Put in new dark premium mats. I love the gray interior but didn't realize that would include the carpets....and it is SUPER light. Even with my best efforts, the factory mats were already looking dirty within weeks.

Before and after...

You can do a google search for 'black tail light bezels for 2010 camaro' (or whatever year that's applicable) and find sets for about $70 or you can do like most of us have and paint your own with Plasti-Dip for about $5.

Check my build diary which isn't nearly as in-depth as some, but I've tried to show what I've been able to accomplish over the last few months:

Took a cruise in my 2013 SS convertible through Angeles Crest with my best friend in his 2013 427 Corvette convertible and my other good friend with his 2013 Porsche Turbo S cabriolet.

I'll really have to think about Plasti-dip tail light bezels when I get my car, those blacked out bezels looks so much better than the stock chrome.

Yeah they do look good and I was actually going to get those but there not staggered, right?
But hey if these others keep taking forever I'm going to have to.
So they look real good then? Kind of wanted staggered!

I took mine to a car show (got caught in a rainstorm on the way there...spent the first 30 minutes drying it off, then another 45 or so tryin to get any spots I missed shined up) at a convalescent center for military veterans.

One guy wanted a ride in my car so I helped him transfer from his wheelchair into the passenger seat, belted him in and then switched the traction control off. It laid down a nice pair of black lines for the length of the parking lot (well, I had to leave a little room to stop) and put a permagrin on the dude's face.
(I thought there was a burnout smilie here)

The gent in the photo with the walker is a 27-year navy vet...there were numerous vets with 20+ years there. I'm a Cold War vet and I felt kinda awkward havin guuys like this thanking me for my service. It was a major "feelgood", tho.

Took out the oil pump, the relief valve was stuck. I had zero oil pressure, thankfully it happened in the garage on startup.

LOL, I thought I was the only one that wrapped my hose in electrical tape after shrink wrapping it... I guess I didn't trust it.
