Better make your way to Indiana....I bought an SLP #100041 today from Stage3camaro.com. It will ship stripped. I have made arrangements with Mike Weatherholt at Hubbard GM Center to "squirt" it ABM...
Now how much excitement can one guy take???-------

Worked tonight on BlueL99!

I worked on BlueL99 tonight and got quite a few things done. Still no headrests or floor mats....
What a beautiful day and evening. It was 53 degrees here in Indiana--pretty good for January 10th. Fired up the furnace in the garage and spent some quality time with the girls!!

Defenderworx Chrome Shifter...Painted CAMARO red. Needs to dry. Should look pretty cool...

Pedals from Southern Car Parts. I am real proud of the color. I can hardly wait for the floor mats to get done...they should compliment the pedals perfectly....

I purchased a chrome dip stick from RPI Designs. Looks alot better than the yellow one....

Oh man that car is coming along real sweet, love how you do your own old school style with the accenting color of red, your car is one of a kind, even though it's a 5th gen like all ours, you have definitely made it your own for sure! Damn nice job!

Thanks my friend! What a nice thing to say.. The shifter grip turned out just GREAT!! I will be getting it installed this weekend.

Also, I just heard from Stage3 and the spoiler is shipping direct from SLP and should arrive Monday or Tuesday..Then it goes straight to Hubbard GM Center for it's color....CAN'T WAIT.....

You are truly a Jedi Master of life. My wife tells me almost every day to take it easy and slow down! I had many difficulties as a kid and have a lost childhood i am trying to regain today!

Some interior work!

Next I installed the Defenderworx Auto Shifter as well as a Defenderworx cup holder stainless surround....I really like the way the red paint stands out on the pistol grip. I had some trouble in getting the shifter to release the keylock. I then read the instructions--As Tim Taylor says, "Real men don't read instructions". Well, low-and-behold it is now working as they said it would.--Go figure!---....

I am still waiting on the headrests and the floor mats. I am going to check with Stacey tomorrow....Oh well--It will definitely be worth the wait...

Spoiler Time!!

Now comes the spoiler. Well I don't have it yet, but wanted to get ready for it's arrival. UPS should deliver it tomorrow. Then it is off to Hubbard's Body Shop to get it's color. I have the CGM Rally Stripes to put on it as soon as I get it home! I could have it done by the end of the week. That will be so cool.........

She sure does look sick without one, huh??....

Graphics for Floormats and Headrests!

First of all a special THANK-YOU to Lynn Deno for having a beautiful establishment such as Lynn's Embroidery & Graphics. And what can be said for Stacey Tate. She simply knows what you want done. Stacey's knowledge of the machines and her working her magic gives you exactly what will look outstanding....

Oh, BTW, it doesn't hurt that Stacey and her husband really like blue camaros...both 1968 and 2010. I promised her she could drive them when at the weekly cruise-in around the courthouse square this summer!!....

How nice is this!!

This is a copy of what will be on the floormats. Stacey is to embroider this on a grey piece of leather. I will then take that to Adair's Shoe & Leather Shop. Tom will then sew the leather to the floormats...

As far as the headrests, Stacey will shrink the file on the PC to fit the headrests. I simply will sleep standing up until they are done. I can only imagine how they will turn out!!.....

By the way, Lynn does many different things with embroidery, graphics, etc. Her website... www.lynndeno.com

Give her a call or email her lynn@lynndeno.com I am sure she will accommodate you and your needs!!!

I will keep all posted as things progress

Thanks....aquabluel99.....

Spoiler Time!!

I received my spoiler today from SLP Muscle Car Central. I removed the stock one last night getting ready to mock-up the new one. After fitting and working the mounting holes slightly, it found it's way to Mike Weatherholt and his crew at Hubbard GM Center in Monticello for ABM paint. He advised me it would be ready for the CGM rally stripes by no later than Friday--That is going to look pretty sweet compared to the original.....
