PQ,

Just had a chance to look over your thread.... Car looks great!! Can't waite to hear the exhuast!!

That's the first mod I made... cut the factory mufflers of with-in the first month or so.

It's great to be able to hear the RPM's... never have to look at the tac... LOL

My 8 year old wants me to install bumblebee yellow stripes next (transformers 1). LOL

It'll look more like a wasp!!

Maybe you had your one uh oh with the wheels.

Speaking of wheels, did they do a special off set? Are they wider than stock? With you new sig pic the even look better, but look wider and deeper. Have you had any problems with them rubbing at all?

Nope. No rubbing problem. Only 'Fitment' issue was the TPMS sensor hitting the brake line.

I swear if you even think about putting rattle can paint on those calipers

I will personally call CPS Camaro Protective Services and have them confiscate your car until you can be rehabilitated...





And you will forever be registered as a cheesy mod offender.

Oh and I will Ban you.....

FYI, I roasted the high temp caliper paint on my Mustang, turned it black. Granted, it was a track car, but if you brake aggressively at all Krylon won't hold up.
