Looking killer dude. I'm not sure about mods for V6 performance but you could ping a couple of the LT owners in our club. There's also a V6 section in Camaro5 if you haven't already visited. See you in Tucson and Go Cats!

Just got the King Tinted!!



Went 10% on driver window, Passenger Window, and Lip on Front Windshield. Then I had 5% Tint put on the small rear side windows and the rear window!

Came out great, dirty at the moment but great.

Love the color choice. I was going to get that if I couldn't find my IBM. Like the tail light bezels a lot. I think I will add that to my build. Any plans to do your side markers? I think it would go along well with your color.

Yes I want to do something to side markers but not sure what. I am 50/50 split decision on the oracle sidemarkers or just getting a side marker tint. Not sure yet. How about you? Any sidemarker plans?

Wow. It has been a while. Sorry for the long pause in activity on this awesome website. School, plus the girlfriend, plus the fraternity and all that Jazz has kept me way too busy. Good to be back though. As for the King, I am not doing anything too special. Adding a few stickers this week. Will post pics later this week.

Anyways, Hope everyone is doing well. Just reached 1700 miles the King.

Here is a picture I took today in Tucson.

Thanks man. Last year I never had issues with the garages. No issues this year so far either. I figure if someone is going to screw around with a nice car, it would be the aston martin or the m3's in my garage. Kid who lives in my apartment drives a grey vantage ha.

Anyways, What are the laws on front license plates? In colorado they are required. I noticed I rarely see them here. Would I be okay taking mine off while in arizona?

Had the car about a year now. Life took some unexpected turns and things like that and the past year has been quite hectic. I plan on really getting this build going starting this month! I am going to post some current pictures when I get back to Tucson. Been almost a month since I have seen my Camaro and can't wait to get back to it!!!
