Well I put some miles on the car this weekend before the rain came & I must say with the Pedders & other suspension mods the car is on rails, especially at 120mph+ !!! Thanks Pete @ Pedders for your help with dialing it in, I can only assume it'll be even better once we install the eccentric Alignment Bolt kit this week.

Also, a major announcement... I just got off the phone with Gary from Gary's Customz & I'm now getting the ZL1 front bumper & it's been paid in full, so now I just have to wait for Gary to get the call that more fascias are in.



This obviously means that I'll have an extra SS front end with the mailslot delete done, so that will be up for sale in the near future. If anyone is interested, it'll be on a first come first served basis. So hit me up if you want it. I would prefer someone in the Central/SoCal area but I will be able to ship using the same box that my new bumper comes in, you'll just have to pick up shipping charges. But I'll cross that bridge when the new one comes.

Here's some pics from Saturday








Sorry, little dirty, haven't had a chance to detail yet using all my Adam's products




Black Onyx Gauge Bezels & Shift plate from Emblempros








Again, thanks to everyone for all the support! More pics to come, I want to post some of the pictures from the Valentine 1 Radar system install in my rearview mirror & roof liner pod...It works great

Looking good.

I'm on the opposite coast, but I'll definitely entertain the idea. It can't hurt to ask anyway... Sending PM.

Well this sure was a pleasant surprise, coming home and seeing an email reply to my build but in the title I saw COTW and then I log on and see this GREAT HONOR!!!! Not sure how a Camaro is picked for this honor, but I'm certainly not going to complain & I feel honored to be among some of the finest Camaros on the planet!

Special thanks to AquaBlue99 for his constant support of my long & tedious build, SummoneR, AngelSpeedFreak & Tom D for always answering my PM's instantly, Pete @ Pedders, Eric @ MPD1, Jordan @ JPD Motorsports, the guys at AAC, Rick Hill of SLP, Paso Robles Chevy & their great team, Roger @ Emblem Pros, Lupe at River City Creations and Thank you to everyone here for making this
the best Camaro Forum on the net, this is such a great place, filled with great people with a common interest & a HUGE WEALTH of knowledge....I sincerely am honored! I've won trophies before in IASCA contests back when I had my Vette, but this Car of the Week takes the cake! I'm really proud that my efforts & the efforts of my main sponsor & good friend Ray @ Extreme Auto Works have been recognized by the powers that be.....You've really made my day, week, month, year!!! I moved here to Cali from the South Jersey area exactly a year ago this week, and it hasn't been the greatest year for me, and getting this car and doing the build has helped ease my transition and this honor on my year anniversary in Cali is simply awesome!!!

Thank you again to everyone involved & keep up the great work on the best forum on the internet!

(That sure felt like an Acadamy Award speech)

More good things to follow, since I'm doing the Pedders Eccentric Bolts (Alignment Kit) we called Jordan at JDP and he's sending us out some Pfadt Front Radius Arm Bearings & Rear Upper Control Arm Inner Bushings to replace the stock ones with. Thanks Jordan! So we'll be documenting that swap out towards the end of the week & then it's the ZL1 front bumper swap from Gary's Customz, so everything will be fully documented. In my excitement I forgot to take pics of the V1 system, so definitely tomorrow! I'll also respond to all who PM'd me about my front bumper.

Kronix, you ever get a hold of Chris for your black chrome stuffs? If not send me a PM and I can give you his email. He's usually pretty quick to respond to emails.

I was really excited about getting my Borla S Type Cat Backs and Hurst Short Throw this Friday but after reading and drooling over this thread for some reason I'm just not so excited anymore:( Haha. Even if I had that kind of cash to dump into mine I still don't think I would have the patients you have had. Amazing build and amazing car!!! Great Job!!!

P.S. Did you change the day time running lights bulb out to match the HID lights? If so what bulbs match the best? Thanks!

To anyone that may have checked the thread from last night up to just now and didn't see any pictures, it seems that I "exceeded my bandwidth" on Photobucket so my pictures were not viewable, I apologize....I just upgraded to a Pro Account, what a crock of shit! But hey nothing's for free anymore right!

J, don't say that bro, every Camaro is a work of art & your's sound sick as well! Those aren't cheap upgrades you're doing either amigo, and you'll love the new rumble of the exhaust and the Hurst! I was lucky mine came with the Hurst ST from the dealer....When I lived back in NJ I had a 31' Fountain fishing boat that would cost $1000 to fill her up, so when I sold it when I moved to Cali, I figured I'd be saving quite a bit of money for a new toy...hence the SS...I'm sure your car will be just as hot bro! To answer your question, yes the DRL/Fogs have been upgraded to the AAC P13W Plasma lights http://www.automotivelightstore.com/P13.aspx

Thank you again!

Kronix.....Well--that might just answer my question...I need to see the cowl on that beast...I thought I saw some badging....what I saw was pretty cool, but I need some "up and close".

Anyone ever tell you you have a nice car?---Yea, well---Nice car!!!!.....

Any worries about voiding your warranty while doing all of these upgrades? I've seen some of your comments on having them done by Chevrolet (or SLP?) but in the end, will Chevrolet give you any trouble over the upgrades? I thought that adding a supercharger voided the power train warranty as well.
