Where did you get the CF magnet blackout? I saw one at SFX performance, but I've read a lot of reviews about them being sketchy and warnings to avoid them... Kinda hoping you got yours somewhere else.

Very nice camaro. I just encountered Mass Effect and it is my favorite game i have played yet. You can beat it in 5 hours like all the other games out there. I have played 1 and 2 and hopfully will be getting 3 soon. I have about 60 hours of gameplay between ME1 and ME2 (I have played ME2 Twice)

Yea, I remember playing the first one. I have been a fan of Bioware ever since.

If your gonna get the third one, be sure to download the free extended ending. Without it, the ending ruins the whole series.

AAC CONCEPT SIDE MIRRORS (BLACK GHOSTED): PURCHASED
ROHANA RC-5 20X10.5 WHEELS ALL AROUND, 295/315 NITTO INVO: PURCHASED
ZL1 ROOF STRIPE: ON CAR
CUSTOM SR1 EMBLEMS BY EMBLEMPROS: ON CAR
BLACK OUT TAIL LIGHT BEZELS: ON CAR
CARBON FIBER PLATE FRAME: ON CAR
SS BREMBO BRAKE CALIPERS/HARDWARE: PURCHASED

First post updated.

Pics of mirrors, the fit is great. Havent wired up the LEDs yet, but the motors inside the mirrors are strong and work great.




Here are the custom SR1 badges from Emblem Pros. The font is game accurate.




You can see how accurate they are. here is an in game photo.


Emblem Pros black onyx CAMARO font.



I also painted my SS calipers today, will post pics when they dry.

BRAKES!!! I finally got around to snapping a few pics of the brakes. Ive had them for a while now, just buying them piece by piece. All I need now are the lines, and a shop to install them. Still have to put them in the oven to cure, 1 hour @ 200 degrees. After that, the decals go on and clear coat. Then they cure again. I got the rear calipers off amazon a few months ago, and the front two came from a friend. All of the parts are brand spanking new, never been on a car. I painted them with VHT caliper spray paint, they should be extremely durable after they have been cured properly.

Yea, Ill get to that eventually lol. The handling is a night and day difference. And she feels a bit faster, probably because of the weight difference in the wheels.
