COPY CAT! Congrats on your recent delivery. And between 500 and 7500 is when GM will align under warranty. The cars are strapped down on transport trucks and they want the suspension to settle. That's crazy about your R/R tire. Someone fell asleep in Oshawa!

Why dont you keep the Cobalt as a daily?

I'm in the Army. Wife has a car as well and that would make 3. Kinda hard to move 3 cars with 2 people. I'll be stationed somewhere else this time next year and if we get stationed overseas....military only pays to ship 1 vehicle. So we'd have to sell my wife's and rebuy a new car wherever we get. So stupid but what to do? HA

Nice man, that didnt take long at all!! Car looks awesome now, and I think you should get your supercharger installed by the time mine arrives. Still deciding on the tint %. How is your visibility at night with the 20%?

It's FINE. The glass itself comes with a sticker that says minimum 70% visibilty so there seems to be a SLIGHT darkness built into the glass. So the 20% tint I got MAY be a little darker than what 20% SHOULD be.

I went from a 25% on my Cobalt so I'm used to it and I had no problem driving at night. Now, backing into a spot at night with this tint is a tic scary, in part as well bc the visibility in the Gen5 is not that great but still not impossible.

The rear camera helps but takes some getting used to

Looks great, and yea the windows come with a tint from the factory, when I had 35% tint on my side windows when I got pulled over it actually read 27%. Def looks really good.

I've put in for leave 26-30 Nov...I have to get released from this detail and leave approved for those dates. The shop said those dates work for them and that's the plan for the build.

I'm working on 1 or two other things during/after the build that I will share with the site.

Since I have the rear OD I'm going to try and put on a 3.3pulley(that my builder has in stock) with a smaller belt and see if there is any slip :P

Thoughts?

I thought the same thing, but I was told by a dealership that you only get one set of wheels. You're right, the RS package should show a discount when getting the 1LE package. Maybe if enough of us make some noise, GM wil honor a discount. (just hoping ) I think the philosophy behind the packages is the price reflects an upgrade from the base wheels. If they were to offer the package for complete cost of the wheels(hence getting two sets of wheels) then the packages would be a LOT more expensive.

Are you replacing the badges with something else, or leaving it debadged? I don't like the complete debadged look personally. Car looks great though, I like the black and white contrast!

Love the build! I followed you and used some of your vids over on CobaltSS.net. I kept my Cobalt SS/TC as my DD... Couldn't get an offer I liked for it and I couldn't pass up the 35MPG on the freeway (you will quickly notice). I just supercharged my 2SS. You think you are in love now...lol, just wait. Glad to see you make the jump to the Camaro and thank you for your service!- Dan
