I thought I read somewhere that the 1LE comes with a Factory Catch Can? Could be mixing it up w/Z28? Just seem to remember reading about a stock Catch Can.

Painted my (Skylane765) Splitter Washers, which I absolutely love, Black. Now they are pretty much invisible. Looked pretty sharp in stainless, but I'm going for that dark menacing look, so now they have virtually disappeared. Yes I used BBQ Black paint, dries in fifteen minutes so I did two coats then reinstalled. It was recommended by my local custom exhaust shop. I was asking what paint would work best on blackening my exhaust tips, caliper or header paint, this is what they said they Always use, it can take a lot of HEAT and holds up for a very long long time. So figured I'd give it a try.

Now this picture I'm hoping Mister Detailer himself (CharlieTuna) will see it, because I always picturing him having a microfiber towel in his pocket, just in case. Anyway I somehow got a scuff mark on my splitter and not sure how to make it disappear. Won't rub off. Any solutions, anybody out there? Here's the pic, not sure what caused it.

I know its not much of a scuff or really a big deal, but if there's a way to get rid of it I'd like to give it a shot!

Went to a small cruise and took a pic of a Mustang! I like the '66 fastbacks, and this one was sharp. That's mine in the background

After work on this Father's Day I installed my T4 splitter with the help of my Dad! He wanted to just "tek screw it on" but we did it the right way.

Well, it wasn't today but last night I did a complete detail including another coat of Americana. Man I love that stuff! Today-drove the crap out of it with the top down!

Happy Fathers Day to all of the Dads out there!

You are 100% correct! The factory catch can that comes on the 1LE is for the clean side. I installed an RX catch can for the dirty side. It's great to have both.

Beautiful cars!!

I finished up my 3 day Camaro cleaning spree when we had a freak band of clouds form just long enough for me to wash the exterior. I thought the effect of the cloud pattern reflecting on the hood was pretty.

Excited for this week... her new spoiler is in the process of being painted so it is only a matter of days until I see it on her! Then it's on to saving for side rockers and a splitter.

Did the DIY Afterburner tail lights. Put on one more coat of plastidip on the rear bezels. And replaced the passenger side mirror.

You might want to "unplastidip" those lights if you actually plan on driving that car on the road!
