Congrats.

Two questions. Does that Scott guy you mentioned do the carbon fiber himself? I am looking for a place that does CF skinning. Also what brand is your rear window spoiler?

Congrats on the COTW. Super nice cars. love the color combo with matte balck, gloss on the wheels and a little carbon fiber. Just enough mix without going over board. Very Clean!!!!!! I would love to hear a soundbite when you get it supercharged.

Hello, my name is Eric. My Camaro story began only as a pipe dream. I recently bought what I thought would be my solid car for a while. It was a 2009 Toyota Corolla XRS. My family only values Japanese cars, you see. So… as far as I was concerned, Hondas or Toyotas were all I should get. Around the same time, my brother (Marc) purchased a Honda Civic. It was my brother who persuaded me to get a Camaro with him because if he did it alone, my parents would definitely have a cow. He sold the idea to me and kept reminding me that we should have hot cars while we’re still young. Like anyone who fantasizes about buying a car they probably won’t get, we built what we would want online obsessing over it.

One weekend, we started to entertain the notion this could happen. So, we started visiting dealerships to get an idea of what we can do realistically. A lot of places we visited wanted to charge us mark-up to make a profitable sale. We finally went to one that wouldn’t as long as we order it directly from the factory. So, that’s what we did. And for the next few weeks, we tracked our future cars from factory to train to truck for what seemed like many months.

When we picked up our cars, they were right out in-front in a perfect row. I was really nervous driving it home. It was wider than what I was used to, not to mention all the attention it was getting as I drove. You could just feel the admiration from passer-byers as you drive!

I'll follow up with a PM and look into it for you. It was a diamond in the rough!

The hood fits like a glove! Seibon did a good job. The rear spoiler is from 3d Carbon. A modestly aggressive look!

Scott knows a great company that does them. I'll ask him and follow-up with you via PM. I'll also include the information regarding the window spoiler, as it was custom fabricated in a body-shop.

The wheels were designed and custom fabricated at Hess Motorsports by 3D scanning a real Corvette ZR1 rim before it was converted to a 3-piece forged rim with the offsets and backspacing to work on a Camaro.

Thanks. That is an APR Performance front-splitter. It makes the car really low, but you get use to it and it changes the look dramatically.
