Picking up my SS tomorrow!!

Well after a long wait I'm finally going to have me a Camaro. It came in on Thursday and I get to pick it up finally tomorrow afternoon!! I know that a lot of the Bakersfield guys will be seeing me around town and I look forwarding to heading out to their next meet and greet. And now for the modding!!

I picked up a Black SS2 with the auto trans and RS package. Dealer add-on's including black emblems front and rear, the "Camaro" cargo mat, and I'm having them replace the chrome taillight trim that comes with the RS package for painted black trim. I already can't sleep I wish it was in my garage right now!

I definitely will have to grab some. Quick mods to come when I get it include 5% tint all around, taillight blackout, and muffler delete!

When are those meets going to be? I may be able to free up my calendar because I'd love to see what people have managed to do to their rides so far.

check here for the meets:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=96

i believe there is one every month. also, there is a facebook group for socal camaro5 members. they post the meets there too, which will also send you an email (if you have it set up for that). i don't have the link for the facebook group off hand though. i'm sure someone else can link that for you though if you can't find it.

Here she is, dealer still has to add on a few things but as she sits. Man it's a great feeling to finally own one of these. You feel the nostalgia like you own a piece of history almost!

I believe the solid black ones is what I asked for. I'm going to follow up by doing the RS taillight trim removal to complete the "clean" all black look in the rear.

Brett (the owner of Empire Motorsports) was at our BBK meet in February. Very cool guy. He takes his time and makes sure stuff looks perfect before he lets it out of his shop. He did several changes to stuff before I could post pics just to make sure it was 100%.

You may want to check and make sure you have all 4 plastic inserts behind your license plate placard. 2 of mine were missing and my plate rattles. I have to order 2 new ones.

I'll pass it on to the dealer because he told me if I wanted he could just install it when they do the bow ties so figured why not so I'll make sure.

I hope the ones that I'm getting on mine are the all black ones and not the black with the chrome surround but I'll call them on Monday just to verify and make sure. Shoot at the price you pay through the dealer for them they better be what you want right?

looking good man! congrats!!!!

i see you keep mentioning the chrome tail light rings as the RS package tail light rings...i don't think they're limited only to the RS package. never really paid attention to the cars without the RS package, but i'm sure they have them too.

have you thought of getting them painted black or flat black instead of just removing them?

Well I was told that somewhere online you can track down painted black ones but I may end up removing these and painting them black then reinstalling them. Originally that's what I wanted to do but saw a video on youtube of a Camaro5 family member removing them on his red SS and it looked great. I may stick with the original plan and just paint them and reinstall them. And yeah I was mistaked on the chrome lenses, they do come on all of them and not just with the RS package.
