RKCamaro13's Build Thread

I thought it was about time I start my own build thread, so better late than never. I got my camaro about a year and half ago a 1LT RS Victory Red, about a month later I found out about camaro5 and the modding began.
Here it was when I got it.

The first thing I did was change out the door inserts. Thanks Ofer for all the help and the ABL hardware.

Next I wanted to change my car up to where it stood out from other camaros. I ordered my hood from MPD1 and had to leave it unpainted for a month so it could acclimate to the heat of the engine, but it was well worth it. Also got my antenna back with the hood and put it on also.

Then I had Katskinz leather put in and installed my engine cover fuse box cover and RotoFab CAI, which involved a bit off cutting due to the hood
