Tune and tail light ordeal!

The Jannetty Racing Custom Tune installed 5/31/12. Ted is super helpful and answers emails amazingly fast!!

I ordered the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Technostalgia Tail Light from Car Parts Wholesale, do *NOT* ever order anything from them again!

I received 2 tail light assemblies. After 3 days, they told me that's what I get, when the part that I ordered clearly said 4! I have returned them and am awaiting my $407.00 credit.

Live and Learn...

Sway Bars

I installed SLP front and rear sway bars on 7/7/12 - 7/8/12.

The rear went on easily, the front needed a slight bit of "persuasion".

I still have lower control arms, adjustable toe links, chassis and strut tower braces from Lakeside that need installing.

I also have SLP 1" lowering springs and to be installed.

I also have a AR Performance carbon fiber splitter that will be last to be installed.

Smile Rear Lights

I finally got the Technostolgia Tail Lights delivered so I decided last night it was time to pull the bumper and add them and the LED back up lights I had waiting to be installed.

The bumper came off very easily and the reverse lights went in effortlessly.

The Technostalgia lights were a bit more difficult but they went in smoothly and worked properly first time! I haven't done anything with the "show" line yet, I have it safely tucked away in the trunk.

I'm going to start the lowering spring install tomorrow morning. I have all the necessary tools except a 21 MM wrench and the spring compressor. I'll get them this afternoon and start right after my weekly visit with mom and dad.

I have Monday and Tuesday off to give me time to finish and get a good alignment before I have to make the long commute.

The lights look great!
