It has begun...

As promised, here are some pictures of the car disassembled, getting ready for paint.












Some shots of the current Engine/Tranny build






And shelves and work tables filled with all my parts old and new.

It ended up being a coin left in the middle console. DOH!

I'm really looking forward to it as well! I just had a long discussion with them, and there are some adjustments being done. Will have some updates soon...

My custom illuminating door sills (Orange Lighting) arrived today from Emblempros (thanks Roger!) Looks good, can't wait to see them installed and lit up. Should be good.

Not the best pic, will have more when they are on the car.

Yep, almost a complete tear down. This is a true paint conversion. With everything that is being done, it probably won't be complete until early May I think. It's going to seem like a lot longer. But it's being done right and with care, so I prefer quality or quickness in this case. They are going to be sending pics along the way which will be really neat to see the whole process.

RPM Roll Bars

So we have decided that it would be a good time and a good idea to go ahead and install a 6 point roll bar. However since I would like to retain the weekend driving experience and rear seats I needed to find a setup that could allow for some removable bars. I've been working with Tim at RPM roll bars and he is making a set with the harness/shoulder bar removable as well as a removable cross bar for my track days. The door bars are swing out and are removable as part of his standard setup. These are going to be painted Hugger Orange to match.

Here are some pics from RPM of their build on a camaro.







Here is what it would look like with Sport seats, in this case Recaros.

If it's done by May... Are you thinking on going to GM Nationals? That's a trophy winner for sure! And I can take a look in person before the Fest...

He's going to be @ Camaro Nats in Frederick w/ the SLP booth. Wish SLP & him both would be up at the GM Nationals though.

Monchy - Phoenix is correct, I'll be at the Camaro Nationals this year. I'll be inside one of the buildings representing SLP in their booth. Another C5 member ZL600FK will be there as well with his IOM ZL600 with white stripes (sweet ride!).

I do want to make it up to the GM nationals one of these years as I've never been. I think from what I've heard, GM nationals obviously has a wider variety of cars and perhaps more events, where Camaro Nationals is of course just Camaros of all gens and more show like. I have to say I saw some of the most pristine Camaros there, especially the 1st gens.

If you somehow make it down to Frederick, definitely stop by and say hi. That goes for all C5ers!

RPM is just a Hr & 1/2 from me I talked to him and looked at one of his cages at a show. They are very very nice you will love it. I would have one but my kids ride in the back all the time so that doesn't work.
