I attempted to get one done.

I spent a few hours under my car yesterday trying to place my cut-outs.

Decided it couldn't be done without welding and my motors were too big.

Today went a muffler shop and decided the motors were just too big for this car.

I tried................................. I failed.

I like the blade cutoff but it just won't fit on these cars. I'll buy QTP this time.

It's like the quit smoking thing.

I used to say "Ya, I quit smoking about an hour ago. I'll pick it up again here in a few minutes and then I'll quit again."

Houses and cars share a common "problem": they're NEVER "done"...

President Pete, would you allow me to propose a 12-Step Program?! Especially for those requiring a cardio workout...we don't want ANYONE "winded" after just a few steps...

BTW, "cardio" refers to VISA/M-C/AMEX/DISCOVER/DINER'S CLUB...

The "I'M A MOD-A-HOLIC" OFFICIAL 12-STEP PROGRAM

Step1 - Acquire a Camaro!

Step 2 - Drive it some...make a note of (or actually write) a list of all the things "they" forgot...

Step 3 - Sit in a comfortable chair in your driveway/garage/parking spot and ponder it...FULLY...

Step 4 - Poll the opinions of all those folks whose ideas you might welcome...

Step 5 - Arrive at a personal concensus...

Step 6 - Start modding...at the very beginning...but don't forget:

Step 7 - Zaino...and a ShamWOW...and a Schticky!

Step 8 - camaro5fest!!!

Step 9 - Cruises...and motorsports, both viewing AND participating!

Step 10 - Don't forget to budget...and...just when you think you're "done"...

Step 11 - Don't forget to RE-BUDGET!

Step 12 - Visit camaro5...as often as you can...where your "support group " ALWAYS awaits you!

My name is LOWDOWN...and I'm a Mod-A-Holic!!!

BTW, I spoke with TRAN, and he confirms the term "MODERATOR", used here by you-know-who(s), is because he found ALL these guys @ "our" meetings...

...which means, if you're "afflicted", a BAN-HAMMER could someday show up in your mailbox!!

BONUS!!

When I ordered my Camaro I swore that I would do nothing but, routine maintenance.........my friends just laughed at me.
I started with a heritage grille telling myself "It's what Chevy should have done at the factory, I'm only righting a wrong"......now many parts and thousands of dollars later I CAN'T STOP.....my name is Kevin and I am an addict!

Crap! I own 2 condos and own 3 sets of wheels for the camaro. Does it help that each set is a different size? I don't have a problem. Just because I waste all my time on a car forum and work, so I can mod my car.

I also think I should sell this one and start over on a new one... when I finish this one.
