This seems like a good time to start my thread......

Wife said she wanted another Camaro but it had to be Blue, Automatic and Quiet<--??? :bonk: This explains the NOWEEDS solution.

Bought the 2010 SS/RS ABM A6 with 34,200 miles on the clock, Bone Stock in July 2016.

It actually took me about 5 months of looking, then giving up, and this one popped up on craigslist 15 minutes from my house for at or below Market Value, depending on who you ask.

Trying not to bore you, so here are some of the photos from day 1, I bought it within 24 hours of it being listed!

These are pictures I took after meeting the previous owner to see the car, we just got done looking it over for 45 minutes and a test drive. He went shopping and I circled the lot a few more times taking these pictures.

That is my favorite color combo, wife convinced me to get the RJT. She was right, but I still love that color combo...

Thanks Don!!

I have a lot of catching up to do on this thread to get to real time!

So you might have seen the Mojave seat. The previous owner included them in the sale. Along with other various interior pieces to match.

I tore the entire interior out to upgrade the factory speakers, install the backup camera, subwoofer and so I could put in the Mojave.

I did not have the Mylink yet, but I knew I was getting it so I pre-wired and mounted the backup camera so I would be ready!

I was still waiting on my title so this gave me a good distraction from not being able to drive it yet!

Mojave, my favorite for sure.

Gutted the Interior, you want to exercise caution on the small fittings and around the airbags.

I found a nice condition Kicker sub made for our Camaro's. Yes I know it will not shake the doors open, but it is perfectly balanced with the speakers and (now MyLink) power from the head unit. It really does play any type of music, the way it was meant to be heard. Very happy with this....and since the exhaust has to be "QUIET" I suppose this stood out to me even more, and I really like it.

Sub Test Fit to Finish, I can still get my golf clubs back there, gotta love that.

Backup Camera Install, Had to cut a small hole in the bumper as other have documented....this was VERY HARD for me to do... it took me 2 nights of no sleep and some encouragement from my stepfather, I finally decided to send her under the knife :twitch: The actual cutting was very easy with a regular box cutter and turned out nice with no regrets.....

Barely Noticeable and very glad I did it.

So I think we can all agree, there are some aesthetic issues with the stock rims, I am not complaining, but they were clearly due for an upgrade.

I wanted forged OEM ZL1 10 spokes badly, but decided Black with my white stripes was not right for me. My step father had a 69 SS396 Camaro Blue with White stripes and white convertible top when I met him, he had done a frame off restoration. So I prefer that old school look on this car, trying to resemble his as close as possible. He was also the original owner of the QUICRNU tag here in VA...... ok enough mushy stuff.....

I found a steal of a deal on some PVD Chrome coated OEM ZL1 rims....with nearly new Factory Goodyear G2s on them. :eyebulge:

Thank you Detroit Wheels and Tires!

Some Old vs New comparisons. You will see I weighed them....the New ones are still boxed up, the packaging was only 1lb...which means the 2 inch wider rims and tires, WITH PVD Chrome coating, still weighed the same as my Stockers. I call that a solid Win.

Oh yea, so the car still needs seats installed!!!

P.S. It had been about 2 weeks and I still did not have my title. Seller was a super honest upfront guy and I had no concerns, other than I wanted to drive it!!! But the waiting continued on his bank to clear the lien.

SO The Mojave seats were from a 2012 or 2013 I am not sure, but they did not have the passenger airbag sensor in them. This of course means the Airbag light will be Permanently on, that will not do.

There is a write up on how to transfer the sensor from your old seat to the new seat, PS you also need to switch the Front Seat Seatbelt latches. The seatbelt in the car buckle is too wide for the newer seat portion "female" side if you will. Easy swap from old seats to new seats, 1 electrical connector and the bolt. I used Locktite.

The sensor swap if I recall required hand tools, electrical connectors of your choice, a drill and a snap rivet gun (I love a reason to buy tools!!)

Here are some general pics that may or may not help fill n the gaps from the other write up on the seat airbag sensor.

Ok, so 3.5 weeks of staring at the car was really starting to get to me, my wife wanted to take a trip to skyline drive on the Camaro's first drive for our anniversary!! I had not title!

Got a call that it was in free and clear, went to DMV the next day!

I had a few days before the trip and decided I wanted to invest in some protection for the car's exterior. I had been obsessing over it the last 3.5 weeks and certainly, it is very pretty and rare. I decided to get a Full on Factory Detail and put the XPEL Ultimate...or whatever their best clear bra is with the 10 year warranty.

Jose the owner Safeguard Auto Salon LLC did a phenomenal job and it literally came back to me looking like a new car! I provided him some touch up paint and he included the touch-up work at no extra charge! Very happy with this and I am 7 months later with absolutely 0 issues.

If you are looking for a detail or Clear Bra in the Richmond, VA area, google Safeguard Auto Salon LLC and tell him Jack sent you. (Might need to reference my car too, he sees a lot of people. lol)

Needless to say, I made the trip deadline and it was A LOT of fun with these fat tires on this thing in the mountains.

**I did need to Zip Tie my E-Brake Cables, it made a loud popping that was speed sensitive and only while turning. In case you experience this, try the Ebrake cable 1st!

A couple more angles of the detailing job, with a shot of the clear bra seam going across the hood, standing beside the passenger side mirror looking forward.

Honestly, you cant see it from any other angle unless heavy sunlight or it is very dusty(RARE).

Also I have a very steep driveway, my exhaust was scraping as I would be coming up the hill into the garage...... hurting concrete and even worse, her under belly. I was scraping the pipes right about when I got halfway inside.

I bought some 4inch Race Ramps from Walmart site to store, they raise my front as I enter making the angle such that no more scraping, plus I can get the jack under the car, or even slide under there myself without jacking it up for visual inspecting. Pretty handy, but not something I would have invested in for my use if I wasn't scraping.

Next was my first trip to the drag strip in years.

I went to a Test and Tune with the family.... I honestly had high hopes.... Automatic, wider rear tires.....I had read online people in the low 13s Bone stock, so I was hoping with a good 60ft to creep near or into the 12s

WELL.........that was HORRIBLY wrong.......

94 degrees ambient, was VERY HUMID.....

Embarassed to say, it laid down a 14.3 ET with a 2.4 60 foot @100mph trap speed. I did Tree a Hellcat, and the first 60 ft of the video looks REALLY good... lol until the cars looks like it shifted in to reverse.

Yes I had TC and Stabilitrac Off, Yes I was in S mode but the computer was shifting. Yes it Deadhooked, Yes I had a .102 reaction Time(not really related but I was proud). Yes 93 Octane, Yes I brake stalled / preloaded suspension bumping in for the launch, NO I did not have Fun. (The family did though).

:sad0147: :help:

.........This clearly was not acceptable.... more to come on this....
