Thanks guys. The bumper really changes the look of the car. Vanquisher, just make sure you're ready to pay for the installation costs. They'll suprise you.

Sorry I haven't been posting pics recently mgaspari. Been moving into my new house. Pics of that coming soon to the off topic section, but I will be cleaning up the car and taking some new pics soon. I'll pm you when I get them uploaded.

IBM Camaro, I appreciate the flattery. =) I posted a little while ago in your build thread. When I responded to the wheel thread, I thought that was the build thread. I found the actual build thread and read it start to finish. Love your car, and hopefully I get to see it in person at the fest.

Mindz your car has played a huge role in the modding of my car, i wouldve never done black wheels if it wasn't for you. take a look at my build journal when you get a chance
My next mod is to get orange calipers like you, not sure if im going to get brembos or just powdercoat them orange.

When my car is back up and running, I might, or I may transfer the calipers. see below.

Yeah Yeah, Your car is driveable, that's all I can say.









Well folks, it appears that I am going to need to do at the very least a shortblock rebuild. The engine starts up and runs, but the ticking noise is disconcerning and I am not going to drive it, or start it up until I'm able to pull the heads. I don't have 6k lying around so I can't afford to have the car towed to a shop to open it up for me, and my stepfather is going to help me pull the engine to open her up come July. That's quite a ways away so I have made the decision to either sell my car or trade it in and snatch up a Z28. It's been a very hard decision to make, but I feel that it's time to move forward. I'm not a fan of the hood and front bumper, but those are easily changed to the 2010 I hope. If you know anyone interested in purchasing Blue Rush as is, please direct them my way. Now's your chance to own a car that's appeared on the cover of a magazine!
