Thats what I like to hear! You have goals and you can do it all. Do you have a journal I can keep track of your work?

Im starting to slow down a bit on the mods but if I catch a break I plan to go with the Eibach springs/sways. I have headers in mind also but just waiting to see what different companies come up with as far as results and $. I feel you on the wheels I'm aiming for spring-early summer. So far the Axiom wheels on that RB Camaro have my attention. I just cant decide on the finish

When your lights come on automatically at night just turn the switch once to the right and it should turn the auto lights off and only the halos will be on. I want to get those LEDs for the fogs and wire it up so they can be on all the time.

Nice journal. Love the time line of mods you did to your car. I read earlier that your thinking of upgrading to headers A friend of mine runs these headers on his v6 camaro and loves them. Car really woke up a bit after installing them. Good luck!
