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

Treat the wheels like the paint on your car. If small swirl marks show up, you can polish them with specific polish, then wax them after polishing. Polishing is just to remove major blemishes. You can use many synthetic waxes on the market from reputable brands. Adams has good stuff (even though very pricey), and a simple spray wax like Adams Quick sealant(http://www.adamspolishes.com/p-701-a...k-sealant.aspx), or their machine super sealant (http://www.adamspolishes.com/p-139-a...r-sealant.aspx).

Now, if you take care of the rims and don't clean them at car shows a lot with a micro rag while dirty from the drive there, then you'll minimize wheel damage. Clean them only when washing the car with a soft boars hairs brush from Adams, or a very soft washing pad, then dry them with a very good quality microfiber towel, or better yet blow them dry using an electric leaf blower. I use a leaf blower, but I make sure everything around the car is clear so it doesn't get blown onto the wheels. This usually eliminates swirl marks, and water spots, as well as temporary rusted rotors.
