You have an amazing car. It is just stunning! I live in CA and IMB Camaros are super rare, so seeing yours is a real treat.

OK, so I ordered the leather for the car today-- got a great deal on C5, less than $500! Now I just have to find different headrest covers, 'cause I'm not gonna leave SS headrest covers in my RS.

I am picking up the GM GFX rear diffuser tomorrow, can't wait to install that! Love the square exhaust.

Big mods this month!

OK! GM GFX Diffuser installed!

Will be moving the mufflers back about an inch and putting mesh over the square exhaust ports so you don't see the circles inside the squares, because that bothers me. But all in all I LOVE the look. Even without the side skirts; you don't need them to just install the diffuser. It doesn't look out of place.

My boyfriend works at a machinist shop and is looking into fabbing the mesh panels for me.

Also, leather came in! Just can't afford to have it installed yet. It'll happen when the weather cools down. Going to have the SS panels in the headrests replaced with RS, probably.

Pics!

Very nice job on the engine cover and fuse box!

That's what I am looking to do next. Where did you get the paint and badging? Also, saw you just got new leather (congrats!) ever thought of dying the stitching? Check out mine, it's the cheapest mod you can do! About $10 in thread dye markers.

I have already begun dying the stitching aqua blue :-) my steering wheel and shifter stitching is dyed. Just used a sharpie!

I got the badging from the dealer and had the lettering cut at a local decal/vinyl shop.

Thanks guys! I thought I was almost done modding but I just keep finding more to do!

Hey Sarah! Beautifull job! Question? Are u thinking on upgrade your suspension? Or you don't think it matters? I ask you because i have the same performance mods, and i'm thinking on get sway bars but i like a pro advice first!

Monchy you should do what I did and put the SS suspension on yours. I got the springs, shocks, struts and sways free as takeoffs from SS owners who upgraded.

And you didn't make any changes? It fit? How's the performance with the SS suspension? TIA!
