If you should ever get a ding have it professional fixed. Do not attempt fixing yourself unless you are qualified. My son created a couple dings in my passenger fender. I took it to the dent doctor and for $85.00 no more dings

Man, i had a door ding right on the body line of the door.. I was sick... I mean it was right square on it, which was the absolute WORST place for it! Took it to the local shop... Guy worked on it for about 20 minutes and it was GONE! (ok... if you know where to look and you look really hard there is just an ever so tiny imperfection... but even I have to look hard to see it!!!). Was truly amazing!

That is why I say leave it to the professional to take care of. Won't ever know it was there. Glad to hear that yours is gone too.

Today my wife and I joined the SLP (Street Lethal Performance F-body Organization) for a cruise from Mt. Clemons to Port Huron. Fantastic weather sunny and 60 degrees. Good time had by all. Total of 12 F-bodies went for the cruise along the lake and river.

Here are some of the photos from the cruise.

Special Thank - you to the President (Dave) for organizing this Great event.

Came home after having my Camaro lowered and found in the mail the tint kit for the side marker, reverse light, and the front turn lamps.

Thanks Scrming.

Yes, I agree. Should have come this way from the factory.

Here are the links for my tint installs. Seller info is included.

I liked everything you've done up to the point that you lowered it. I think it looks much better at stock height. Keep the pictures coming.

Nice looking car. My favorite picture is the overhead shot while it was running in the rain.

Looks great ! Did it change the ride quality ? Now you need a nice set of custom rims.

Thank - you for the compliments. You may be the only person with this opinion of keeping it stock height. Every person who has done the lowering or seen it done thinks this is the way it should have been released from the factory.

One of my favorites too. That is why I have it as my avatar. It is also a special photo to me since it was my sons first time at this track. He was riding shot gun and taking photos.

Yes it did change a little, stiffened it up. If you didn't compare it to stock you may not have noticed.

As for the rims, TRUST me I am constantly looking at options. Just using up the stock rubber first. Look for new wheels and tires around April 2013.

Seems like a long way off, but this gives me time to sell the expense to my wife and save the money.

Thinking about 275/20's up front and 305 or 315 / 20's for the rear. The Camaro's that I have seen with this much rear tire look AWESOME.
