Thanks Vette TPI! I won't be selling Blue Rush for a long while, and plan on making it a toy/weekend toy wen it's done being a daily driver. Doubt I'll ever sell it unless I have to.

Yup, that sucks. I mean it's a reason to upgrade the internals, but sometimes the timming is horrible.

Thank you Ivan.

I'm making a few calls tomorrow about getting quotes on fixing the car. Hopefully it'll be up and running soon.

Damn, If you lived closer I would help you take it apart. I know some people out here with full out shops that most likely wouldn't charge

Hey J! Sorry to read about your engine man, hope you've had some progress since you last posted :(
I remembered how we talked about painting our interiors awhile ago and how you wanted to keep the paint on the inside...I found this D.I.Y. awhile back and another member with IBM had some great success with it. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=244860
It's my summer project so I'll let you know how it goes!

That's a REALLY cool process. Too bad I don't have the expertise to do it myself. =/

Your build is beyond amazing, and your Camaro is by far my favorite IBM one on here! Awesome job

Thank you Aubrey. I've loved putting this thing together. =)

Finally got a chance to capture the true colors of the brake calipers next to the IBM paint.

After 3.5 years, I wanted to just post a quick before and after collage. Blue Rush has come a long way in just a couple years.

I'm hoping so Tim. Can't really replace the rush but I'm sure going to try.

God that sounds like a junkie in rehab.

Well this weekend is the last show I will be going to before de-modding the car and trading it in. It's been a great experience, and I've met a bunch of new friends. I love this community.
