It's all good. I have a Rebel that I'm trying to get the hang of. But 99% of the pics in this thread are from my IPhone. No joke.

Thanks man. I'm hoping those 3.73's really wake it up. I've heard good things.

Man, I love your ride. So much of what you've done is exactly what I've been considering and it's awesome to see it all right there as an example... the TSW's, the ZL1 rockers and splash guards... it's awesome. Outstanding work, my friend.

Thanks man! I like the subtle aggressiveness. I don't rely like the really loud aggressive stuff.

Thanks again for the kind words!

How hard is it to do the caliper swap? For years I paid people to work on my cars, but over the past few I've started doing my own, though most of my experience is limited to brake jobs and things like that...

It's easy if you have the tools and a place to do it. But calipers are easy anyway. Two bolts hold it on. One for the brake line and just moving all the little hardware from the old to the new. Pretty easy swap.

Calipers look great Denis. Also loving that you have that signature back again, such a good shot.

Thanks man!

If you can, do it! Idk how the roads are by you but if you can I would highly recommend it. Car feels a lot more stable in the turns plus it looks so much better.

Just picked up a TL1 hood insert from a forum member on here for a pretty good price! Right now I think the plan is gloss black. We'll see here in a few weeks.

Do you have to cut the hood or does it just sit on top?
