Thanks guys
I'd like to do headers and cam, but I want to put some miles on it before I do a tune or a big cam package and throw away the warranty. Right now it's still under 800 since its my weekend cruiser and it's hard to rack up mileage out here :(
Oh, another update: called the dealer yesterday and they just got the rest of the parts in, so I should be able to get the car back Monday. Still not told if it'll be warranty since they haven't put it on the lift yet. Also more than a little aggravated that I've gotta be the one calling an asking for updates, but that's pretty common for Hawaii. :(

Thanks I had boxes of mods sitting in the living room waiting for the car for about a month! Lol
Now I'm just hoping to get the car back on Monday without any issue so I can spend the week tearing it apart an putting it back together

Sooo, finally got the car back from the dealership yesterday afternoon. I had it towed there on the 20th, and when I called them two days later they told me they'd identified the parts needed and should have it by Wednesday or Thursday the following week. I was pretty stoked, that's pretty fast for getting parts out here from the mainland!
Now, the really frustrating thing for me was that I always was the one calling to get updates about what's going on with my car. I know I didn't buy a luxury vehicle, but I sure didn't buy a cheap one either, and would like actual service...unfortunately, this particular gripe isn't limited to this dealer, it's consistent all over Hawaii. Oh, and also that I took leave this week so i could mod out the car some more :(
Anyway, naturally I call on weds and Thursday, then Friday, and was told that they got the parts in two shipment that afternoon, should be able to start install Monday.
I call Monday and Tuesday, the parts were installed, but apparently they didn't receive some nut that goes to the top of the strut? Wtf? Think I was fed some bullshit, bc the service writer didn't really seem to know what he was referring to either, but they were going to overnight the part.
I didn't bother calling weds since there's really not overnight service to Hawaii, and they were still going to put it on the lift for photos for the warranty claim.
Finally got the call Thursday afternoon saying it was ready for pickup. Up to this point they still wouldn't say if it would be warrantied or not, but made a point to say that they warrantied it just for me (riiiight)...at this point I think they finally started worrying about the satisfaction survey...
So, after 2.5 long weeks, I took it home and gave it a good bath, and this morning finally swapped my door abls to red

Glad ya got it back. GM really does stand behind their products... but you got to stay on 'em. From the lessons I have learned you really should keep track of every phone call and conversation.

How was the abl color swap? Piece of cake right?

yeah, the abl swap was pretty easy...got slowed down with the weatherstripping clips. the diagram i found in a thread here looked like i should be pulling the panel up/down to get those loose, instead of straight back
went down and looked at them powered up tonight, the dome light pretty much obliterates them lol. but i'll be a lot happier with them when i'm driving at night now, the bright blue bugged me.

The club seems to be 60% 5th Gen Camaro. Then about 25% corvette. Mustangs make up most of the rest.

Maybe next time the weather will be better and I will bring mine out as well. I should have some mods done by next Saturday night. And hopefully my customs plates finally get here

If you are anything like me you will be done tonight. Once I get started, it's full steam ahead until I finish.

Well, I got both headlights open. Tried to open the fogs but it sounded like I was about to break them so I'm stopping for the night so I can still get my workout in.
If anybody's got advice on opening the foglights I'd appreciate it

Hard at work...think I got the headlight part figured out. Also decided I'd use the fog halos as an inner eye instead since they're a good fit on the shroud I got. Here's a rough layout of the idea...nothing glued yet
