Mods must be approved by me and may include:
- fluid changes (oil, manual transmission, rear differential)
- bulb installs
- shifter installs
- skip-shifter eliminator installs
- CAI installs
- brakes (pads, calipers, lines, bleeding)
- underside cleaning

Tools available:
- four-post lift with bridge jack for lifting one end of car off its wheels
- jacks & jack stands
- common hand tools
- cleaning supplies (paper towels, hand cleaner, hose, bucket, wash mitt, soap, Porter Cable polisher) [Bring your own towels, polishes/waxes]

Food:
- Water, sodas & ice will be available
- Breakfast @ 9 - coffee & donuts
- Lunch @ 12 – Pizza delivered from Bentino’s (NOTE – I moved pizza to lunch time instead of dinner time like last year.)
- Dessert @ 3 – Homemade ice cream

Waste Oil Heater:
We now have our waste oil heater operating so if it is cold outside, we can work on our cars inside at a comfortable temperature. If you have any waste oil to dispose of, I will be glad to take it off your hands.

How you can help:
- Bring any parts and instructions for anything to be installed


- Bring any special tools that may be needed for installation (unless you've confirmed such tools will be available)


- IROCanSS – If at all possible you must bring William to introduce him to our Camaro group. Perhaps you can convince both Scott Settlemire and Al Oppenheiser to come in Camaro ZL1s to top last year’s appearance from Scott.

- hrpiii – Perhaps you would invite you friend, Madonna. You don’t need dress up in your Roman garb and carry her in as far as I’m concerned (unless others insist). Also, with your Roman contacts, perhaps you can hook us up with some of those scantily clad slaves like in Spartacus.

- rachykells – Perhaps you would provide medical care when IROCanSS draws blood working on the cars.

- LadyinBlue – Feel free to bring your Corvette again. I will be inviting two other Corvette owners.

Tentative Attendees & Mods Planned:

I will be inviting a family friend who held some world drag racing records in his day. If we are lucky, he will bring the Chevy “Underdog” he used to get those records. He is also an expert on Muncie and Borg Warner T10 transmissions if anyone happens to need such help.

I will rent a portable restroom again.

LOL! I am in, and I will bring my slippers. No word on the driveshaft loop yet, Frank is working on making something that works...

other dates that are free for me:

3/10, 3/11, maybe a few others... there are some things going on that I may be able to bug out of. I really want this stuff on my car!

I spoke with a mutual friend about bringing something with him... hes not sure yet... He needs more information.


I am good with either pizza at the shop or out.

William will be there!

Mrs. IROCanSS requests hrpiii be in his Roman garb... sorry!

As of now I can make it to almost any of those dates, but I likely won't have my Camaro.

I may get it back in mid May, but that's a long shot. If I do have my car, then I might try to put the dash ABL lighting in it.

I would love to do some hands-on help with mods. I've learned how to take the front facia off and can help with things like Heritage Grill installs.

Good luck with your Camaro. I cringe when I see the pictures of it so disassembled.

Woo Hoo!

Been looking forward to this since we finished the fall cruise.

I don't think I can wait to put the halo's and wind restrictor on since both should be here within the week so you can take those off my list.

I'm good for any weekend except the end of March and end of May, I picked up a new project at work that keeps me off 2nd shift and frees up my weekends but I have to travel between here, LA and Alabama some.

Me too. But, it can only get better from here. (That's my attempt at a positive attitude.)

My 1976 Camario was once stripped more than yours and I got it put back together.

Keep that positive attitude.

I am going to try and make it over with hrpiii this year to see you guys! I am flexible on dates (except into May), and won't need any mods installed - just a social visit.

Mods: I'm definitely going to have OBX LT headers for install and would like to do an RX catch can if we have time.

Date: I don't know what weekends I'll have to work yet. I'll find out when I start at the hospital on the 12th. Hopefully if there's a date in stone by then, I can ask to not work that weekend. Looks like a lot of people are busy in late spring-- I'd totally be down for doing it March 10 or 11 but I'd need to know ASAP so I can order the parts.

And I don't mind providing medical care... even for Jason.

Blech! Dirty diapers. That is one thing I cannot do. I can handle bowel surgeries, hip & knee replacements, c-sections... but poop and vomit is not cool.

So, just putting it out there now that Rach does NOT change diapers as part of said "medical" care. :P

Seems I'm on permanent PM timeout, so I have to post in the thread.

I don't currently have any mods to do, but I still want to be there to help out and check out the other mods - especially to see how difficult it is to install the LTs.

These dates are out for me:
3/10 - son has basketball regionals
3/17 - daughter volleyball tourney
3/18 - daughter volleyball tourney
3/24 - daughter volleyball tourney
4/15 - daughter volleyball tourney
5/5 - daughter volleyball tourney

I am going to do at least one of the new intake manifold isolators. I might even follow through on my crazy idea to combine the RX isolator with the Aussie 25mm isolator. I think the RX one does a better job at keeping heat from the intake manifold, but the Aussie one is thicker so the runner length is increased. This is a simple mod, so I might just do it on my own.

I would like come, but date will dictate.
As like every year, no sundays for me and the 2nd saturday of every month is out.

My car is not coming out of the garage until April, and then the weather (if we get a freak snow storm) will dictate the car coming out as well.

Oh, you have May 5th and the 6th as Sunday on your list, just a minor typo

April 28 or 29/ May 5 or 6 are fine for me and my detail boy.

L3gend will be there provided we aren't total morons at rebuilding his carb between now and then. Anything is possible, however, as it looks like it's never been rebuilt in all its 34 years.

Merlin mods probably will depend on the budget between now and Mod Day. Nothing drastic unless somebody knows somebody who can port out Merlin's intake manifold so the insulator/ported manifold/headers/tune can be done all in one fell swoop. Oh - so much for the budget if that happens...

I have a book on Rochester Carburetors if it would help you.
