Hard to believe it has been two years already. I'm sorry to say that I will be putting her to bed for the winter within the next week or so. I need to move somewhere warm so I can enjoy the ride all year.

Well, I got my car put to bed just in the nick of time. Wednesday was in the upper 50's so I drove it to work. Put her to bed for the winter on Thursday morning and on Thursday afternoon it snowed fairly heavy for a short time here in Elk River and we have about an inch on the ground. The worst part; the temp won't come out of the teens today. 30+ degree drop in less than 48 hours. Gotta love MN.

I finally got my Technostalgia tail lights installed. I had originally ordered a set last summer (at the same time as Orange Krate) from J C Whitney. After waiting a couple months I got an email from J C W canceling my order because they were out of stock and unable to get more. I put that mod on the back burner, but never forgot about it. About a month ago I placed an order with Phastec. Their website said the order would take 3-5 weeks to ship from the manufacturer. It took exactly one month and I received the lights a couple days ago. Took my time today and got them installed in a little over three hours. I can't tell how good looking these tail lights are, I love the look. I am planning on installing a switch near the drivers seat so I can turn on the "show mode" when I want to. Jim, did you install a switch when you did your new lights? Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
Steve.

Happy New Year everyone.
We made it past Dooms Day!!
Steve, I have had the Technostalgia tail lights for two years now and they are great. I have a remote for the show mode and it fun to watch people walk past and you hit the remote to run them.
It's a easy hook up.
Radio Shack or some other store of that type has them.
You can check on line also.
You hook the show mode wire to the output side of the switch and the input side to a ground. I put the setup in the trunk because you will also need to run a power line to the remote, I hooked it to the same place that I hooked the tail lights to at the battery, that way you always have power to the remote.
That should take care of it.
You can also add a on/off switch in the power wire of the remote so you do not turn them on while the remote is in your pocket.
It's happened .
Also for your information, If your tail lights do not work right after you have stored it over the winter or have disconnected the battery, Remove the inline fuse for a minute and then put it back togeather.
This will reset the lights and they should work right.
Don

Hey all, wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year! This is (Louis) ssummit camaro now known as 2013 1le. As you can see I sold my 2011 1ss and have 2013 2ss 1le on order. Got it in white also. It is supposed to be built this week but we all know how that goes. As always Becky has been keeping me updated. In the group of TPW 12/31 there was quite a few there but a lot right before Christmas got moved out to January and February, and they all seemed to be zl1 orders. I had many sleepless nights on whether I could sell my 2011, but after test driving a 2013 2 ss camaro with the npp exhaust it was a done deal. My 11 was a auto and driving the six speed is no comparison. So the wait goes on and starting on Tuesday will be bugging Becky looking for a vin. I will post pics as soon as the car comes available. Be safe.

Hey Louis! Congrats on your second child! LOL We will all be anxious to see how the new baby runs! My next one will be either a ZL1 or the 6th gen or perhaps the all elusive Z28...Boss 302 Killer! I am still not done with my current Orange Krate but one never seems to have enough cubic cash or time. Happy New Year to you and all of the TPW 11-15-2010 Alumni... as well as our fearless leader Ms. Becky!

Thanks there Jim, yeah that zl1 is a monster and seriously thought about that until the 1le came out. Has everything I was looking for minus the supercharger. I originally just wanted to buy the black zl1 wheels and do a passenger seat upgrade but after pricing the wheels and tires with Maureen at 5500 dollars and another 600 for the seat, did not really make to much sense doing that.

After seeing a ZL1 on the freeway get it on for just a couple of seconds I was hooked. That car zipped from 60 to about 90 in a nano second. It moved like a slot car! I just don't know if I want a car that only gets 14 MPG again. That is the sacrifice. Of course there is always the Volt! LOL

Thank you for the great information. I never even thought about a remote, but that sounds like the way to go. I will check my local Radio Shack, and when I get it hooked up I will let you know. Also thanks for the word about the lights maybe not working when I uncover my car in the spring. If that happens I would have been wondering about my installation. I installed the lights after putting her to bed this last fall, so have not had a chance to try them out yet, but I sure am looking forward to it. Thanks again.
Also, Happy New Year and welcome to 2013 to everyone.
Steve.

Talking **Orange Krate Updated Mods**

Hi 11-15-2010 gang!
Hope your winterizing and customizing is going well. We had a reprieve in rain and I picked up a nice used BBK CAI and FINALLY got my ghost stripes painted!

I couldn't be happier with the job and got them done much cheaper then I had budgeted for which is bonus! If you go to my journal starting with entry 590 and forward you can see the new mods and an updated list of what I have done to the car. Orange Krate just clicked over 13,000 miles. I have another meeting with the painter tomorrow to add another small detail. In the meantime... here is a look see:

Thought i would check in here to see how everyone is doing. Had my car now for three weeks and still learning the new features compared to my 1ss.
Removed the hood wrap this weekend, was up in the air about but like how it is now. Next thing i am going to try and do is install the heritage grill.

That is one sweet looking LE! I personally like it with the wrap off the hood. I am sure it handles much differently than the 1SS. Congrats and keep us posted.

I just added the LED IOM bowtie to my Orange Krate. That was a fun little project. Stuffing my old @$$ into the trunk upside down to wire it was tight to say the least. LOL But it is done.

I also had Nikki McLaughlin (graphic artist) create an Orange Krate character (new avatar) for my project. He will be seen in a few strategic places on the car at some point.

Motor on!
Jim
