newagemuscle's Bulid Journal

newagemuscle's Build Journal

This build jounal will walk you through the journey of modifying my 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS. I fell in love with this car the first time I saw it at the Detroit Auto Show. As for the color, I have always been a fan of yellow sports cars and after seeing it in the Transformers I knew that was what I wanted. I took delivery of it from Buff Whelan Chevrolet here in Michigan on October 4, 2009.

Like many here, my initial intensions for this car were never planned to go as far as they have to date. At one time I actually believed I would be content with just a simple axle back exhaust and cold air induction. As you can tell by the pictures it has evolved into a whole different story.

I want to say the journey is complete…and keep telling myself and wife that, but it always seems like something new catches my eye and wallet.

Enjoy…

I just got my SRP heel guards to save my mats. I think it adds a nice touch and works well with my SRP pedals and Lyodd floor mats.

Installed mt Scott Drake strut covers today. these are billet aluminun and anodized black which matches my Elite catch can nice. These basically swap out the factory stamped piece. I think they add a nice touch to the engine compartment.

WOW! Your car looks amazing! I was looking at a yellow SS and had just bought the TSW Nurburgrings in matte gunmetal and searched google for the combo. Your car came up and I fell in love... Hope you don't mind a car looking similar to yours but it's freaking awesome looking! Keep it up!!!

Thanks. I saw on another post of yours that you got the TSW's. One thing I might suggest is you do away with those nasty chrome TSW center caps. Here was my fix. Dupli-Color Perfect Match (Storm Gray Met). This stuff is pretty mutch a perfect match.

My latest winter mod (Quad Exhaust Tips)

I already posted this, but I felt it was worthy to be incuded in my build thread. Just picked up the diffuser from another C5 member. I also order the 3 1/2 inch exhaust tips from:

http://tips.byethost4.com/

Here are some pics. The finished product is a few months away because she's in storage still.

Thanks, No... not yet. I'm not really sure how I would find out if it does Win car of the week. Maybe I get a private message from one of the moderators.

Thanks. I don't think I could have used this as a daily driver if I wanted to with the weather we have been getting lately here in MI.

My Nitto Invos arrived

My Invos came yesterday. 275/315. Man... these things are a lot wider looking that I thought they would be. Can't wait to get them on the car.

No doubt... I was just telling someone yesterday that last year I had my car insured the last week of February. The way things are going I don't see getting it out this year until the middle of April if were lucky. Lope to see you around. Are you involved in any car clubs? I have got together with the Detroit 5th Gen a few times, but overall I'm just a car enthusiast that just likes to get out and cruise.

I am hoping for mid April, earlier this week looked promising. My car is in heated storage so it makes it a little easier not having to look at it sitting in the garage. I do have a collection of new parts waiting to go on when spring does get here. Have not attended any 5th gen events yet, like the local cruise nights and like you, just get out and drive.
