Well, they aren't on constraint or anything. It's just every Camaro with the RS package and the ZL1 uses these lamps. Not to mention how many other GM vehicles as well. They're just hard to come by quickly. Gary ordered them a week ago and hopefully they come in this next week.

If you want to re use non RS foglights there is some fabrication involved. We, Gary and I, decided that structurally it would be better to just get the right lights in there.

The ZL1 fogs are in there. That's the lower hole. Just missing DRLs

I got my sideskirts coming in today. My wife and I were debating leaving them black (non painted). This was the best profile of SIM I could find.

I has no PS or the skills to use it. Could someone that visits PS the side skirts on this picture black so I could see what it would look like? I'd use microsoft paint, but that would look as bad a can of spray paint.

Thanks!

Thanks all for the well wishes and support. It's been a rough spell. I've still a ton of things that have to get done. But, at least I'm at the house to do it.

I received my sideskirts from Maureen on Monday after I had gotten the news. So those sat in the living room until today. Gary sent me my lights and those were waiting on me as well. So I took some time today and installed all of it. I like the look of the sideskirts in black.

I had to cut the plug off of my foglight wiring and wired in a H11 connector for the ZL1 foglights. Easy to do and works perfectly.

Maureen, thanks so much for the goody bag. She sent me some towels, a hat, a signed Hot Wheel car and a bag to put it all in. Very nice and I'll be keeping it in the car with me.

Thanks. I am soooo looking forward to F Body and August. I'm buried at work I see, and really zero motivation to get moving on anything.

I'll try to get some more pictures further away from the car. Friend at work thinks it's taking on a fighter plane look.
