Jewel's Journal

After having the car for several months now it is time to start my build thread.

Build Date: Feb 22, 2011
Adoption Date: April 9, 2011

My Camaro is a 2011 2LT/RS RJT. I named her Jewel and that is where I got my Camaro5 user name from. I have been obessed with the 5th Gen Camaro since the Summer of 2008. I finally had my dream come true back in April when I drove her off the lot. Here is a picture of her in my driveway back in WV.

The first thing I added was this RJT engine cover to Jewel. I purchased the cover from 15thCamaro over the 4th of the July weekend. He sold his V6 and got a V8. He wanted someone to have the cover that loved Camaros so he sold it to me. :thumbup:

I then painted my bezels with plastidip.
Attachment 309460

Then added a magnetic blackout, which I hope to do vinyl or paint in the spring. I am not sure if I want to keep the bowtie. Suggestions are welcome.
Attachment 309461

My car was vandalized over the summer and when they repainted the car I had them remove the Camaro lettering. I really would like to replace them with black lettering someday.

Keep the bowtie. A local guy took the bowtie off and did the black strip and it looks weird. Leave the bowtie but an RJT one.

Engine cover looks good. RJT looks very nice with white rally's!

Thanks for the advice. I was thinking of removing the front bowtie and keeping the back on and painting it RJT. I think the front looks so clean without the bowtie. This is something to think about over the winter and look at more photos on C5.

My rallys are actually silver. It is a mistake a lot of people make and the pictures are not all that great.

Thanks for checking out my thread.

Jewel :chevy:

IROCanSS 11-24-2011 10:29 PM

Oh, cool... I bet silver looks great... prob better than white actually.

jewel25 11-25-2011 11:37 AM

Here is some cool photos of Jewel:

:bow::headbang:

Aequitas & Veritas 11-25-2011 12:22 PM

Lookin good so far! I'd go no front bowtie and RJT rear bowtie

TOMS1SS 11-25-2011 07:02 PM

Awesome job so far on Jewel, Nicole. :thumbsup:

AzItaliaSS 11-26-2011 07:57 PM

Jewel, I would keep the bowtie, and color match the chrome part with RJT and paint or plastidip the inside black to match the rear strip and underneath diffuser. It would pull together the RJT and black and still look suttle. OOORRRRRRRR RJT the chrome part and silver out the Bowtie to match your rallys, it would be a bit brighter but still stay within the color theme of your car. Just my .02

Awesome build! :clap:

Beautiful car, fantastic color, great ideas. I'd like to see what a RJT bowtie would look like.

jewel25 12-09-2011 06:32 AM

Thanks everyone for checking out my thread and for the excellent ideas. After reading what everyone has to say, I still don't know what I am going to do.:iono:

Well I have a few months to decide before she comes out of storage.

STINGER BEE 12-09-2011 06:38 AM

Nice Pictures of the car Nicole ,won't be long before you will be enjoying her again.

I am going home to visit her this weekend. I hope the weather is nice and there is no salt on the roads. I will be roaring the streets with her. :wub:

Looking Good Jewel!

mel0629 12-09-2011 07:17 AM

Car Looks Awesome!!!!!So far I've only done the tinted @ 25%, Next up is the Strips

cam fan 12-14-2011 12:33 PM

nice car! I like your build journal - seems like we have a lot more in common in the regard to modding, outside of the shared RJT :)

I purchased the SLP gloss vinyl for the rear & somewhat regret that money lost - could have been done with $5 vinyl off of ebay + cutting...which is exactly what I did for my front bow tie. Opposite for the SLP gills - fade graphic is worth the money. Maybe you'd like to try those inexpensive mods since you're looking for ideas.

I like the black out you have done on the rear! I intended on putting my rear bow-tie back on bc in a way it looked like something was missing - like a face w/o a nose.....BUT it really looked sporty after a while.

Beautiful car! As for the bowtie issue, I have a SIM and I HATE the gold and SIM together. I got the black billet aluminum interior bowtie replacements - easy install, you just heat up and remove the gold, and pop in the new black. If you go for the blacked out Camaro lettering it could help tie everything together. I've seen the look of the vinyl and I think the billet looks sharper and worth the extra $$$. Interested to see what you do next!

jewel25 02-13-2012 05:48 PM

A C5 member sent this to me as a thank you. Still don't know what to do with the rear.
