Another Update

Well we need new tires for the front... No big deal.. Getting those put on sometime next week along with getting the front end aligned. My Dad is suppose to take my car to work with him to one of his offices out of town and they have a car stereo place near it, so he is going to see how much they would charge to replace my right front speaker(it's blown)..

Couldn't put the stripe on today :( It was soo humid outside and my dad said we should just wait till tomorrow, and it's been raining cats and dogs all day!!

So things are coming along good so far.. Might paint my calipers tomorrow or Monday, depending on what we do. The iPod thing I posted, I may try to get done this week if I can find the right stuff to do it with.

So still looking like a real busy week, and still looking like I will be done with everything by Friday

I will post pictures tomorrow of the stripe, and tricks to help get it on? We put stripes on my Dad's car ourselves so we feel we can get it done.. And this is just temporary to see how we like before having it painted on... And when I have it painted, I'm trying to decide if I want to have LS1, SS, or Blue Devil(that's what I secretly call my car sometimes.. My mom named it Charlotte. ) stenciled out of the stripe so the blue is poking through with the letters...

Ok so I have been doing a lot of speculating as to when I'm going to do a lot of this stuff

But I think I am confident enough to say that by the end of this summer I plan to have these things moved from Wish List to What I have on the Car...

Halo Headlights
White SS Badges(maybe) I have been throwing these up in the air for a while..
BMR Springs(at least the rears by the end of this summer... b/c my front is already pretty low, we shall see what the money looks like)
New Spoiler LED brake light
Headers(a BIG!! maybe lol)

Hopefully I will have enough from cutting grass(this is all I can find right now haha) to get all this done before the summer if not most of it.. Then my modding will stop so my funds can recuperate.. Hopefullly I can keep the cutting grass thing going for a while haha.. My Dad pays me to cut, and weed eat all of our lawn(front,back yard, and a big ass lot next to our house) and I have some neighbors I am going to start cutting for.



Now back to our regularly scheduled ing of things we want to do to our cars!

Little update. I will be ordering my Rear Lowering Springs probably next week. I think I am going to go with BMR unless I can find somewhere that sells Konis springs for a good price.

Anybody got a link to some?? I don't remember seeing them on WS6 Store??

Do you mean Strano's?

I wasn't aware of Koni making springs for LS1's... If so, http://www.stranoparts.com/partdetai...=113&ModelID=7

$249 for all 4. That's the same as WS6store sells BMR's

My Dad put my stripe on for me today!! It looks really good. He said they are some wrinkles in it because the humidity wouldn't let the stripe slide around that well, but I don't mind it because this was put on so we could see how I liked it before we have it painted on. I'm ready to see it when I get home Friday! Sorry these are his cell phone pics. I will tell him to go out tomorrow and use my camera to take some better ones!

So i'm thinking ssome stuff up... I seem to do a lot of that lol..

Since I already have a cat-back.. why not just buy the SLP LM1 Resonator off of their website, have the local muffler shop cut the Magnaflow muffler off and weld in the resonator? Can this be done? I know I will have to get an adapter of some sort(which they will probably have) to bring the pipe in to the resonator and to go to the passsenger side pipe.. I just love my tips i have and didnt wanna give them up..

For the SLP LM1 cat-back i will be paying about $400, versus this $80 and probably $50-100 at the muffler shop, so prob around $150 or so...

What do you think, and will it work?

Thanks. BTW I LOVE my stripe.. Can't wait to get it painted!

I dunno, you'll just need to worry about the section of pipe where the muffler was.. traditionally the LM resonator is placed before the axle, so if you cut out the muffler and splice the resonator in before the axle you would just need to worry about getting that fixed up.

quick question.. your stripe is vinyl correct? where did you get it, and how much did it cost you? lol

Well if I did put it before the axle I'm sure they can weld a piece of pipe that goes between the two tips. Like it comes out of the single pipe into like a Y with one going towards the passenger tip, then the other leading into the pipe that goes to the drivers side tip..

and yes it is vinyl. Here is the link to the place. http://www.graphic-express.com/03_gm...98-02_ss_b.asp

I think total it was about 70 bucks with shipping.. Not bad.. compared to Hawks wanting $100...

Looks really good man, doesn't look too hazy.. white just isn't the most reflective color

how are the "wrinkles" you were talking about? I know with my grand sport stripes the bubbles went away after they had been out in the sun for a week or so..

They are still there

But since I think we are going to paint the car within the next month, I'm not worried about it... Some did go away though while it was outside...

Can't wait to see what yours looks like.

Berger Panel?? Should I do it...



Also just got back in from fixing my fenders... The common problem from jacking in the wrong spot and making the front fender flare out from the door. 5 minute fix, just take some vice grips to it and pull it towards the car and it lines back up. Looks so much better with it all lined up.

Nah.. NBM won't give you enough contrast and maintaining a flat black paint is very time consuming and a lot of 'watch what you're doing'. My CETA panel has to pat dry and get a coat of detail spray after each wash to prevent scratching.

No clear, no protection. Even on flat vinyl I've heard the issue is the same. TBH I'd try a Sebring Silver/Camaro Silver berger panel and paint your Bowtie and SS badge outlines NBM.

As for the fenders.. I have no clue why people never bother taking the 5 minutes to fix it? Seriously.. there were 4-5 cars at Gratiot (non-club cars that rolled through) and all could have used a little vice grip treatment.
