Performance
1. Oil Catch Can
2. Eibach Lowering Springs
3. CIA (roto fab/injen)
4. Exhaust

Exterior
1. Window tint (done)
2. Bowtie delete (in work)
3. Tail light and side marker tint
4. Engine dress up (eng cover, fuse box lid, etc.)

Update!

Wheels/Tires have been purchased. Got a GREAT deal on some OEM SS rims..Gloss Black PC w/clear. 245 in front 305 outback..1 has about a 5" curb rash, but very small...using gloss black model paint and then doing white vinyl rim stripes on them...they are shipping in the morning.

Buys:
White 20" wheel stripe vinyl
LED license plate lights(match headlights/halos perfect)
LED fog light bulbs (match headlights/halos perfect)
Gloss Black hood spears (temporary until I go with the stripes)
Krylon Fusion White gloss (DIY engine cover and fuse box)

To buy:
Tailight/sidemarker blackout kit
Stainless Onyx CAMARO lettering for rear
Lowering Springs

This is the stuff I'll have done before C5Fest

I'll get pics of the rims/spears/lights installed sometime when it all arrives..

It's fun to have a plan, and then go a different route...of course $$ makes a big factor but I'm happy so far!

Cool. Can't wait to see the fog lights.

We have the same keychain too. Not the "insert" but "remove" before flight.

UPDATE!!

Fed ex damaged my rims..and it's been 8 days, so I had them buffed and put the viynl strips on, I cant afford to wait or them. My car has sat on jackstands a week while waiting. So, I fixed em and etc. I called and told them what I was doing, and they said as long as I have damage pics and the seller has before pics and I keep the damaged packaging..good to go.

So, Wheels and LED fogs installed! Oh, and my camaro5 decal! lol
