Thank - you, more photos to come soon. Yes, that is the look I was after, next up, time to start moding my mods. Maybe a new rear spoiler by spring time.

Update on winter mods list.

Rear spoiler is here. Bought a used carbon fiber Anvil spoiler that will need to be painted black. (I have a friend in our club lined up to take care of that for me.)

RK Sport rear valence pieces, that are now ordered and en route. These too will be painted black.

Doing my research now for rotors and pads. Looking for Black Friday deals on something. Right now leaning towards R1 premium slotted and cross drilled rotors and Hawks ceramic (yellow) pads.

Under the hood I have my shock tower caps out for some machine work from a friend in our club. He is adding our club logo to the tops of the caps. From the work he does these will look really cool under the hood adding that little something that know one else has touch.

I have a line on another interior mod that is being machined now. Once I get this back and can post up some pictures, I will share that with you too. It will certainly look cool and help protect the floor mat from wearing out at my heels.

Couple more winter mods showed up yesterday. My friend from our Detroit 5th Gen Camaro Club, took my strut cover caps and machined our club logo into the top of them.

He also, machined this heel floor plate for me to attach to my Llyod floor mat.

This is how the heel plate protector will look on the mat. It is not fastened yet.

T-nuts and bolts. The t-nut bites into the back of the carpet.

This is what a T-nut looks like in case you were not sure. This is one for a snowmobile to hold studs to the track.

Nice car! I was looking for a splitter on Ebay and said whoooaaaa...I've seen this pic before....took me awhile to remember which members build I saw it on. Well your car is now being seen by millions....or maybe you knew this....if you gave the seller permission.

Thanks for the compliment. NOPE no permission from me to use my photo, but with this day and age of everything on the internet is out there, what the heck. At least it gets some exposure. Too bad that isn't even my best photo anymore

105 days of hibernation was long enough. Still not drive time, but last Saturday I started my Camaro up, let it run for a while so I could change the oil. Started adding my over the winter mods. Re-installed my shock tower covers. Added the heel plate to the floor mat and installed. And today I added my new Anvil spoiler.

No you are looking it wrong, but now that you mention it I should have weighed it and compared it to the stock one I replaced. I was thinking more down force for traction at the big end........

Spoiler looks great Mike! Did it bolt right into the factory holes from the RS spoiler?

Yes it did, only issue was when I took the stock spoiler off, it had rubbed the paint somewhat along the edges. I took my touch up paint, put a coat over that area to protect the surface, metal etc. Then opened up the stock holes further as the new spoiler did not drop in cleaning since a couple of the studs were off so ever slightly. By opening the holes I was able to pull the new spoiler a couple mm's further back and let it cover the paint scuff. Nobody will ever know but me, my wife and those who read this.......

Love the spoiler. Gotta ask it that matte black? And if so did you just buy the fiber glass version and have it painted? or is it the CF version? I have really been thinking of getting the Anvil spoiler either in a gloss carbon or a gloss black. Just not sure how it would look with my matte black stripes.
