Thanks! I need to get a new camera, so I can take pictures! My camera phone stopped working. Yeah, I need to make myself seen at one of the meets real soon and hopefully shoot some hoops with you guys. I definitely don't want to get chunky!!!

While I was taking a video of the LED Tail Lights, I decided to take a few still shots of the IOM as it looks today!

Nice car. I see you in my neighborhood all of the time. I pulled on to 281 behind you tonight on my way to the gas station.

I installed my latest modification today with the help of my good buddy, Lupe! We started around 9:30 this morning and finished around 3:30pm. We ran into a minor issue with the Halos not functioning correctly, so I called JDP Motorsports and spoke with Aimee and Jeremy. They provided top notch customer service and we were able to get the Halos working correctly! I am very pleased with how it turned out! Enjoy the brief show!!

Here are some photos of DAP-ONE provided by other C5 Members during the 2nd Texas-Wide Camaro Meet in Austin held on April 28, 2012. I had a great time and looking forward to the next one!

On Friday, May 25th (which just happens to be my birthday), I will be dropping the car off to get Pedderized!

I decided to pull the trigger and get the car lowered and have the suspension upgraded with these goodies:

EP6579 - Camaro Front Radius Rod HD Inserts
EP1200 - Camaro Rear Subframe Inserts
Camaro ZL1 SwayBar Conversion
22845487 - ZL1 GM Toe Links
164086 - Camaro XA Supercar Coilovers

Prior to dropping off the car this past Friday, Lupe helped me install these AAC "Ghosted" side-markers...

I decided to get in on the group buy with AAC for the ORACLE concept-style side mirrors. We need a total of 100 buys for the order to fill.
I also ordered a dash plaque from Emblempros.com.

I was on my way home from my daughter's club volleyball try-outs today when a young man on a speed bike pulls up next to me and gives me a thumbs up for the color-changing halos. I had it on "green" at the time. Perhaps it was his favorite color.

Three years ago today, I placed my order for a 2010 Camaro SS IOM with Lundquist Chevrolet.

Replaced the factory grille with the Heritage Grille and also added more lighting modifications, grille lighting and IOM LED's for the satin cup holder that I purchased at CamaroFest3.

Yesterday, I was driving back from my lunch break and was parking in the garage where I work. I was behind a black pickup truck and noticed the guys were looking back at my color-changing halos and grille lighting. I saw them walking into our building and one of them says..."Those are nice lights on your ride!"
