Took a rock to the roof when driving back from NY... only about 40 miles to go when I heard a loud thud. Chip to paint and primer.

Thats the third chip in my paint so far. two on front bumper and one on roof. Hoping to get one in each panel just for good measure........................................

Installed a set of Sullivan Products pedals...while I was installing 'em, I noted that the masking take used to mark the holes for mounting showed thru the pedals...and I was using blue tape. That gave me the idea of using red tape which matches the color scheme of the rest of the car. I think it turned out ok. I also used some touch-up paint to add a bit of red in the centers of the attaching screws.

I also replaced the incandescent driving lights with LEDs. Much better; white light instead of yellowish.

A large part of the weekend was spent at 2 car shows (one with a pinup contest...my car made a nice background for a couple of the models). After the shows, I decided to go apeshit and ordered $1200 worth of parts, including "light show halo" lights and a buncha underhood stuff.

Then I've been editing photos to put on my server. Here's a link to one of the shows' photos:

Now it's time to start on the red ABL kit.

My nephew plastidipped a few items for me:

1) right and left side camaro emblems
2) front and rear bow tie emblems
3) brake light besels

I think he did an excellent job.

Get a 2x4 and put a piece under each tire. Drive on to help give you the needed clearance.

Painted my Strut Tower Braces Black, Flat Black that is, actually the same spray paint I'll be using for my taillights and back/bottom of mufflers. No picture, looks the same as so many others have done. Still, it looks better than before! Will change out the bolts once I find the right look, just painted the factory ones for now. I know I know, the paint is not going to hold up on the bolts. I actually touched them up after tightening them since they scuffed a little bit.

Not necessarily true. As long as your not taking them off and on all the time they should hold up just fine.
Here is mine after I installed it and no touch up was done just went slow tightening them down.

Also I added splash guards to the front will do the rears when I get ZL1 rockers.
