Thanks everyone for the compliments. First car show is Sunday so we'll see how it stands up to the judges scrutiny! For anyone interested, the painters provided me a bunch of pics of the process, I have most of them posted in my build thread, just click my signature.

Thanks man, I considered red but decided it was too common so I went with a blue very similar to the ZR1's jet stream blue and candied it to give it an original look.

They're painted. I considered doing powdercoat but my painter was really confident in the durability of his paint and clearcoat, not to mention the quality! Also it didn't require disassembly/removal of the entire caliper.

Thanks man, I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Went to a local car show hosted by the Camaro Club of The Rockies and WyoSpeed. Had lots of fun and finally got a chance to dyno it since the cam. Unfortunately the numbers fell short of what I was expecting so I might look into figuring out where all that power isnt going to. I do know about 15 rwhp is being eaten by my 3:91 gears. Oh well, more fun to be had with the car!

We have a relocation kit for the heater hoses and to flip the fuel line. Part # JDPE2001
*EDIT I see you already have the fuel line. You need GM Part#: 19259242

Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions.

Fronts are 20X9 5-120 +20, rears are 20X10.5 5-120 +42. Lowered at about 1" though it might be alittle more now that the coilovers have settled.

Thanks man, the alternative was red but I'm glad I went with blue for it's unique look.

Actually I already have your heater hose relocation kit, you guys installed it when I got the headers and tune at JDP. Still enjoying your stuff and might eventually stop by again for more go-fast stuff!

It's a custom color the shop did for me. He had been restoring a gas tank for an old indian motorcycle and was using the color on that. I was originally planning on jetstream blue from the ZR1 but I decided I liked his blue better. However we messed with it a little to give it a nice tint/candy look.





Now that winter is coming it's time to start storing it right and hopefully get it to High Plains Raceway in the near future!
