Waxy Silver LS

Bought my LS two months ago, this is now my third Camaro. My first mod thus far was replacing the stock plastic steering wheel and shift knob with the upgraded LT leather wheel and knob bought through gmpartshouse.com. I honestly couldn't stand the feel of the stock wheel and am so very happy with the leather. Now I read cntryman77 's post about dying the stitching and liking the idea I did the same but in blue. Marvy Fabric Marker 550-s #75

Here's the before and after pictures.

Just got done putting plastidip on the lower front fascia. Gives it an interesting look, kinda like the ZL1.

Just got home from my trip to BMR. I now own the first V6 camaro with V6 BMR lowering springs . Besides front and rear adjustable sways, sub frame connectors, and a strut tower brace. I'll post pictures soon.
