(I decided to just live with it the second time rather than risk something worse)


Yeah, obviously my stripes are painted......but I know both of those guys have done vinyl on cars and other vehicles and people were happy with the work that they did. Bowers signs did some vinyl things on my neighbors Camaro and he also did the vinyl lettering on the FOP event trailer............he did that like overnight and it looks awesome....can get pics when I get to work on Monday night.
Bowers also does the lettering and striping on all of our police vehicles

Damn, had I known they would fetch that kind of money I would have given a bit more thought to getting a 1LE...that would more than cover the cost of the wheels I wanted as well as getting the hood painted to match the rest of the car.

The 391s were the main reason I was interested in that package to begin with...I had no idea the black on the hood was just a wrap...

Definitely considering the 391s...sounds like the place being doing it on mentioned on Facebook has the whole process down. I suspect the people with automatics notice a much more drastic change than the people with manuals.

Very true...havent heard if I would need to update the clutch or anything else as far as manuals go. Have you heard whether or not this is something that can void the warranty? (Assuming OEM parts are available now)

no it will not void the warranty .. i believe so... but you will need a tune.. i know RPM can tune it for you or you can take it to the dealership..
but with the clutch.... no. lol i mean unless you are close to 500HP... i know with headers / gears/ and a tune ill be close to 500 at the flywheel (CAI, full exhaust and other mods i have)... i had people tell me to replace my Driveshaft and clutch before the upgrades but ive seen so many people still running stock parts. but if you are just doing gears right now.. im pretty sure your clutch will hold.. till you hit 500+hp
