The Ghetto Ride - 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

This is my 1984 Camaro, I've owned this car since about 1992 and drove it daily for many years. It was originally a V6 no thrills car,  it had absolutely no options. When the V6 finally died, I had a choice.  To restore it, or scrap it.   I decided to restore it,  but make it better than ever. 

I started with the interior, and ripped everything out. I mean everything!
I replaced the ugly and dated 84 dash, and installed a more modern looking 92 Dash. I replaced the ugly blue carpet, with a nicer looking graphite color. I also changed the color of all the interior plastics to graphite too. I recovered the headliner and speaker covers. Added the power options that the car didn't come with from the factory ie. power windows/mirrors.
 

Custom stuff that I've done  
 

Converting all exterior turn/brake lights to LED.
Complete conversion to LED, over a 1000 LEDs soldered into place.

Audio System:

1. Custom made sub box.
2. Hidden amps
3. Custom made kickpods
4. Custom made bezel to house a 7 inch touchscreen running off a raspberry PI..
 

LED Instrument cluster


Stock dash lighting is terrible, using LED strips I customized the back lighting giving making the dash look great.

HIDs


The stock halogen lighting is worthless on these cars, so I've installed Bi-Xenon HIDs. These have improved night time driving tremendously.
