AREA 51 Build Journal

Hey everybody. Let me introduce you to my new love. Her name is A51. (I was always curious about secret us military base - area 51. Not that long ago I read Annie Jacobsen's book - Area 51, which was the best book I've ever read. So that's how my Camaro got her name.) She was born in May 2011 in Oshawa, Canada. I met her on 11/23/12 in Janesville, Wisconsin. It was love from the first sight. From the first time I saw her she charmed my heart. How can you not fall in love with such beauty! I took her home on 11/28/12. From that moment her steel heart and my human heart beat as one...

Update 7/27/2013
When I bought my camaro I knew that I can find its build date on the edge of the drivers door. When you open the door there is a sticker with build month and year. And just recently I find out that there is another sticker under the hood on the left/passengers side in front of the engine on the frame, which has not only month and year, but also the day camaro was build. So my A51 has officially her birthday on 5/18/2013

Mods:
1. Cargo net
2. TL1 hood insert (AGM color)
3. ZL1 style roof, trunk & spoiler stripes (black matte)
4. Rear quarter window louver decals (black matte)
5. Rear quarter panel side vent decals (faded black color)
6. Wheel canter cap insert decals (IOM color)---------removed with stock wheels
7. Custom painted front and rear bowties (IOM/AGM colors)
8. IVS Havoc rear spoiler (AGM color)
9. Custom made A51 emblems for trunk, grille and hood
10. ZL1 grille
11. Showstoppers LED side markers
12. Custom painted tail lights bezel (black matte color)
13. CAI inc cold air intake (AGM color with IOM accents)
14. Rear bumper blackout (black matte)
15. Gibson performance axle-back exhaust
16. Stillen/Street scene side skirts (IOM color)
17. Stillen/Street scene front splitter (AGM color)
18. License plate frame. (AGM color)
19. VMax ported throttle body
20. Lloyds floor mats
21. Forgestar cf5 wheels (20x9.5 and 20x10.5)
22. Pfadt 1.25 lowering springs
23. Pfadt sway bars
24. R1 Concepts drilled & slotted brake rotors
25. Hawk ceramic brake pads
26. Illuminated door sills

sweet car, i wish i wouldve gotten a IOM also, or the RJT. I was stupid for going with white. I gotta say though, I'm not the biggest fan of the painted rims, I got the bare aluminum version of the same wheels. sure the brush strokes arent uniform at all, but im a bare metal kinda guy.

too bad ou dont have the RS package either, thats another thing i wish i had. just more room for improvement huh?

thanks man,
talking about white camaro, take a look at this thread : http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175553
in my opinion this guy -ZoMBiE_KMF - has the best looking white v6 in this forum. it doesn't matter what color is your car, you can make it look bad ass.
i didn't buy RS package on purpose. i knew that i'm gonna get different spoiler and different rims, so i chose non-RS model. as you say - more room for improvement.
talking about wheels, i have stock 19' wheels. they are not painted. maybe it looks different in the photos

P.S. english is my second language. i'm originally from europe, so apologies if i make some mistakes

P.P.S. upgrades coming soon

btw, Meguiar's liquid wax to the front bumper and hood, works quickly and fast. its good affordable maintenance protection against the elements. it comes with an applicator pad, and you just need to pick up 2 plush microfiber wipes.

no, i didn't black out bowties but i was thinking about that. my first upgrade to the car was cargo net for the trunk. seriously
but we are here not to talk about cargo nets, right?

so here are some photos of my real first upgrade:
thank you ACS Composite for awesome TL1 hood insert and
thank you All Auto Body inc (elk grove village, il) for amazing paint job and installation
the insert color is AGM
