I've seen your car around on the forum, but never had a chance to actually look at your build thread. I really like the hideaway headlights in black. They match the stock grill nicely. I also love the spoiler, I want one so bad for my car but I need to start getting other carbon fiber stuff then haha. I like the rotors and SS brakes I want to do the same to mine if I get a good deal on the brakes.

Keep up the awesome work man, your car is simply amazing.

Lol, Thanks bro.
Yea when I got the spoiler on, I needed to add some carbon fiber haha. What I did was a Carbon fiber license frame, and a carbon fiber magnetic trunk lid blackout. About $40 total.
And for the brakes, I got the calipers brand new off amazon for a great price, and the front ones came from a friend (also brand new).

Took a few pics yesterday after I cleaned her up, stay tuned.

Oh... Hello there...

Next ship.


Played around in PS a bit lol. I wanted to see what I could do graphics wise on the C7. I must say I really love the look of the stripes I gave her. The next car is going to be a C7, and she will carry on the NORMANDY legacy.

Now... Check out how close the front wheels come to making contact with the calipers lol. A business card is a tight fit.
I considered spacers, but a majority of people told me not to do it.
Be very careful if you race the car, when you heat up the brakes everything dilates and you will rub there where the business card is! That is what happened to a friend of mine at the circuit.

3MM spacers on the front now, They were making contact when they heated up lol. The spacers took care of the problem.

I really like how your ACS T3 front fascia doesn't have the lower lip that they come with. How did you get it that way?

BTW, you have the coolest Camaro I've ever seen
