looks great but one question why do you have no lower grill and also what do you use to edit your photos

I had the bumper painted and installed in my hometown, but ordered the lower grill (and mail slot insert) and had it shipped to Houston, Tx since I would be heading back soon. I now have the lower grill installed. I'll try to get some updated pics (at another location) this weekend.

I use PaintShopPro 4, using its HDR tool. The photo effects were mainly fr something in the program called "local tone mapping".

This past weekend I installed BMR's 1.2" Lowering Springs. This mod definitely makes a big impact on the stance of the Camaro!

I also recently blacked out the taillights and sidemarkers...

Last week, I finally started Project stripe. It'll be a gloss black center stripe starting from the "mail slot" and ending just before the spoiler, with a metallic blue pinstripe around. So far, the hood has been painted. In December, I'll finish the rest of the stripe.

Photoshop of the complete stripe



Stripe so far...

Here's a new photoshop technique I just learned: I can add motion to any still pic!

Thumbs up

Enjoyed your thread, that motion effect is cool. I'm a new LS owner and like someone else stated you do us proud. Really dig your photo skills, locations, & use of natual lighting. It is an artform that hopefully I can gleen from.

Thanks for looking and taking time to comment!

Congrats on the new Camaro! The LS is a great canvas to make your own; from what I see, you've already started with the personalization! I appreciate the compliments! I didn't really get into photography until I got this car, so I'm still in the early learning phase.

Hey man, I've been following your thread for a while and I love your car. I have a 2012 Camaro LS with 18in wheels just like yours and you have totally convinced me to lower it! It looks so much better like that! What tires do you have on?

Thanks!

Thanks! Lowering the car made a big difference both looks and performance wise! I still have the stock tires, but I'm hoping to change them out for wider tires soon (265's up front, 295's rear).

For the springs, look into BMR's springs; they're top quality at an unbeatable price. Apex Chase is the go-to guy for BMR products.

Ok thanks! And you can fit 295s on 18s?

Mine are 18x9 all around. A friend of mine has 295's on his 18" set up, but will be going wider soon...
