I have a feeling my thread is sorta dead... But ohh well great way to keep track of the car for myself.

I just ordered some custom stuff from Big Worm that I think well come out pretty cool if they work. Wont be for a couple of weeks till I get them but I cant wait.

Springs are on the way and I also order a rear black out kit that should be here any day now. So new pics to come!

I have been in contact with a shop to produce the SSX tow hook from my cads I sent them. Hopefully will have that in my hands soon so I can test fit it and make any changes to the design. If all goes well I might produce a few to sell and see how well they do. I have to come up with a way to test it so I know its safe and wont rip off my bumper!

haha thanks man! I am guilty of the same thing. By the way your reverse hood kit from Revolution Styling is awesome! When I get the new hood that will be a must.

Just FYI.....Only the stock hood or the Revolutions SS Style hood will work with the kit...

I have a Revo hood on order should be on the car within 2 months

Thanks! next couple weeks the parts should be rolling in. Not going some much for power anymore... think about getting a ZL1 next year or hey maybe wait till the c7 is out. So trying to keep the warranty in tacked to help resale. But who says i can make it look good! nice and clean is the gaol .


Oh and I made a new signature..

When companies made hoods out of fiberglass they add metal supports in the fiberglass where the hood supports attach. So when you reverse the hood with the kits the supports are in the wrong place. This could lead to cracking/breaking fiberglass. I spoke with dean several times on the phone, some people have made there own supporting systems to get their hoods to work and have had no issues. But when Dean makes his Revolutions hood he adds the supports in the nose and the lower side where the support rods go. Hope this helps

Rear blackout kit just showed up at my house according to my tracking info... I might do it tonight! So maybe some new pics tonight as well!

The springs will be here monday but they will be next weekends project.

Next thing should be the hood and wing so I can get them painted for spring.

Well I was hoping to be able to take better pics this past weekend but due the the weather here in NJ I was not able to...

On a side note my BMR springs just showed up at my door. So this weekend coming I will try and make some time to start that lil project. Still have to do the rear black out but like I said before the weather kinda put a damper on that. I might try to go over there tonight and do that. If I have room in the heated garage.

So keep posted hopefully soon I will have new pics to post.
