trouble with Powder

Sturgis is quickly approaching and I needed to have my wheels redone because the UV lights (called the sun) gave my wheels a "yellowish" feel. I took them back to the or wheel guys to get redone. They redid them again and sat them outside... I be dammed if they didnt turn a yellowish again.


After the 2nd time of "whatever these guys were using" I told them to strip the wheels down again "chemically" and give them back to me so I can take my wheels to a different powder coating place to have them made white again.



ZBLUES has another appointment in the shop on the 21st for final mods (or maybe close to final mods) before we head to Sturgis...so it looks like I will only have time to make the wheels white (without the blue stripe) before sturgis. I also have to find a new shop to do them because the original shop wants nothing to do with these wheels (even if it is just painting the blue part) at this point.

CarHenge

I was lucky and was able to get ZBlues back together the day before heading to sturgis for the Camaro Rally. We stopped at CarHenge on the way out there. If you try hard enough, you can work your car thru the barrier to get a good photo.

Cross Membe

Also got the engine cross member put on the NIGHT before Sturgis about 11pm at night. Of course I waited until the daylight to take the photo.

This build is awesome! I would have never thought a blue ZL1 insert with a white Camaro would look good, but it looks amazing! I love everything you've done, subscribed

When I tough I saw every possible design, my heart stop when I saw this thread! this car is so beautifully done that there's no words to describe it! I can't wait to see it at the Fest! I imagine the interior is going to have a make over too! Myself I go with white & blue leather seats with blue carbon fiber trims to match the engine!

Strugis was a hit

I got the car back just in time to pack up and head to sturgis. The trip there was exactly that...a trip...lol. With cruise speeds of 101 and me hitting the gas for a small boost to 156mpg (and she wasn't even breathing hard) we made it to sturgis.

I got to autocross Zblues with a respective time of 42.87 (was my best time)


met some new friends and friends I was already friends with on Facebook. Scott Settlemire from GM personally came up to me and chose ZBlues out of 227 Camaro's in the "show and shine" as the car he would take back to Detroit with him if he could. So he awarded me with "Best of Show."



Not bad for Zblues first actual car show. After Sturgis when people ask me about Zblues I tell them this. "It's like being married to a super model who is an MMA chamption. She looks amazing on the runway but can flat out kick your ass." I don't know really any better way to explain it.

Congrats on the win. Hands down one of my favorite Zl1s on here. Very subtle yet eye catching changes.

WOW!!!

Well,,,I was going to compliment you and the ZBlues, but there are no more words to describe her...

Maybe just one...WOW!!!...

Not many make my WOW club, but this would be right at the top....

Congrats, she is a definite winner...
