LET ME INTRODUCE Y'ALL TO HATERADE!!!

I'm finally at the point where I can now introduce to Camaro 5 HATERADE.

Intro: I bought this 2012 Camaro 1LT back in June 2012 as an impulse buy. I was at a Starbucks doing work one sunday afternoon and the Chevy dealer was next door. I was actually looking for a Tahoe but didn't find what I like. However, as I was walking out I looked at this IOM Camaro and said "I want to test drive that!" The rest was history! What made me buy the Camaro was a few days before that I watched TF3 and we were 1 week away from July 4th so I felt very patriotic *I guess*. This was my first American car as I have owned 5 import cars in the past. I had been looking at the Challenger and Mustang (never test drove them)but never really pulled the trigger. Somehow the Camaro had my name on it.

My 2012 Camaro 1LT came stock with 90mi on the Ometer without the RS package but I did have a few other dealer installed options. it wasn't too long until the first mod began which was the blacked out taillight bezel. One thing led to another and how It's HATERADE! Enjoy my journey creating HATERADE.

Special thanks to:

W5GCC -WESTERN WASHINGTON 5TH GEN CAMAR CLUB ( My other family and all the people who have given me ideas and shared their ideas with me to inspire me)
Jason at PHASTEK PERFORMANCE (Springs & complete body kit)
Tire Factory in Kirkland WA (Aaron for working with me on the Falken tires with complete mount and balance and installation)
Smokeys Dyno & Performance ( Peter for working with me with the 20" Giovanna wheels and fast shipping)
VTR Performance (Wayne is a great guy who worked to install my hotchkis springs)
APEX MOTORSPORTS (shipped my ported TB the next day after my purchase.)
I CAN'T FOR GET THE DUDE WHO DROVE HIS BRAND NEW SUBARU THAT INSPIRED THE NAME HATERADE! Taught his ass a lesson!

FUTURE MODS:
Scosche Kit with DVD/Nav
SLP Loudmouth I w/ X-Pipe
Hugger Orange Interior accent

CURRENT MODS:
Vmax Ported TB
Blacked out tail light bezels
black tinted tail lights
LED custom "HATERADE" courtesy lights
OEM RS headlights
Matte Heritage Grill
Street Scene front lip
RK Sport side skirts
Havoc rear diffuser
Street Scene 3pc spoiler
Hotchkis 1" sport springs
red LED interior lighting
KN CAI

ADDED the VMax Ported TB today. Thanks to Apex Motorsports for the quick shipping. Received it less than a week from Kentucky to Seattle!

on a side note - Maybe I should go with this orange wrap! I did a trick on it to change the color and danm! it compliments the black even more!

Received my customized LED courtesy door lights. They come in a set for the driver and passenger side. Thanks to Farthesnorth for directing me to the right people.
