Had the car a month now...

Actually its been about 5 months since Ive had the car...

My goal has been to ride the line between retro and modern (while still being somewhat understated). I think Ive taken it about as far as I can without getting gaudy.

(And yes a number of these photos have been posted earlier)

Exterior mods include 67 Camaro flag badges, Retro USA rear quarter "gills" (painted body color), body color heritage grill and tail light bezels, tinted tail and side marker lights (vinyl overlays), "ghost" RS hood graphic, tinted windows, Eibach lowering springs and sway bars, LED DRLs, light reflective silver RS emblems, and chromed amber turn signal bulbs (front).








Ghost graphic (looks good in person but it doesnt show up well in photos)




Interior mods include a CARID black dash kit, hand painted console lid, billet gauge cluster trim rings, chrome (billet) radio and ac/heat control knobs, RS badge with matte black center, LED footwell lights, chrome "camaro" decal on radio face, anodized black billed kick plates, polished door sill plates, switchblade silver interior trim kit, and GM MTX subwoofer box in trunk.

I did all the silver paint work myself with Duplicolor "rattle cans", 2000 grit sand paper and Meguiars Scratch X.








A few pics with mine next to a 69 Z. The 69 Camaro was basically the template I used for styling cues.

I have Eibach springs and sway bars on it. 1" drop in the front and 1.3" in the rear.

It has a really comfortable ride going down the road, but Ive taken off/on ramps at 45 mph and it stays nice and flat all the way through the turn.

I like the whited-out RS emblems. I haven't seen that yet. It looks good.
