So Cal Camaro's 1LE - Hoping to compete in 2013 Optima Invitational

With some sadness I traded in my 2010 White Camaro 1SS

For my new 2013 AGM 1SS/RS/1LE (The Starting Point)

Still working on all the details of future mods, but will be adding new Forgeline Wheels 20", current wheels are sold.
Hood wrap will be removed over Thanksgiving weekend and will post changes afterward...

Instead of shopping today, I swapped out my wheels for the Silver Forgeline's and Nitto NT-05's I had waiting....also decided to pull the black vinyl hood wrap off...here are a few pictures I uploaded, will take some better shots of the wheels in better light, sun was washing them out in pictures I took today. My buddy got the hood wrap off in about 5 minutes....

yeah, I really didn't like the wheels or the hood wrap, just wanted the transmission, gearing and other suspension upgrades the 1LE came with. Besides, I made on of our Race Team members really happy selling the wheels to him...

Lucky team member getting your wheels. Love your sleeper look. People with this it's just another Camaro SS, until they look at your calipers.

So, I have put together a pile of parts after messaging back and forth with Pete at Pedder's and reading his threads on the L28, so decided time to get some on the Camaro....to get this accomplished, I headed to Haddad Motorsports for Mike and the guys to put some Pedder's red under my 1LE....

They added Pedder's heavy duty subframe bushings, radius bushings and Pedders sway bars, including the ZL1 bar in the rear.

I also had a CTSV front brake upgrade with ZL1 rotors from JDP Motorsports, because I like to complete package they had....

Here are some pictures Haddad took while installation was taking place...

I want to Thank Pete for the guidance of parts to get and helping out with them and very big thanks to the guys at Haddad....in the short time I have been driving today, the Camaro suspension is even more awesome now, can't wait to track it against some friends....
