The Beginning of a Long Road...

Alright guys here it goes...

I started off with a 2010 mustang 4.0 on December 31st of 2009. The car had around 2 thousand dollars worth of mods, a picture is below and I won't get too much into it.



http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-...deer-pics.html

To start off, I got a Summit White 2012 Camaro 1LS in May of 2012. I recieved a trade in price of $16,500 for the Mustang which I paid brand new for $18,700 (not bad!). The final price was approximately $24,000 and the dealership got a full audio swap for me (12" Kicker Subwoofer and Kicker Amplifier) from the Mustang to the Camaro.

Stock Pictures:















There are a ton of mods I will be getting down the road

alright im starting to step it up a little...

I'm trying to get a good summer job to either get ark n2 catbacks, hurst short throw shifter, or some nice bose speakers inside the car.

I got my windows tinted by sunstoppers @ 18% and i've been playing around with plastidip. I also bracketed down my sub with some wood underneath the carpet so it doesn't move.

Just some small things for now. Hurst Short Throw Shifter is next.
Dying the stitching red takes so long

Got most of what I want done with my interior.

I'll most likely get my interior panels covered or painted a gloss black. Also, thinking about eventually trading out this steering wheel for the 2010 model.
Next up will be a Hurst Short Throw Shifter, probable for a red knob to match the interior, not sure yet.

Thanks! Well I really did love it, but basically i had the choice to upgrade to a more powerful v6 or get a motorcycle. Since, I'm in college I thought the bike could wait a few years. Oh and that nice 113 hp upgrade really caught my eye!

Yeah thats right! I would have kept it if it had the power this lfx has. I miss it time and again, but no regrets!

What'd you use to do the interior? It looks great!

Thanks! I used a red vinyl off of ebay, it fit into the doors, on the dash, and around some other spots!

Ah, man, I love your car! My choice was white or black LS, and I said I would always get a white car, but went with black this time. Keep up the great work...seems like white and black Camaro's are the only ones that can pull off that black plasti dip around the caps...looks much better than keeping them silver.
