Yes, the Badges, Gill Decals, and a few minor items are going to be finalized next week post dyno, then final QC check and then on the road it goes. I should have some really good photos and a vid on the dyno sometime next week.

Thanks guys, always appreciate the positive feedback! It is really coming together nicely. The final product should be done this week. I'm hoping no delays.

Hey John - Thanks for reaching out, also thanks for reaching out a bit back when I posted the initial sale. I'm sorry I didn't get back directly. There was so much supportive PMs and posts I did a broadcast post a page or so back. Yes, I am still looking to sell. My goal is to enjoy it for a couple months and take it to the Camaro Nationals as promised then find the right buyer. I'm going to shoot you a PM.

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.
