Cool Bluestreak 2010's IBM LS

Well after almost two years of ownership I have finally decided to start a member journal. Unlike many on here I have not done anything performance related yet, so I can't really call this a "build" thread, but want to document the cosmetic changes I have made so far, any special events related to my car, and have a place to list future modifications whether they be cosmetic or eventually performance related.

Forgive the possible limitations on pictures until I get this thread up to date as I did not originally plan on making one of these threads.

So here we go. . .

The beginning

I am ashamed to admit that I didn't grow up a huge fan of the Camaro, although I had always liked Chevy cars, especially the Corvette. All that changed when I first saw the concept Camaro in the first Transformers movie. The styling of this car instantly caught my attention!

However, I never pictured myself as one who would ever buy a brand new car. As I neared my graduation from college, my parents started asking me if I would get a new car after school. My daily driver at the time was a 1992 Plymouth Duster quickly closing in on 200,000 miles. After talking it over it became evident that I would soon need to look at getting a newer car at least, and not soon after I started to look at the Camaro (just out of curiosity) or the Cobalt. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the LS Camaro was listed for just over $24,000, which was more affordable than I had thought, and when I found out it would be cheaper to insure than the Cobalt that sealed the deal!

Not long after that I went and placed an order for my 2010 IBM Camaro LS. I had never seen IBM in person, but knew I wanted blue and ABM just didn't look dark enough for my taste. After what seemed an eternity of waiting I finally took delivery of MY car on August 22, 2009.

Finding Camaro5 and the beginnig of the "transformation"

It was while searching how to track my order that I found this site through a link to a thread mentioning the spasticsquirrel database. I lurked for quite a while, not posting very frequently under the username AU-Batman, for the college I attended and the nickname I got there. I believe I only have 2 posts under that name, so if any moderator sees this they can delete that account (I didn't find out about changing usernames until much later, sorry ).

It was here that I first found out about the Transformer Edition Camaro that was going to be produced and this is what inspired me to create my own version. I originally didn't think I would add any logos to the Camaro, but as it often does, my childish/nostalgic side won out. I had grown up with the Transformers cartoons being my favorite show and I always liked the character Bluestreak (the gray one), seen below next to his twin Prowl:


I figured if Bumblebee could upgrade to a Camaro, why couldn't he, and with my color choice he was the pefect character. So I found some Autobot badges, ordered a vanity plate and "Bluestreak" was reborn, necessitating my current username.

By this point you can also see that I had added silver bowtie overlays and gill decals as well as polished 20" rims taken off an SS.

May 29, 2010: IMS Camaro/Corvette Customer Appreciation Day

This was the first truly special event with my Camaro. The day before the 2010 Indianpolis 500 I was able to take my car to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and drive a parade lap with nothing but 300+ Corvettes and Camaros. We were also treated to dinner and received free admittance to the Speedway's museum. This event was by dealer invitation only, so it was truly a priviledge to be selected. My dealer was only given eight slots and both SirPhobos1 (who I followed around the track) and I were among that group.

Unfortunately I did not have a digital camera available that day so I can't post the pictures I took, but instead have posted the link to the picture thread statred by BackinBlackSS/RS:
Pics from 2010 INDY 500 Corvette/Camaro Owner Appreciation Event

Here is a picture of my dealer's group before we departed for the Speedway. Credit to SirPhobos1



Here are a couple videos from that day I was able to find on youtube:

You can see my car near the middle of the screen @ 3:29

More personal touches and cosmetic improvements

As we all know, if you stay active on this site for a while it is inevitable that you will be bitten by the mod bug!

One of the first mods I saw on here that really caught my eye was the Heritage grille. This grille is one of the few alternate grilles I like, probably because it elimintaes the wide spaces that are present in the stock grille.
Of course, once I found this, I realized the V6 lower grille doesn't match very well. This problem was solved when I found the Street Scene valence lower grille. These grilles combined change the look of the front end quite nicely.

The next area to be addressed was the door sills. I had seen the "Chevrolet" sill plates but wanted ones that had the CAMARO font, so I purchased the Defenderworx chrome sill plates.

Name:  Interior (600 x 450).jpg

Size:  58.1 KB

At this point I wanted to do something that was truly personal to my car. I found the Emblempros dash plaques that were customizable and decide to go with my car's build date and production # on the plaque. Funny thing is I didn't even notice the space for these until I saw the plaques posted on here.


