Congrats on both Camaro and Chest of the week. Very nice set of mods you have going. I have followed many of them in your write-ups. A few of which have been added to my future mod wish list.

Enjoy the skiing, and as we say when snowmobiling keep the ski side down (track side) and keep it off the bark.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Bravo on your selection.As I stated once before on your build thread I consider you a true CRAFTSMAN.
Nice work and super documentation of your build.Makes some of us envious, especially with you taking the chances that you have with your projects.

Wow...

You really deserve COTW status !!!

Not only have you done incredible and tasteful mods, you have it so well documented that others can learn if they see one or two they would like to execute on their Camaros. Very Nice.

actually i snowboard. i have never been on ski's before. i used to be a skater back in the day so i figured it would be easier for me to snowboard than to ski. i will see if the family wants to take a ride to angel fire.

Well good news, got my car back from Vara Chevrolet. They did the warranty work for the clicking noise coming from the rear axles. They had to install shims which they did and it fixed the problem with the clicking noise. I also had squeaking front brakes, I have 26,000 miles and they still replaced them under warranty per the service bulletin. So I pretty happy with their service.

Ok next problem, bummer, driver side seat heater no longer heating. Lights will stay on for a minute then turns off, passenger seat stays on no problem. Ohh well back the shop.

thank you very much,
well change my transmission fluid yesterday, it looked really good. i have 26,000.00 miles. while i was doing it, i also changed the differential also. the car seems to move a little smoother on acceleration . i used gm recommended fluids, total cost $95.00. the diff was very easy, took all of 15 min. the trans took me about an hour, since i didn't have a pump to put the fluid back in, i used a bottle. i am going to post a video of the location of all the fill and drain plugs in the DIY section, i will post a link here later.
Ohh, dropped the car off this morning at Vara, they are checking into the driver side seat heater, inop. i will let yall know how that goes.
