had a blast at AutoRama, the car was a big hit, I think I should have one the award for most photographed front end. Everyone loved the new Michigan Badge.

Here are some pics from my new TommyZ edition Camaro
there is still more work to do, (wrong hood showed up) so we made due, but the new one will have a similar stripe, and it will wrap over the roof to the trunk.

The cold air induction Fog Light Delete turned out amazing though!

THanks Robert... I know... I am running out of winter weather to waste.. I need it down there asap. I am working on another transport, I know you are busy. lets chat though.

there is a few key things we need to finish, like the stripe and new hood. but I like it.

yea... it was closed most of the show. that hood is temporary.

had a few GM guys come over and they said the same thing about the fron fenders and rear quarter. They said that is how they wanted it to look originally if they could have.

He also asked where the fog lights went, he thought that was a nice touch.

WOW

UN-FREAKING-REAL

Dude....your car looks SICK! I can't believe it! Been a long time, brother. A long time since I've seen it. Can't wait to see it in person once again. How very, very cool...

Love the look. That yellow really goes well. Never thought about adding touches like that, but you pulled it off very well.

Thanks Doug, You will probably see it soon.... shoot you will probably dirve it before I see it again. haha. it should be in NB in a couple weeks.

Yea, the gold pinstripe and the gold rotors really turned out nice, when it is completly finished it will look great.

the fender and quarter panel vents turned out fantastic.
and i am so happy to get rid of those shitty fog lights. haha

China

Hey All...

As I am bouncing around the Chinese Country side I was able to hop on here for a min.

Quick update... car was just repainted again since the show (few blemishes), finished up a couple more outside features, and is currently awaiting a trip to HPT for a motor refresh.... summer is here.... I AM OUT OF TIME


So, whatever.

here are some pics from the last week.
So far I have been to Shanghai, Tziang Fang, and Zhangjigang. A week from today I leave for Beijing.

I hope you enjoy the pics.
