Thanks!

I won't be in the show this year. :( I didn't think I was going to be in town this weekend, but I had a change of plans. I'll probably head up there to check out all the rides!

Since it's my DD and I've already put alot of miles on the car, I'd like to be able to recalibrate the speedo; but as far as I know there isn't a way to recalibrate or tune the V6's.
Yeah, his new set up should be very close to your current set up. You have 28.6" all the way around and he is going with 28.8 rear and 28.4 front.
I think that will look great on the back, but a little too much sidewall on front for me. I'm taking a chance and going 28" rear and 27" front. I hope the 1" diference doesn't freak out the comp. If it does and it can't be tuned to get fixed I already have a couple of fixes up my sleeve.


My front should be the exact same diameter as the 285/40 you want to do. Don't know when you are looking to get new tires but I already ordered my tires. Wheels are what's gonna take a while, probably late March. My car will also be lowered 1.4" already have the springs sitting here. I'll gladly put my two fronts on one side of the car so you can get an exact idea of what your car will look like lowered and with 27" tall tires all the way around. Should look killer.

You'll have one of the few convertibles with 18" wheels!

I'll probably get new tires late spring or early summer. I'll for sure lower the car first. I can't see myself getting rid of these tires with so much tread left on them.

I'll watch out for the post when you bring your new car home and all the goods to go with it!

Not really a mod for my car, but I made a Signature for any pics that I take and any photoshops that I work on! In these photos, the signatures are in the lower corners. I made a sig for dark backgrounds and one for brighter backgrounds. The sigs will usually be smaller in the pics, but I made them bigger in these pics to show more detail.

Let me know what you think!

Got rid of the license plate bracket this week! Car looks 10x better! I was going to polish the car, but decided to wait until I have a random orbital so I dont' have to polish by hand. I did clay and wax the car, but the cloudy sky didn't allow the camera to pick up the shine.



Also, took out #1 ('95 Camaro), cleaned it up and took some pics! It's the first time I've gotten pics of both Camaro's at the same time!

Thumbs down Bad post

FML!!! Well today just fell flat. Ended up damaging one of my wheels. :upset: Curb just jumped out of no where! And on the driver's side, too!!! I think it's a sign; I guess I'll be better off if I just get rid of the Camaro.
















































Only kidding about getting rid of the car! I can't get rid of it this easily. Here's some pics of the damage. Not sure what I'm going to do about it yet...

I've only had them for three months... I went through the Sonic drive-thru earlier today to get a drink and noticed a girl, two cars back, driving a Camaro. I was looking at her and her car through the mirror, took the turn a little too close and heard the sound of metal crushing concrete. That's what I get for staring at a girl while trying to drive.

Thanks! Mods trickle down a little at a time... Exhaust should be within a month.
