Installed GFx style splitter, Plastidipped my wheels, tinted my lights all around, swapped camaro fender emblems for "black" concept ones, couple more coats of zaino. If all goes well with shipping, I may even get my new grills on by the RICOA show. Here she is as she sits now.

I guess this is the proper place for such things. I did a bit of work a while back on my car, I finished it all in May. Installed a AFM delete and cam, then LT headers and high flows, then a stall converter, oil pump, and timing chain.

It started like this


And then progressed to this




From there it went deeper


Eventually extraction was necessary


And when it was all over it was time for a shower and some wax


Sorry I don't have any pictures of the re-installation of the parts as it was a non stop slug fest during that time. Did the work myself with the help of a few friends so no time for pic's But it was one hell of a learning curve and thank god its behind me now. Gone are the days of vibration and droning due to the AFM, in are the times of power and noise Thanks for looking guys

Nice work! I see liquid courage was involved in the tear down.

I put mine on right on the car. Full pre-cut blackout set. Some needed a tiny bit of trimming, but a sharp razor took care of that.

Also my new lowered look... can't believe it took me this long! Better ride and better looks!

Yeah, they're on the driver side only... I took the picture from the "plain side" because my buddy is currently using my driveway to store his old BMW 318ix... I felt like it would be an affront to the Camaro community if an eyesore like that was in the background!

On a related note, they are probably coming off, they got stained with something and I may try matte black next... or maybe carbon fiber?

I did them myself, springs are no problem, sways are even easier since you're disconnecting end links anyway for the spring install. Minimal tools required, I think 13mm, 15mm, 21mm and 24mm sockets/wrenches and a couple other assorted tools. Hardest part is the 24mm bolts on the front shock, I had to buy a breaker bar to get them loose. Spring compressor is recommended, not required if you're careful.

In the spirit of the community, I've got a decent garage and tool box, I'd be happy to offer them up as well as help out

My brother Jim and a budy took my car to get stripes and went a little crazzy. They also did the hood and strut brace. I think I like just the 1le on the hood
