Started playing with the tint to change the look initially

50% tint on side windows, 20% on the rear window.

Bought 20% tint from headlight armors for all the lights around. And carbon fiber vinyl for Bowties

Few photos after adding the tint


















Next, i added SLP vinyl for the side gills and added a pin stripe red vinyl for alloys.


















I've seen people painting rear bezels black here but never thought of plasti dip and i painted them with flat black. They turned great as it was my first paint job

And i bought a vinyl from ebay to black out the trunk also.
Few photos after the changes

Performance time

Bought Elite Catch Can, MRT v2.0, CAI's cold air intake from Apex Chase

And VMAX ported throttle body from Ivan@southwest speed

Installed MRT V2.0 myself but later decided to go to muffler shop and do the weld job.

Painted CAI's intake to match the car



Now, i also bought Ported throttle body from Ivan@southwest. I thought, there is no point of painting it, since it will be under engine cover. So left it unpainted.



So installed all the parts, and now its time to paint the engine cover. Started a thread asking people to post their engine covers and created mine. Kind of inspired by you all









A camaro5 member iKeablr made CAMARO silhouette decal for me. He did a wonderful job creating it. Here are the results decal and GM strut tower brace install

Plasti Dip project time

I was thinking to do something on a weekend and decided to try pasti dipping something on my car. Went to home depot and bought like 4-5 cans of black.

Started with plasti dipping alloys. Came out great so went ahead and started plasti dipping hash marks. And finally dipped my front fascia and lower bumper.

Love the black on red look overall.

So to finish up this project. I painted break calipers red with dupli color and painted CAMARO fender emblems with sating flat back and installed them back on car.

All these are done on one weekend. Im happy with the results

Here are few photos of final result

I have Apex W/W relocation kit and air scoop sitting in my home for a long time.
I bought heritage grille from Maureen and Drl harness, bulbs from ofer@Gen5DIY.
We have got great vendors here. I cant be more happy with all my experience with everyone.
So, i decided to work on all of them last weekend. Here are the results







I was planning to ask Chris @xVengeancex28 for a wallpaper and sig from a long time and finally requested him for one.

After i posted a photo on his thread here, i got a message from him in about 15mins to check out the result. This dude, got some crazy skills and pretty quick in doing them. Thanks chris

Awesome looking Camaro. I think it might be the first time I have seen a Camaro with the rally stripes and the side hash marks. I really like the look
