BigWayne's 2011 Camaro

Well, I own a 2011 Camaro LS which I bought in Dec 2010. It's inferno orange and since I've gotten it I've put in a new CAI, new exhaust, blacked out all the lights, and installed the steering wheel radio controls. I'm planning on doing T2 ports and possibly a 2 tone paintjob with black on top and orange on the bottom depending on the cost. Trying to decide if it will be cheaper for me to just buy a black hood/trunk lid from a junkyard and just paint the roof and pillars.

Anyway, I wasn't going to make one of these but the more I look at other member's journals the more jealous I get of their mods and also I just want to keep a small journal type thing on all the mods I'm doing. I don't have very many pictures but I will def be getting more up soon.

MODs:
- all around tint 35% (windows AND all lights ex. headlights, taillights etc.)
- CAI K & N Typhoon
- MRT 1.0 exhaust
- steering wheel radio controls

Coming Soon:
- T2 ports
- 2 tone paint job
- new rims
- interior inferno orange panels and ABL
- all new lighting (HID conversion, footwell, AAC scanner)

These first pics are from when I picked my car up. For some reason I can't find any pics of the CAI I did







Last one showing the 35% tint on the windows. I probably could have gone down to possibly 30-25% but I'm happy with 35%. Its not too dark and not too light. Also don't worry, that dealer sticker is no longer on my car.


I will post up videos as well once I edit them down a bit. I have some comparing my exhaust. Thanks for taking the time to look at this guys.

BigWayne, looking good bro. It takes a lot of time, and a lot of money. Can't wait to see the vids.

Bigwayne3000...If you do a little at a time as you can pay for, it will mean so much more in the end. You have a great car to start with. Keep us posted...

A little mod here, there, they add up. I'm not rich, but when I can, I do. You've got a great project going there, just do what you can when you can & enjoy!
