"Jane" - Bc of her Fat A$$




So I've had "Jane" Since August. Went with Black bc it was the only color at the dealership other than a Blue Auto and I just couldn't talk myself into the SS without a clutch. Named her Jane bc she's thick in the back. Here is a list of what's done so far...

-Debadged the camaro on the sides
-Took the SS's of the front and back, painted them graphite and put them on the cowl part of the hood.
-Removed the bowties, Seperated the two pieces, painted the outside chrome piece graphite and the center piece black
-Rear Taillight bezels Painted Graphite
-Muffler delete (until I do headers, high flow cats and rear center exhaust)
-Barton Industries Short Shifter w/ Engraved SS on Black knob
-Vararam Intake
-Eibach pro kit
-Custom Blue Calipers
-"5THGEN SS" high temp decals in graphite on each caliper
-powdercoated black stock 20'' rims with Ebony Chrome powdercoated lip
-ebony chrome powdercoated lug nuts
-tint
-caliper paint matched engine cover

That's the list up to date so far. put her all back together this weekend and took her out. Here is the to-do list...

-Center exhaust rear diffuser
-headers
-high flow cats
-X-pipe
-resignators (probably no mufflers)
-sts Turbo System
-carbon fiber front lip and side skirts

Let me know what you think so far, always up for suggestions and if you have any questions, let me know, I'm all about sharing ideas...thanks.

Can you throw up a pic of the engine cover? I love the color of the calipers. What type of paint did you use?

I painted them myself. its with duplicolor. its a paint that is made to paint over chrome. if its not chrome, there is a base coat that needs to be put on first. this paint comes in blue like i did and a red. i tried to duplicate the Zr1 color and i think they turned out ok.
