ordered a new lower grill last night. should be getting my splitter in tomorrow then droping it off for paint with my zl1 rockers. Put my 4 guage pack, and the leather counsole lid and the auto shift boot and the cfd shifter. I still have to wire the shifter since the needle kept pricking me. I needed a break. ill upload pics when i get time!

I also fixed my zl1 diffuser a few days ago! no more double tape looks 100% better then before!

well the good and the bad news! my spoiler is going to be painted! the cf finish just didnt look right by it self.. the dam spoiler fought me but i took it to jerrys and he got it off and the new one test fitted.. Bad news the dealership that installed my spoiler drilled a few too many holes and my decklid need to be repainted because the spoiler chipped some of the paint and the new spoiler doesn't cover it up... nothing ever goes as planned.. and my parts wont be painted for carlisle... its okay tho i registered as stock!

i spent the whole day detailing the camaro! I washed and clayed the car on friday and started with the pc this morning. Severe Swirl and Haze Remove, Swirl and Haze Remover, Fine machine Polish and finished the day up with the Super Machine Sealant. Going to let that cure for 24 hours and probably tuesday morning im going to put a coat of glaze and buttery wax and possibly follow that up with some mothers wax for extra protection. Then i have to detail the interior and ill be all ready for Carlisle! i think haha been a long but very successful and rewarding day! The paint isnt perfect but 100% better then before. Pics will be up when i go to Carlisle. The car isnt coming out of the garage till then!

Just bought some wheel locks from a member! Rather take extra precautions then find my car on blocks if it ever stays outside.

got my locking lug nuts in today, going to install them tomorrow and retap my footwell lights to the passenger side, i heard that if you tap into the grey wire above the gas pedal and is accidentally shorts is can fry the bcm needless to say ill be taping into the dome light in the passengers side kick panel where there is a fuse built in so it cant fry the bcm if there is a short

well i accomplished what i wanted to. installed my wheel locks, wish they were about 1/4 to 1/2 inch shorter but they will do, idk what im going to do when i put my stock 18s back on. I also rewired my footwell lights to the passenger side so no more worrying about shorting out the bcm!

well i havent updated this in a while... i went to the c5 fest in indy! had a great time with the club and meeting a bunch of people from the forms. I got new wheel locks and a gallon of detail spray and a new wash mitt. Today i received a new torque wrench so i put my new wheel locks on and torqued them down. It was much easier then winging it tightening the lugs. still semi undecided what direction i want to go with my car. Want to do alot just dont know what to do first and then theres going to texas for c5 fest in may, if i want to go i have to start saving now so that put some of my plans on hold, dont know what to do first speaker upgrade, rims... 20s or 22s? 22s or a bit out of the price range but dont want to say i should have after i bought 20s, have to see more in person. and then theres performance, headers, ported intake manifold, and gears, wanted to do 3.73 but dont know if its feasible. need a new differential and all and then having new gears installed. cant make up my mind. :( and my parts are still at paint i need to get those back but i cant rush them hes doing me a favor.
