2010 2ss murder build

So I've been on here since November. I bought my 2ss last year the day before my birthday as a gift to myself. Proud to own my car. I am going to be posting pics as she comes along. The goal is to do what I did to my 2011 f150 before I traded it in. Black out the whole car. I'll be posting pics as I go if I can figure out how. I have attempted to add the pic of the car first night when I bought it. Love it. Changes where made very quickly to the car

Day 3 and the first thing that happened was subs and amp. The trunk piece above that says Camaro was already there. The car came with focals inside so there was no reason to upgrade my speakers.

Thanks man. I'll be posting more pics. Just running around today. My initial though on my car was to do a wrap on the hood roof and trunk in orange so the process changes. Literally a week after the subs I put an x pipe with resonator delete and muffler delete.

Week after the bow ties my buddy over at audio express hooked me up with a new 2014 DVD deck from pioneer before it went to the public out In AZ.

looking good! You can go to "Go advanced" then "manage attachments" and upload more pictures from a computer.

since they are coming out sideways, what you need to do is even if they show right side up on your computer, rotate them one way, then rotate them back, and save the pic. I believe a mac or pc allows you to do this without any kind of software.

Latest on this build. I have noticed my motors lifters are knocking and this has been confirmed but not only myself, my father, our other shop mechanics and the stealership I bought this car from. I am now debating. The car has 32,512 miles on it. Question is should I jump no and do a cam and lifter kit with the ls3 conversion or just have the warranty work done and wait till my warranty expires in case something else major happens? Honest opinions everyone. Would love them.
