Good and bad day all in one!!

A really good day and bad day all in one. It was one year ago today that we got our car delivered to our door. Today, I also got my first ticket for tint and plates. The tint is to dark according to the cops tint meter and my chrome license plate surround is covering the county I live in at the bottom of the plate. This ticket is going to cost me $127.50. It's almost time to put the car away for the winter. I'm going to pull allot of stuff off during the winter and have them hydro-dipped.

I just ordered the "mydipkit" and I'm going to give this carbon fiber hydro dipping process a try on some small interior pieces. I will take pictures of the before and after to let everyone know how it went. Looks pretty easy from all the how to videos out there.

Camaro jacket!!

Received my Camaro jacket today from Camaro5 member (CanadianZL1#992), boy does it look good. He said I would like it and yes, I really like it! A big thank you to him and all the work he does for all of us ZL1 owners.

Hood insert

I just pulled my insert off and I'm sending it to G3 Composites to be wrapped with carbon fiber and have it clear coated. It was signed on the bottom, looked pretty neat.

My insert is painted gray on top. They can't remove the paint without destroying the carbon fiber under neath. I will have some carbon fiber layered over the top. I was actually looking at the possibility of some sort of clear window being installed. Never heard back from ACS composites about my question.

It was a nice day out so I started the car up and let it run for a while.

Parts removed for hydro-dipping

Iv'e got my front end ready to remove the bumber so I can remove the lower splitter and send it to Fastlane (H2O Printers) to be hydro-dipped. Also removed my lower side skirts to be hydro=dipped. Fastlane is currently doing my rear lower valance right now and should be done late next week. I will of course take some pics when it arrives. I'm going to do some of my interior parts myself. I ordered the carbon fiber (mydipkit) and it looks really good on some test pieces I did. I also ordered some LED lights to install on the inside of my door handles to come on with the dome lights, I'll take pics of that also.

Bill

Iv'e tore my passenger door apart and installed a strip of blue LED's to the bottom of my door to match my interior lights so they come on when the door is opened and turn off when the door is closed. I'm still going to wire in a LED light for the outside door handle. However, Ofer has told me I have to run a wire into the interior to make it work right, wiring into the dome lighting. This is going to be a bitch. I'm still pulling pieces off to get hydro-dipped.

Led lights

Just finished up the install of the LED light for the outside door handle for the passenger door, it looks really good. Going to take my new TB and have it powder coated black tomorrow. Packed up all the front end pieces and there ready to send down the H2O printers (Fastlane) in Houston, TX.

Wheels

Trying something new on my wheels to see what it looks like while I have the front end off. A before and after pic, this is 1/4" reflective tape I had left over from my old 5 spoke wheels.
