Working on the fog lights. In the first shot, you can see the difference in the fog vs. DRL housings. No adjustability on the DRL's. I cut the lens off with a band saw. I didn't just slice it off in one shot, rather I just kept cutting and turning it just enough to get the lens to come off. Then, I installed the LED halo ring. These suckers are bright! They'll make great DRL's. I still need to epoxy the lens back on, then do the other side.

Hey FrankT,
Car is looking good =)!! Can't wait to see what it puts down numbers after the new intake setup. By any chance would you be able to help me out. I saw you are running the ADM rear widened wheel set up. Any chance you could PM me the width of the spacer you are running in the rear? I tried Pming Andy himself, I got the price, but no response after I agreed to buy a set. So I'm hoping to try and find them on my own. Once again any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Chris

There has been a few questions as to the widened wheels I have put on the car. I got these from Andy at ADM Performance. You can read more about it here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45729. The spacers are 1" wide and are HUB CENTRIC both inside and outside. If you get a spacer from someone other than Andy, make sure it is a hub centric spacer to locate the wheel properly. You can reach Andy at: 214-228-8782. He has been a great guy to deal with.

Also about the tires on the rear, they are Pirelli P Zeros, but a Ferrari spec tire that is a little stickier. Treadwear is only 160 vs. 220 for the stockers. The full spec is: 305/35 ZR20 (104Y). Discount Tire can get these (that's where I got mine).

Pfadt springs are here! My group buy springs arrived Friday. I hope the sways will be here on Monday. These should go on this week.

I'm running into a bit of a problem as far as making my fog/running lights work the way I want. First, one of the halo rings from AAC Style was defective, I'm still waiting for a replacement. Also, the way GM has designed this headlight- foglight- DRL circuit is not that simple. The DRL's are controlled by the BCM with a PWM (pulse width modulation) output. This is true for both the T4F (RS option) and the T4A (non-RS) headlight systems. In my 2006 GTO, they used a big power resistor to run the DRL circuit through to make the headlamps dimmer. Now, due to the PWM, I'm not sure if the voltage will be enough to run the halo rings to full brightness. This part I can work around by using a relay to get full voltage. The fog lights are the problem. They also are controlled by the BCM and I believe it has to be programmed for a RS OR non-RS car. The headlight switch for a foglight car does not use a simple switch to turn the foglamps on/off either. I'll probably have to internally modify the switch to make it do what I want it to do. It seems no mod is simple these days... I'll post more on this as I figure it out. I don't think it will be an undertaking for the unskilled or faint of heart.

Pfadt springs are being installed, look for pics and write up in a day or two. Super easy install so far. Spoke with Brandon at IPS Motorsports and ordered the BMR subframe connectors (SFC 015) and adjustable toe rods (TR 004). Brandon is super to deal with! He can be reached at: www.ipsmotorsports.net or 614-444-5884.

Pfadt sways are on now too. Rear bar was a piece of cake, but the front bar was a pain due to the turbo plumbing in the way. I ended up cutting the stock front bar to get it out. Pfadt bar went right in, though. Go figure. Pics and driving impressions coming soon...

I gotta say Frank, this car is looking really good. I like it because it is very classic, and clean. I can't wait to see it on the ground.
