As much as I would like to do them I would just do them Black and they really wouldn't change much. Maybe in the future but for now its to much work. I actually had to remove the Strut tower brace to remove and install the manifold. Luckily I was able to get to the Bolts and flange nut on the brace without having the remove the tires.

Just realized I never posted Pictures of my paint correction so figured I would post them up now. I used all Adam's products and think I did a great job for my first time around. Three are still some smaller scratches but most are now gone,

Here's a before:




And now after:






These are after the sealant, glaze and wax

So today I finished my 1LE Separator install today. Kind of glad to get rid of that huge and ugly clean side PCV line from the engine bay. Here are some pictures of the install

I'm assuming you have the tendor connected to the positive terminal and negative post and assuming you leave the battery connected too?

Need to figure out how I can store my car this winter without disconnecting the battery so I don't have problems again with the emissions part of inspection with all my systems not ready.

Well since there is no negative post I use the stud that is left over after you install a CAI and I use that as ground/negative. If you need a picture I can get one for you. And I do also leave my battery connected All the time. A battery tender just keeps the battery at a full charge instead of charging it

I am amazed in what you have done with your car. I was kind of disappointed in getting a V6 cause of the lack of attention it gets compared to the SS but you car looks awesome after 3 years. Keep it going. I am officially going to subcribe to this journal.

The emblem looks good. I am sure it will look great installed. I cant add one to mine as that is where my HUD contorls are.

Finally got my GTO clutch Reservoir installed with the bracket I made thanks to a few members on the site. I also changed out the brake and clutch fluid to Motul RBF600.
