Nocturne

I have a 2012 1LT Camaro and she is beautiful. She is all black and will soon have dark blue vinyl decals. (most likely hood spears hockey stripes and gills.) I chose to name her nocturne because she is all black and will soon have dark blue detailing just like the night. Colors = black and blue!

For upcoming mods I have already purchased the eagle eyes halo headlights and CAI cold air intake. In the future I plan to install new catch cans eventually, as well as the Borla attack catback and blue ambient interior lighting! I have dreamed of having this car since transformers came out and I can't wait to have fun modding it and driving it around. I will continue to post more pictures as I modify the car.

Here are the second set of stripes I was able to put on. I was slowed down because of the 71% humidity which is very bad conditions to apply vinyl in. However, today was beautiful so I took a little free time after work to put the door panel stripes on.

Also here is a look at the front. Notice I have also applied carbon fiber bow ties to the car because gold just didn't make sense. Also the lights are stock and that leads to my next mod the eagle eyes, which are sitting in my living room waiting to be put on!

Wandered over from the new members section... wanted to say HELLO and THANK YOU for serving!

Nocturne is beautiful, and I dig her name! I also love the color scheme... I am considering black or silver hood spears on my IBM. I'm really looking forward to seeing the future additions to Nocturne... I think they will look sweet.

Thank you! I saw a couple black and silver Camaro's at the dealership I think silver racing stripes look better than the hood spears actually. But you should definitely get a look at both types before you decide. yours is beautiful too. I am glad you understand that dark colors are the way to go!

Agreed... It will be a bit before I add stripes of any sort, simply because I haven't decided what I want yet. I've really fallen for the IBM, so that is part of why I may keep to accents. We'll see.... Research is part of the fun!
