If you're interested, the Junkman, as he's known, has great videos on detailing. Detailing is something I found to be enjoyable when I was young. To do a professional type job is very time consuming and hard work, but you have time, and I assume you can handle the hard work. Actually, we see the hard work you've already put in.

So good luck to you, and enjoy. And, if you're interested, here's a link to the Junkman, who is also a member of Camaro5;

holy crap! I envy both you and your thread. Props to you for doing the mods at such a young age, especially when you can't even drive it yet. I wish more kids were motivated to get involved as you are.

I'm getting my first RS hopefully next week and am looking forward to being able to do the mods you're doing now.

keep up the nice work.

nice! What caught my attention in the first place was I did a couple of forum searches for mods I wanted to do and you've done about 80% of them. I think we might think alike.

Quick question though on one of your mods. The AAC v2.0 Scanner. Does it react to music? Do you know how this works? Does it have to hook to the audio somehow? I have this awesome bass beat I generated (I make music for fun), and think it would look awesome if the sensor faded to the beat. Was wondering how this would work.

Scratch that, I have a bunch of questions for you. Hope you dont mind.

1.) The above question
2.) I'm new to the camaro scene. Is there a good place to get the RS and 2LT badges? The car Im looking at doesnt have any RS badge besides the one on the front grill and back.
3.) Where did you get your engine cover it. Its awesome!
4.) Is that a custom cupholder you have? Was it hard to install?

I plan on first getting lighting mods (foot area, interior lights, the scanner), getting RS badges, Chrome replacements, the small interior/cosmetic stuff, etc. Then definitely a CAI, followed by Exhaust system. Then all else comes after :P

no i do not mine questions



1( I do not know if you can hook up the scaner to the audio system.That would look cool i will post a vid of my 2 scaners
2(You can order the rs badages from the dealer and they go on using 3m tape. The 2LT badage i got from www.emblempros.com
3(Enigne cover i got from my dealer you can get them online for cheap now and it is painted red and i added the camaro rs on the front of it
4(the cup holder is not custom infact i ordered a new billet chrome cup holder that one was just plastic and went on by using 3m tape

Thanks for the questions

lol awesome. i dont know if you caught my other thread on detailing, washing, and waxing. But that was EXACTLY what I was thinking of next. I want to wash and wax it myself, was kind of curious as to what to use and how to do it, etc. Im not sure if the previous owner didn't wax it as much so im sure itll need it.

defintely would like something that would catch eyes, it would help me justify this purchase in my mind ^^

and damn thats a lot of cleaners! I guess I'll have to stock up. I've read that Adams and Zaino are the best and its a topic overly discussed but never answered. Trying to decide which to go with.

I would go with adams they give you a discount and their stuff is great. First i would do a clay bar it makes the paint feel like glass and givs it a nice shine then i would go with a polish (blue bottle in pic) And then a buttery wax. And your camaro will look brand new.
