2013 1LS IOM Camaro (Asuka)

This Thread is dedicated to my 2013 1LS IOM Camaro. I bought her brand new in July of 2013. I have been lurking on the site since I bought her and finally decided to say hello. HELLO! I have done a few mods to my Camaro already (as listed below) but do plan to do more in the future. Now as for my Camaro she has had a few names so far, all of which my girlfriend gave, they were Nemo (from Finding nemo) and Charmder (my car is not a Poke'mon), but to be honest I was never sold on the names any way as the car's personality didn't match any of those characters. After driving her for a few weeks her personality shown through in a big way and that is why her name is now and forever will be Asuka. Asuka is my favorite Character from one of my favorite shows (Neon Genesis Evangelion). In the show she is a very feisty girl who would sooner punch you in the face rather than let you hold her hand, but then in the middle of the night she would still want you to hold her until morning came, though she would expect you not to say anything about it afterward. I can't really explain why this character fits my car so well but when I thought about it I couldn't argue with myself... I should also mention it might have had something to do with the characters orange/red hair and blue eyes, and that she pilots a giant red and orange robot, all while in a form fitting suit that is red with black lines and a touch of green and orange.

I don't have time at the moment to do a full run down of the car with pictures and other details of my mod progress, so for the time being here is a list of what I have done plus one picture to satisfy:

Those are the two things I love most in my life.

First thing I tested with the dye

Here are some pictures of my plasti dip test... My edges need some help but I ran out of time over the weekend to fix them... guess I know what I am doing next weekend.

And finally some photos from my failed plasti dip hood spears....
