Recent Changes/Improvements to My 2010 Camaro IBM 1SS/RS

Hey All...

Made some recent changes (see pics below) to my Camaro purchased in April:
1) IBM body-color front and rear bowties - $100 and 3 weeks to receive from RPIDesigns - this is my favorite mod - I really didn't appreciate it until they were on - took 2min to install front (pull off firmly and push on gently) and 10min to install rear (hairdryer to heat up adhesive, fishing line to pull off gently, clean and apply new bowtie with 3M adhesive tape)

2) MagnaFlow Axle-Back Comp Series (5" tips) - $325 and 3 days to receive from C5 sponsor IPS Brandon + $89 installed in 1hr - recommended by C5 member txogre - it looks great and sounds better

3) Dallas Cowboy Personalized Plates with my C5 username - $70 from State of Texas and 3 weeks to receive - yes, I am a BIG DC fan!

4) Clear Side Markers - $50/set and 1 week to receive from neondials on eBay - I posted my installation in another thread - took 2min per side

5) Ordered and received the steering wheel controls for phone/stereo - having dealer install soon.

Haven't put on the black factory leather covers I purchased from C5 member Legend yet - a little too challenging for a DIY project - tried for 15min with my brother, cracked open a beer, and decided we were in over-our-heads! BUT - I am having the center leather oval removed from the headrests and replaced/stitched with gray leather and the blue 4" Dallas Cowboys logo star embroidered - saw the sample today and looks great. Will post when they are installed.

I am going to leave the Camaro very stock on the outside - I personally love the clean look with the IBM, tinted windows, and hints of polish/chrome (but I appreciate and applaud other members and what they have done to their Camaros). I am going to keep the Cowboy fan-stuff to a minimum. My next mod purchase/install is the Roto- Fab CAI.

Feel free to comment or make suggestions! Thanks, DCCAM (Will)

If you want someone to install your leather, call American Sunroof in Dallas. (214) 634-0608

Ask for Sheila and tell her that Jeff from Sewell referred you. They will take care of you.

Appreciate the suggestion on the leathers. Regarding install of the exhaust - took the kit to my local Meineke who I have done business with for 20 years - they let me observe start-to-finish and they warranty their work. In an out in 47min - very simple and clean install with the axle-back.
