Jaime068's RJT 2010 Camaro 1LT/RS Build

Before:




Most current photo:


Well it's been a lil over a year since I've owned my Camaro, and I think I've finally got the mods going to create a journal. I didn't know much about cars at first, but it's surprising how much one can learn from owning their first car. Got this Camaro in August 7th, 2010 and was supposed to be my daily driver for work and school. Of course, that all changed once I ran into camaro5...then all the mods began
Here's the very first pic when I brought it home! That day I think I've spent hours sitting outside checking it out hahaha. Just couldn't believe I was owning one of the hottest cars on the road:


About a week later I did my first mod which were tinted windows:





Once I began learning about HP and reading reviews on most of the intakes out, I went with the Injen CAI. Did the install myself so it was a lil nerve wrecking. After putting everything back on, I crossed my fingers and took it for a spin. Felt that "nudge" in hp and the "whistling" was music to my ears.:






Wanted stripes on my car since the beginning but no luck when I went to the dealers :/. Soooooo I ordered my own and did the install with help from some friends. Turned out great! and changed the look of my car:





Ran into an Rx Catch Can, and after reading it's purpose I decided to get one. HAD to get it painted to match! Looks good under the hood:




Wasn't liking that my car was too "quiet", so after months of research, and videos, I went with the MRT v1.0 Axle-Back! Has to be my favorite mod yet! Thought I was driving a whole different car! Not a v8 sound but it sounds GREAT!! Recommend to any v6 owner:







Once I was hearing the sound I wanted out of my car I began to work on it's looks....nothing wrong with adding black right?? So I decided to tint the side markers, reverse lights, and tail lights. Added black vinyl to the bowties and gills. Also, threw in a magnetic trunk blackout to see how it looked:









About a few months ago I still felt the need to add more black to my car. I found a fellow Camaro member selling his GM 21's(which were the only black rims to my taste). After the meet and swap I stopped by my friends graphics shop, messed around his computer and vinyl machine, and these Hash stripes and fuel door cover were made . I was loving the look and now I have my mind set to add more black:

Xmas shopping left me with some pocket change and decided to get myself a gift:



Got them painted a couple days later and then went with the install. Had help from fellow Camaro owners so installation went smooth (Thanks Kev & Darin ):














Recently got my RS badges blacked out as well:





Well that's it for now. Tax returns this wednesday, and then it's online shopping for me!. Till then...

Thanks guys! A member journal was the last thing on my mind, but I got so caught up on mods that I couldn't resist lol. My list went from 2 items to 20. I'm always looking forward to my next mod.

Good looking build bro, this is actually kinda close to what I was planning on doing. RJT with flat black, rallys, fender hashes, GFX, MRT v2, etc, gives me a good idea of what some things are goine to look like that I havent done yet, like the hashes with rallys, looks good!

Keep it up!

While my Razzi Kit is in the body shop I got bored so I went and ordered these GTS smoked quarter window louvers :




.........Will try to get better pics once I have the GFX installed.

Razzi Kit Installed! Love the new look!!! Had to drive home so excuse the tape lol. Didnt want it to fall off on the drive, better to be safe than sorry. Also, had my front piece installed a lil higher than what it was supposed to be(my daily driver and there's a lot of bumpy areas here, didnt want to risk scraping the bumper while pulling out on one of these bumps). Another thing, I didn't go with Razzi's exhaust tips so I'm going to take it to a shop to cut and re-weld my tips in a centered position. Will take more pics tomorrow if the sun is out and shining.

Thanks guys I appreciate the comments .

CamaroOBX, I spent about $700 on the kit and had my local body shop paint and install for another $300 so about $1000...always do your search before u buy anything so u don't miss out on the best deals...haha I kno I want headers but I'm broke do to all my exterior mods...maybe with my summer bonus, who knows
