Thanks Jim, I saw that you did your own heritage grill. Was it real difficult to do? I am more worried about possibly damaging or cracking the paint on the bumper.

It isn't too difficult if you go slow and have patience. I had a big padded bed spread I put out on the garage floor and then I carried it to the living room and finished it on soft terry towels sitting on the carpet. I went very slow and took photos along the way and it took me about 4 hours. Another guy and I did his for the first time attempt and together the two of us did it in 3 hours or thereabouts. Extra hands helps but I did it alone. I watched the video someone posted so I could get a good visual first. It will look fantastic. I got mine from Becky and Maureen and it was match painted IOM. It arrived quickly from them.

Just installed a larger transmission pan and got to use my new dip stick. I also changed the rear end fluid with Royal Purple. I also changed the rad. fluid.

Have a great week everyone.

It seems as though I won't be able to get my Camaro out this year. LOL... It just plain will not stop snowing here this spring. The average high is now 60 degrees, but we are stuck in the 30's and low 40's with snow or cold rain. This is getting really old. I have not gotten her out onto the highway since last October.
On another note, I registered for the big Camaro Rally at Sturgis, SD. The rally is the last weekend in June and looks like it should be a great time. They have plenty of events set up including two poker runs. It is about a 12 hour drive from here to Sturgis, but hitting the road in my Camaro - I'll have a smile on my face the whole way.
Hope the rest of you have better weather.
Steve

Rainy weekend. Was going to the Tiger Drive-In for Hot Rod night but not with this weather. They are showing Iron Man 3. Not many drive-ins around anymore.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Sorry to hear about the nasty weather Bill! With the fires nearby here our weather has been smoke filled wind. We may have rain come in tomorrow which would be a fireman's blessing.

My wife and I are taking off this afternoon with some friends to celebrate my friend's 50th birthday and my belated 50++ birthday. My buddy Ken is a super master Nissan mechanic as well as parts manager at our local Nissan Dealer. His only downfall is NOT owning a Camaro! He loves mine....But with access to a GTR on a daily basis well... LOL

Be safe and find some fun while the roads dry out. Take care and good hearing from you!

Jim (and Erica) riding down that long lonesome highway in Orange Krate! :P

HOWDY!
Hey you all hear that someone near and dear to us has ordered her THIRD Camaro? Anyone want to venture a guess as to who that is? I guess I am going to have to retire from my current job and become a Chevrolet sales persona! Now there is a clue. Oh... I hear it is a 1LE too. Hmmm makes me want to order a Z28 just because.

Have a good rest of the week. JIMBO and Orange Krate

PS - New mod finished and being shipped for install real soon! Keep your peepers peeled!

My son is in the US Air Force stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ. He is an aircraft mechanic and crew chief for the A10 Worthog fighter. Tonight at 6:00 PM he went to O'rielly Chevrolet and picked up his 2013 Camaro. He can only afford a 1LS at this time. It is Inferno Orange with a six sipped manual. He has been waiting for about three weeks for this car to arrive at the dealorship. Needless to say he is very excited to finally take possession. Here is the only pic I have so far. Now father and son both have perma-grins.

My son just sent me some more pic's of his Camaro. He went with Limo tint on the back windshield and 35% on the side windows. He says in AZ. the cops don't worry about really dark tint on the back. I would never get away with that in MN.

Getting new tires put on today. I went with Continental ExtremeContract DWS tires. I wanted BFG's but they stopped making the rear. They have a replacement coming out in 2014??? I could not wait that long. My car just went over 30K and the rears are gone.

Nice Bill! Let us know how the new tires stack up next to the Pirellis. I am at 14,500 miles and the P Zeros still look good. I went out two weeks ago and took photos of my Orange Krate and another friends white "Kokane".

Be safe!

The Continental tires are doing just fine. Hope to go on a 600 mile road trip this week. I will know more after that trip. My wife wants to take our van but I want to take the Camaro. We will see.....

Tires did great on the road trip. Now I need brakes soon. Already have Hawks HPS brakes on my bench. Have to measure rotors to see if they can be turned. 30mm is the thickness for the front (28mm rear). Have to find my mics.

Everyone have a great week.

Bill
