I"d just do without the HUD and get a normal one. I'm seeing about getting rid of the remote start if it will be cheaper. I love Camaro and Chevrolet in general but I"m not biased in my opinion. GM in many ways pisses me off with this kind of shit.

It's been broken for the last two fests. LOL Kind of hate to see it go. LMAO

Shitty Savini wheels kept me from being able to run my car at FestI and they barely let me run the one race at FestII.

This is a little better, but you'd have to get it done AT Indy...

It would be cutting it close if it didn't work out.

Deductable is higher than that.

I told them that since I gave them 25k over the last 10 years and NEVER a single claim the least they can do is provide me with something like one discounted winshield per certain period. They dont' have that in Bama so I told them to cancel my coverage.

They did everything to keep my business and I had to let them.

I was paying for Me, Bonnie, and James with on all 3 cars with a 1000.00 deductible and costing 2200.00 per 6 months.

I got off the phone with ZERO deductible, All three cars AND added my 15 yo daughter all for 1900.00 per 6 months.

BUT, it doens't help me with THIS windshield because I'd already told them about it.

300.00 less and added a 15 year old girl and dropped the deductible to zero. Ya, makes perfect sense. I'm kicking myself for not bitching a long time ago.

So I can literally say "I just saved a ton of money by ....... STAYING ........ with Geico.'

I had the shop put a brand new windshield in my car. I think the one they took out is still sitting at the glass shop (I can check on it if you'd like). You can have it if you want it. Stop in Columbus before the fest and have them put it in.

I'll try to confirm that they still have the windshield. They should also have the rear window. Not sure what they'd charge to put it in your car though. I'll see what I can find out. It might be Monday because the mechanic working on my car won't be in tomorrow.

Well did the gauges earlier. Drove the car with it open so I could be sure that the speed needle was accurate.

Finally got rid of my electrical tape bushing inserts too.

BUT, I broke a bolt off in the car to the sway bar bracket.

So I'll tap it out tomorrow and finish it. Always something.

Ok folks.

LOTS of typos. But you get the point.

If I had to do it again I could do it in 15 minutes. Really quick and easy.

EDIT: I forgot to put a step for making sure you plug it in before you make the final install.

Well, I can do a DIY on how to get a broke of bolt in the sway bar bracket hole.

Should come out pretty easy with a drill bit and easy out. Guess I don't know my own strength. hahaha

Right.

Sucks I couldn't get on the car hard this morning. But tonight.

(always seems to be 'Tonight') lol

Actually, those 'Redneck Gaskets' I made were the culprit. They flattened out like Paris Hilton in a mens locker room. Too much wiggle room.

Thanks Hank. I do have one little problem with them though. In the daylight you can't really see indicator lights through them.

That was actually a post of mine the spammer grabbed. I still think it's subtle. I need to do something with the grey trim though. NOT orange. It would be WAY too much imo.
