So - My car is at the body shop for the new hood and everyone hates the red accent. Including the boss, I mean my wife. So I'm off to the shop to get another look. If I take the Red out, I'd still like the RS accent.

The hood went on today to check the fit. A bit low on the driver side but a little shim is all it needs.

The tail is painted less the striping:

It's a little bigger than I thought it would be.

Looks sick does the hood weigh any less than factory?

50 lbs was the delivery weight including the box. Seems lighter to me.

The hood vinyl I got last week as a mask stuck and left a glue residue. I ran around today with my daughter, collecting materials as tried to cut out the logo by hand, but it didn't come out perfect. I called another sign company that had exactly the kind of masking material I needed in the first place. I picked up the logo at 4pm and got it to the shop right away. So after all that, I'm hoping to get my car back by Thursday!

Finally! Picked up my car today. Pictures up shortly. A bit dusty but impressive. I sure did miss her.

Showtime 2011

I went to my 1st car show of the year today. American Car Heritage Weekly Car Show It was nice to get out and hang out with some car enthusiasts. I was the only 5th Gen there and I had a lot of people stop to talk.







Good Times

Went to Rodgers Chevrolet Meet n Greet today in Woodhaven near Detroit today:



VETERAN 1



Had a nice suspension talk from Pete of Pedders Suspension. I'm thinking about bushings!

Afterward, I stopped in Fowlerville for the American Car Heritage Weekly Car Show.
I was still the only 5th Gen.

I'm not sure if my new ram-air hood made the difference but; On my drive from Lansing MI to Detroit today and got some impressive mileage. 29.4 on the way down and 31.2 on the way back.

I don't think I ever saw my mileage do this well.

Hello Erick, I didn't see you at Rodger's until you were pulling out to leave. Wish I would have noticed you there so I could have caught up to you and talked.

I didn't know about your thread until 30 minutes ago.

Very nice job on all the mods.

Defiantly a nice well put together Camaro.

Talk to you again maybe in Milford or at the Camaro Superfest.

Mike
