I thought you were going to zip-tie that to the grille for a "permanent" install and a place to stash and emergency beer - "just in case"
Managed to get a bottle of Dead Frog in there. Kind'a of a sig in this thread.

Speedster, I have to choose the CDN craft beers wisley. US Customs will only allow us to bring 4 six packs to C5F II.

Looks like the moon and the stars are lining up tomorrow. My Buddy Tony is going to Vegas in the morning to hook up with Andro to complete the deal and pick-up my Bogarts.. By the time I get up tomorrow morning from graveyard shift it should be a done deal.

Tony is the man... one of our own, and so helpful... He hooked me up in a hurry, though I realize Forgestar is running a little busy right now, I'm not in a hurry as long as they are here in time for the Fest....uhm, I am of course assuming you are referring to Nine Ball...

For future reference, what can you tell me about the various levels of the RPM Transmissions...I saw where they listed three different levels for the 2010 Camaro...
