Arrow 2010 PROJECT CAMARO (Pic Heavy) [COTW 8/3/15]

I acquired my 2010 Camaro SS L99 about a year ago. I planned on a few mods at the time and then became obsessed with the car like many others. This journal will chronicle the obsession. As I started getting into the project deaper, I wanted performance and style which doesn't always go hand in hand with these projects. I'm going to break this down by performance and cosmetic. The goal was to have a Camaro that was faster than snot and looked even faster. I wanted the original body style, because it was my personal opinion it was a little bolder (muscle car look). I did all the work/wrenching including some of the painting, some parts were easier to have painted.

The tune was done by Cunningham Motorsport's. The rear end was replaced with 3.91 GM gears. BMR Products , Chassis Brace, Bushings, Tunnel Brace, Trailing Arms were also added.

I appreciate the COTW recondition. Camaro 5 has been my inspiration for most if not all of the mods. Thanks again..

Roughly 500 at the wheels. I'm somewhat limited since I have to deal with the communist state of California. Looking to pulley down and change the fuel system soon.. The 3.91 rear end makes the car a beast and a little hard to Hook at times. Still running street tires...

Damn, the pictures aren't showing for me, because of work's filters. I just saw the link on the front page for the Camaro of the week. Love the look and can't wait to see more and bigger pictures of this evening.

Red and Black is where it's at!
