Got my dash bubble fixed today, Patrick at gmpartshouse took care of me under warranty, if you have the bubble I recommend getting it fixed. Also, got my rear bowtie from Lupe in the mail today he painted the inside CFM, looks really good, I will post pics when I get it installed.

I like the 4.5" tips and it will fit in well with my Havoc rear diffuser I'll be installing.

I may "liberally adopt" your fender hash design. Any objections? (not for resail, just personal use)

I may have to do the same! Best looking hashes I've seen! And I've wanted a stripe or something there but haven't wanted something that looked too "boss 302-ish" stripe like.

Contact Steve @ www.x-tremegraphics.com and let him know I referred you... he has this design/template saved.

I like the grand sport hashes but wanted it to be unique and I wanted the hashses to not only mimic the 45th AE theme but also end right above the fender logos (CAMARO, 45th). I first reached out to Big Worm but they stated the colors may not match the AE theme... other C5 members here used X-treme before with satisfactory results. Steve's stripes matched pretty well so I'm happy. Plus he liked my idea and rendered it as envisioned.

Well taken but I beg to differ plus it's a never ending debate... Dodge's signature twin hashes vs. Chevy's Grand Sport hashes, etc. That's exactly why I had it designed with a twist/variance and unique enough according to my preference. Different strokes for different folks.

I meant the old '70 boss mustangs:


But regardless, I'm still insanely jealous of you for having that boss. I want one!


Also, thanks for the referral, I'll let him know you sent me. If you don't mind me asking, how much were they?

8ty buckeroos. Steve also owns a 5th gen Camaro so he was able to measure/align using his own car. You could say I was the pioneer or guinea pig.

The 69/70 Boss 302s are badazz. The 12/13 revivals are a blast to drive too.

What did you use to remove the old bowtie? I'm concerned I may damage the paint. What did you use to install the new bowtie? BTW - Looks great!

It does look nice.

Go here and scroll down to the rear bowtie instructions... http://www.mylrs.com/blogs/lrs/archi...mblem-kit.aspx

And here's one DIY on utube...
