UPDATE: So I finally got word from the shop today that my car will be ready to pick up tomorrow! After over two months of waiting for this shop to get my car done I'm finally getting her back!

I just wanna add a sidenote that I will never be going back to that shop again. I don't wanna turn this into a rant but at first when I spoke to the owner he seemed enthusiastic about the job and ensured it would be done quickly, and it would be done right. It seemed like it was done right, but not quickly and I never once was contacted by him to give me updates to let me know how things were. I had to call him every week. Each time I called it was always, they ran into another problem, when asked about ETA on completion I was always given "3 Days." 2 1/2 months later I can finally have my car back.

ANYWAYS, I Kind of ranted anyways .
But on a brightside, I get my car back, and as soon as I do, a buddy from work is going to help me put on the Stainless Works Catback exhaust I purchased from Jessika! Which BTW, gave great customer service

As soon as I can I will upoad pics. Stay tuned!

I got my car back on Wednesday and was finally able to take some pictures the other day but couldn't upload due to the sites maintenance but here they are! The weather hasn't been too good so this is the best i could do for now.

New MPD1 ZForce Hood, Rideskinz Aggressor front fascia, GM ground FX side skirts, and a spear stripe painted on the side of the car. Let me know what you guys think! :smile:







And my favorite pic so far



Sorry for such crappy photos, these were all taken on my cell phone. I should probably invest in a decent camera Haha. I wanna say thanks to Eric at MPD1 for the awesome quality in the hood and fit and customer service, Tony at Rideskinz for the great looking front fascia. Although it was a pain to install it turned out great! Lupe at Overhaul engines for the painted Bowties, quality was also fantastic, and Roger at Emblempros for the SS emblems that i still need to put on . They look awesome though!

I also have my SW exhaust installed and it sounds great! I will get a video recorded and uploaded later. Thanks again to Jessika for the customer service and FAST shipping.

I really like the hood and front end. Best color on a Camaro is yellow too. I think a dovetail spoiler would complete the look.

Nice work!

Here's a couple of pics after getting the catback exhaust put on! I'm still working on getting a video. I'm just looking for a decent piece of recording equipment. I don't want it to sound distorted. I'm really happy with the sound and ease of installation. Took about an hour with the help of a coworker using the hoist at work.



Getting rid of those HUGE cans on our cars called mufflers was nice. The chambered exhaust looks a lot cleaner

So.. i've been kind of MIA for a little while due to work being extremely busy but now that it has slowed down a bit i have some more free time to spend on the forums haha.

So I've been debating with myself on whether or not to pull the trigger and buying a ported throttle body, longtube headers tune my car and possibly get a Maggie supercharger and void my warranty. So far the mod bug is winning and i may be in the process purchasing these camaro goodies soon.

I'm still recovering from the slew of mods i just finished but the mod bug never stops. I befriended someone who paints cars at the local body shop and he gave me a REALLY good deal on Repainting my entire car sunrise yellow with either a black pearl for the black stripes on my car or a metallic black. It would also give me an opportunity to fix all the mistakes the other body shop did with the paint i currently have.
With that being said, i was also interested in the painted strut tower brace from lupe. I'll have to shoot him a PM to see if he can paint my brace sunrise yellow to match my car for when i get it painted.

On top of all that i'm still itching to purchase some TSW Nurburgrings as well. I just cant decide on whether or not i should go with the machined face or the Matte gunmetal finish.

Anyways, enough of the novel i just wrote, I'll be updating soon with what the mod bug has caused me to do next. I believe if i do not get the supercharger now, the paint job will be in order and that will really set the car off in my opinion. Stay tuned!

Hey Samuel, I recently just bought my first car, which to my joy is a 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS. Great job on your car, it looks absolutely amazing. My question to you is, Where are the front lip and side skirts from?

So I finally found the time to come back to come back to the site and update my progress.

Nothing HUGE so far but I did pull the trigger on the TSW's and wrapped them with some nitto invos! If the pics don't upload I'll try tomorrow to see if I can get them to work. Thanks for the compliments so far. I appreciate it!

New update! Evrything is pretty much the same. I did have a buddy of mine help me paint my steering wheel, center console, and guage cluster. I decided to steer away from the popular color match everything everything trend and do red and black for the interior. I plan on adding more in the future but this is a good start for now. I thibk they turned out pretty decent, but then again it is my car haha.
