...The only time I can here right now cause it's so damn hot during the day.

I looked and looked thru my emails and couldn't find where I ordered the mats from. But there's an email address on this thread:

Thanks for the good words on the underhood mods. It's just a start. Right now it ain't looing too pretty. Might have a bit to do with the RGB halo installation. I better get back out to the garage.

Roto-Fab bottle, I had to move(bend) the Pos battery post to make it fit.

I decided to mount the pump on the outside, not where the directions said. They said to mount it to one of the original washer bottle holes. I figured the whole point of the scoop is unobstructed air so I figured air would move better if it was not in the pathway.

Yessir! Wanted a ZL1...showed the wife the Stingray. She said "THAT'S IT...get that!" Wanted me to get a Z06 when I got my Camaro...I didn't want to. This Stingray is just off the charts though, so I had to.

I might be waiting a few months, but I'll enjoy my SS until I can sell it. I'll definitely post pics!

I will be posting video tonight to my build thread, but here is a good thread on install experiences now that the units have been shipping.

I would say moderate difficulty - biggest hassle was removal of some tiny torx screws in the headlight housing when swapping the LEDs, but with the amazing features, better/native look (IMHO) and non-bake method, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

My "Did today...": Washed the car and decided to give it the high-speed drying method on the highway rather than toweling it ;-)

After the last coat, while wet, just push on the plastic to make sure it's not touching anywhere. When it dries, slowly remove the bag and you should have no problem. Thats how i did it with no issue.

Changed the manual trans fluid. Used GM ATF. No shift quality change but none expected. Used slightly less than 4 QT's as others have said.
