Thanks man. I can't wait...816 sq/ft two car garage with a fully outfitted work shop and custom flooring. I'll probably get a custom logo also in the middle with a bowtie or something
Might look something like this..

Thanks for the compliments!

I don't have any daytime pics but here are some with the new 6000K HIDs. They match the plasma LEDs from AAC perfectly.

wow, cool build thread. Awesome job on the interior lighting.

Even cooler you get to rock this Camaro in the Cayman Islands.

I really wish I could find a job down there!
I'd just box up my Camaro and go. I'm getting back to somewhere tropical at some point...just need to start looking for something

22" F14's

Jon at BestWheelsDeals finally got my wheels from powdercoat at Forgestar. Tires should be mounted and balanced tomorrow and by next week sometime I should have them on my car! I've been waiting on these wheels from before SEMA when I found out there were going to make the F14's in 22's I'm so excited!!


Stay tuned....

Wheels are finally on!!

Without further adieu.........I couldn't resist, I just had to put them on and take some pics Will get her all cleaned up tomorrow and get some better pics with better lighting.

I couldn't be happier After months of waiting for these I finally got them on. Hope you guys enjoy!

I also installed the trunk SS emblem from Sparks Restorations and the bowtie delete until the front SS is available.

Nicely done - I love multispoke wheels on the Camaro. You must be loving life right now...
What is the width out back?

I ended up getting a promotion to Orlando,FL , so that will have to do for now. That gas price is killer down there!

Again, great looking Camaro. HAS to be the coolest one in the Cayman Islands, right?

Waiting for these wheels was like waiting to get my car....painful! Lol, but it was worth the wait. Rears are 22x10.5 and tires are 315/25/22

Gas went up again this week!

Thanks too. Not tooting my own horn but it looks damn sweet by the ocean during sunset, but then again I have the only one tricked out camaro down here.

I like the tire choice. They still look pretty meaty for being 22". Ive seen some that look too much like rubber bands, but yours looks great.

Yeah...that was a baited question - I didnt really think there were too many other Camaro's down there - and certainly not modded!

You get to have something truly unique in your neck of the woods!

Soo,whats next for the ride??

Surprisingly they actually ride pretty good. I have only driven her once since I put them on and honestly I don't notice a difference compared to the stockers.

A friend of mine has a yellow vette that just got a new set of color matched wheels, so we are planning on trying to get a photo shoot done at one of the airport hangers.....should look good.

Next on the mod list is either a cam swap or maybe a stealth box from subthump. Which ever I decide.........it will sound good! LOL

Next on the mod list....HAVOC X5 side skirts and street scene front splitter painted matte black. The only thing I don't really like is how the sides of the street scene splitter would match up with the side skirts, but I like how the sides of the factory GFX splitter are but not really how the front contour looks. Decisions.......

Maybe I could have a body shop cut down the sides of the street scene splitter to look smaller.
