Starsky Build Thread!

Never thought I would be doing a build thread for my Camaro. I bought Starsky in January 3, 2012. I drove a 2008 Silverado that was pretty badass.


Now I have moved on to the car scene! Still a Chevrolet guy, got the itch and wanted a car and bought a 2012 SIM.
I bought her when I was 20 years old. This is a picture from the night I picked her up!


This is the first trip I took Starsky up Glendora Mtn Road


Just picked Starsky up from Marks Audio Video January 11, 2013


Was going to get the JL-Audio Stealthbox but they were not in the office so my friend at MAV (Marks Audio Video) decided to have his guys build me a custom box! Turned out amazing!


We also put the newest Alpine head unit INE-W927HD, as well as the Scosche Dash Kit.


No more girlfriend nagging me tonight, January 15,2013, so I thought I would post some more pictures of Starsky's progression...
Added Flat Black CAMARO badges


Painted Bow tie by Gary's Custom


Love this side/front picture showing the LED Side markers,
LED Foglight's and LED Blinkers


More LED love! Tinted LED reverse, Rapid Fire Sequential LED Taillight's and LED license plate lights.

Painted taillight bezels with Rapid Fire LED's off




AS OF NOW THOSE ARE ALL OF THE PICTURES I HAVE
ON MY COMPUTER. I WILL UPLOAD MORE TONIGHT
WHEN THE GIRLFRIEND IS NOT HERE NAGGING ME TO
GET OFF C5! SURE YOU ALL UNDERSTAND!

Ya this guy was trying to get me to buy the Metra kit, it just looks like such less quality. The Scosche kit looks factory, like Chevy should have made the car with this kit! I love it......I can not give enough credit to my boys at Marks Audio Video, Irwindale California!

So I have not done any modding to my baby for a few months, basically all summer. I am now feeling the urge to do something that will make me fall back into love with Starsky! I love her, but you all know the feeling you get once you do something new to your car! Every time you get into it you look at it or listen for it more and more! Well I want that feeling again!! So if anyone wants to share what I should do next, please post your suggestions!!
