Spade's Bumblebee

First, I am a new camaro owner since August. I was thrilled when Transformers came out and I had to wait for a few years before the wife and I finally found car we, as well as our younger son loved. It is a '10 1LT. We purchased the car with the 2012 spoiler, bee stripes, transformers sill plate and emblems on the fenders, dual halos, BBK CAI and headers, and a complete magna flow exhaust. A lucky find on our part. Since then, I added and 15% tint, elite catch can, AAC turn signals and painted the engine cover. So far, so good. Thanks for letting me show it off.

More updates...

This week, I painted the calipers and had the wheels powder coated black. In addition, the taillights were tinted with VHT tint and the bumblebee bow ties were purchased from another forum member. I have a Zl1 grill waiting to be installed along with ACS ports. I'll see when I can get to them. I like how its still Bumblebee, but subtle tweaks to make it my own version.

I haven't been on in a while but I wanted to share my latest. It's a HID retrofit with Halos. More to follow.

I used halogen headlights, sand blasted to get the chrome off and painted black. Projector housing for HIDs and oracle halos. Once they are installed, I can post some completed pics if interested.

This. People give me crap because my Bee is different, but it's MY Bee. Michael Bay isn't the only one who gets to say what Bee should look like...