Continuing with interior modifications I had seen the color matching trim pieces offered by GM, but was disappointed that they only offered four colors. After much searching I found that DSVcustoms was one of the first vendors who offered a paint to match service. IBM door and dash trim soon followed. Here is a before and after picture, and for those who may wonder, mine are not ABL compatible.

Completing the "transformation"

My cosmetic modifications did not end with the ones in the previous post. Along the way I have added several others, all of which have contributed to my Transformers theme.

The first, and probably most simple was adding decals of my car's name in the Transformer text to the cowl and dash trim.

Borrowing from one of the first glimpses of Bumblebee in the Transformer movies I added Aesthetic Creations' Autobot logo decal to the steering wheel.

I later decided that I wanted people to be able to see the Autobot emblem on each external side of the car, so I ordered a set of painted bowties from Gary's Custom.

I finally moved on to the engine bay. The stock engine cover just screams to be painted, and when I finally got around to it I replaced the bowtie center emblem as well.

Yet even with all of this, something was still missing. If my car has a Transformer theme shouldn't I know what it would look like if it could transform? So what can I do but take a photo of Bumblebee. . .

This is to date my favorite modification and definitely gets the most attention. A huge thanks to Corrado Mallia for the excellent work!

That would be a fair assessment. I'm sure it looks worse than it really is since I lumped all of my TF themed mods together, when I have slowly added them over the almost two years I have had the car. Then again, maybe not.

Once I get this thread up to date, which should be with my next post, I will be able to go into more detail on the things I continue to add. As I stated before, I originally hadn't planned on keeping a journal. I do still have quite a few things I want to do, so stay posted. My next project, which I hope to have done by the end of the week, will be perfoming the vehicular equivalent of LASIK surgery on my baby, and I intend to document the entire process.

July 16th, 2011: Second Annual Hare Chevrolet Camaro Rally

I recently had the pleasure of attending the second annual Camaro rally at Hare Chevrolet in Noblesville, IN. This event has been flawlessly organized by members chozn4service and OldSchoolCamaro for each of the last two years. This is a great opportunity to browse other C5 members vehicles and socialize as well. The first rally had quite a good crowd with an estimated 60 or so cars in attendance, but being the first year attracted almost nothing but Indiana owned Camaros. Here is a link to the thread for the first Rally: Dealership wants to host us - Hare Chevrolet Meet (pictures on pages 13 and 14)

The second year saw such an increase in attendance (estimated close to 100 cars) that we had to move off of the dealership's property to accomodate everyone. This year also saw a large crowd of out of state cars as well, including an impressive caravan form Ohio and even cars from North Carolina and Florida. Another additon from the first year was the people's choice awards for best exterior, best interior, and best overall.

Here is a picture of my car parked in its corner at the first rally,

and what a difference a year makes! Here it is collecting the award for best in show at this year's event. (You can ignore my ugly mug, I'm just there to hold the plaque.)

This was the first car show award I have ever won, even though I wouldn't classify this meet as a typical car show.

Bluestreak gets an eye transplant

Today I installed my RS headlights with the SJM dual mode RGB halo kit.

To start I had to remove the front fascia. There are several good DIY threads for this so I did not document that process.

Next I removed the two bolts on both the top and bottom of the headlight housings (forgot to get a pic of the second bottom bolt) and replaced them with the RS lights.

Since this is an LS, and not an RS car, I needed the Ottobody harness (in the large circle) to make this work. For most installations you would use the white wire to power the halos, but with the multicolor kit from SJM you use the connector in the smaller circle.

Next I connected the halo wires of the SJM kit and ran them into the cab on the driver's side under the dash.

The halo wires are then connected to the halo control box

and from the control box wires are run to the control panel.

I wanted to be able to turn my halos on regardless of whether the ignition was on or not, so I found an "always hot" connection under the driver side of the dash to connect the power wire. I also ran the groung wire to the black bolt seen above the power wire.

I am quite pleased with the end result and now have color changing OEM halos on my LS!

You can combine the Red, Blue, and Green to make multiple colors of choice and there is also a strobe function with white and your selected color. As an example of the color mixing here is Blue and Red maxed out together:

Getting back to basics

It's been quite a while since my last post, but I finally have something new to post about.

