I feel like an even bigger sh*t not being able to meet you and seeing it this weekend... SWEET video though!!! Why is the car so quiet though? j/k I can't get over how good a finish it looks like the hood and trunk lid have. Did the bodyshop comment on how much additional prep' or finish work they needed to do to get them so flat looking and what-not?

Sweet

The hood fit was 100%. There's one TEENY TINY lift in the passenger side front corner but it's like 2mm?? The trunk had some additional prep on one corner, but it wasn't a big deal they said. I'm guessing maybe half hour or an hour of prep, and then normal sanding, primer, etc.

The car is quiet because I paid the extra 100 bucks for the "Helical gear cut" that makes the supercharger ALOT quieter. It's really worth the money since I hate supercharger whine. You can hear the spool from inside and the bov sounds great. Only when I left off the gas under semi-heavy boost do you have a clue that I have a s/c.

I park under embarcadero center 1. I don't take the camaro to work though as I don't think the driveway crubs are wide enough during the small turns to get in and out of without curb rash. if you want, take a weekday off and we'll go to lunch or something on the peninsula.

Cool deal. I've always been skeptical of AM panels and what-not, and it sounds like these are top-notch.

Well done

Oi, yeah. Besides just that there is the whole issue of keeping the car clean.

Nikki parks her car in dirt a parking lot by her work thats under the freeway, so it constaly has a layer of dust on it.

But yeah, maybe we'll meet up some time soon.

Nice car thats a lot of power be careful and have fun whipping up on those mustangs i do I havent been beat yet by anything i have run against you will find theres not much out there that can beat you .I think you find you really need bigger tires in the rear i did i have a 12.4 inch nitto drag tire works really well and up grade your exhaust . I have kooks long tube headers with corsa cat back exhuast it really lets that supercharger breathe you will feel a huge difference.

O M G... that was a cool surprise... Your car is absolutely one of the VERY BEST I've seen. Totally love everything you done.
Almost makes me wish I hadn't pre-ordered and waited it out a bit longer...

Simply stunning...

Yeah, the only other mod I'm planning on is headers, although I can't seem to find anyone making mid-length yet. I might end up going with Shorties because LT are illegal in CA because you have to move the cat. Also I've been told I'm going to need a clutch that can handle the power, so I'm researching those soon.

I appreciate the comments Mike. The wait was antagonizing and the fact I was keyed on day 5 wasn't pleasant, but when this thing is done I'm hoping it'll be even more stunning. =) Mostly subtle visual changes as I really feel that less is more with these cars.
