Thanks for the kind words, everyone. All of my vendors made it happen, including Jordan, Gene, Steve, Jason, Terry, Athena, Ross, Ray and Tony...and everyone else who I left off this list. Hopefully, I'll be able to add more interior mods next year!

Another tip that I want to give everyone is to purchase some ramps if you need to work on your car, especially if you have a ground effects kits. Jordan from JDP recommended RaceRamps.com. Their ramps are expensive, but they're great and they work very well for my application! I was able to change the dampers on my rear coilovers.

Love the car! Did you have to install wheel spacers to fit the Giovanna Mecca's? There is conflicting info on the C5 forum about these wheels because of the concave design.

No wheel spacers were needed. Wheel Warehouse verified with Giovanna first before I bought them to make sure the offset would work, and it did just fine. The space between the Brembo calipers and spokes on the front wheel was very close, but it cleared.

Thanks, Ivan! It took a lot of detailed planning, and I started planning it even before I bought the car back in January. I also got lucky finding this brand new Camaro which sat on a dealer's lot for 9 months, two states away, before I bought it.
