These are some shots of when i got her home for the first time and got a good look at her. I drove a 98 Honda Civic for 5 years prior to owning my 2011 Camaro. This was my first real car so I was pretty damn excited and grateful to have such an amazing and beautiful vehicle.
At the time I was new with the forum and had no intentions of wanting to change anything about my camaro since I thought it was awesome of a car already... why change anything about it?.. Only a matter of time before it hits you.. THE MOD BUG

After about a years time I did very little modding to it. I wasnt sure what direction to go in with so many options available I decided to just sit back and enjoy the ride and see what other were doing to their camaros and maybe get an idea of what to go with.

Fall shots in 2011, Added bowtie black outs, Flat black matte gill vinyl to match the flat matte rally stripes, and acrylic covers on tail lights and side markers from RPI Designs. I was pretty much satisfied with this look.

Also went to a local sign shop that creates decals and had them create a decal for my rear windshield of the deathbat from my favorite band Avenged Sevenfold

Prepping for painting the engine cover, a week later I painted the fuse box the same color.

Saw a few members on here plasti-dipping the chrome tail light bezels and "camaro" emblem on the fenders and decided to give that a go. I really liked how it turned out

Ended up redoing this emblems since i had minor runs in the plasti dip or not enough. This was easy enough to not worry about

I had RPI Design acrylic tint covers but got pulled over because they were "too dark" So these are the 12% Gun Smoke film tints from BigWorm Graphix Might go a bit darker down the road since the film is alot thinner than the covers I had prior to this. This suits me for now though I also have the rear trunk lid black out vinyl. Will most likely be switching this from flat matte black to gloss black. you can tell its vinyl but i think glossy black will have a better effect.

I liked the black bowtie vinyl that I had covering the gold but was bored of it. SSTG had some spare black carbon fiber and mailed me a few pieces

Looks a lot better..
Before, flat black

So after going through some of the DIY mod threads I came across the DIY dyed stitching. Gave it some thought and figured it would be nice to have a accent color on the inside. Ordered a Decoart pen from Hobby Lobby and dyed the stitching red
