TAG UR IT, My son and I are looking forward to seeing your car at the show next weekend, we are heading down on Thusday. Can't wait. (I am holding out for the convertible so no Camaro yet).

Not sure...but...we have to plug those in somewhere. We land at 4:30pm on Wed and have to go straight to Toms to sign papers, etc. That comes FIRST! After that, not so sure.

Cool deal! Make sure you stop by and introduce yourself. I'm sure I'll be hanging around wearing my blue oakley sunglasses and Camaro5 shirt.

The nationals sounds like an awesome thing to attend. I am seriously considering taking time off next year and making a road trip. Does this event have a website or anything to check out ?

Got to be Primanti brothers. Excellent sandwiches but bring a BIG appetite! Yes let's do it. I'll see about getting ahold of beans and mouse. Have two of each color. Both great guys and SS drivers too

Ok...it's the Normandy bar and to Glenns custard. Something like that. Maybe we could meet for a bite first since my wife is really wanting to go visiting all of her family places. I have to fit these in or I'm toast. She's already complaining saying she wants to make this more than just a "car trip." But, that's what this is...... If I wanted to just fly up there and pick up a car, I would have done that a month ago! ARG!!!

Well....


Spoke to Rick this afternoon who said the vinyl letters will be ready for the cowl tomorrow morning. If they look good and it's what I was hoping for (correct font and size), then hopefully we can shoot it in that color. The only problem?

TIME.

We have to be ready on Wednesday....better yet, Thursday morning at the latest to head out to Carlisle. I don't know how paint could be sprayed and it be ready to be driven so quickly. I dunno....I'm no painter, but I thought it might need more time.

Your SS looks great.
Now just get some shoes!
I know what you are saying about the tail section. The silver would look good
if the bumper didn't mold into that section.
I can't wait for mine, I don't keep anything stock and like to be original. Keep up the great posts.

Toms paint guys painted the bow ties and SS's blue for me. The blue color is called wave blue metallic and it's from the 08 GM chart.

Thanks a lot for the compliments. I really appreciate it. As far as cost....
All the paint is getting up to about $1,700. We are still working on figuring out the man hours to get it done. All the other stuff will come in time.

Thank you!
I have become so used to sitting in this computer chair typing on this computer with the hope that one day it would be a reality. I just can't even believe that the reality is going to be here tomorrow...everything that happened. I mean, I'm like....the luckiest guy on earth! What the heck did I ever do to deserve all of this??? I dunno.... I'm just....sh!t, I'm not going to be able to fall asleep.... And I have to get up in 6 hours....ugh....only to get on a plane and fly all day..... The only bad part about this whole experience? I have to leave the boys at home. Lord knows I would do anything to have my 4 and 2 year olds there with us. :(

I can't get off this darn site...lol...

Sitting in the airport.....waiting for the plane.

Tom got the "THR SS" fixed for the car. Going to hold off until we get there to see the template before adding paint. If we like the template, which I hear looks pretty darn good, we'll have the paint put on EARLY tomorrow morning before we leave for Carlisle. I am 99% sure we are goinig to go ahead and put the paint on the hood.
