The Story of Zeus

Hello all, i'd like to officially welcome Zeus to the Camaro 5 Forum!



A little FAQs before we get this wild money spending addiction of a thread started.

Q: What is Zeus?
A: it is a 2013 2LT RS V6

Q: Why Zeus?
A: well, the cars name actually started off as Raiden! (Mortal Kombat) mainly because of the color of the car, which is silver and well i guess my father thought that it was like lightning. after taking ownership of the car, i changed the name to Zeus because i feel like it fit the cars name better and also because Zeus happens to be a God in Greek mythology + it reminded me of God of War.

Q: What are you trying to achieve with this thread?
A: Its more of a personal blog but i'm sharing it with the community because I've seen everyone else's stories on here and there honestly pretty amazing, i'd like to see where this goes a couple of years from now and to see how much Zeus has changed.

Goals:
Completely change how Zeus looks, turn it into a God of a car!

To-do list:
  • Window Tint
  • Black out Taillights, side marker lights, reverse lights and all the other lights other than Headlights.
  • Bright new Fog lights, preferably DRL's
  • Axle Back exhaust, preferably MRT.2.0
  • Resonated X-Pipe from Magnaflow
  • American Racing Headers Catless Down pipes
  • 6th Gen ZL1 Bumper Conversion Kit from iKon
  • Z28 Carbon Fiber Hood
  • Spoiler Upgrade
  • Cragar 615 Wheels
  • NITTO NT555 Tires
I will also be including the total of how much the build has costed me, it should be pretty interesting to see how much i put into the car.
Build Total:$1,396.37

Red text indicates that I have finished that mod.
This thread will be updated weekly! the list will eventually grow more and more.

Most of my parts were ordered from Phastek Performance, with the exception of the lights, they're from Diode Dynamics.

The Blackout kit came in! as well as the Black Tail light bezels, this looks way better than the stock chrome bezels.
Next would be to remove that MK Sticker.

Hey fellow Texan! I just got my 2014 2LT RS like two months ago and all I've done so far is the fog lights to LED, reverse my keys back to switchblade and add a amp/subwoofer. Did you plan these mods for a long time?
