Thanks everyone!!! it is SO great to be back HOME!!!

So here is what I have managed to install so far in the last few days:

Swapped out the chrome CAMARO script with Black Chrome script!



Installed ACS T3 front fascia!!! Painted by Gary's Customz...perfect paint match!!! There were a couple surprises though that I wasn't expecting. Most likely these surprises have already been addressed elsewhere in the forums, but I will outline them here anyway.






But, these set backs were really nothing cosmic and the final result is awesome!!




and last but certainly NOT least!!! My B A S S!!!
Bad A$$ Sound System!!!

It still needs a few finishing cosmetic touches, but here is sneak preview of the install:

Installing dynamat:


which is pretty easy, yet monotonous work that definitely deserves a frosty beverage break!



Of course, cannot forget to dynamat the doors and install high pass filters in the speakers...thanks to my "sub contractors" -- my hubby Brian and his best friend Bryan! AKA "B Squared" LoL



Sub box with my 12" Infinity Kappy subs installed. Box is from Subthump and had some issues!!! I will create a separate thread about that though!



Up close shot of the sub:



And the installed box....sounds friggin AWESOME!!!



Still needs the finishing touches around the box, but that will have to wait until she gets back from the body shop!! She is getting her face lift this week!!! More to pics to follow!!!

Thanks guys!!! Yep, I didn't waste any time getting to work on my baby!! I had spent the last 9 months with visions of mods dancing through my head!! LoL!

She is now at the body shop getting the MPD1 Z Force hood and MPD1 rear spoiler painted/installed and rally stripes painted on to replace the vinyl stripes. It was hard to say good bye to her when I dropped her off, but she is gonna look AMAZING when I pick her up in a few days!!!

In regard to you front cover bolt issue,

Did you lose the cage nuts off of the cover? Here is a picture of what should be there. Im a stickler for having the right stuff holding your car together.

ha ha...yea, I got them on there now...I talked to Gary...he told me there should have been instructions in the box......ummmmmm....there may have been instructions but I think I may have just thrown them away because I had removed the fascia before to install my grilles and assumed it was gonna be the same!! LoL!

BTW, paid a visit to Ms Scarlett today...she is doing FANTASTIC!! Even half way done she looks PHENOMENAL!! They said your Z Force hood is the best fit they have seen on an after market hood and were very impressed!! They were getting ready to start the stripes. I got a couple snap shots:







AND it was comforting seeing Scarlett was in good company! :

Donna, are they not doing any 2K primer on the hood? I would never paint directly on gelcoat.

Nice looking 63 Vette!

I am assuming they will do the 2K primer. These guys have come highly recommended...they are the best in town! But I will certainly check to be sure!

Yea, that Vette is gorgeous!! I didnt snap a shot of the engine bay, but it is as pristine as the rest of the car!

That looks killer....

Scarlett is definitely Smokin'

The T3 plus the hood (and rear spoiler) and drop and... really make her standout.
