I bought my Camaro used from a Ford dealership with 8188 miles on 03/31/11.

Here's a couple of pics loading it on my trailer the day I picked it up.



Dyno day. Only mods were the K&N CAI and a Predator tune that came with the car. Dyno is load bearing and very stingy, so I was impressed with 380 rwhp.



Quick vid showing my sequential tail lights.

Lowered with Pfadt springs.



Barton short throw shifter.

Can also change to this anytime.


Full Kooks exhaust. Catback is the Street Sleeper.



HUD install.






Colored all of the stitching from white to orange.



DSS 1400 hp axles.


Heritage grille waiting for me to install. Custom emblem painted IOM by Sparks. Also have the rear SS to go on.


New intake waiting for me to install.

Had Weldcraft widen some stock rear wheels 1.5" for a total width of 10.5".




A little bit of paint to conceal the welds.

Got around to installing the DSS axles.

Also installed a color matched XM antenna from RPI.

So...you must not have a job, right? That's a serious amount of work.

It's not that much when you consider it's been spread out over 4 months. I worked over 50 hours a week up until two weeks ago. I decided to take some time off and make a career change. I've worked in the restaurant industry for 15 years and I'm ready to try something else.

Awesome! I really like the direction you've taken with the car! Making those kinds of improvements while maintaining a stock look isn't the easiest route at all. So how did ya color the stitching?

I used an Elmer's paint pen to color the stitching. Color a few stitches at a time, then wipe with a damp cloth to remove the paint from the leather. You have to be more careful with the cloth parts. If some paint got on the cloth, blotting instead of wiping worked best.

Nice work! Can't wait to see the finished wheels/tires on the car, or have we already seen them?

I ordered some Nitto Invos back in April. They've been backordered, but I should have them soon.
