Blake's 2011 RS

I bought this car used and it was completely stock.

My friend had just bought a brand new 2013 ZL1 and I was crazy about the aggressive look of that camaro. So the first thing I did was install the Injen CAI.

I was still on the stock wheels so I decided to plastic-dip them black because I wasn't crazy about chrome.

The next thing I knew that I had to do was close up the wheel gap some so I ordered a set of BMR 1.25" lowering springs, and a set of ZL1 gloss black 10-spoke wheels with a more aggressive width (20x10 and 20x11) from phastek performance.

At this point I was pretty happy with the exterior of the car so I moved to the interior. One of the biggest flaws in my opinion is the stock shift knob so I ordered a suede shift knob and boot from Gen5diy, and that was a super easy and quick install. At this point I was thinking about auto crossing so I went back to Phastek Performance and ordered a Cipher Auto harness bar and found some green 4 point cam-lock harnesses.

Before my first autocross event, I had my mufflers taken off and put some 3.5" quad-tips on with a new quad-tipped diffuser as well. After a while one of my taillights had gone out so when I was changing the bulb it was a perfect excuse to paint the taillight bezels matte black. I also for the time being had plastic-dipped the Oem spoiler matte black. A year went by without any mods. Around August 2015 I started to want to change everything up again so I ordered a Zl1 grille, and a ZL1 spoiler. While installing the grille I thought it was the perfect time to wrap my front bowtie in carbon fiber! I also had the spoiler painted gloss metallic black.

For this Christmas my girlfriend surprised me with getting me a Matte black 'Lowered Lifestyle' window banner.

Everything was going great and than all of a sudden I lost all of the compression in 6th cylinder.

Thank God I was still under warranty! so after being amaro-less for about two weeks I finally got the call that it had a brand new 0 mile LLT engine in it! Now that I have a brand new engine I have decided that it was time to go all out with my build and to do something that was unique so I ordered a full matte black vinyl from Car Wrap Supplier, Side rockers and winglets from ACS, a ZL1 front bumper from Phastek Performance, and interior footwell lighting from Phastek as well. At this point right now I am in the middle of installing all of these things as well as wrapping the interior parts so as soon as I am done I will be updating this journal with pictures of everything!
