My SS build thread

Traded in my 2012 LS A6 camaro w/11k miles for a 2SS 2010 camaro SS L99 w/9k miles on 5/21/13







the first day i had the car I had the dealer take off the stock polished aluminum wheels and replace them with my black plasti-diped wheels.


couple days later i took off the license plate bracket. Also blacked all the emblems, taillights and side markers out.





6/23/13 - I removed my rally stripes (wish I never did it) and went all black again




6/30/13 - Took off plasti-dipped wheels because they looked like crap. Put the stock wheels back on



current picture of my car now
