Just did my Hurst Short Throw Shifter install and I'm loving it. Now I got the damn mod bug so I'll be ordering my intake and ported throttle body.

I nailed what appeared to be a Chupacabra doing a smooth 90mph down a texas highway. Time for a bumper upgrade.

In the process of Plasti dipping the ZL1 emblems. Didn't work to well, unable to peel it off the red in the one. So plan B, I'll just leave them black for now and eventually get them painted. The Plasti-dip worked really well on my new daily driver, the side body molding and the lower rear fascia.

The ZL1 emblems, well that's another story. Going/want to get rid of the white lettering on the license plate holder as well. Gave it a couple coats, not to happy with those results either. I may just color/magic marker the lettering in red. Not sure yet.

I'll post a picture of the ZL1 emblems after I peel off the excess Plasti-dip.
Oh, my husband did figure out a really good way to Plasti-dip a straight line on a large panel. The line on my daily driver is not a badly panel, he just made the line. Looks really good!

Done! All black for now, but I'm blackening out everything anyway, so who knows I may just leave it this way. It's Plasti-dip, can peel it off any time. Still waiting on a few things, catch can, Noweeds, then I'll blacken the tailpipes.

the problem with wood blocks is in your situation the only thing keeping your car from sliding off is gravity and the friction coefficient between your car and the wood.
I bet I could push your car off the blocks just by myself, thats not a safe thing in case of earthquake etc.
thats why wheel chocks are also another thing to use when lifting the opposite end, never trust the parking brake or in park.
plus any sharp protrusions from the chassis into the wood could cause splitting.
Ive used wood blocks to drive on but thats about it.

stay away from the cheapo jackstands and you will be alot safer, I work on heavy trucks for a living and have worked under jackstands probably thousands of times by now.

at home right now I got my other ss on jackstands while I go thru the trans, they are 7 ton norco's and that car has probably stayed on them during various upgrades over a year total
