Thanks, it's so lovely. They even drove it around the lot for me as it came off the transport truck. The vid is in the tread too.

Vacation is less than 10 days away now, I'll be picking up my baby then. This is the longest 10 days of my life.

To be honest with you I'm in Iraq right now. As far as I know it took them a day to install. Dealer did a vid for me the day my car arrived, the next day she sent me a pdf slide show of them prepping my car, Next day nother vid of them doing my GFX.

From experience I'd say an hour or two depending on how much experience the installer has under them. My experience is with doing Military installations so my estimate is a loose association at best too.

I've been thinking about that grille to. There are replacement badges available, I've seen them in billet and blackened.

If you install that grille please let us know (or post a pic) of the front of the car at night with the lights on. I'm concerned that the grille might block too much light. I emailed T-rex and they said it would be OK, but I want to know for sure before ordering one.

thanks!

Alright, I finally went with the Phantom grill. Still working on getting the car from the Dealers to the shop as soon as possible but hopefully that wont be much longer. Here is a link to a thread an they have a pic of the car with the grill in the evening and the lights on.

I think you can still order the parts through addicted auto as well.

god thats just horrific. with respect though, because anyone putting terrorists in the ground is a friend of mine.

Now all the people that promised me months ago that they could make my time line are dancing with excuses. That and I can't find a Supercharger or Twin Trubo for my baby.

Well, today is the 30th of Aug. an I'll be home on vacation in six days. I've managed to have everything completed as far as shipping but still having headache problems with my suspension set up.
I don't know what's going on but I know the US division doesn't know either. I know it sounds like I'm knocking them, but I want to say that I don't knock there product. Just don't make a promise you can't keep and then hide out like your to busy to return an email.
Anyway, still trying to locate a good power adder, a set of RS tail lights, and dual tips. I would like to get these before my vacation is over but will probably have to settle for just the tail lights and maybe dual tips. Hopefully Defender will have the blackout blinker covers as well when I pick up my car.

Thanks Prima, I haven't said anything yet but since I live in Florida and I'm picking up my car in California I'm going to take the kid to see his grandparents and then drive the car across country home. Try to stop in a couple places, get pics and write how the car handles and how I handle the long drive in the car. I've done many long distance drives in different types of vehicles so this is interesting.

Then go get your Foose and be happy, but don't come on My SPOT and talk crap about my ride because I can not only afford the rims I want but I've already ordered them and paid for them. Go hate on your own page. An when you get your Foose, let me know so I can show you how we congradulate around and not hate.

This isn't your "spot", it's a public forum. I simply made an observation that the rims you were getting look horrid on a camaro. If you like them then great.
