Today was DELIVERY DAY! I got home from the dealer and then went for a cruise with my husband. It's now home and tucked in the garage. Here are some pictures from today!

Thanks to all of you who posted your pictures and put up with me for the last couple of months while I waited to get my car. It would have been a lot more difficult without you all!

Thanks. I fear C5 fest falls at a time when I can't get away for a weekend. I hope that perhaps the next one will be in the summer when my schedule isn't so frantic. I'd really love to meet so many of you folks who have become good friends.

CamaroScotty,
I feel I owe you a debt of gratitude. You saved me $750 by pointing me toward the USAA membership. The rebate went through just fine. Thank you!

Thanks to all of you for your kind words.

I went out to the garage this morning and got my ipod working. It wouldn't work for me yesterday. I have an older 5th generation iPod "classic" 60GB (it's at least 4 years old) and the music system couldn't find it yesterday. So, last night I did a firmware update on it. Now it works great! The music clarity is MUCH better than the XM radio which I played yesterday. Although, the Lou Reed tune I listened to on XM as my first track was very cool as I was driving my baby off the dealer's lot.

After I got the iPod working, I got out the car cover and covered it up until the weather breaks. It's now sitting in the garage all tucked in its gray OEM cover. It was a short but sweet first day.

Love the CGM w/black, of course, a little bias here. to add to your CGM/Black, go with blackouts on the brakelights and side markers.. it looks awesome!!!!

hrpii,
Thanks for the note. Yeah, I really love the CGM. I am going to have black hood spears painted on, I think with "6.2L" stencil on them. I also plan to black out the strip between the taillights, have fades painted on the gills, and blacking out the bow ties. Window tinting too. As soon as the weather breaks, I'll be doing these things.

I am thinking about blacking out the taillights, side markers, and backup lights. I haven't yet decided what the best way to do that is. Suggestions are welcome.

I'm debating on powder coating the wheel's like novocaine's car which you can see here:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...1&d=1260742473

I already have the leds to replace my dome light and trunk light (in blue), my rear license plate lights (white), and my DRL's. I am waiting for the weather to warm up a bit to put them in.

I'll post more pics here as all this work is done.

Detailed my car for the first time with Adam's products

Washed, clayed, polished, and waxed my car yesterday. I used all Adam's products. Here are a couple of pictures:

A couple people have asked me what exactly I did to detail my car, so I thought I'd post it here if anyone else is interested.

Here are the steps I did and the products I used:

2 bucket wash using Adam's car wash shampoo and wash mits (my buckets have grit guards)

dried the car using an Adam's great white drying towel and detail spray

clayed the car (including windows) using Adam's clay bar and detail spray

applied Adam's VRT to all the rubber and vinyl trim as well as tires

used Adam's revive polish with Adam's applicator

wiped the paint down to remove polish residue with detail spray and an Adam's microfiber towel

applied Adam's Americana wax and wiped it off with a clean Adam's microfiber towel

washed the windows with Adam's glass cleaner (that stuff is GREAT! no streaks!)

used Adam's glass sealer on the windows (this isn't available yet on Adam's website, but will be soon. I had the good fortune of getting a free sample of it and it's fab!)

finally, I applied a light coat of Adam's brilliant spray glaze to the paint and wiped it off with an Adam's microfiber towel

Note: I washed and treated the rims exactly as I did the paint on the car because my wheels are painted aluminum.

It took some time, but I'm a total noobie at this.

By the way, I watched Adam's videos first on the Adamspolishes.com web site. I also watched the Junkman's videos on youtube. They explain everything.

If you buy some Adam's products, use the coupon code: JUNKMAN to get 10% off.

I hope this helps!
