Man those seats are perfect. Is there a direct bolt-in bracket with sliders or do you have to do some fab work?

Any idea what the weight savings is compared to the stock seats?

We will do our best. Once the car gets back from paint, we will be working day and night to get her ready.

The seats are 23 lbs each (stock is 55lbs and 44lbs). "Planted" makes a bracket for the camaro for aftermarket seats, and the sliders are from cobra. they look killer with the harness.

I was a track photographer there until sports car racing took a back seat to off-road stuff. I have no interest in that at all.

I can't remember if Aaron ever got any of my photos, but I sure enjoyed seeing him, George and J R Smith (no relation to George, but another Pfadt customer/sponsee) race.

There are a lotta road racing photos on my primary website: http://www.chevyasylum.com/Welcome.html (click on the Road Racing thumbnail, then select a year, then an event and so on) as well as other car stuff. I primarily do car shows and Land Speed Racing now. I've retired as a freelance photographer, but still shoot what I like.

Btw, I just finished doing a complete undercoating job on my 2010 2SSRS prior to racing it on the salt flats. Another wonna them "it started out as a little bitty thing..." deals. I'm just about ready to put it back together. I better hurry cuz I gotta have it on the trailer in 4 days. I'll post photos of that project in another thread.
Great pics!

To the OP, I've said it before, but I'll say it again: Couldn't be more proud to see our suspension on such an amazing car

Hmmmmm.........LOL

Once the car is available from GM I am certain you will be able to get the fender moldings (flares) and work them into your ground effects without having to change over to the newer front & rear nose & tail. I plan on buying a set when they become available for my car. I am also going to swap out my GM Rockers skirts for the ZL1 because I damaged mine and the only way I can get them is to buy the entire GM Kit.
I can't wait for the Z/28 to come out. That is going to be one sick car!!

Thanks guys, In all honest, incorperating the Pfadt components has been a huge motivating factor to take the car to the next level. I have said it before and will say it again, those pieces are a work of egineering art! Thanks again for all your guys before and after!

Quick update:

We also re spray the floor pan to cover the areas I couldn't do on our two post lift. Thought we would be finished today but Carlos "painter" received an emergency call and had to leave. He has gone the extra mile to get the car done. I can't say how much we appreciate his and his team hard work!

The carbon really pops with the white. We are so glad we decided to stay true to our theme and keep the color factory white! Pearl would have definitely veering from the goal.

Wish us luck as we are going to need for all the ducks to fall into places over the next 11 days.

Current punch list.

  • paint the trunk pan
  • paint hood
  • paint the under side of the trunk gray
  • cut and polish the doors
  • cut and polish both front fenders
  • Cut and polish rockers
  • cut and polish front bumper
  • cut and polish rear bumper
  • cut and polish front bumper
  • install mirrors and door handles
  • align doors to fenders
  • align door windows
  • install rockers
  • install rear bumper
  • install rear spoiler
  • install rear diffuser
  • install front bumper
  • install front splitter
  • install windows
And this is just the beginning!

Usually I prefer the little gap on the rockers unpainted but it looks good in white here! Must be the CF

Nathan and Justin, I wish I could be there to lend a hand with assembly or whatever you need. After SEMA you need to take the car on a nationwide tour!
