Lets see.
08/02/2013 Drive into the Spradley Dealership with a 2006 Monte Carlo SS, drove out with a 2012 Camaro 2LT (an upgrade for sure)
08/03/2013 Drove it to work and back (huge rainstorm in Southern Colorado, made the last 1/4 mile to my house real muddy.
08/04/2013 Drove it to work where the heavy rain covered the road with more mud, yay (make sure you do that yay sarcastically in your head).

First day off I am going to drive around in it for more than 30 minutes.

He even carries emergency transportation when his car's accelerator sticks and he crashes.

Bow tie install... Scared to death drilling into the rear emblem. Thanks to all here at the forum. The DYIs are perfect, the advice sound!

Can I ask why you need to drill into the rear emblem? Did I miss something?

Drilled into the "Gold" section of the emblem. Drilled into it about 1/4 inch with a pilot drill, then a larger drill. Broke out the Gold section with a small screwdriver, cleaned out the 3m tape and installed the aluminum black bow tie...

Cool, looks good! I had put Baer brakes on my 4th gen & the front rotors went from a stock 11" to 13" & it made a huge difference. I thought that the 5 gens kept the stock size ( I believe they're 14"???). Looks great! Bet it'll help a whole lot on a road track with those holes & slots. My stock 4th gen brakes were toast after the 2nd corner

Re-Installed my Street Scene lower grill with ducts. If anyone orders this grill, immediately throw out the speed nuts and screws they send. They are absolutely worthless. I drove to Indy and back this weekend 120 miles. 3 of the 6 screws and speed nuts were gone. The other 3 were barely holding it. I replaced them with small machine screws and lock nuts. Would have saved myself from disassebling the front end for the second time. Otherwise, I think the grill looks awesome!

This past weekend at fest, I got my USWForged Crossover wheels, wrapped in Nitto NT05's 315's out back and 275 in front. Matt from USWForged was awesome to deal with and brought the setup to Camaro5Fest for me.
