thanks ckatsu, i'm looking forward to when you and newb get the AGMs on island! how's your order progressing anyway?

plan for tomorrow: finish clay work, install catch can, possibly do a stock dyno run. if there's time after, install reverse leds and sidemarkers
Man I have no idea. I'm going to go down to the dealership tomorrow and check it out.

If no movement and there is still opportunity to change the order, then I think I'm going to go to a 2ss instead of a 1ss.

Thanks, It's being picked up today. You know i'll keep you informed, as that's what we are all about...information on our Camaros. Felt as though the bottom fell out of the shifter, so imo, it must be the linkage. Maybe an easy fix, but perhaps when you guys get your babys on a lift, check to insure all is tight in that area.

OzzySS...I see that you went to JN Chevy. Man, I hope they didn't rip you off. Their markups are so ridiculous.

BTW, I know that are where you live. If you ever see a white charger with black wheels in your area, that's me patrolling...looking for bad guys ripping off houses.

Thanks Dan, nah Myron did alright other than not being able to feed me info. I got GM pricing on mine from the beginning, plus some other incentives so I might out real good.

White charger? Is it the one Chad built up out at premier? Thanks for the lookout, swing by sometime if you wanna take a look at my toy. I'm out playing around this afternoon

Tram, what other cams have you looked into? Are you looking into cams only or cams and heads?

Well, I've hit every highway on the island now, and just hit 100 miles on the odometer. Been turning heads everywhere
Installed my can this morning, then clayed almost the whole car and decided to try some vrt on the hood. Not sure if I like it or not, mostly because it brought a lot of the blotches back into the light, like the where the trail of bird poo was lol.

I didn't like the VRT when I applied it either. After a day it mellowed. But we've had so much darn rain. I'll do it again in January (pending incessant rain) and see if it improves or if it like it. Will report my continued experience.

The vinyl wrapped hood sucks.... the car never looks clean... I have been using a matte detailer but the water marks are IMPOSSIBILE to get rid of.

When I have the chance I will have the hood painted.

Can you believe it was snowing when the tow truck showed up. He was understanding about the splitter, so together we took the time with various methods to get the car safely on his truck. Actually pulled out some 2x6 boards from behind my garage, to get clearance and all went well. I even took pictures to document ...I know,crazy huh?..Anyway, I don't expect to hear from the dealer till maybe monday. :(

Hey Ozzy, I meant to tell you your car looks awesome, and really glad it finally arrived. Like your pics,and my lady says the one with your friends child is "cute"...yellow and black like the car.lol. Sure envy you and the others in California, Texas, Louisiana, and other warm states, as some of us have snow, or nasty cold weather. Anyhow, get more pics up with that beautiful car and scenery!

You can peel off the vinyl and the hood is painted. Just need to remove the glue and polish it.

I don't have water marks on mine. Maybe because it rains so much. LOL.

Have you tried adding Garry Dean's infinite Use Detail Juice to your wash water as a softener? Also, and I'm sure you're doing this, not letting the water dry on the wrap? Using the sheet or pooling method to dry the hood with water has been working great for me ... in between the downfall.

Thanks! I'm working on it. I'll probably wind up hitting all 3 highways again tomorrow for photos with my roommate's friend.
There was a lot of great cars out today...saw a couple of good looking Boss's, a sweet Shelby GT500, and a few other 5th gens. Also found out a friend of a friend owns one of the two SGMs out here. Might have to see about hooking up with her for future photo ops

Now that looks sweet, exactly what I am doing once I get mine. Was It hard to do? Was there a lot of residue left over to remove? How long did it take to remove it?
