Took her to schwaby’s to get something checked out and got to see the suspension goodies previous owner installed









I thought the Camaro in general handled better than my s550 GT but now I see she had a little help.

Went and sat in it. Rubbed it a little... (the car). Have to say I'm not fond of the alcantara on the steering wheel. Would prefer it to be leather, making me debate swapping it out.

I prefer the leather myself too. Now that being said, if I finally decide to pick up the ZL1, the alcantara wouldn't stop me from getting one.

Installed BC coilovers (non-magride) and carbon fiber splash/mud guards from Trufiber. Still waiting for the wheels to come in, to finish out the exterior look.

Gorgeous. As much as I love the Smurf look with the current 22 Rapid Blue color (I sold my 21 LT1 in Summit White to get the Rapid Blue 22)......I still think that white is the best "long term will always look good color" on the Camaro. It will never go out of style......whereas my Smurf may look "sooooo 2022" in 5-10 years like other trendy colors.

Id have sprung for it......but I suspect the $7k adder would be too much on the LT1 (which is supposed to be the "bargain V8" of the line).

I only want to lease (and I dont care about doing too many irreversible warranty voiding mods) so the LT1 is the only way for me to go currently. A leased LT1 1LE would make sense however (as once one calcs out the actual increase in cost with the residual value and the currently low money factor).

The more I see these wickerbills, the more I like them on this car, esp with the 1LE type spoiler. Previously, I thought these spoiler types were too over the top.......but after seeing a few of them I did the same thing on my LT1. I went with an EOS aftermarket one (so it was completely reversible and can put the OEM RS lip spoiler back on if desired and as its a lease). I thought the rear visibility would going to be horrible with the wicker added, but it didnt affect it at all.

As for the what did I do to my Camaro today theme.......I added a Camaro emblem to the rear spoiler in the spot that the factory 1LE emblem would normally go. Even though I am trying to give this LT1 the 1LE look, I dont have the heart to put badges on a car that advertise something it is not.

I like that third brake light. Is it a sticker or custom-made light?

And thank you, yes, just dropping it a bit completely changed the look. I can't wait for the new wheels to arrive to give it a beefer look.

It is a vinyl overlay that I had someone make on Etsy.

I also had a 3D printed one made for my Jeep. I think the overlay is better for the Camaro though.

Warning.....dont search Etsy for "Camaro" or "Jeep".....youll be there for hours :-)

Roads aren't perfect, but decided to take it to work today anyway.
