Wow...almost forgot that we had originally planned to put that in The Sizzle.

Been 24/7 on a build.....
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88233

Got totally sidetracked helping build this car. Most likely we'll work on a new in house build later this year.

There's so much talk in the shop about a LSX511 Build.....

That might change of course,
Ivan

Guess it's been a while....again. LOL

Couple on the road pics and additions!

Recently, both of my Grandparents lost their battles to Cancer a day apart from each other. Completely unexpected and floored, I thought that taking the Camaro on a road trip from New Mexico down to Florida for the services would make things a little easier for me. As hard as it was to deal with the losses, the trip was a great Soul Search for us and our Girls.

I detailed some of the stops in a separate thread and posted some of the pics here:

Painted Engine Cover....

My "artist" nephew does paintwork in between classes and was tasked to create something "blue" on the engine cover.

A week later he came up with this:

Verywell Chris....

So we got to be a part of the KAFB Open House and decided to bring some Camaros out for the public to see.

Couple pictures for y'all! Enjoy!

Actually had a chance to get after a couple things that I'd been meaning to do!!!

First off, I found a knob that I really like and fits great on the LG Short Stick. The one that it comes with is good, but its kinda plain, and I like a pattern or something on mine so I did some research and homework and found that the LG Stick actually accepts all C5/C6 Vette Knobs.....hum.

With that said, I scored a C6 knob and bam...adjusted the height and used the provided setscrew to lock it in. Came out good. Had it in for a good week now and I absolutely love the offset of it and how it feels while doin some spirited driving!

Another thing that you'll most likely be seeing from us is color faced gages. We're working with a great company that has a lot of experience doing this already and come up with some good colors and options.

This is the first of the ones that we got and installed. So far they install in no time at all and are made of the highest quality pieces on the market. They light up just like OEM, but have a great colored face to really give the interior some BAM!

More to come on these Gems but here's some sample pics and a random updated pic.....enjoy!
