Ha thanks, man. It does look pretty good for doing it how I did it and in the conditions I was in, IMO.

I used plastic primer and then white paint for plastic. Then used a gloss clear.

I suggest, if you can, don't do it in windy conditions like I did. Haha. It was all I had though and it turned out okay for the most part.

Yeah I like the white interior trim a ton. Pics don't do it great justice as it looks kind of bright and even gaudy a bit (at least in my pics it does) but in person it's actually not too crazy and it's even subtle looking. It's just a bit brighter than the silver it comes stock.

Thanks for the kind words, Ivan. Yeah it's been a huge bummer. Got my new tires on and everything but the tow truck took my front splitter off and I've been driving around without it. Been trying to get Gary to put it back on for me but he's a hard guy to get in with, that's no joke, haha.

Dang...I did have DT short tubes on order and had to scrap that whole idea because I unexpectedly had to buy new tires. I'm getting married in February so you know how that goes.

As of right now I don't have anything too major planned. I still have my res x-pipe in my trunk that I need to have installed. I'm still debating on whether to keep my axle back on when I get it installed or if I will just have the shop take that off and add straight pipes.

Thanks for looking, man!

Are you going to be able to make a Meet and Greet in PC this month? Need to see that beautiful Camaro again. Supposedly Acatlover is setting something up (at least she said she was). Keep and eye out on the ECC thread or a new Meet and Greet thread.

Yeah I'll keep a look out for it because MJ, WMJ, and I would love to come to a meet and greet. Just as long as it's not the weekend of the 21-23rd I should put that on the ECC thread.

Mate -- that looks outstanding, what a build. A beautiful part of Florida, White Mary Jane fits right in!
You'll never get tired of mods. I'm nearly 3 years in and always thinking about whats next...Most i do myself, always satisfying...but then my misses keeps nagging me about "not spending anymore on that car!!!" I tell her the next mod is a turbo kit and only $200...she's not totally clued up
I have a question if you don't mind. I have been looking at several body kits, and always drawn back to razzi for the styling. However, i have the mach-xl Cat back's with 4" tips, nervous they simply won't fit or will be soon burning the paint off. Can you offer opinion please?

I have smoothed out and body colored the stock diffuser, so could just add side valances with side panels and splitter - if you advise not go razzi diffuser -- or change tips i guess

Thanks a ton,
Cheers, Mark

Yo I would be all over those DT's if I hadn't just had to buy new tires....and if I wasn't getting married in February!! That's a great deal....and you wouldn't have to wait for back order. Dang!!!

Thanks for the compliment, man!

Nice on the tb and tune!!! You'll have to let me know how you like everything.

Probably see you in a few weeks!

Haha....."only $200"...... Thanks for the compliments, man!!

I here ya, man the modding never ends. It's fun!! And like you I've done a lot things myself as well.

For the Razzi....I don't think you would have a problem with the tips being too big and doing anything to the fascia holes. The holes are pretty big. I have FM tips (not sure exactly what size but I'm thinking 3.5?) and I've never had one black spec or anythign from the tips on my rear fascia.

There are quite a few others with SS's who have the Razzi kit on here and some of them probably have 4" tips and I haven't heard of any of them having any problems with the paint melting or anything else.

So IMO I think you should go ahead with the Razzi diffuser!!
