2010 PROJECT CAMARO (Pic Heavy)

I acquired my 2010 Camaro SS L99 about a year ago. I planned on a few mods at the time and then became obsessed with the car like many others. This journal will chronicle the obsession. As I started getting into the project deaper, I wanted performance and style which doesn't always go hand in hand with these projects. I'm going to break this down by performance and cosmetic. The goal was to have a Camaro that was faster than snot and looked even faster. I wanted the original body style, because it was my personal opinion it was a little bolder (muscle car look). I did all the work/wrenching including some of the painting, some parts were easier to have painted.

The tune was done by Cunningham Motorsport's. The rear end was replaced with 3.91 GM gears. BMR Products , Chassis Brace, Bushings, Tunnel Brace, Trailing Arms were also added.

Thanks Brother. Trying to give something back to a great community that guided me through the build.
