heavenSSoldier – 2010 Camaro 2SS

Build thread for heavenSSoldier – 2010 Camaro 2SS A6

Better late than never…this build begins with my love for Camaros. My first car was a 1991 Camaro V8 305 and unfortunately I sold it to my uncle when I joined the Navy right after 9/11, September 22, 2001 to be exact. After a few years I wanted it back but the timing was never right so my uncle kept the car and started to build it his own way. In 2010 I started eyeing the new Camaro and feel in love with it. Duty called and I was deployed to Afghanistan for a year. Every chance I got I would log onto the computer, talk to the family and search for the beautiful Camaro.

Upon my return from deployment my wife surprised me…she knew that I wanted a Camaro so without me asking her she took me on a field trip straight to the dealership. That’s where I found the second love of my life a 2010 Black Camaro 2 SS. Without a doubt I knew she was the one, love at first sight. The day was May 31, 2011 in San Antonio, Texas when she came home with me. She’s been with me since and the bond has never been stronger.

Below are the mods I have done and what I plan to do…


Appearance Mods:
VIS Racing AMS Carbon Fiber Hood
ZL1 Front Bumper
Stillen Side Skirts
Oracle HALO Dual Color Headlight Kit
Dual Exhaust Rear Diffuser

Tinted Windows
Powder Coat Rims Black and Red
Black Ghosted Concept Side Markers

Interior Mods:
Alpine INA-W910 Audio/Video/Navigation Unit
Vitesse Aluminum Paddle Shifter


Performance Mods:
Texas Speed 2” Stainless Steel Long Tube Headers with Hi-Flow Cats
Dyno Tunned
AirAid. Cold Air Intake
RX Performance Catch Can w/ Single Check Valve
Borla ATAK Axel Back Exhaust
Eibach Prokit Lowering Springs 1" Front 1.5" Rear
VMAX ported throttle body
Megan Racing Adjustable Coil-overs

Wheels:
22” Niche Essence – M877 two-tone finish with stainless steel lip. 22x10 front and rear with Lexani tires 255/30R22

I like how you did the updates on the hood and rear. Reminds me of the Shelby GT500 with Shelby spaced out like that.

Love the hood also! Very aggressive.
