finally updated my signature pic, but it's still not reflecting the current look since i fixed the halo in the driver's side and dropped the dealer plate covers for simple black ones :/ oh well, always more to do...

got the news that the Navy finally is getting rid of the stickers! one more month and i can take those damn eyesores off

Wow that is one sick looking 1LE. I am not a fan of rear louvers but it looks great on your ride!

Ozzy I need advice. Your build inspired me to go ahead and considered the hex hood vents. How much did you get them for ? What website ? Any discount codes ? I found them in phastekperformance for $375 plus $10 extra for having a strut tower . Do they really work if it rains!? How much dirty does your engine bay gets???

Did u get the vents that work with strut tower!? And how long for install ?

Lio,
I ordered my vents from hexvents.com, they're a vendor here as well. If you've got a coupon code from phastek you might come out ahead.
I don't keep my guards in, only when i wash the car...as for how much dirt gets in the bay, I really can't tell ya. I keep her in the garage all week, so my car stays pretty clean overall anyway.
Time required...IIRC, it took me about 4 hrs, I think? I took my time, and a liberal amount of breaks as well, so your time may vary. The instructions provided with them are very well-written and easy to follow if you watch the install video on their site beforehand.

In other news - I finally got my last halo from AAC!! only, ya know, THREE MONTHS LATER. jeez, that was an ordeal...i wrote them every other week at a minimum, and it was always "i hope we get more in soon" until i finally wrote them a nasty-gram last week. I was being told that they didn't have the correct size to send me, but the one in the box tonight looks like it's right. I went to the garage and put it up in front of my headlight, and it looks like I should be good to drop the bumper and FINALLY finish this project this weekend!

:belly roll:

Well...somehow I found out about the pre-sale on the pfadt tri-Y headers, and floridaspeedandpower still had them on sale...so it looks like I've got headers coming
I liked everything I read about them, and the sound clip...and there was a free shipping option (a big consideration for the island). Just hope I don't wind up with orders to California for my next duty station!

oh, i also spent the day working on the car, since this is my first day of leave in a while...removed my center console and saw that my drill bit into the wiring harness for the yaw sensor, not the sensor itself. it broke one of the wires right behind the terminal, so i need to get a new harness/terminal. my dad is looking into it for me tomorrow when he goes into work. if the damage was a little cleaner, i'd probably try to rebuild it myself, but since i'll be out of the country travelling for a little while anyway, i'll go this route instead.
also found some wire loom at o'reillys earlier when i went to get more electrical tape, and cleaned up the look of the wires for the front end lighting in the engine bay and beneath my control box. tomorrow i'm going to try to finish wiring my abl to the 3 way switch and reinstall the console

eagerly awaiting delivery of my pfadt tri-y headers this week. Matt over at FSP told me they were delayed due to exhaust clamps, but still went out last week. hoping tomorrow, maybe??

finally got my clutch reservoir too...i know, i've put this one off for a long time...but i finally got it, and now i need to decide when to install. this week, obviously, since i'm on leave through the rest of the week...

Great build! I love seeing yellow Camaros that don't have the cliche bumblebee theme. Yours for sure looks great! Keep up the great work!

Thanks, I keep telling myself the next mod will be the last, but...apparently I'm a liar and a sucker
even with all that I've done, I still get the bumblebee comments...

Planning for tomorrow...either Newb or one of my work buddies is gonna come with and double check me, since I've never done headers myself. Gonna go out tonight and get the various little extras needed. I also got my clutch separator kit to do as well

newb and i got the pfadt tri-y's installed this morning...took just under 4 hours. loving the new sound...couple of minor issues tho.
- immediately threw a CEL, even though the thread announcing the pre-orders said they wouldn't throw codes. not a huge deal, at this point i was planning to tune afterwards anyway...
- fitment wasn't as great as advertised. it was still good, but there was a firewall bolt underneath that was going to be beating the passenger side cat (fixed with a hacksaw blade), and there's a little nub on the steering that's rubbing the driver's side rear tube when i turn. so i'm about to go fix that.
these fitment issues could be things caused just by every car being a little different, and are still relatively minor in the long run, but newb said he didn't have anything like that with his kooks.
oh well, i'm not unhappy. should be an easy fix. and i still saved ~$150 going this route.
pics and vids will follow soon.

also, big thanks to Newb for providing the knowledge this morning! it would have taken me considerably longer, since i'd never done headers myself, and the only photo in the instructions was showing to knock off the nub prior to putting the HFCs on

passenger side...


driver side...


this was just close enough to be annoying...and not enough room to work a whole hacksaw, so i had to use just the blade

Kewl... I had to slide the rubber boot up on the steering knuckle to keep my dynatechs from burning it up. You could run with that cell without hurting anything.

Bet you are really loving the sound now!!!!
