2014-15 Winter Mods

It's that time of year boys and girls. Post up your winter mods and ideas for others to see and steal.

First up for me, my tail light bezels are on their way to Lupe at River City Creations to be painted body color. Lupe did my fog light bezels last winter and they look great.

Floor and trunk in the 73 and hopefully some more of the metal work if I can get through those. Nothing on the ZL1.

Throttle Controller, Icelator so far. Probably plasti-dipping my front fender for the winter months ahead.

It's easy to do fishing line and some adhesive dissolver/sticker remover. I like the camaro on the side personally but everyone has their own tastes. That Carbon Fiber material from autozone is a bitch to work with i wish you luck.

Awesome. Thanks for the info! Will be doing the front badge tonight, cause I can take it off and work on it inside with a blow dryer. Gonna look long and hard at the camaro lettering on the side and see what I want to do. Did a test run on the back of my Galaxy S5 with the carbon fiber wrap. It's easy if its heated up. Room temp or colder makes it a PITA.

I told myself that I wasn't going to spend a lot this year, like I did last year. Was thinking about getting some interior pieces painted by Lupe. Maybe a couple of other minor mods. Then I find myself looking at new wheels.......oh no, here we go again...

Thinking we might get the time to tune our shop car (2010 1SS) and hopefully put a new clutch in it as our fearless leader tried to grenade it upon launch at Piedmont Dragway one night not to long ago on his way to a less than stellar pass. Too many project cars and not enough time or money.

My plan is to finish our 80 TA. It's all apart with a fresh LS motor and 6 speed tranny on the floor waiting.

I am not doing anything but putting together my plan for the Spring. I hate the winter.

E-Force SC just came in, but will wait till spring before I install it. Need to decide on what gauge setup I'm going with and if I'm going to do any fuel system upgrades. Might just go with a conservative tune first time around and do the fuel system next year. And of course, always looking for a good wheel setup.

I'd love to do a 10% lower, ported throttle body, big gulp and not tell any of my friends with Corvettes and let them see what happens at the track in the spring. ;-)

And continue on my '67 project in my signature.

ya I figure its one last thing to add to the car as far as looks. has anyone in this group used the r1's if so how do you like them and I do want to do the ceramic pads as to hopefully get rid of the squeeking and help with the break dust.
