Shadow's Lightning Camaro

Ok. I am going to make an attempt at making one of these car journals. I dont have the money to throw at this thing like some people but I do what i can lol

My name is Brian and I am 22 years old as of April 16th, 2012. I go to The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!). I really enjoy it here in Tuscaloosa and I have met a few good people who also own Camaros.

I got my car back in December of 2011. I drove 11 hours up to Ohio to get it. I got back from Iraq in mid december and i had a good bit saved up so i upgraded from my black (with yellow stripes) v6 2011 to a yellow 2ss/rs 2010.

Thats basically it. I started modding pretty quickly. Small things here and there mostly. But every once in a while ill splurge a bit
Here is a Full Mod List:

Engine/Mechanical
Stainless Works Long Tube Headers
High Flow Catalytic Converters
Stainless Works Cat-Back Exhaust
Rotofab Cold Air Intake

Exterior/Visual
Plasti Dipped Wheels
Plasti Dipped Tail Light Bezels
Plasti Dipped Lower Front Bumper
Street Scene Front Splitter
Blacked Out Tails, Reverses, Fogs, Side Markers
Rear Blackout Panel
Blacked out Mail Slot

Interior/Visual
Dyed All Interior Stitching Yellow

Audio
Kicker 750 Amp 1200 Watts
2x Kicker CVR 12" Subwoofers
Subthump Add Amp Interface
Subthump Perfect Fit Box

Im sure there are more that I am forgetting but ill ad them as i remember. And theres more to come so check back .


So now ill throw in a few pics:

Hey Brian , nice looking car there yellow is my favorite color but my dealer didn't have any ,it's a good thing you started the journal so you can post every single mod big or small as you go,have you considered plastidipping your wheels ? It's a DIY and the cost is minimal and it looks killer on a yellow car. Congrats for the car btw.

Haha aqua, thanks for the kind words. I actually get that a lot though. Most people seem to prefer the first car because of the color combo an all. But only a real enthusiast like those on this forum understand when I say I needed that extra displacement :P. Also, I just couldn't stand how dirty the black stayed.
Pierre, thanks for the kind words. I actually have Plasti dipped the wheels. I'll be able to post a list of mods and pics later this evening. But yeah I recently did the wheels. It's not perfect, but it looks great if you ask me. I'll be able to do a better job next go round. I love Plasti dip though .

More pictures to follow later this evening guys
