All work has been done by Rick and Kyle at J&R Performance in Arizona.

List of items installed:

RotoFab Cold Air Intake, Radiator Cover, Engine Cover
Hotchkis Track Package - Sways, Springs, Chassis Brace, Strut Bar
Centerforce Clutch

Paint by McLaughlin Auto Arts
Tint by REAL COOL Window Tinting

I would like to thank Rick and Kyle at J&R Performance for getting the Camaro finished in time for SEMA. You guys are the best! Thank you!

To all the vendors who helped me out with this project. THANK YOU!

I would also like to thank Keith @ REAL COOL. Quaity work my friend.

Steve-O at McLaughlin Auto Arts for the KICK-ASS paint job!

To Mike and the rest of the team at Wheel Warehouse. THANK YOU for helping me with everything that has to do with tires and wheels and alignment!

Because of the Paint Scheme that was chosen, everyone that went over to the shop and saw the Camaro being worked on, started calling it "Cpt. 'Merica.

So with that said, Cpt. 'Merica meet Camaro5 Family - Camaro5 Family, meet Cpt. 'Merica!

If you happen to be at SEMA this week, come see it between the North and Central Hall.

I'm not a fan of super hero theme stuff but you made it work nicely on this car. Good job on keeping it classy and tasteful.
