So getting REAL close....

Car is entirely painted. They have wet / dry sanded the car and are in the final hours of sanding. The rear of the trunk needs to be sanded and polished. The stereo system has had some glitches with the blue tooth module BUT brought in a specialist to hopefully finish it up tomorrow. Brad (the interior guy) comes into "heat shrink" the ultra leather on Wednesday. Tire alignment at the tire shop next door - previous alignment was not right. Final fabrication on getting the square MBRP chrome tips to work with the flow master mufflers tomorrow. Put the window in the hood on Wednesday night as well as reinstall the interior.

Detail shop works on it on Thursday.

Hopefully the key is back in my hands by Friday.

I'm getting an Ace Steering wheel made and I shipped them the yellow kevlar and ultra leather BUT there was another problem there and the material just got to them today. they will be pulling a rabbit out of the hat to the wheel done in time.


I'll be leaving for AZ on SUNDAY. I'm VERY excited.

You got that one right. It ALWAYS takes longer than you think. Quality takes time and by the looks of it you are a perfectionist.

Good. A few teething issues. One is that we did not get to detail the car. So now that everything has dried out, there are a lot of white spots from the polishing compound. Not a big deal but will be a little time comsuming to remove. An aggressive rub with a cotton towel removes them. Dad has a spray cleaner that works quicker but will still take a long time to do the whole car. I might go to a detailing shop on Wednesday in vegas and let them go at it.

Car is running great. LOTS of attention. Thumbs up, people taking pictures. The door fobs are finicky. We CAN open the passemger door with one fob but its a challenge. Shameel said we will be using superior unit when I return anyway. I washed the car today so got to find a few clear coat blemishes. Nothing you did not tell me about. There is a little wheel vibration about 50 MPH and I suspect it is wheel balance issue but liveable for now.

LOTS of comments on the lights. They are all positive but of course no one is going to say anything negative to me directly. AAC MIGHT be able to finish the halo light install in Pheonix. I'm hoping they might also install a new black bow tie and I just pay for installation and then swap the faulty one. We will see.

Bottom line....the car looks and feels freakin fabulous when it is in motion....or parked.

Good News.
Of course we will correct all the litthe issues under my warrenty when we see you again.
We still need to have Parm do a tune on the dyno?.. do you agreee?
I told shameal to order the new parts. I will fund it for now so we can get it resolved ASAP... we'll square up later.
If you have a chance , buy the Meguires final inspection spray cleaner. Works awesome on fresh cut surfaces.polishes and cleans all surfaces.
Glad all else is well!

I'm sorry to say, but with all that was going on leading up to the fest, I never saw this thread and your build. The first time I saw your INCREDIBLE Camaro was at the fest. You were flying around the track and I was literally like



WTH WAS THAT!?!?



I watched you run it around a few more times and I finally got a chance to go and see it in the car show area. I had run around the lot a few times and we were missing a bunch of cars I saw earlier that I wanted to get a closer look at....

....then I saw it....



after walking up, I KNEW this was something more than special. One of the first aspects of the car that jumped out at me (besides all of it...lmao) was the rear spoiler and how the back quarters rolled into the spoiler itself. I couldn't figure out how you did the spoiler, what type of spoiler it was, if it came that way, etc. I figured it had to be custom work since the quarters rolled into it. no way anyone is going to sell a spoiler complete like that. But, I looked and knew there was work.

Of course, the carbon fiber popped out at me and I LOVED the wheels. Then there was this hole in the hood with this shiny thing??..lol. Yeah, it became pretty obvious to me this was a special car.

And you want to know one of the funniest things about this whole shindig along with picking your car for my favorite?

I never liked yellow.

HA!

I was never a big fan of the yellow Camaro. Sorry...it never did anything for me. I even ranked it last when I partook in the GM questionaire. But then I saw yours and I was thinking, "why do I like this so much???...it's YELLOW!" But it's freaking SICK!



But it was GORGEOUS! I don't know what it is/was...but that combination of everything you did is pure awesomeness...

I can only imagine the amount of people that want to get a picture of your car everywhere you go and also all the people that continue to stare. You did a fantastic job on picking everything and the others guys here in your build did a fantastic job at putting it all together.

Congratulations on such an awesome build. I only hope that one day I get to play around and have fun like you did with your Camaro!
