In the pictures with the back bumper removed, there is a black rectangle on each side of the trunk. Is this some type of vent? If not, what is it, and what is it for? Vents for the battery in the trunk? Does this maybe contribute to exhaust drone due to the location? Anyone???

If you mean this piece, it is a pressure relief vent. It is there so when you close the doors or the trunk it is easier. With the tighter seals modern cars have, it gives the air someplace to escape when closing things. I can't think of any late model cars that don't have them.
As far as drone, I don't think it would make any difference.

That's it. Thanks for the explanation. It makes sense.

What color scheme are you going with? I love the black wheels on verts with black tops, but I'm a little biased.

You'll have to stay tuned! I hope it will be ready to pick up on Monday 4/18.

Yep, getting pretty anxious! I just heard that it will probably be Wednesday before it is ready. They took off all of the panels, will paint them, then reassemble it, add pinstripe, take back apart to clear it, then assemble it again.

Might have been easier to send your team to Oshawa to work on it or have Chevy just ship the parts

I ordered my 'mods'...Bow-tie blackouts, and dark gray hood spears to, as my wife said, "pull some color from the interior to the outside"

Starting small for me...Have a great weekend!

I'm glad you like it. A little low for me though. I haven't heard anyone saying it is too low except my wife. But that could be that they are just trying to be nice. I'd rather the truth

Funny. There are many people that would like to order the car just primered. I don't think we're ready for camaro kit cars

There's no hurry on the mods. Take your time and do only what you want. I like the hood spears. That will look good.

Come on Wednesday!!!

Got a call from 4RD H8R... the car won't be ready until late this week (hopefully). He said that the clear was very thin, and they sanded through it in spots. The good news is that they will be repainting most/all of the white, before clearing the whole car. Should give me good thickness, so hopefully I won't suffer from chips as easily.

I'm getting very anxious!!!

I have a few more pics I'll post this morning, and should have lots by tonight. They're getting very close now. Just about ready to start reassembly.

Yeah, after a long road trip, my convertible is getting close to the callaway's mileage, and I haven't even had the convertible in my possession for almost 3 weeks!

Are you enjoying your ride?

I have posted a few more pics in the first few thread messages. Lots of parts missing! I'm ready for some pics of it going back together. I've been able to stay away and let them work their magic. The shop is about 25 miles away, or I would be there every day.

Getting close now
