Goo's SGM Build Thread

Went to the dealership to look at a Camaro and test drove this 2011 2SS/RS:



Ended up buying this 2011 2LT/RS:



Made some changes to it, had fun, made it my own... but always had the SS in the back of my mind...

Then, after a year and a half I found this:



A used 2011 2SS/RS with fewer than 3000 miles on her. So, I traded my IOM in for a SGM

For now I am leaving the drivetrain alone and focusing on the appearance.



Things I've done so far:

Exterior Mods

· ACS TL1 Hood Insert painted Satin Black
· “GREENGO” personalized license plate
· Tint all around
· Forgestar F14's 20X9.5 and 20X10.5
· Michelin Pilot Super Sports, front 275/35 and rear 295/35
· 1LE rear diffuser
· Quad exhaust tips
· Matte black front fascia vinyl with red pin strip
· Matte black mail slot vinyl
· Matte black rear vinyl with bowtie cutout
· Rear bowtie delete
· Satin black rear light bezels
· Removed the stripes
· Hot Wheels Ed. Stripe kit
· ZL1/Hot Wheels Ed. Spoiler
· Muffler delete

Lighting Mods

· Green LED dome light
· Green LED footwell lights

Performance Mods



I have more plans... and more changes to add soon...

Looks good, I have left the drivetrain alone for the most part. Suspension is what I am more interested in but appearance I am working on as well.

It will never end

The satin black was the right choice in my opinion! It looks great on the SGM! When I read your first post, I was thinking man, how did he go to look at a 2SS and end up with a 2LT?! But I quickly saw that you made an upgrade! Good luck on your build. Looking forward to seeing what else you have in store.

Thanks guys.

I know AGM would be easier to paint... but I like the satin.

I'll be glad when I can get it re-painted and checked off my list.

Great choice with the satin. Do you have to do anything different when your cleaning it?

It is clear-coated so I just wash it like the rest of the car... Just don't wax it.

So I think this is the direction I'm headed (plus 1LE Spliter and ZL1 rockers)...

I went ahead and Plasti-diped the wheels to make sure I like them. The photoshop above only gets you so far...

I do like them and have decided to get them powdercoated satin black with the red stripe. But first I am waiting to get me another pair of rears and run square.

I hate the P-zeros but I only have 7k on them... So I am thinking of buying a matching pair of 275s until I need all four at once.

Tomorrow I am getting the tint re-done. A local shop would like to sponsor my car and is willing to redo my tint for free if I let them sticker my back window for awhile.

Nice! I wish I had the opportunity to buy one. Closest on was in Florida. If it were up to me though. I would do a hot wheel replica.
