Definitely will once the parts begin to get painted. There are still some other parts that need to be fitted before painting starts.

It definitely won't be a let down. My painter loves the hood as well.

My new Forgestar CF10s are in the Machined phase. Only about a month left until they are delivered
Should have some updated pics on the paint work soon as well!

UPDATE:

Painting should begin Wednesday.

On another note, last night my uncle passed away. He was the one that owned the 68 coupe that I posted pics of above. He was a gear head like me and I'm am hurting extremely bad after hearing of his passing. I am deployed and Red Cross won't send me back for his funeral because of him not being immediate family even though he was very close to me. I will most likely be getting his Mustang and keep it in my possession til my day comes. Not going to let them sell it to some low life that will abuse it. Already planning on a repaint and some custom airbrushing on the quarter panel in remembrance of him.

Great tribute Matt and a good way to remember him and honor him with airbrush work on his ride!

Sorry for your loss and that really sucks red cross wont let you go to the funeral, not sure how i would handle that. Very strong of you to keep thinking in a good way, i honestly would have flipped. Keeping that mustang would be a amazing way to show respect to him with you driving a chevy and we all the rivalry there. Best of luck and try and keep your head up.

Thanks kold.


UPDATE:

According to the Forgestar tracking, I should have my new rims in a little over 3 weeks.
Strut brace and splitter are being painted this afternoon. Will hopefully have some more pics in the next day or so.

Since I will be deployed longer then expected, I have now started looking to raise my budget for a daily driver. Have my eyes set on the new Cruze diesel
Also might be in the market for a used pick up and trailer
Only time will tell though.

Matt, so sorry to hear about your uncle. Please let me and the rest of your SC Camaro buds know if we can help in anyway.

When you get back remind me to show you some pics of my first real hot rod - a 1970 Mustang Mach 1. I still can remember how that thing sounded and felt. In those days I was running what we called a Crane 3/4 race cam. We'd probably call that a stage 3 cam today. Now that thing would lope! Cool ideas you have for your uncle's Mustang. I'd love to see it as well.

Now on to this crazy idea about a trailer - do not make your Camaro a trailer queen!

Thanks Dan. One of my uncle's friends actually has a '70 Mach 1 fast back. Really nice car. Reason why I would consider the truck and trailer would be for moving reasons. You can't tow a Camaro with a Cruze
It would be for things like PCS moves, shelter so nobody screws with it in the parking lot (also a benefit for bad weather) and to transport it to shows, trips, etc. Other then that, the Cruze is my best bet.

A little more off topic.

I have been getting to do some shadowing and training with the K9 unit here overseas for the past month and I can say it is one of the most amazing jobs I have ever had the privilege of being part of. I plan on reclassing in the military to a handler so I can work with these dogs everyday. The amount of lives these guys have saved is huge and I want to be a part of it more then anything. This is me and Oscar, an Explosives and Narcotics Detection Dog and by far the coolest canine I have ever met. There is a good chance that I'll be leaving here next week, so him and me spent the day hanging out and allowing him some personal time which he rarely gets. Will definitely miss this pooch.

Can anyone guess what these are parts for?

The rest of the kit should be delivered in a couple of days.
