I got the car for the wife at the end of a deployment back in 2010.
Shortly thereafter I began modding "her" car. (easy to talk her into spending the money right???? it's "HER" car!)

After a couple Fridays of me tellling her should could not drive the car because we had a car show on Saturday she decided I had to trade my truck in and get here a new Challenger....

well, the challenger is already gone and we've got another truck... but guess what.... we still have the Camaro... and the mods never stop....

I Believe your condition is called Modificus Nonterminus Eternicus Insecticus. (Eternal Neverending Modifications Bug). And you were bitten Hard!
But what an outstanding ailment to have!! Most excellent!!!!

for your trunk strut covers ... are the struts a continuous size from one end to the other or is about the last inch of one end thicker? Mine are the later and I can't get the covers on them. The front one didn't have a bump so I am wondering if the back ones have changed since the billet covers were designed or if they are a 'force fit' over the bump or do I have to go buy different struts?

That is strange... I've got a 2011 - the struts are same thickness top to bottom. They slid right on.

That's what I thought your answer would be ... guess I'll have to hit the dealer / part store to see if the 2011 part fits the same as the 2012 part or if they just made a change. Hopefully, I can still get the smooth top to bottom part because they definitely don't just fit over the ones that are on my car now. The front was fine, it did slide right over.

btw, your car does look great, great job.

10 minutes, I keep hearing that :lol: I was able to put most (but not all) of my billet custom accessories on in 10 minutes, but everything else seems to be more to a lot more ;)
