Your car looks GREAT on the Pedders! Congrats!
My intake is missing the fuel line. Remember when I bent it up......?

Got a member in Jacksonville who is gonna give me 100.00 for the springs. I figure it's a fair price for a member.

And pics don't quite do it justice. In pictures it doesn't look much different than it was but in person it's pretty awesome. Bottom line it rides like a quarter slid across a long smooth table.

I'm gonna romp on the car a bit til Monday I think. Not sure who yet. Don't think I need to 'time' the suspension because the only two movement bushings I replaced was both ends of the trailing arms.

Hard to find anyone worth a shit down here though. My dealer wanted 370.00 to align it after the drop springs. Thankfuly it drives perfectly straight right now. I know it is probaby out of tilt but it will be fine till Monday. I pulled them the same when tightening the spindle back up.

Just get off your butt and move to Houston! Bonnie has family here, you could join the H-Town Camaro Club and there are plenty of places to do whatever you want to your car!

Dude you are my hero, awesome job even from team L99. I can not wait till my garage is finished, then I will try and tackled some things like this.

Car has a wicked stance.

379.00 for an alignment. I had mine aligned after the springs and it was 34.00 locally, 4 wheel aligment so good I took my truck to get it done. Same price 34.00
