Demon Bu1LT's thread

I have put it off and put it off but finally started my build thread. I fell in love with the Camaro in 1995. When GM brought it back I thought it was awesome but didn't think I'd ever be able to own one. In 2011 my entire life came to a grinding halt with three heart surgeries. I felt like I was going through hell at that time. In 2012 I was medically cleared and allowed to escape hell. I came upon Demon Bu1LT at that time and decided why not partner up with him. I came into this with very little about cars and modifications. I discovered camaro5 which has been an invaluable source to me. I found The Camaros of East Texas club through this site as well, great people and great times.

I didn't take many pictures in the beginning but I have since made sure to take plenty. So with out any further delay...I give you Demon Bu1LT.

2012 1LT Non-RS

Thank you for the kind words! I plan on uploading quite a few photos tonight, or at least that is the plan.

After a ton of reading my first mod was plastidipping the wheels, bowties, badges, and taillight bezels. I know some people hate plasti dip but it has allowed me to see if I like the way something looks before permanently doing it.

After my first venture into plasti dip I decided to do my fuel door and spoiler. Like I've said before, when I started modding I didn't know a lot and was timid on taking my car apart. This is why I did my spoiler in the most difficult way possible. If I could go back in time and show myself how easy it could have been....

The mod bug had sunk it's teeth into me now and it wasn't letting go. I got my first performance mod, CAI intake, and actually installed it myself. A huge feat for a guy that hasn't really turned a wrench under a hood before. I cleaned the engine bay when I was done. OCD engage!!!

After reading every striping thread on the forum, there is a crap ton, I loved the NS1 stripes. I used them for inspiration but changed a few things. The stripes on the roof, I widened a little and gave a slightly tapered look. I also carried the hash marks a little further back on the fenders and extended them lower a bit. Brace yourself for a photo storm!

I reapplied plasti dip to the taillight bezels and painted the engine cover and fuse box cover.

Had the chance to pick up the strut brace for a great price. Dipped it and put it on. I like the look it adds to the engine bay.

Had some of the engine bay hydrodipped. I liked the design at first but now not so much. Will be switching it up soon.

Bought the gauge cluster from a member on here. I was surprised at how easy of an install it was. I also added the T-rex phantom grille.

I researched leather seating options. I went with IGGEE synthetic leather covers. The install had me wishing I had a luxurious full head of hair so I could rip it all out. Having someone to help with the install would have made it a much different experience. I am satisfied with the look though. I also swapped out the plain jane shifter to one with yellow stitching.

I thought the seat covers were a pain in the butt. I had no idea I was about to push my sanity to it's limits. I picked up some door panels from another member, Camaro724. My plan was to paint the panels yellow and swap my cloth ones out with them. Simple right? Well, I jumped right into painting the inserts....without thinking to clean them first. The paint fisheyed all over the inserts. So after three days of carefully stripping the paint back of I prep the inserts and painted them. They turned out great that time. I also removed the fabric from my dash strip, prepped it and painted it. Really changed up the interior.

Bought a set of Havoc wheels from another member here. Once I had them on I hated the way the calipers looked so I ordered a set of covers or them. I'm happy with the outcome. The wheels really made a huge difference to the look of the car.

Thanks!! It took a lot of patience and time. I love to do things on my own but it doesn't always work out for the best.

Very nicely done! Like the new shift knob much better! The stripes and grill really set that car apart.
