Had a million and one things to do today, but I did get around to cleaning out the garage, giving the car it's first bath, threw in the floor mats and installed the splash guards. It was too dark for pics but I will post some tomorrow.

Man, good idea on the reserved blocks, wish id thought of that. Was never a big fan of the orange interior, but it really looks good on the vert w the top down!

I thought it might be too much orange, but I did a lot of reading and everyone who had that fear said that the interior was the thing they got the most compliments on. After looking at so many pictures of this interior all black just seemed too boring. A flashy colored car need flashy interior.

Ginger looks great. I've been lurking on the forums for awhile when I came across your thread. I noticed something strangly familar when i saw your photos taken when you picked it up.

I was planning on waiting for the ZL1. My wife told me I should at least test drive a Camaro if I was going to spend the next year waiting anxiously. We ended up at Reliable 2 weeks ago and rolled out in a 2011 SS/RS Summit White coupe with the black stripes. My car was parked where yours was a couple of weeks after yours.

Keep it up! Looks awesome.

Great bunch of guys up there! My sales man Brian Prosser hooked me up with a discount on the vert when no one else was getting any at all!

Out of curiosity, have you had any issues scraping the splash guards since you lowered the car? I have them as well and they're the only thing causing reservations about lowering it. Sad that $140 worth of molded plastic could sway my decision.

love your car btw. IOM was my first choice, but couldn't find the trim level i wanted when i bought.

The only time it has been a problem was when I would back it into the garage, I kept backing up until my rear tire hit my engine hoist's leg. It was the perfect spot to stop, with the back bumper just inches away from the wall. Well after lowering I backed it up just like I always do and the rear splash guard was low enough to get caught on the leg. I didn't notice it until I pulled out and the engine hoist followed me a little. I moved the hoist and now use some 2x4s as stops.

The front splash guards are the ones that are pretty low, but they have not ever hit on anything and I doubt they ever will. The connecting pipes to my headers hang about 1/4" lower than the splash guards and I have only hit those once when I didn't see a parking lot speed bump and went over it too fast. It just barely tapped them, because it didn't even leave a mark or scratch them.

I'll go snap a pic of how low they hang.

Clearance after lowering. This is with your standard 3.5" wide 2x4.

Car looks great! I know we met years ago back when you were racing your '98 SS.

What do you think of those headers from a quality standpoint?
