Arrow TJK_art Build thread

I've had my car since match of 2010.. started off slow with the mods, but have been getting deeper and deeper into the hole. I figured I would finally make a journal for my sake.

MY car is originally a 1LT, Cyber Gray Metallic, with matte black rally stripes.

- ZL1 side rockers
- ZL1 rear diffuser
- RS OEM halos
- RS tail lights
- RS midnight silver 20" wheels
- RS rear spoiler
- CGM/Matte black front and back bowties
- Matte black tail light bezels
- Matte black Camaro lettering
- Matte black trunk "black out"
- 30% Window Tinting

Interior:

- Leather steering wheel with custom red stitching
- Leather automatic shift knob with red stitching
- Retrofitted leather manual shift boot with red stitching
- Auxiliary gauge pack
- Camaro cargo matt
- Camaro floor matts

Future mods:

Performance:
- BBK long tube Headers
- Sway bars
- Lowering Springs
- Tune

Exterior:
- Black 10 spoke 1LE/ZL1 wheels
- Custom hood (zl1, sinister, mpd1?)
- Tinted side markers, fog lights, reverse lights.

Interior:
- Leather seats with red stitching
- Carbon fiber hydrodipped gauge pack bezel
- LED door sills

Changed my auto shift bezel for a manual leather boot. Also swapped my rubber shift knob for a black leather. Both have red stitching.

In drive:



In park:



This old LED light was used to illuminate the PRNDS bezel options. It has a long enough wire, and is close enough to the cup holder, that I might drill and use it to illuminate one of those aluminum cup holder cover. Or I might make a carbon fiber one.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I installed one of my gifts today



The gauge pack was an easy 30 minute job and looks real nice!
