Talking Racer778 "STEALTH SS" Transformed

UPDATED PICS after May 2012

Hello Everyone, I am finally starting a build thread for my 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS Purchased Dec 31 2009. I have seen alot of beautiful camaro's on this website as well as some very good advice given by some knowledgeable people. Why am I finally starting a build thread, well It's a great way to track what's happening with my car and I would like to send people to my journal so they can see what is happening now and in the future. The car is in the shop being "Transformed" again, so when the car is unveiled with the newest Mods, you can see the difference. I will post pictures and links throughout the week so you can see what the car looked like when I purchased it and all the changes since.

First, a little bit about myself. I am a 20 year Air Force veteran (Avionics Navigation Systems Specialist) currently DAF Civil Service as an Acquistion Program Manager for Remote Piloted Aircraft and live in San Antonio. A shout out to my SATX family, love ya guys, gals and my old friends in California where I purchased my car. I have two sons in the military a son and daughter in college and a younger one (11)who frequents this site to check out all the nice cars. I am a PROUD supporter of "The Wounded Warrior Project" http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/ and it is the only decal I have on my car (except at major shows). Also in San Antonio is the "Center for the Intrepid" http://www.fallenheroesfund.org/Abou...-Intrepid.aspx which is an Amazing facility to help rehabilitate our servicemen and women. I have met some amazing people on this site and looking forward to meeting new people thoughout my travels. Ok enough of that...... on to the mods I'll try to keep everything in the order I purchased.

I'll edit this page as I post pictures and links. Enjoy!

Awesome...

Just found your build thread and it's a good one.

Your Camaro looks great and has the grunt to back it up - very nice !


We'll have to talk sometime - we do a multi-mode USV/UUV with a little UAV thrown in there.

But this is about your thread.
