Talking Swiss - Iced Bee

Hi there

Thought I start a build thread in here as well.
I am from Switzerland and bought my Camaro April last year. Since then I did some mods, sadly due to the strict laws here everything which makes fun is forbidden or just too expensive. (increase power or make it loud)


OEM Configuration
- 2013 "EU Camaro" which is a fully equipped SS with RS package afaik
- Summit White
- Manual Trans
- No Sunroof



Mods List


Suspension
- Bilstein B16 (lowered around 30-35mm)

Sound
- GMPP off-road axle back

Engine Bay
- Vmax ported throttle body
- Volant CAI
- Elite Catch Can
- tune by Ted Jannetty
- separate clutch fluid reservoir
- lingenfelter clutch return spring
- painted engine and fuse box cover (white)

Wheels
- Rohana RC22 (9x20 offset 20 and 10x20 offset 25 with original tire size)

Brakes
- HAWK Performance Ceramic pads
- Red painted calipers

Powertrain
- 1LE differential (complete swap)

Interior
- Lloyd floor mats
- weathertech cargo mat
- 1LE shifter
- 1LE steering wheel
- LEDs (instead of the bulbs)

Exterior
- ZL1 style rear spoiler
- Transformers style stripes
- Bowtie delete
- fascia blackout with plastidip


Last week a friend of mine did some very awesome pictures:

thanks

The gmpp (which is at the end a Borla S-Type) axle back is perfect for me. It's deep and growling and at high rpms it's screaming quite nice.
It could be louder of course
I would like to have some high flow cats but the risk is too high here to get fined....
high flow cats could result in a 1000$ fine and drivers license revocation for 1-3 months in the worst case

these are the default lights on the EU model. At least one advantage we have over here

some updates:

I've wrapped some interior parts with 3M carbon wrap. Was not that hard except the dash bezel.










I also ordered the Z28 dash insert which is alcantara. I bought some original alcantara and wrapped the center console in addition. Love the mixture between alcantara and carbon.
I also wrapped the a-pillars just with alcantara, no stitching.

Came out nice I think especially for the first time. I even did the stitching by myself


I also created a bottle holder cover. Just cut a piece of plastic to fit in and added alcantara on the top. That piece is missing on the pictures











Only thing left ist the speedo bezel... I am not sure what to do. Wrapping is not possible and that water transfer stuff will look quite different then the wrapped pieces.
Other option would be to paint it white like the car but I am not sure how good this will look if the bezel is the only white piece in the interior

I did the same in my RS, that speedo bezel was impossible to wrap. I painted it matte black, here is how it turned out.
