Beautiful RS. Very interested in what the interior looks like around the T-Tops. Custom headliner, or used the factory one modified? I have a sun roof and figured T-Tops were out of the question, thanks for breaking that barrier.

Thanks yal. Yes everything to do with the roof and headliner were custom made. Even the color of my interior headliner had to be special ordered because the only other ones ever done had black headliners and I didn't want that..

Bringing you back to the top! Hey, you thinking of maybe doing a leg of the Hot Rod Power Tour? The last stop is Charlotte this year!

Haven't really given it much thought but definitely interested. My main focus here lately has been the all camaros meet in Cary, NC next weekend.

What did the shop do to ensure rigidity of the body when they did the T-Tops? Any supports/ braces on the undercarriage? I only saw pics of them cutting the roof.

They fabricated a complete chasi brace that goes wheel well to wheel well and side to side. There is absolutely NO body roll at all in this car. This thing is as tight as it gets and handles better than it ever did before, and it's due to the bracing they did to ensure the body stays rigid and straight. I've even taken on the "Tail of the Dragon" and it performed just as good as the ZL1's that were with us in the corners.

Good to know! I'd love for mine to have T-tops!!! Structural integrity of the car would be my biggest concern.

Dude awsome build, but I don't know if this car is a true LT/RS because I saw something in your photos that makes me suspect that it is an LT camaro and it's not really a big deal but I'm kind of anal about labels.

It was the plastic steering wheel but maybe they just forgot to put the leather wrapped steering wheel on?

Its not that they forgot, in the early production models like mine the leatheret wrapped wheel did not come until the 2LT package, with the rest of the leather interior.
