D.E.A.L.'s Camaro2011

Hi everybody!

My name is Daniel and I am from the northwest of Germany.

I'd like to show you my real LOVE and also how everything started.

But before I get started with my personal story, I'd like to tell you about my modifications I did so far:

Interior:

- Lioyd floor mats with CAMARO SS stitchery
- Cellphone cup holder cover (custom-made by Blacky)
- Aluminum Autobot Logo for the trunk (self-made)
- Leather cover coat for the handbrake (custom-made)
- Footwell LED-RGB
- Door-Kick-Plates (custom-made by a friend)

Exterior:

- Scanner Mail Slot (Knight Lights UK)
- Spacers from H&R (just need them for my original Camaro wheels)
- Bow-tie foiling in red/black (self-made)
- Magnaflow Competion Series, Axle Back Exhaust
- Afterburner SMD LED's (AAC)
- H&R lowering springs (already replaced with...)
- KW V3 coil-over (sport suspension)
- Colored Angel-Eyes, RGB LED, (by Blacky)
- 22", 3-piece, forged Bespoke Wheels, front: 9x22", back: 10,5x22"
- Wheels: Vredestein Ultra Sessanta, front: 265/30R22, back: 295/25R22
- T4 Splitter (ASC), black painted


Like for many of you, my story has also been begun 4 years ago in the movie theater. My eyes popped out like this when I saw the all new Bee after transforming and I just fall completely in love!

Back home, the first thing I did was going on the internet to find as many information about Bee as I could. I found out that GM was planning to sell the car in Europe as well. But at that time, they didn't know when. Maybe in 1, maybe in 2, maybe in 3 years.

That was much to long. Maybe 1-3 years??? No way!
So I decided to import the Bee with the help of an importer for US cars.

And then everything went very fast. I ordered my Bee in the version:
Camaro 2SS/RS shifter in black, with an orange/black trim and a sunroof

Just 6 weeks later my Bee arrived in Germany.

The first changes have been made before I picked him up:

1. Lowering Springs (30mm) from H&R
2. Spacers (25 mm) from H&R

And then, after 7 weeks of waiting, it was the time to pick him up

It was so overwhelming. There he finally was...my Bee...my LOVE

And this is one of the first pic's with my Bee.

Back home with Bee, I installed my red Scanner from KnightLights UK.

I ordered the scanner right after ordering Bee, so the scanner was already waiting for getting installed

This was a really MUST HAVE for me. And this is how it looks like:

Next change: the floor mats.

I ordered these nice floor mats from LIoyds on the internet and replaced the original mats.

I was always wondering where to go with my cellphone. I wanted to place it very close to me, so that I could use my navigation system on it. I talked to a good friend of me (Blacky) and he designed this cool cup cover. For a good look I painted it black black and placed the original SS letters on it.

As a big Transformer-Fan, I wanted to place some Autobot signs on my Bee. I was thinking about ordering some signs on the internet. But then I thought, hey, just do it yourself.
I took some Aluminium panels, cut the edges to the Autobot shape and powder coated the black lines at work by myself. I placed it into the trunk lid on the safety sign.
And this is how it looks like.

I didn't like the golden look of the Bow-tie's and decided to foil them in black and red by myself. I also had to add something on the back side of my license plate. Because of the german license plate shape, you could see the holes for the bigger US license plate. My solution was this black sheet with:

The next little mod was to dress my handbrake.

I always found it a little bit too naked. Therefore I did this leather dress. I really like the new look!

Afterburner Taillights SMD and self made LED Lights for the turn signal.

I loved the look of the AAC Afterburner Taillights and wanted to install them.However, I found the side-marker from ACC a little bit too bright and therefore a friend of mine helped me with producing a darker version of the side marker and turn signal lights. So here are some pics from the modification:

My next little mod was to add a LED RGB light (Footwell) from a normal construction market.

I connected the light with the dome light switch. And this is how it looks like:

Door Kick Plates

I always found the place under the door-speakers very empty.

A friend of mine made this for me by himself. It's a laser cut stainless steel sheet.

I really love the new look.

After adding the lights I thought about changing my lowering springs with a great sport chassis

I checked different kind of chassis on the internet and decided to go with a chassis from KW, Version: V3



And it was a great decision. I am lovin' the drive with it.

I always loved colored angel eyes on a Camaro.

So it was clear that this had to be my next modification.

Here are the new eyes of my Bee

The color is adjustable into every kind of color via remote control.

Thank you Deke736!!! And this is how it went on :-)

After this step I ordered my dream rims in the US


- 22", 3-piece, forged Bespoke Wheels, front: 9x22", back: 10,5x22"
- Wheels: Vredestein Ultra Sessanta, front: 265/30R22, back: 295/25R22


After 6 months of waiting they finally arrived.

I am so happy with my new wheels.
Will post some more pics very soon.
