It'll look a little different when we get the underside of the hood cleaned up and covered in the heat reflective coating. Always something to do...

Are you gonna do the paint before you pick it up?

Yeah, I was in around 4:20 - 4:30 this morning. Lots going on. Someday soon I can talk about it - maybe...

Originally it was going to be painted out there to make it pretty since some magazines want to shoot it but I really want to get it back home. There is access to a couple of world class painters nearby so will be talking to them again. They did an incredible job on the Firebird.

Sorry it took you so long. Had put in the links to (hopefully) save some browse time.


Well - here's the latest update: Absolutely everything is ready to go but... something is afoul in valve body of the transmission. Yep - Murphy's Law has attacked the SST Camaro again. The reason why this sucks is that they were going to be road tuning it NOW as in this week. So...have a call in to Bowler, but they are closed on Fridays.. Hopefully they can resolve it over the phone first thing Monday.

So today's lesson: Don't make computers that are from different neighborhoods play with each other. They have a tendency to fight back if threatened...

Yeah, the main guy who did the 3-part candy was there. The "custom" guy was gonna go, but he was slammed with work. Big surprise.

Comes with the territory. We have pushed the envelope a little on some things in this build. BUT - this is the last item on the hit list.

Never a dull moment .
Solving these type of problems are routine challenges in a build of this magnitude. With your vast experience building far out stuff I'm sure nothing is unexpected .
You'll figure it out and the only thing anyone is going to see it tail lights getting smaller.
Go get 'em !
