I'm actually going to the Camaro Nationals in Laural MD. Thanks for the invite though. Too bad it won't workout, would be good to chill.

Thanks Chris! Lol, I'm glad you like it, you were a big help in sketching this thing out. I'm glad it meets expectations. I do look forward to seeing this thing in person.

Final things left to do...

The tuner is doing some final tweaks.
Adjustments to make the airbag sensors without the stock seat still function properly.
Rear Black Out Posts between the taillights.
Wet-sand and clean up
Rear Gill Decals and Badging

Then it's shipping time.

Thanks guys - It's great to see all the positive feedback for this car. It's looking like I might be getting the car in Ohio (Cleveland Area) since I'll be there this weekend for memorial day, then driving it back home. Should be a nice drive. Hopefully everything is finalizing today and on schedule.

We have run into a SnaFu with the seats. 2012 models and up have a sensor in the drivers seat that can't seem to be bypassed like the passenger seat. So long story short, no airbag system. Which is ok for the track with this setup, but not good for daily driving. To be safe we are going to keep the stock seats in, so that all the safety mechanisms function properly. During track days, the race seats can be swapped in.

I'm driving back from Ohio with this car, it's wise to play it safe, and I'm a new father, so safe it is.

When I do sell the car the racing seats will be part of it as it's easy to sawap in and out, however, for now pics will have the stock seats inside.

The headrest still says ZL600, but will be changed out in the future.

Correct, in fact the harness bar, cross bar, and front side bars, are all easily removable for daily driving.
