Cam99's build thread

After reading a bunch of build threads here, decided to start one. It's really fun watching people make their cars the way they want them. Anyway I'm a muscle car guy to the core and have had many of them from 'cuda's and challengers to too many mustangs, mach's, and cobra's to list. I really liked the camaro's since they came out, but never made an effort to buy one. Just always had some other iron in the fire. Well the dealer I enjoy dealing with had one traded in and I figured I will at least drive it since I haven't ever yet. Was very impressed with the car and loved the orange interior, so we made a deal. Now this may not be the popular opinion, but the car had the gfx package and I really didn't care for it. I like the cleaner simpler look of the stock pieces, so I knew they would be going after I brought it home. Also had the black gm 21's and I liked them, but not a huge fan of black wheels on a black car. Again I think it's my old school mentality, but I like some contrast. So after I brought it home, the changes begin. First pic I have of it in the garage just as I got it.

so I've spent the last three weekends meeting up with some great members here in pa and ohio selling and trading away the gfx pieces and 21's. Now i know what some people will say "now it just looks like a stock camaro", but thats how i like it to look. I think chevrolet got it right, so sue me! lol! The important other part is now that free's up some guilt free mod money. and it shall be

Added a couple more things. I bought the pedals because they had orange accents, but i'm not sure if I like them. A bit ricey. Also added footwell lighting tied into the abl circuit so it theater dims and all. Love it

There are a few times a year it is very clean....this is not one of them. On the plus side it is heated and has a bathroom, so you can work like a madman in it without leaving! There is cable run to it, but I don't dare hook up a TV, that might kill productivity

I'd love to, but I have no idea how to post video. I can barely figure out how to post pictures! It's getting tuned on friday and should have some numbers to post. I'll take some video on my droid in case I can convince some 12 year old to post it for me

There is a thought!! I put one video of Jackson's Puppy Dog on YouTube. Might want to check it out on YouTube...I am going to get a video of the 68 and 2010's exhaust. Once you get started on YouTube, it gets real easy. I think there is a thread somewhere that gives a blow by blow on how to do it....might do a search on embedded video.....
