5 will work nicely for 1 sub, but will struggle to push more than that. That works for me since I am only planning to run a single 10 or 12 back there. If you want more subs, you might be better off getting the XD400/4 and running a dedicated amp for the subs.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I can't wait until it warms up and I can start installing all the mods I have had piling up all winter! I hope to have some more updates soon!

Springtime may also bring some performance mods, but I just started restoring a 73 Corvette (building a resto-mod) and that is getting most of my mod money now. I just need to see if I can sneak some Camaro goodies past my wife!

Hey Deke, just wanted to say that your car is absolutely hands down the best looking Gen5 Camaro I have seen to date! Simple yet menacing!
I am currently putting all of the ZL1 body parts on my 2013 AGM 2SS....your car sent me over the top.

As for your stereo mods I am running an HD900/5 in mine with a 12w6. it sounds amazing. If you went with a 12w3 on that xd700/5 im sure it would be a great setup.....just my .02 cents. Good luck on your rest-modded 73 sounds like a fun project....but dont leave DekeII out...hahahaha

Hey thanks man! I really appreciate the compliments. The understated look is exactly what I was going for! AGM is such an awesome color too. Please keep me posted on your build!

For the sub, I am leaning towards the JL 12w3. I think it should pair up perfectly with the amp.

You have pushed me over the top, I have been contemplating a type of ravens bluish/purple for mine. Your car is beautiful and I guess I know where my tax dollars are going.

Thanks for the comments and compliments guys! It really means a lot to me! Please keep checking back! Now that it's warming up a bit I can finally get to my new mods. I just need to find some time to do it!

I'm out of town until Wednesday, but I'll take some pics for you then. They are really nice- quality and looks (which they should be for the price). Install was really easy and they match the rockers nicely. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you get them.
