wow! I'm glad I read this thread. You sir have done basicly everything I want to do to my camaro! I love what you have done and how you've tracked everything. I'm looking forward to the next get together to meet you and the other locals so I could pick your brains to help me mod mine the right way.

To be honest I have not got the 2 step operational yet. All my time slips were without it. Should have operational by Fest. I do have a private Utube video of the 12.35 pass. I'll see if I can send you the link. I might make it public one day.

Suspension Day #1

With help from my buddy Bill we got Pumpkin into a million pieces. Got the bushings to press out of the rear upper control and change springs on the rear coilovers. Then were ready to put Pumpkin back together.
