Start with the engine

Time to start with the engine compartment. Starts pretty much like all the others from the factory. Then we got the idea to let Mike Weatherholt and his crew in the body shop at Hubbard GM Center paint the engine cover. From there, we went to the CAI. After some "hometown" pinstriping, I decided it was time to get the Discover Card out and purchase some items--BBK CAI. IT EVEN MATCHES MY CAR'S COLOR
More to come...have to help with the turkey. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thanks so much Superchris. I am having so much fun doing this. Mom and Dad would love this thread. Although they never had the opportunity to look at or ride in the 2010, we would take rides in the 1968. I remember the last cruise we took, I was driving with Mom being co-pilot. My Dad was 6' 7'' and we finally got him "tucked" in the back seat! We cruised Monticello, Indiana and simply had a great time.

Pinstriping of engine compartment

I wanted to post photos of the engine bay first and will follow-up with those of the body as well.
Before I go any further, I must speak of the man with the talent to "tatoo" vehicles. His name is Ken Klim. They call him "Wildman". I discovered his talent years ago when I was looking for something for my 1997 Dodge Sport Truck. With chaulk in hand and about 2 minutes of his time, he had drawn on my truck exactly what I was thinking--and had no other information other than I asked that it be subtle. Oh, and I advised him he would get the job only if his signature was on the truck. He agreed and the rest is history. I trust you will find his work on the 2010 Camaro real nice and subtle--so subtle, sometimes the sun needs to be just right to bring out the colors. He used red and cyber grey to compliment the Aqua Blue and Cyber Grey Rally Stripes. Many at shows come up to the car stating, "Hey, that does have pinstriping on it and the closer we get, the better it looks. Who in the world did that?" As far as I am concerned, that tells the story.
Thanks so much Ken for making our ride what it is today. Oh, and by the way, yes "Wildman" is painted on the rear bumper!!
Your friends...Kurt & Kathy

Thanks Bo Tie. I have a 327/300hp 4 speed w/410 GM Posi. I am going to do a build thread on it as well. I left Tran a message asking if there would be a problem with that. I have yet to hear, so it must be okay. Thanks for asking...
