Hello from Alabama

Hey guys, just dropping in to say hello. I've been lurking / reading for about a week, lots of good info on this site for sure.

Traded in my Rubicon JKU for an 18 2SS vert - big switch I know! Only had the car for 6 days before I came back overseas for work, can't wait to get back home, drop the top and enjoy the weather!

Welcome to the Forum, you sure do have a beautiful set of wheels. I have a 2014 Vert in the Ashen Gray also, love the car. I've driven the Camaro twice in the last 18 months to Gadsden, Al (NE of Birmingham). Great drive and beautiful scenery. Again, "Welcome", now get home and drive her like you own it.

Gonna start off easy, first would be to change out the side markers, I have see some NGM with blacked out ones and they look sweet. Next on the list would be to paint the calipers (touch of red i think), de-badge the sides and rear bowtie. Would love to put the larger style SS in the bowties place on the rear, just not sure where to find the bigger style in kind of the same red that the current logo has...

CONGRATS on the ride, and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5/6. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wives', husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

Got it. My 2017 has a blue top for some reason. Only 140 were made.

I ran across your post about that the other day, the Blue doesn't look too bad in my opinion, definitely different than all but the 140 others you mentioned...

I agree on painting calipers, it's a easy way to make them look really good. I recently painted mine a candy apple red color, as it was the closes off the shelf match I could find to garnet red tin coat.
