Nice thread and beautiful car, Erick! My cousin had a blue 1980 RS, 6-cyl 3 speed, and he gave it up to get married, still not sure why.

Thanks for posting the racing vid, so cool how you really took off in the high gear. SWEEET! You can tell it was made to run.

Love the come from behind to win, man that must have felt great!!! Enjoy!

Thanks! ^

Today was a beautiful day in Michigan. It was an incredible 82 degrees today.

Yesterday I spent the day taking off the winter wheels and cleaning up the wheel wells. I had painted the calipers Cyber Gray in the fall, but they looked a bit too mono-chromatic. So--Color change to the reminiscent blue of my 77' Camaro.
Before:

After:



I took the afternoon today to wash and wax. I love the mirror shine I got:


What a great weekend!

I like it, do you not want to paint over the Carbon fibre, I think it would look cool if you did like a see through silver

Sinister Hood Concept 2

I'll have to ask the painter - good Idea.
Here's another version taken from the 45th anniversary Camaro:

So - My car is at the body shop for the new hood and everyone hates the red accent. Including the boss, I mean my wife. So I'm off to the shop to get another look. If I take the Red out, I'd still like the RS accent.

The hood went on today to check the fit. A bit low on the driver side but a little shim is all it needs.

The tail is painted less the striping:

It's a little bigger than I thought it would be.

50 lbs was the delivery weight including the box. Seems lighter to me.
