Only thing I have so far is a picture Corey sent of box's taking up about 12 feet of his floor space, and that doesn't include the short block or Turbo kits... Those should be in today or very early next week... I hope...

The brake fluid and shop towels are not mine, nor is the chair (I already have seats) or extension cord, but the rest of it pretty much is... I'm sure some sharp eyed person will spot something else... ok...

He said, the clutch, injectors, and pretty much all other parts are there... They should start tearing it down today if not yesterday...

I need off this frigg'in rig... as much to see the project as it progresses as to get the hell away from certain people out here... I'm about to loose my mind and go ape on a couple, well one of them anyway... It may happen the next time he slams the phone in my ear... dealing with immature supervisors and their little clickish crony friends isn't fun, and it makes for a really crappy day...

Sorry for the VENT... but...

Sucks about the supervisors... I love being left alone to do my work out in the field. I do my work. I do it right. I don't get complained on. I go home at the end of the day. I don't call my supervisors with a bunch of crap. I basically keep to myself as much as possible. That's what a supervisor wants. I hate those supervisors that you are basically talking about. I know of that here and I just stay away from it (not my direct supervisors).

But....back to the good stuff...

I was looking and looking, but it's a small picture. Gimmie a high res and I'll find what you're talkin' about!

Robert - Went to Henderson Performance on Thursday and couldn't even get in the door. There was a pile of parts stacked from the door to the back of the shop with a "Hold for Pink Pig sign on them". Talked with Corey and saw all of your parts, what an impressive pile! Corey said he was getting ready to bring your car in and shut down the shop to focus on your build.
You are gonna have one monster when this build is done and you definitely went with the right builder for the project. I had a little work done on Thursday and was really impressed with Corey's approach to working on a customers car. You stated earlier in your thread that he brings in a certain amount of reality and that is what I saw and appreciated.
You are gonna have an awesome car my friend!
Corey had an IOM in his shop and I was gonna take a picture and post it with a comment about the new color for Brandi but I figure your stressing enough so I will leave it alone........ for now.
Looking forward to seeing you when you get back.

Sam,

Thanks for the update. I am doubly stressed with work and the fact that I can't freely communicate with my Wife... My personal e-mail is out, and we are severly restricted to how much we can use the company computer for personal stuff... I try to call, but thats very hit and miss as well....

We'll deal with it...

As for Corey, he is seriously top notch... I figure if anyone wants to find me for the next couple or three weeks, they only need stop by there, and yes, I promised I would not be in the way or make them crazy...
I found a builder...
1. that I like a lot
2. that knows his business,
3. that I trust with my car implicitly...

So, I'll watch, ask an occasional question, only if I'm not in the way...

Thanks for the update as I'm sure they have sent me something and I can't get into my yahoo account for the last 4 days. Which sux by the way...

Many thanks to "Speedster" for turning me on to your build . This is the build I'd love to do and I've been looking at the same turbos.
I looked at the ERL blocks also , they are super trick . What is the stroke ? I always liked the big bore short stroke , rev it to the wood combo . I'm sure whatever you chose it will scream .
This will certainly be one of the top Camaros in the world .
Good luck with your project , I'll be watching and endeavour .

Well I'm stuck here another day... My relief's crew arrived in country in time to get out here but the helicopters would not fly due to weather out over the water... I think there was a rain cloud around the coast of Africa...
