"ST0RMTR00PER" 2010 SW 2LT/RS

hey guys, i have had my car since november 2009 so this isnt a new car build thread. i cant believe i didnt start one earlier, so i guess the mods wont come as fast as they did before. I was 16 when i bought this car for myself. i know, how could a kid buy a brand new camaro? thank god for bar mitzvah checks! lol..... i also had to make $15000 for the difference, thank god for my amazing hands that allow me to make money by doing the thing i love, spinning records! the only thing that stopped me from getting the SS is the gas and insurance for a guy my age, so i had to seek my power from alternative sources. thats where the sts twin turbo kit comes in ..... if only i could get around to installing it lawl! :(Everything on my car has been done by me and my amazing brother, also a senior in high school with me (he has a really sick v6 challenger). we did everything from the rims to springs to my panel blackout in the back to the night rider led! if anyone is in the west LA area and needs help pimping out there camaro for cheap, i'm the man to call, rather than doing it for you, i will do it with you, thus lowering the cost a tremendous amount, without the cost of ANY labor. i just like to think of myself as an artist rather than a mechanic making money, ya know? AND ITS ALL ABOUT THE CAMARO FAMILY! i have worked on 3 others, all RS v6's it just happened like that. My best friend has black, my cousin has silver, and a guy i literally bumped into (i backed up into him while i was checking out his car, FML). okay enough of my story and onto the list and pics....

Engine/ Performance:
H&R super sport coils 2" drop
Magnaflow super 40 exhaust
K&N intake
Brembo Brake Swap

i also have an Escort 9500i radar detector

Exterior:
SS Front Fascia
Heritage Grille
Painted front lip
Matte black roof
Satin Black wheels
Teal brake calipers
Tinted taillights
Black tail light bezels
Black back panel
Matte Black/ gloss white Bowties
Knight Rider LED strip in grille
Red turn signals
Black sidemarkers
20% tints

BEFORE: November 2009



AFTER: June 2012

here are some edited pics

















Haven't updated in a while so here you go.

since last time i have done:

brembo swap






painted roof






plastidipped fascia







not much, but i needed to put something up!

hopefully soon i will get that turbo on there, but at this moment she is in an impound lot thanks to unpaid parking tickets. i get her back monday the day after my birthday :(

but after that i will have a fresh slate which makes me want to go crazy with mods.


until next time.......
















-Blake

First, I try to check out "ALL" the rides here on Camaro5.com As people just keep impressing me with both thier mods and talents as a shutterbug

Secondly, appreciate you service to country and the more rolling tributes we can have on the streets showing our "Support of the Troops" the better

I love Challengers. Almost bought one until they made the announcement that the Camaro was finally going to be produced.

nice job brotha, the storm trooper look is bad azz. the calipers definitely make the wheels pop. ur brothers challenger is sick too. if you go airforce as well, you should do some matte black air force badges and ur cars will look kililer, just an opinion. good luck with it no matter what, looks awesome.
