This is an awesome story. Your family took great care of you and your Camaro. Rich and Eric at Back Street are now extended family. The word family keeps coming up for good reason. We are proud to be a small part of it.

Thank you, clean was the goal. Wanted the beauty of the Camaro speak for itself, and then let the LS3 back it up. Got some plans for the motor when I get back.

Rich at Backstreet set the ride height based off of clearances, not off of intended measurements, and then aligned it accordingly. Function over form, so I don't know the exact drop.

Be careful if you ever upgrade tunnel and chasis brace! My rear is the same height but my front is a little higher yet I still bottom out occasionaly when entering parking lots....

Nice. I was pretty close to pulling the trigger on a white one. Was too lazy to drive back to that dealer, so I got a different color to a dealer a lot closer.

BTW a HAVOK rear diffuser would add that extra WOW to the car.

You're not the first person to tell me that. I was planning on keeping the body stock, but maybe I'll have to look into that. If it's "subtle" enough, who knows...

Thanks for the comments!

You will rarely find someone who wants to tell you something that will make your car look better than theirs.

Car looks great, congrats on COTW!! Where did you get the header wrap, and how much of a pain was it to wrap them?

Thanks for the compliment!

Header wrap was a DEI Kit from Summit, on recommendation from Paul at Stainless Works. Took me about 6 hours to do both headers. My Dad helped for a bit, but he had to run halfway through the first one, so probably wouldn't have taken so long with 2 sets of hands. You just have to take your time, don't rush it, and carefully plan your lengths and how you're going to tie everything in, so it looks like one seemless piece and you get good coverage. If something doesn't fit or look good, unwrap it, and do it again. The primaries got kinda tricky at the one collector, they got close and then opened up again. I didnt' want to have that much open space in the middle of them, so I had to get a little creative during the process. The one side actually has 4 seperate pieces of wrap to create the coverage on the seperation, but because of the way I laid everything out and planned the wrapping order, it all looks like one piece, and I didn't have to use any additional ties. You can see on the bottom left of the pic, right before the collector.



I was very please the way everything turned out. Thanks!
