Nice story and I like how you are doing your own mods. I have a wish list just as long as yours, but remember, just take small steps at a time and you'll get to your goal eventually. It's the Journey that makes owning these cars exciting!!

I totally agree I am in no rush at all, well that is kinda a lie, I have a car show in June so I am trying to get some stuff done before then lol but other than that I am in no rush for any of the major mods.

So for the fuze box cover I decided to go with no letters for now and I must say it looks pretty snazzy well here is a pic of it, don't mind the messy engine bay. I may end up later painting the letters black and seeing how it looks on there.

So today I painted my engine cover and man did that take long. It took forever masking everything off and then took awhile touching up everything. I must not of put the cover back on right because the left side of it was hard to take off initially and when I put it back on it is easy to take off so there must be something I didnt do right but o well. I also did not realize that the middle bowtie was a sticker, I thought I would of been able to just pop it off and put it back on later but I was wrong and I ended up bending it some and reattached it with 3M tape. Now the black script Camaro decals are from BowtieBelle who was generous enough to pay it forward to me. Here are pictures of the process:

I ended up ditching the engine cover do to future plans. -2.5lbs

So I went to inquire about tinting my windows to see how much it would cost. They told me it would be $160 for 35% for the sides and rear and I felt bad just walking out so I said what the heck and scheduled myself an appointment in 2 weeks to get them done. This seems like a good price but whos knows, my refund check will be able to cover it so I am happy

I noticed that you have painted calipers on your wish list. I just did this mod last weekend on mine. I used G2 orange it only cost $40 and you dont have to remove them to paint them. Just do good a masking job and you will be fine. I posted a few quick pictures of mine here to give you an idea of what they will look like.

You are doing a nice job on yours.
