No problem, lets take it to the track.

You can rotate photos in all the various online photo upload/editors like photobucket, Flickr, etc. Once it's rotated, then input the picture on Camaro5.

Hello! We should all be proud of our LLT's. Nice looking Camaro & a nice list of mods. One of these days I'll get the energy to wade back through the tons of pics I have & make me a build thread. Great job.

thanks

yea its really annoying to start it up. Do what I did and start a thread even if it has almost nothing. That way you will make yourself add to it over time. I would have just held it off even longer if I didnt do it that way. Good luck with yours!

You should make one Ruby. Your car is fantastic. It's well worth the time.

I would like to thank IDEALG and WHEELWAREHOUSE from camaro5. They were both extremely nice guys that helped me out a lot. It is nice knowing that there are good-hearted and honest people out there.

TCAT isnt the only one with them (in gloss black) on a camaro now

Now THAT'S badass!!! It looks absolutely stunning man! I can't help but say, didn't I tell you they would look bitchin'?!!! They are LIGHT, affordable, AND look incredible. You couldn't want any more than that . Make sure to use a sealant type of wax on them (when they are perfectly clean ovsiouly), and make sure you don't park close to curbs. LOL
