My Car

Finally decided to try to start up a build thread of my car, let's give this a try. I have a Black 2011 2SS. Brought her home on 1/28/13. Say hello.



















First thing I did was add some tint. 5% all the way around

Before:


After:






Next mod was some exhaust, had loved the sound of BORLA before I even got my car. Four days after taking home my car, I took it to the local shop(Cajun Muffler) to install my BORLA ATAK Catback system.


Always have loved the concept of black and red, so that's what I set out to do. PlastiDipped my rims and exhaust tips, and covered my "Camaro" lettering with reflective red, and blacked out my rear lights.
















Next thing I wanted to do was add some interior and exterior lighting(red of course)












Then I installed some halos myself which were a pain in the a**. White/Red or pink if you put them together.











Had a little break in between my mods, so here are a few pictures while I was waiting




Friend of mines old truck








Next was a CAI from BBK Performance.

Before:


After:




Next I put on some red hood stripes and gills










A few more randoms, would need to do a professional photo shoot one day.












Mustangs know their place.




Next I put in some red interior accents.






Red fog lights




PlastiDipped my engine cover


Got 2 12" Q Powers instaled with a 1600w amp


Next I ordered some ZL1 Replica Rims and had them installed(must say, I personally love these rims)
















More mods and pictures to come.

Looks great! Where did you get the new wheels? When I get home I want to get black wheels on mine. Everything else on my 2010 2SS is black except the wheels.

Installed Stainless Works headers with OffRoad pipe and a tune.





Slapped on some 305/35/20 Drag Radials



Will also put some sound clips whenever I figure out how to. Lol
