Arrow A-DILLA's Summit White ZLS [COTW 9/22/14]

Hey guys so My name is A-DILLA and i decided that i will start my build..

So in December of 2012 is when i bought my 2013 Camaro 2LS and believe me i was the most excited person that walked planet earth that day! I told my wife to go ahead and drive WHTNGHT home so i can see what it looks like while driving at night.. And that's when the name WHTNGHT (which stands for WhiteKnight) was born. I have come a very longs ways being that i told the dealership i wanted a bone stock 2LS so i can save on the same OEM parts and also wanted to make it my own..

The reason why i called it ZLS was due to the fact that my vision was take the ZL1 body and combine it with 2LS and call it ZLS.. what sold me on the name ZLS was that i knew nobody else drove that and also i thought of it on my very own and ialso loved Transformers and the BummbleBee edition camaro so BAM! Project Tansformers ZLS! Transformers and ZLS combined and now they say i drive Bummblebee on Steroids!

Awesome looking car, I drive the same base model and I'm thinking of making some similar modifications so it's awesome to get to see it.

And now we move to the interior folks, replaced my factory plastic trim panels and door panels with ABL door panels and painted dash trim kit. Plus added 4 pack guages and painted them white also.. purchased the 2LT leather steering wheel with red stitching and painted it white.

When I was doing some research on hood inserts, i came across the ACS T10 hood insert with the see thru glass. Looks just like ZR1 hood insert so i wanted to be different and went that route.

Hey thx man, you have a beauty.. the trick to getting the lines sharp is wide blue tape not the thinner tape, u find it to be more sticky to the car and thick spray of plastic dip. When i did the spears I used the can but when I did the black spray on the hood to give a ZL1 type feel of just a black covered area I used the spray gun I bought from home depot.
