Big shout out to Emblem Pros for an amazing set of custom badges at a great price. The orange is so glossy you can see your self in it. I love the look they just melt in with the car.

Here's some more. MGW shifter with retro knob. Untill my custom shift knob comes in i have a 8 Ball shift knob from auto zone...it sucks. But the MGW shifter rocks love the throw. MGW needs to include specific instructions for the V6 as it is a bit different. But it still only took about 2 1/2 hours by myself and PS make sure the insulation is cut close around the install bolts and pushed all the way down together to cut out any noise. Anyway my VMAX ported throttle body came in. Painted IOM. I only took it for a short drive but i can tell the throttle lag is gone it accels so much better.

Well ive tried Plasti Dip and while it is a good product im just not good at using it. I plasti diped the rear tail light bezels and those turned out great so i decided to try my luck on the interior dash and door inserts. I do not like the finish the color is inconsistant and in the doors i got spots and i have no idea how they got there but until i save up for some real ABL IOM inserts this will have to do. I think the doors need a few more coats but i ran out of paint. I have the glossifier but i didnt use it. BTW while i was taking off my doors i noticed an extra conector that was not being used i think it is for ABL but i didnt think the conectors were there if the car didnt have that option installed? Any way heres the pics. Oh yea and i used the factory Camaro emblems plasti diped them and super glued them on. ( i wished they look as good in the pics as they do in real life)

Well i went out and changed some lights. I bought a 10 pack of Leds off of ebay for 10 bucks and strangely they worked great i put them in the license plate lights, dome and truck lights and had enough left for the side marker lights but i dont want them any brighter so i wont. I also changed the headlights with a pair of Recon Diamond White headlights. They work great but i guess i was expecting more. They arent any brighter than the originals just whiter and look better but i guess i was just expecting more. Oh and BTW if your just goin to replace the original little lights dont waste your money on the silver star verisons there no brighter there the blue one.

Well it took about a month to get here but i finally my custom shift knob is here. Shout out to Epco for a great knob. Its looks black but its actually clear black splash so they call it. Basically it starts clear and then they inject black stuff so the black stuff looks like smoke whisps. LS on top and Camaro new style logo on each side in orange. Looks great love it.

Well got bored so i decided to Plasti Dip the side marker lamps. I removed the front and back. I have 1/8 inch pinstripe tape laying around so i used that to create the line. I put the tape over where the reflector part starts on the top of the light. After i lit them back up i realized the edgeing around the light was not painted and the light showed through the small gap between the light and the body. So i took them back out and repainted the edges. BTW you will need about 8 coats to keep the light from shining through the paint. Its not led good but not bad. It definitely takes the eye away from the lights and makes them less of an eyesore.

Catch Can Works

Well im glad that i decided to install the RX Catch Can ASAP on my car after i got it. I drained the can and i did get a bit of oil out of it which i am so happy to know it works. Its also great to know only just a bit came out after 5000 miles that includes a day at the strip and IDK how many WOT fun times. Im not hard on my car i just drive it how i feel. I cant belive i already have 9500 miles on it and im changing the oil for the second time. Time flys when your having fun . Anyway it only filled this standard red cup to the bottom start of the design.

Well i guess you could say i won 2nd at a car show. Its a small victory though as there was poor turnout even though it was a nice day prolly due to poor advertising. I just happened to be at a festival and they had a car show spot set up so i just drove over and entered and then left to go check out the festival. Well only 10 or so cars showed up. Out of the General Motors category i got 2nd a fully restored 57 Belair got 1st and i some how beat a restored 31 pontiac convertable as it placed 3rd and last was a nice 87 Monte Carlo SS 305. Its kind a funny too because the trophys placard had been messed up by the company who made them so it says 2nd place Corvette instead of 2nd Place General Motors.
