Second modification was 15% window tint from the Speaker Box in Madison, AL. Top notch service from these guys. Thanks to my wife Amy for picking up the bill for this mod. I just didn't tell her it was illegal.

5th modification was the GM 1LE front splitter. March 21st 2013. Installed by Freddy Louis in Huntsville, AL. This was a major upgrade in the looks department and really brought my black and red theme together.

The UPS guys dropped off some goodies early this week. This will be my best mod to date. Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires. 285/35ZR20 for the front and 305/35ZR20 for the rear. Gonna be mounting these on my new LG Motorsports ZR28 wheels from Maryland Speed.

...In with the new. This has to be the best upgrade you can ever do. In addition to the better handling, this change made it look like I had a completely different car.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the compliments. I've got some new updates. I received my new Heritage Grille from Phastek and took it the next day to a local dealership for paint. I also received my custom designed domed center caps. I couldn't wait to get these on the car and finish off my final vision for my Camaro's new wheels. The retro Camaro crest in yellow and black is a nod to the Ferrari look that I am going for with this car.

It was facelift time for the Red Devil over the weekend. My son Matt and I pulled the nose off to install the newly painted Heritage Grill. We followed a YouTube video made by Camaro5 member GTAHVIT which made the install a piece of cake.
