Perfect touch! It works well with the silver and white.

Thanks, Once I layed it on there last night, I knew it was the right thing. I was going to paint it, but just was not sure how it would look. Then chroming it, I was not sure either, but it could not have worked out any better.

I don't think I feel any difference. I imagine there is but since these cars are tight already it might be hard to tell. I got it, because it seems like it fills in a empty space especially when you see them on the convertables and the zl1. I also think that this is the best looking strut bar out there.

Congrats Bill! How cool is that? I got some "new shoes" for Orange Krate yesterday. They are 20" OEM Chromies! I love the look of OEM but wanted more sparkle. This did it. Going cruising tonight!

Thanks Gents! The car show was fun and I didn't want to drive home. I was having so much fun I wanted to just keep driving. I have a couple of more surprise mods in the works! I am stoked.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I have almost 19K on my baby. I think I am going to change the plugs, Trans Fluid and rear end fluid at 20K.

Don't think I would change the plugs. The rear end I did it at 1500 miles. Very easy to do. If you do your own trans let us know how that comes out.

Talking **Orange Krate Nose Job**

Hey gang...checking in at 7500 miles. Last Father's Day weekend I installed a Heritage Grille! This was procured through my favorite source-Rodgers Chevrolet, and our friends Becky and Maureen! THANK YOU LADIES!

The proof is in the pudding...

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=565

I have another mod in the mail coming this week. It is a surprise custom mod. I have only seen one other like it. Small but effective! LOL Not cheap though. As a matter of fact I was surprised at how much this jewel costs to custom make. I will be posting a DIY on the install at the Birth of Orange Krate journal.

You all be safe out there this summer! Hope you are enjoying your cool Camaros as much as I am. It is my addiction.

Great shift ball. I was wondering if you ever went to Sickspeed for some shopping after I posted the pic's of my new Synergy green shift ball. Don't you just love the way it feels in your hand. I think it really compliments the short throw shifter, just has a better feel than the stock one.

Here in MN I don't get to drive my Camaro for about five months out of the year so my odometer is only at 3500 miles. But I can tell you this - I had a smile on my face for each and every one of those miles.

Steve

Steve the shifter feels great! I have already received some good feedback on the shift ball from a few casual viewers. I was amazed at how heavy the stock ball was. I had no idea. I have a buddy that lives in Albertville, MN and works down in Rogers. He swears he has seen a Synergy green Camaro in your area on occasion. My guess is he has seen you on the highway there. I was in your neck of the woods in 1995 and would love to come back and check it out again. Happy 4th to you and all the 11/15 owners!
