Thank you!
That would be sweet! Thanks!

FINALLY!! MY Roto-Fab engine covers were finished and came in. Installation was pretty easy, just a little annoying at times fighting to align the covers. I took my Roto-Fab CAI off because it kept throwing a CEL for P0171 (running too lean) for now until I can find a solution and put it back on.

I also purchased "ZR-1" style emblems for my fenders to put on in the near future, along with 4 new tailight bezels that I will be painting flat black when I get the chance.

That looks GREAT! Nice job.

BTW, I recently found this thread on the P0171 code
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ighlight=P0171

I don't know if there is any useful info there for you. Hope there is.

Thanks Terri! I will definitely look into trying to resolve this issue. I hate the look of the Factory Airbox compared to the Roto-Fab unit!

Is this resolved? If so what was it? If not, please pm your phone number or call Mike at Roto-fab (260)375-4480. If your stock configuration isn't setting a code, our air intake shouldn't either. It is probably something very simple-we will help you get it figured out.

Nice job the car really stands out with those Mods.especially the side markers.By the way where did you purchase the side marker lights and cool white license plate bulbs.

Job well done.

UPDATE 12 APRIL 2012 : It's been a pretty long while that I updated my build thread, but here we go!!

I decided to spruce up my interior and give it a custom look but maintain some of the factory appeal. I purchased the seat covers from leatherseats.com in premium black leather with scarlett red suede. The oustide stitching was also done in red, with the headrest "SS" outlined in silver. They also made my shift boot, which was done in black suede with red stitching.

I ordered Pedders drop coil springs 220032 and 220035 for the front and rear. Ran into a slight issue with the install, but the issue will be corrected tommorow. More pictures will follow for the final stance, but for now, here are the springs :

UPDATE : I finally buckled down and got a Oracle Footwell Lighting kit for my car. I chose to go with my accent color (red) for my footwell lighting. The install was pretty easy, thanks to the DIY install thread in the Cosmetics Section.






My 3D Carbon Rear spoiler finally came in today, and I am looking forward to getting it painted and installed very soon. I am trying to get the car as close to "ready" as possible for a High School car show coming up on the 5th of May.

I finally removed the spoiler out of the box to check for any damage to make sure there aren't any suprises when I go to take it to the body shop for paint work. Here are some pics for anyone that is on the fence about this rear spoiler. Obviously it will do more justice once it's painted CGM and mounted on the vehicle, but :








I also picked up a PC 7424XP kit from Amazon for $160; I can't wait to try it out once my car gets out the shop!

UPDATE 12 MAY 2012 : I attended my first car show of spring, and ended up becoming a winner! I received the "participant's choice" award, from all of the other entries there. It's a pretty big honor for me, considering the types of cars that were out there (lots of old school American muscle and classic cars) and it felt great.






I also got my 3D Carbon rear spoiler painted at the local body shop here in Virginia Beach, who does outstanding work. The spoiler came out great, and I am completely happy with the way it looks on the car. It's not too over the top or flashy, and makes the car look a lot more aggressive from side and rear profiles :

I also had the body shop paint my OEM steering wheel trim in CGM. I originally ordered a VR trim from RPI Designs, but later opted to paint match it CGM for a more subtle look for the wheel :

I also wanted to add some flare and aggressiveness to the front end, so I ordered the ZL1 Style splitter from RPI Designs. The quality and fit is amazing for the splitter, and I think it's among the best looking you can buy for the 5th Gen.

Once I installed it, I wasn't completely satisfied with the look, so I took it a step further, and had the front lip and front bumper painted similiar to the ZL1. I think it came out amazing, and I do not regret it at all :

UPDATE : I finally got around to dressing up the engine bay a bit more for car shows and personal eye candy. I originally wanted the Showstopper premium underhood kit, but I didn't want everything to look overdone and wanted to maintain some of the "muscle" look so I went with two paint matched pieces from RPI design.

I added the fuse box cover, and brake fluid reservoir cover, which almost completes the underhood look for me, minus a couple more items I will purchase in the near future :
