Final Pedders & Pfadt suspension parts installed today and we started the process of corner weighting again, should really be able to dial it close to 51/49% which is as close to perfect as you can get. The car will literally be on rails. Really want to make the Paradise Chevy Show on Sunday so pushing for the alignment tomorrow (Friday), so the rig can make it's first public showing & hook up with the boys from the 4C's!

Still waiting on more parts & decisions to make before my move south, so a lot could be done in the next month. My ZL1 bumper will be in on Monday (right Gary ), then the custom ZL1EATR will be that close to being done....Sorry ZL1 owners, truth sometimes hurts, but we can still be friends

I'll leave you with the latest renderings from our own xVengencex28, my Jersey Bro, Chris. Throw the man a bone and he'll blow you away with his skills!









Killer!

I can't take any credit for the pix ABL99, Chris (xVengeancex28) is a true artist & an all-around awesome guy to work with. You should definitely drop him a line for some of his handy work. I plan on getting Car Show Display Stands and blowing up the pics he did for me, and using them at shows. He's got another project for me next week when the ZL1 bumper comes in

Info about the 68 in your thread

Some more of Chris' handy work





















Just got in from AAC the new Oracle Ghosted Sidemarkers and these things are sick, can't wait to see them on. Oracle has outdone themselves again!

Latest update as of today, subframe has been dropped (again!) to install the ZL1 fuel pump. Just confirmed my interior order with Lupe @ River City Creations for Piano Black Speedo/Tach Bezel, Shifter Bezel, Long Console strips & Steering wheel bezel. Also just picked up Ted Jannetty's Performance Tensioner & Pulley (Thanks for the help Ted)

For next week's schedule:
Gary from Gary's Customz says my ZL1 bumper will be headed to Cali on Monday, as should the latest project Roger @ Emblem Pros is doing for me. Plus I'll be getting my custom CAI lid from Bill @ CAI, Inc (Thank you Bill for making this project a reality & going above & beyond helping me on this)

It's getting down to crunch time, as May will be moving month to the LA area, so everything should be timed nicely. As usual, pics will be following of ZL1 Fuel Pump install tomorrow.
Thanks for looking & Thanks for all the support!

Thanks Dizzy, appreciate the props, but appreciate your service to our country even more!

I actually just got a house yesterday in Redondo Beach, right on the border between Hermosa & Manhattan Beaches.....Are you nearby? If so we should definitely get together and we'll cruise so people will be doing double takes as we rule the streets :headband:


According to Gary, the ZL1 bumper is painted!

Hey Kronix. Killer looking ride your have! I'm new to this forum. I don't have pics or even a camaro yet. haa.. I will soon. You stated the tires are 265/30 Front & 315/25 Rear. Is this accurate? I'm sure it is but just making sure. How about a picture from the rear to show the width? Thanks.

Hi Rc, Thanks for the compliments & welcome to the forum! I just checked my sales receipt to confirm what the tire size was, and that is correct. The car's at the shop, finishing up the ZL1 fuel pump install & we're putting an X-Pipe on the exhaust since it had to be taken down. I will confirm the tire size when I go there today, a few members asked for pictures of the V1 radar system so I'll double check the tires for you. If you do decide to go that route, definitely let me know or contact Shawn (his contact info is on page 1 of the build sheet) he'll give you great pricing on wheels & tires, and they're forum sponsors too.

Here's a pic after we put the tires on, but before the 3dCarbon ground effects, so you can see what the wheels would look like on a stock body.





And here with the rear spats installed



Good luck with your Camaro search & thanks for looking!

Thanks for the info. The width of those rear tires really look aggressive. Why are the front tires 30 low profile and not match the rears of 25? Nice work all around the build!

RC, I'm not sure but I did confirm size today. When I told Shawn at WSI the set up I was planning on installing that's the size he suggested.


Here's the pics of the Valentine 1 radar system for those of you that asked about it, sorry it took so long to get pics up.


Roof liner mounted pod with V1 radar inside
Rear View Mirror with Concealed Display
Remote Audio Adaptor On/Off mounted in center console.


Any questions on install feel free to ask
