Speechless!

How does your car ride lowered an inch and sitting on 22s?

Thanks guys! Just ironing out some finishing touches on it...Nothing in the aftermarket world is a "perfect fit" Right Paul!!! LOL!!! Thanks for all your help with that issue, again! Pierre, you made the right move getting the AF gauge to the mix, definitely want that since you're going with the Maggie!

Aquablue, thanks so much for being my biggest supporter!! I appreciate it and once I get all the custom badging done & get too detail it and take some nice shots, I'll definitely submit it for COTW!! It would be an honor with all these awesome Camaros on this forum.

J666, there's noo rubbing whatsoever, I made sure of that before I decided to go with 22s, plus with the Pedders coilovers I have full adjustability in ride height also. I also upgraded all the stock bushings to urethane so that gets riid of all the sloppy mush feel, so the car is very solid. I'll be heading to the shop in a few to pick it up and give it a good couple of hours behind the wheel. We still have to add the Pedders Eccentric Bolt kit to really dial it in for the Pedders Aggressive street alignment, but I'm going to see how the ride height is, handling, etc...Yesterday we moved one of the pulley's over per Ted Jannetty's recommendation, and that really tightened up the belt. It's amazing what a great tuner can see from pictures...Great job Ted & your other recommendations will be following shortly!

I'll be back with hopefully some more pics & a ride report....Thanks again for the positive comments all & the support with my build, everyone here has been so helpful & fantastic!!!

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.
