Looking good!!!!

It would have been nice if they could have made the grilles removable from the front so you dont have to remove the bumper cover to swap out grilles.

So I lied about waiting until I got back from the salt to remove the rear "bumper" and install the LED reverse lights. I ended up removing it cuz I needed to spray the undercoating behind the bumper.

While I was at it I installed the Oracle LED reverse lights. Major hassle. One of the lights wouldn't allow the weatherpak connector to seat properly. That wasn't too hard to fix. But the other one (left/drivers side) just wouldn't work. I put the incandescent light back in and it worked. Then I pulled the connector plug and found that there was a cold solder joint between the connector and the wire. It had separated.

It was late at night and I was about 3/4 goofy from lack of sleep ...so I didn't get anywhere with it. But this morning, I found that if I wrapped a single strand of copper wire around the connector and the wayward wire, it would hold it in place so I could tin and solder it. Worked like a champ.

Then I put the whole thing back together and it didn't work at all. So I called AAC Style from whom I bought 'em and started going in circles to get a replacement. I'm not sure how it's gonna work out, so I'm gonna suspend any stories about their customer service until it's resolved. But right now, I have the stock light on the left and the LED on the right. Doesn't look too good, but that's the way it is for the moment.

I got the bumper brace and the right rear wheel well coated. Next will either be under the car or the front wheel wells.

Once again, it's progress. Slow, but progress. However, I gotta have all this done in a week so I can take it to the salt flats. I also wanna install the oil separator tank and the new heater hoses before I go.

The fun never stops.

I unhooked my center channel. Just one more thing I wouldn't have known of, without joining C5. Or wouldn't have touched if I did. I don't tinker with expensive things. Owned my Si for 4 years before I put on the 1st sticker. Didn't put on the 2nd till it was paid off.

Anyways without C5 I wouldn't have known about subthump and I would still be disappointed with my sound system.

Mounted a fire extinguisher under the glove box.




You can't even see it unless you tuck your head underneath. So passengers are completely unaware.

Taking the rear bumper off takes less than 10 minutes

A while back I put the '69 cursive Camaro emblems on the car but was bothered by the fact that my steering wheel had the modern block letter. So, I purchased the Camaro dash emblem from the '70s model. I had to bend the emblem to match the radius of the steering wheel (9" radius for those who want to know) and colored it IBM to match the car. I will take more pictures tomorrow in normal daylight with no flash.





P.S. I know there is a little piece of double sided tape showing in the corner, I just can't find my exacto knife to cut it off right now.

I hope that your airbag doesn't go off. Just using two sided tape I would be afraid that the force of the deployment might cause it to come off and embed the emblem in my face.... Just something to consider.

The doublesided tape is cut into 2 pieces and I used a dremel to thin the material in the center of the emblem in case of such an accident. My girlfriend nagged me about that before "allowing" me to put it on.
