That's a good one!!!
The wait will be over soon as far as engine mods, as cam, injectors, & other stuff go in this time next week. So just a little bit longer!

The ZL1 Front piece came from Gary's Customz, then I bought the finishing pieces like the brake ducts & underbody tray from Ofer (2SSRS) and used the Oracle lighting package for the DRLs & Fogs



New wheels & tires are on. Can definitely feel the stopping power better, as well as acceleration, drives on rails, but it always did that with the Pedders suspension.

Enjoy!

Thanks bro, I try to keep it fresh, and my head is full of ideas. Got a few more tricks up my sleeve that I won't give away just yet, besides the engine work that CMS is doing. Like Michael Corleone said in The Godfather, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in"
I guess it'll never stop

Thank you my friend! Wheel Warehouse took a bunch of pics and they told me placement, I think the car will be on their site shortly. They took pics with a much better camera than my iPhone so I'm interested to see how they turn out. You should have your wheels/tires about a week from today! Don't forget the alignment, they're balanced.

Lookin' good! I love following your build because it never ends!

What happened to the NT05's? There is a night and day difference between those and the Invo's on there from what I hear. I haven't used Invo's, but I have NT05's on my SS and when they're warmed up, they're flat out amazing. Though, the new Michelin Pilot Super Sport's are supposed to be even better... in every category (except price... they cost twice as much).

Oh, and if your car handles like it's on rails, you're driving too slow.

You know, I was kind of disappointed when I won COTW (not really but you know what I mean) because when I won it, the car wasn't even near completion, but I certainly was honored to have won it! It meant a lot to me!

As far as 2 time, I'm going to try

I'm running Nitto INVO's, I was going to run NT05s, but my guy said I'd be replacing them a lot quicker, so I went with the INVOs.

I'd heard great things about both, and as you mentioned I was going with the NT05s but made a 12th hour decision to go with the INVOs, cause they'll grip well and give me a little more life. My tire guy said I'd be changing out the NT05s a lot sooner than the INVOs.....Even at 145, I'm on rails....Thanks to Pedders, Pfadt & BMR

That's next my friend!!! Or in line, just trying to see which ones I want, Granatelli makes a matte black rotor that looks sick! But they're coming!

Off to get my Oracle Concept LED Mirrors installed!

Hell yeah those would look sick! What about the calipers? You going to stay black or offset it with red ones? I've been wanting to ask you about your mirror radar also, are you liking it? Does the radar work good in that cover?

I'm not sure about the calipers yet probably will stay with black, especially after today (see below) The VI radar system in my rearview works fantastic, never a faulty signal & highly recommended!!!

Oracle is making them now, AAC has a thread up and I know a sponsor that has quite a few sets unpainted. Antidote Performance has a bunch, their number is 714-808-0270 & www.cureyourcar.com is their site. Tell them I sent you!


So I went to Antidote today to get my mirrors installed, because yesterday after getting my wheels & tires, Wheel Warehouse forgot to set my TPMS, so since they're in the same center why not kill 2 birds with one stone.

And next on my mod list was interior stuff like stereo, reverse camera, painted door inserts, etc...Well, put it this way, I walked out about $XXXX lighter I'm a sucker for quality! And these guys ROCK & they're so damn talented!!!!

So the guys at Antidote (Jake & his dad, Cameron) were nice enough to give me a ride home because they said, well the doors are apart, lets just do this. So going in now is:
Painted Piano Black Schosche Kit (Converts HVAC to touch screen)
Painted Piano Black Door inserts & dash trim
Pioneer Z140BH (Bad ASS) Head Unit
Morel Front & Rear Speakers
Image Dynamics 10" Subwoofer
Arc Audio 4 Channel Amp
Arc Audio 2 Channel Amp
OEM Integration Back up Camera (will show on screen)
Custom Fiberglass Subwoofer Enclosure (molded to side of trunk)
Oracle Halo LED Colorshift Lighting for headlights & DRLs
Custom matched leather Amp board with matching thread to seats

So Camaro-less until next Wednesday then I had to postpone my date with Cunningham Motorsports for the cam & injectors until Thursday.....When will the money stop???? I really think I'm done.........After the new brakes

Damn that's a lot of new upgrades! But yeah after reading those you might want the black calipers. Oh and I think you might want to get ahold of Camaro Now and try to get a feature in the next issue! I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to do

Maybe you can make the front a little different then the others by adding a mail slot to the zl1 bumper. I actually dont know if any people really do that at all. Just an idea brotha.

I feel like I have the kid's version of your car :(
You still have my favorite black camaro...ever.

I have Oracle LEDs behind the grill in white & red, so that makes it a little different. Don't you remember all the trouble I went through on my old bumper to get rid of that non functional mailslot? Never again! The Oracle Halo kit for the headlights & DRLs will really make it stand out too. Can't wait to drive around with green halos!

Thank you for the compliments brother! Modding takes time, just plan it out and save your money. I know it's hard on a college students life but you'll get there brother!
