Talking 2011 RJT 2SS RS Sketch's Car Journal

Just a little thread to help me keep track of my mods. Most mods will be done myself. I will give credit to those that deserve it. I will also post before and after pictures for comparison. Thanks for viewing.
My first car was a 1996 Honda Accord. It was a High School graduation gift from my parents. It served me well until I got into an accident in October of 2010. Since the Accord was my only means of transportation, I needed a new car. I fell in love with the Camaro after seeing it on the Transformers movie so I started looking for one. On November 24, 2010 I picked up my new 2011 RJT 1LT RS from Portor Chevrolet of Newark Delaware. I was so excited to finaly get my Camaro.

Here some first pics


After a few years I decide I wanted a V8 and the hunt began to find a 2011 RJT 2SS RS. After a lot of searching and patience, I finally found one in New Jersey. On March 10th 2014 I traded in my V6 for a 2011 RJT 2SS RS. Since it was the same color, transferring my cosmetic mods to the new Camaro was easy.

V6 used to look Like:
