I probably won't make it as I will have company coming into town, but that would be my biggest concern as well. And yes I am overprotective of my car!

I apologize if I came across like a peckerhead. You came across as kind of a know-it-all and kept arguing with me that they(the body shop) were telling me they were going to do something impossible to do. Like I said, my initial thought was that they'd tape n spray. They told me the steps they were planning to take however, and that's what I relayed to the readers here. You came in and added your 2cents about how it was impossible and that they weren't going to do it that way. Really, the issue is with your tone and coming across as you did. You have knowledge of these cars. OK, so does most everybody else who reads and posts on this site. Some have more knowledge than others. Everybody has their thing. I'm happy to be enlightened on things I have no clue about and often yield to the experts. If you were the guy doing the work on my side gills, I would have been fine with you taping and painting. These guys decided to go a different route and you argued about it being impossible. I pretty much blew off our previous exchange because you're not here and weren't the person doing the work. Really, it was a moot point. They were doing it however they were doing it. You're the one who came in here with attitude, fully expecting that my experience with the body shop would prove you right. If I'm misreading you on this I apologize but, that's what I got from it.

The clear bra thing is a matter of opinion. I have no problem with you expressing your thoughts on that. From a purely economical standpoint when you weigh repainting against cost of a clear bra. It just makes sense to go with the clear bra. Do I think it's a waste of money to spend $1k for it? Yeah, I kinda agree with you there. I'm gonna spend $100 on the gills and $600 on the front bumper. Still more than I want but, I don't want to repaint my bumper or gills every year. They get damaged BADLY. That's my reality. So, clear bra is my solution. No damage on your car so you think clear bra is a waste. Makes sense to me. Awesome for you. More money for mods. That's great.

This back and forth is ridiculous so, I'm putting an end to it. I'm sure you're a nice guy and things just get taken wrong on the internet. No harm, no foul. If you happen to make it to Indy for a meet n greet, you can check out my car and see what they actually did. Either way, we'll have a beer and a laugh and all will be good. Good day to you

It's one big section, a pillar, b pillar, door jamb, quarter panel and trunk jamb all welded in place prior to painting.

Can it be removed, sure. Would anyone do it to make a minor paint repair. No because it would have needed cut out and welded or glued back in THEN painted. Trust me, I'm not trying to be smug or "troll" I'm trying to tell you either you are mistaken or your bodyshop isn't up front with you. Either way, whatever it's your car. They probably removed the windows to paint it properly. I'd love to see your car and see what they actually did.

As far as the bra, yea $100 to protect the gills is a good deal. I was more talking the folks who spend over $1000. It's their car as I stated and if they have the money, fine. I'm allowed to express my opinion that I FEEL it's a waste.

Sorry man, I've been remiss in not responding to you sooner.

I spoke to Dan on the phone and the prices I quoted were the ones he game me. I did mention that I was associated with Camaro5 and was referred to him through here. I also mentioned that I'd be spreading the word about him as well.

I'm sure you can work something out with him. He sounded like a pretty reasonable guy.

good luck

I asked for several different estimates including the bumper only, mirrors and the side gills. this is what he had to say:


The Camero clearbra kit is available in three packages…

Package A - Hood, Fenders, Mirrors, and Bumper - $695.00

Package B - Bumper only - $395.00

Package C - Hood, Fenders, Mirrors only - $495.00



Additional pieces for the grill area in front of the rear tires must be hand cut as there currently is no pattern available to us at this time. The cost for these additional pieces is $ 75 each.



Hope this helps. Thank you for your interest in our services.



Cordially,


Daniel Harris - owner

DT Services Window Tinting




Now I wonder why your Gill application is going to cost me $50 more than what you were quoted? I've heard a wide range of prices on these applications and I still say a lot of these vendors tend to take advantage of owners. Not saying this is the case but consistency would help, especially when you think we have clubs and forums where we help one another and make referrals and suggestions to each other. I'm not one to call and ask why but I am one to keep my coin in my pocket and keep shopping around. Obviously something in the milk ain't white on the quote. I near their facility all the time when I visit my buddy who has a auto shop on Gradle Dr; in fact, just there last week. This is something I could do but not with doubts or a variety of prices being quoted from one member to the next for the same application. Hope it works out for ya Darth Martel]

Eh, I could probably get there in a little over an hour. I live in Georgetown. You familiar with that? It's about 10 miles north west of Ripley.

Ive never been to IMAX so i think this movie fits just fine to be the first movie i ever see in imax, possibily seeing it in 3D? Im not to sure where an imax is but there has to be one that is centraly local around indy that we can all meet at.
Anyone interested just post of possible dates and locations that would be good to go, preferably opening day? which is the 29th according to the commercials but on wikipedia i have even seen the 28th?
depending on my extremely busy work schedule, I will have to see what day you guys pick to go. I won't be able to contribute to the camaro rally though

It looks like there isn't too much hipe plus the fear of the group of cars and I can totally understand that. I got my car out for the camaro/corvette event at the speedway and it hasn't been out since. And before that I couldn't even tell you when its been out. Plus buddies of mine wont be off til the weekend even though I really want to do opening night. But I feel a lot of people will do the same thing and think opening will be crazy and wait too.

Just a reminder on upcoming shows this weekend. Saturday is the National Guard show downtown which was mentioned a few pages back http://www.ngai.net/wp-content/uploa...-fillable1.pdf. Anybody meeting up and driving in together?

- Sunday is the Danville American Legion show (register 8-12, awards @ 3)
- Monday is the Ray Skillman Southside show (register 8-12, awards @ 2)

Copies of the flyers are on Indiana 5th Gen's FaceBook page: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...50276761712515

I'm glad we started this group. Over a thousand posts and nearing 25000 views in one year. Pretty good.

Thanks Indy Pace for the update.

Any other events going on this weekend? I am sure there is several.

It's not in Indiana, but the Camaro Superfest is this weekend in Michigan. I'm going to drive up for it.

Added to the Michigan watch list.

I notice the CICC events are coming to an end on my list. I assume there is more. I'll check their website.

last of the chrome is gone... final piece of the puzzle was the bowtie on the trunk. It was replaced with one with flat black trim and CGM center.
