AMT 2010 Camaro SS/RS

Welcome to my build. Their won't be any real special things about this Camaro. I picked it up from Michael's with a 50% coupon ($11.54 Total :D ) This model came without the motor so I'm going to try and spend some more time on the details. So, without further ado, My 2010 Chevy Camaro SS/RS Coupe.

Unboxing- Overall, the body looks good and clean. Minimal flash, no warping. Part holes also look clean and flash free.

My seats colored using a Silver Sharpie. Really like these seats as they are vinyl (rubber) material.

And the brake rotors. They needed something to really change it up. So, I got out my trusty Pin Vise, smallest bit I had and made me some drilled Brake Rotors.

Stock Wheels with Rubber. Hard to tell but I took my Fine Point Black Sharpie Pen and colored in the Lug Nut holes. Contemplating adding Stem Valves.

Here's 2 pictures that will be corresponding with each other. I've always liked my cars setting a little lower. Fitment to me is everything. So, I'm thinking that if I sand out the Axle Holes (First Picture), the car it self will set lower. Stance in second picture is just a little too high for my taste. If I could get some input from anyone, I just want to make sure that it should work with minimal modifications.

Lowered the Camaro. Using a round needle file, I filed out the Axle holes to allow the chassis and body to sit lower on the tires. For me, HUGE difference. Photo's below.

Not yet. Thinking of a Gun Metal or a rich Blue. Any suggestion?

I believe in honest criticism, so I think your paint work was a poor choice. It you would have brushed it on, or even better sprayed it on, it would look 100% better. Again, nothing personal and I mean no offense, I just want to help you improve and get it how you want it. I would strip them and hit them with a spray can if it was me. Keep at it bro.

Yea... When I reviewed the pictures I coukd see the broken sharpie lines. I will probably go back and redo them. Since Im just starting out, ttying to stay cheap and practical. Been really considering getting me an Airbrush Kit. But living in an apartment, I'm worried about the compressor noise. Ill be working on it more tomorrow.
