Northwest 2014 Ash RS

So I had a 2005 STI before I joined the Camaro family. Loved the car, was a blast to drive. Unfortunately everything started to go out all at once and apparently wasn't as well taken care of as I was lead to believe, thus I decided it was time to have a new car. That way I knew for sure it was well taken care of and was truly mine. I know, it's a downgrade in the performance department, but with my commute and all I never got to drive it the way it was meant to. So I got the Camaro and am totally in love with it, amazingly enjoyable car to drive. I haven't done a whole lot, and can probably never compare to a lot of the cars on here, but Im slowly making it mine and hope some of you like what I've done...

Exterior:
Debadged the fender camaros and rear chevy symbol
Headlight armor side marker tint
Blacked out front chevy symbol
FormulaOne Ceramic tint all around
Black plastidip on the wheels and spoiler
Full set of black Gorilla locking lugs
Multi color grille LED
Blacked out RS chrome strip
DIY matte black vinyl stripes
Matching vinyl wrapped ZL1 rockers
Custom made red carbon fiber RS badges by Emblempros

Interior:
Custom red script Camaro 4pc Lloyds floor mats
Custom Speed Dawg shift knob to match mats (xmas present from fiance!)
Custom embroidered RS headrests
Leather console lid/e-brake boot
Emblempros RS dash badge
Homemade door kick plates
Subthump stealth 12" box and amp rack
Homemade color shifting footwell lights (DIY thread to follow)
Custom painted interior trim
Blacked out visors

Engine bay/performance:
Elite catch can
CAI cold air intake
MRT v2 axelbacks
Painted fuse box, intake lid, and engine cover
Stainless RS engine cover badge

Future Mods:
Magnaflow xpipe (possibly)
Custom LFX cowl emblems (possibly)
Upper and lower grille
Eliminator bracket
Front splitter

Let me know what you guys think!

Headrests and floor mats are awesome. I like the idea of the skyline of Seattle!!

Nice touches all 'round...

Did an LED swap, dome/trunk/license. Red for dome and trunk. Also tied in a couple LED strips behind the grille with the multi color I have in my footwells. I'll take a picture and video of that tonight.

Helped a buddy dip the wheels on his truck. Decided to do my spoiler while we were at it. I think it looks pretty good actually.

Here's a better look at the interior and grille LEDs. They run on the same controller and can be any color I want. Including different modes, like 3 speed modes of color spectrum fade, flashing, and music response flashing. I'll upload videos of them in action shortly.

Hey nice car man, I'm around the Seattle area also. Dope head rests!

Where did you get your footwell and grill lights from and are they all wired up together or something? Nice work so far

It's actually a home accent kit I ran across at Lowe's one day. It looked cool because the led strips are protected in tubes which were ideal for the grille lights exposed to the elements. It's also modular so I was able to order longer strip with longer cords. I just cut the wall wart and rewired it the same as other diy footwell lights people have done. I double sided the controller inside the glove box next to my amp knob. I put two inside and two in the grille. And still have slots for two more strips if I find another place I want some lights

Best part of leaving work, aside from leaving work, is seeing a camaro waiting for you...

Idle hands this weekend makes for camaro work... painted these, love the dash. Console is ok for now, until it grows on me or I think of something better. Plan on doing the center vent trim and the steering wheel but those are more involved to get to so those will have to wait until I have more time.
Also ordered some custom RS badges from emblempros to replace the front and rear ones. Will post pics when they arrive

Took apart my interior the rest of the way and painted things up... wasn't brave enough to attempt the stereo though....
Also blacked out the rs chrome strip on the front. All in all everything turned out pretty good.

Just ordered a roll of vinyl to do some stripe experimenting, we'll see how that goes.
Also in contact with the fine folks at Rogers about getting some ZL1 rockers

Got my vinyl in. Turned out pretty good I must say for a first attempt at wrapping vinyl. The back window edge got a little tweaked, I'll have to figure someway to make that look a little better. Tucked all the seams.
Thinking about adding some red somehow. We'll see what I can come up with...

Got some led tube and put it around the shift boot under the trim. Looks pretty dang good I must say.
Also finally got my custom RS emblems from Emblempros. The front one was starting to chip so they need to go. Used the one from the back and put it on my dash. Was looking a little too black over there, needed some color. Super happy with the new emblems.

It's a 36" fiber optic type deal I got from Pep Boys. Wired it to my lighter. If you take the trim off around the shifter it's pretty obvious where you put it. I just wrapped it around from 1oclock, around once and ending at 11. Pretty easy.
