Very nice ride! Can't go wrong with red. I think painting the GFX makes the car look more stealthy.

The little things

Here is the picture of the bench cover I embroidered. I was having fun. It's not the right font, but for now I'm ok with that for now.

The decision we have to make is if we paint the wood black.

Monday, I took out a red blanket from the trunk...I had to play again. This will keep our son warm when we cruse with the windows down.

I'm looking into buying a font that's closer so I can embroider my other blanket.

This is going to be a LONG week, waiting for the parts to arrive.

Even longer...I have to wait until my husband brings them home from work. At least I know they won't be taken from our front porch (never had a problem, & don't want one either).

I'm going to have to ask my husband to wait so we both can open them at home. I know he'll want to check them out.

So MOMSREDSS goes in next week to the shop to have BMR suspension, ARH LongTubes, Loudmouth II and Pedders stainless brake lines installed.

We are also going to get a custom tune and a Dyno Run at the same time.

Since the car is a L99 we know we are going to have them turn off the AFM, shop recommended it as well. Any thoughts on other considerations?

Appreciate any comments.

Camaro 2lt & Orange Krate, thank you. I could host parties out here, but I won't ask the guests to eat off the floor.

If all goes as planned today, I will be going to the shop to check on the progress & take more pictures.

Since we have the ground effects package on our Camaro we went with square tips to match the rectangular opening on rear valance. Only problem is the tips are not polished. They are stainless though so I spent an hour or so polishing them up before they get installed. I think they look great and will look great when installed, better than having the round tip in the square hole!

Don't be discouraged or avoid the SLP square tips if you are running the GM ground effects because a little elbow grease and they look great.

Get these polished ones to the shop tomorrow so they can be installed with exhaust.

More photos of suspension work being done. Dropped the whole rearend out of the car to install bushing kit, springs and trailing arms.

Hopefully tomorrow we have photos of rear suspension installed and maybe front as well.

Ya, there was a few really nice cars at the show. The red metallic 53 Chevy cab over pickup across street from the Olds was really nice and won best in show.

Lightning Rod's, what where they thinking!

More pictures of the suspension mod! This turned out to be a huge project! We didn't realize how much work replacing most the bushings would be. Pretty much got it all done today and am glad I decided to have a shop do it for me. Carb-Con in Kirkland WA, has done a great job.

Should have pictures of the car on the ground tomorrow. Headers, cats and cross over are installed now also. Mufflers should be tomorrow morning and then off to get alignment.

Its starting to feel like Christmas eve and I can't wait to open the presents. Plan is to hopefully get on the Dyno on Saturday and do custom tune and see what kind of numbers the stock motor will have with the exhaust mods, tune and CAI.

I've been to the shop every day to look at my car & taking pictures. It's quite the process.

Today, I showed up as they were bleeding the breaks. I took a few more pictures of it on the rack. The tires are back on it : o) (That's the one picture I don't have yet.)

It went off for it's alignment just after we left (husband met me).

I think I heard my car tell me..."I'm ready to come home now!" It might be all done tomorrow, if so...I will drive it home.

Brownie's are in the oven, baking for all the hard work the guys did for me on my car.
Thanks, Carb Conn!!! I/we can't wait.