After less than two years, my aftermarket stripes had degraded into an embarassment. The stripe on the driver side of the hood developed bronze looking stains (see picture below) and there were several small tears in both hood stripes.
Name:  Stained Stripes.JPG
Views: 855
Size:  96.9 KB

I have now finished removing my old stripes in preparation for getting new stripes painted on, going back to a more basic look.

In addition to removing the stripes I have also added one of Emblempros' "LS" badges on the trunk lid. With the addition of the SS wheels, HID headlights, and the planned addition of a factory spoiler I felt my car was losing some of its identity as an LS. I wanted a way to show I am proud to own any Camaro and am not trying to fool anyone. I have another of these badges for the grille, but need to make some sort of bracket for the installation.

Without further rambling, here are some updated pictures I took today.

Internal upgrade

Once again it has been a long time since my last post in here. Part of this could be that I keep my car in storage over the winter. However, as is often the case with this site, browsing through threads has once again led to inspiration. I recently purchased and installed the smoothed and painted center console, speedometer and steering wheels bezels from Gary's Customz in IBM and SIM.

What is not to like?

Bluestreak 2010, I started out on your thread saying,"I like this, I like that, Oh and yes I really like that other". What I should have said was that I like the whole thing!!
What a nice build--and congrats on the Award for the Car Show...they don't just give those things away!--You earned every bit of that award...enjoy and keep us posted...
BTW, I am interested in maybe attending the next one...sounds like a nice day...

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Aquablue, if you haven't found it already, you should check out the Indiana thread. It is constantly updated with dates for events and would be where to find out when the next meet @ Hare will be. Here is the link, and hope to see you around: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=81280

Finishing interior touches and "de-transforming"

Once again it has been far too long since I updated this thread.

I have added some finishing touches to my painted center console by getting the lid painted and adding the Restyle Camaro shifter from Concept Fiber Interiors. This turned out to be quite an ordeal, so you may want to PM me first if you are thinking about ordering from them. I will say that the quality of the pieces is top notch, its just that I had a couple of customer service issues with them.

I also decieded I wanted to address my V6 break calipers. I didn't want to spend the money to do a complete swap to V8 breaks so I ordered a set of the MGP caliper covers. I chose to do a color match to the car and opted for the custom engraving. I must say I am quite pleased with the result.

While I went with the Transformer font for the engraving on my caliper covers. This is the last of the transformer additions that will be going on my car as I have decided to do away with that theme. I realized that I no longer get as much enjoyment from those mods and don't do enough car shows to keep up with the theme. To that note I have removed all but two of the transformer themed elements I previously had installed. All that remain at this point are the steering wheel emblem and rear painted bowtie.

I may find a way to prop up the hoodliner at shows, but unfortunately some of the retainer pins broke and one has been completely lost, causing some slight damage to the mural from rubbing against the engine cover and necessitating my removing it from the hood to prevent further damage. This was probably the largest factor in deciding to move away from my TF theme.

Finally, here are a couple up to date pictures of the car. Its back to looking pretty plain, but that should be changing soon. I am headed to a local body shop to see about getting some custom stripes painted on and installing the factory spoiler I have had sitting around for some time now.

New Stripes; August 2nd C5Fest 3 Cruise

As I mentioned in my last post, I was looking to get new painted stripes put on. I used the Transformers 3 design for my inspiration but kept the pinstriping of the standard rally stripes and changed the dimensions on the hood to come up with a unique look. The body shop painted the stripes and then re-cleared the entire deck lid, roof and hood for a smooth finish, as well as installed my OEM coupe spoiler. I am very pleased with how it all turned out!

As most people here know, this year Camaro 5 Fest was hosted in Indianapolis. I was fortunate enough to get out to the cruise night, but didn't get the chance to make it out to Lucas Oil Raceway for the main events. The cruise had upward of 240 cars which stretched for over 5 miles. Unfortunately I waited until after the cruise was over to take pictures so I didn't get many, however, below are a couple of my car and one of IMO the most interesting car I saw there. I don't know who it belongs to, but it was the first time I had seen anything like it.

Here is the link to the thread for pictures and video from the cruise for any who want a better feel for the event: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=240770. There is a nice series of videos showing every car that went on the cruise pulling out of the hotel parking lot.

P.S. Thanks to Corrado for sending me some new retainer pins so I could reinstall my hoodliner mural.
