Started playing with window tinting to change the look initially

50% tint on side windows, 20% on the rear window.

Bought 20% tint from headlight armors for all the lights around. And carbon fiber vinyl for Bowties

Few photos after adding the tint


















Next, i added SLP vinyl for the side gills and added a pin stripe red vinyl for alloys.


















I've seen people painting rear bezels flat black but never thought of plasti dipping and so i painted them with flat black. They turned out to be perfect to me

And i bought a black out vinyl from ebay for trunk lid.
Few photos after the changes

Performance time

Bought Elite Catch Can, MRT v2.0, CAI's cold air intake from Apex Chase

And VMAX ported throttle body from Ivan@southwest speed

Installed MRT V2.0 myself but later decided to get it welded by a professional.

Painted CAI's intake to match the car



Bought a Ported throttle body from Ivan@southwest. I thought, there is no point in painting it will be covered by engine cover, so left it unpainted.



So installed all the parts, and now its time to paint the engine cover. Started a thread asking people to post their engine covers and created mine. Kind of inspired by you all









A camaro5 member iKeablr designed a CAMARO silhouette decal for me. He did a wonderful job creating it. Here are the results of decal and GM strut tower brace install

Plasti Dip project time

So on a weekend i decided to try plasti-dipping something on my car. Went to home depot and bought like 4-5 cans of black.

Started with plasti dipping the alloys. Came out great so went ahead and started plasti dipping hash marks. And finally dipped my front fascia and lower bumper.

So to finish up this project. I painted break calipers red with dupli color and painted CAMARO fender emblems with satin flat back and installed them back on car.

Here are few photos of final result

Awesome looking Camaro. I think it might be the first time I have seen a Camaro with the rally stripes and the side hash marks. I really like the look
