My fav "cheap" appearance mod was plasti dipping the taillight bezels. Tint and painting calipers were good bang-for-your-buck

Here is this one so you can see the Hood (RK Sport), heritage Grille, AAC Sidemarkers and the spoiler..If you want more of the spoiler just look up MPD1 Spoiler thru google or search on here.. It was like 400 shipped and it came painted.

Make your bow ties match your paint color, or contrast, but get rid of the yellow chevy bow ties. Yuck. I think big worm graphics sells these stick ons pretty cheap. I have an SS, so I ditched the bow ties for SS emblems

I ditched the bowties for a bowtie delete on the front, and "CAMARO" lettering across the back between the tail lights. Then I added "LS" model emblems to the proper locations on the right grill and right deck lid. That stopped all the "Which one do you have?" questions since the LS comes with no trim model designation of any kind. Also have a flameball shift knob. Those are pretty cool if you're getting a manual transmission.

Not so good at this, but I put SS emblems on the side under the Camaro emblem... $40. Oh yeah and I love the black gills. $45

My under $100 mod that makes the biggest impact on the appearance is the SLP fade to black gill decals ($60). From a distance they make the rear quarter panels look like they have functional vents. Adding these was one of the first mods I did on my ZL1.

I think the "phantom" grill makes it look a lot better

You asked for $5 - 100 - amazing how many people blow right by that:

1. gill vinyl strips
2. rustoluem the brake calipers in black or red
3. plastidip the rear tail light bezels
4. vinyl applique over the bowtie in your favorite color
5. LED bulbs in the fogs
6. $15 wire kit to run fogs during night
7. $18 bottle of Blackfire Crystal seal to seal thea paint
8. debadge...bottle of goo-gone and dental floss
9. Brake caliper paint and rustoleum clear coat - paint your engine and fuse covers
