I've already got my suspension squared away, but if a reputable shop did a full line of installs for suspension work and that sort of thing, they'd make some CASH there.

I'd be hard pressed to leave without doing something for my rear diff. (yes I originally typed "rear end" but I changed it).

Get any work you want done before you go or wait until you get home. Installs were few and far between on site.

Raymonds, here in Indy is awesome with these camaros. He will install anything you have, but it will be at the shop probably, not at the fest itself. I think he posted some info on that.

Here's mine at the front (early am) . I was lucky to be one of the first 5 or 6 in line.
Got my footwell lighting and bling door handles installed at the same time.
Got a free Oracle t-shirt too.

HEX Vents will be going to the next Camaro 5 Fest. We'll be doing free installs with the purchase of a set of vents with splash trays ($349).

Simple installs are one thing but do not get your hopes up for any serious installs being available at the track. The logistics of transporting and setting up the necessary equipment is difficult, if not impossible, and the costs to do so are high. You also have to pay the install crew and cover their travel and lodging costs. Then you have to consider how many actual installs could be performed in the time allotted. It takes about 2 hours to install a set of sway bars, 2.5 hours to install a set of drop springs, 3 hours for rear cradle bushings, etc.. You are talking about 3-4 install per day at most. And then there is the biggest problem. Liability concerns for the company performing the install, Camaro5, and the facility if something bad happened. The business case for it is not just weak, it is nonexistent.

But if we buy from you will one of your employees offer free hugs with each purchase? I guess we should get to pick the employee as well.

Free hugs from an employee, yes. Unfortunately for you, it's me.
