HUGE thanks to all our friends at Metra for supplying us with their Top-of-the-Line audio components for this build! This car is going to sound simply amazing!



Update:

Hmmm... need to get creative to fit this iPad into this new console!




Update:

Teaser Pic of the new nearly-completed sound system (this is what 3 months worth of work looks like):




Update:

The new sound system came out so nice we are doing a photoshoot




Update:





Of course you can't have a badass pro-touring Camaro without a custom set of wheels. Bismark and USW really came through for us with these custom USW Forged wheels!

*Updated Shots*

Here is another teaser from the soon to be released ORACLE Camaro Photoshoot:





Interior Shot:



Yes, that is an iPad integrated in the console. Why? Controls the stereo, navigation, and on-board web browsing


Update- New Pics!

Motor:




Sound:




Custom Kick Panels:



One of my favorite mods on this entire car is the "hideaway" sidemarkers!

We really wanted to incorporate some of our own products into this build and this was a great way to do it

We used the ORACLE ColorSHIFT LED Strip to illuminate the engine bay which allows us to change colors. Good option if you do not want to commit to one color
