Smile Shan's Build Thread: 2012 Black/Orange 2LT

Purchased my shiny new 2012 right before X-Mas with the intent to customize the heck out of her...



It was a busy weekend... finally added all the lighting mods that have been sitting in my garage... despite missing instructions and some notable differences with the 2012 when compared to the 2010/11 DIY I referenced. Whew!

-Amber Halos (headlights & foglights)
-Illuminated Concept Sidemarkers
-Black rear bow tie with DIC amber illumination
-Afterburner tail light halos

Update: Added some more goodies this week.
-Black front bow tie with amber illumination
-Amber mailslot scanner








I did notice some differences with my 2012 than the directions from AAC and here in the threads. I took photos along the way and will document the differences I found here and/or in the DIY forum.

Added a custom license plate frame, black with inferno orange lettering and logo, in reference to my other ride, which is a sailplane. Sadly,the lighting in my garage is pretty bad, so the colors doesn't show well...

How much of that did you install yourself? I see that just the front Bow says "Self Installed"...

I know what you mean. I love my new 2SS, but I really missed my IOM rally stripes that I had on the V6... After 2 days with the new car, I couldn't take it, and ordered the stripes this morning, lol. Install is day after tomorrow, I can't wait! I almost went with IOM synergy stripes; I like how they look on the hood, but I don't like the rear stripes as much, so I stuck with what I know I like.

Shan,
I am having a pretty tough time finding some camaro upgrades. You have been quite successful maybe you (or someone) could help me. I can't seem to find the front illuminated bowtie like you have installed. Also, for the life of me I can't find this illuminated license plate cover (shown below). I appreciate anyone's help!
