The bowtie is going away. It's being replaced with the badge on the bottom.


It is the factory GM SS emblem with a "T" added. It has the bend in the middle to match the rear panel.

Well... alright then. Now I like it.














Your car is so far out of my league it ain't funny, but I am thoroughly enjoying watching this build. Thanks for sharing it with us peons...

My car asked if he can have an autographed photo of your car.

This build (and thread) never fails to put a smile on my face.

I kid you not...a couple days ago when I realized I was eating a cheese steak...I almost spit it out I was laughing so hard.

The second pic will give you an idea of the aspect ratio off of the car. (This is the 345 on a different wheel)
Makes my 315's seem so inadequate, and here I thought the 315's were MANLY and you gotta go and burst my bubble and break those bad boys out.... just goes to show someone always has a bigger set than you... now where did I put my Viagra

We can both do autographs...it's sometimes referred to as a burnout.

Oh, beat up on the poor Camaro 5 Sub Shop Special - The SST is going to have an inferiority complex during road tuning...

Hey, you're the reason why these things even fit. You went right out, climbed under your car and took all those measurements and posted the photos. Do you realize we overlayed the pictures you sent with the wheel tub shots and actually measured for the wheels off of my computer screen at work? Then we sent the dimensions to Forgeline. And the funniest part - They are dead nuts on... Thanks !!! P.S. If you happen to be working on your car you may not want to take Viagara - if so, you may be stuck under your Camaro for a few hours...

Let's hope so. Otherwise it will be an overpriced doorstop.

Thank You for the compliments. There have been some pretty creative imaginations working on the SST. Some idea comes out of left field (or center or right ) and they end up increasing functionality while still looking stock. GM produced such a great platform with this new Camaro. They did the hard part.

Lovin' the tires..... Even the wife said, "whoa... why don't you do that.... " she's a gear head at heart.

It didn't take long for her to realize "not in the budget"



Gettin closer Bruce!

Thanks GTA. You know the wife is right...
Who said anything about new rims? I am sure with the right crowbar we can fit a set of 345's on your rims. May ride a little funny though.

Yeah, the excitement is starting to build now. Still a little ways off, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Down at the office this morning. Getting ready to head home...

Hoping we get the traction we need with those. If not, the next size jumps to 390 which would be so tight they could only be on at the track.
