Honestly I have no idea how my car won that first place trophy as the people that came in second and third had cars with way more in them and were very unique and very nice looking.

@ monchy- haha that looks like a good movie, thank god i grew my hair out, despite how damn hot it is here.
If you decide to frame you need to be sure to find a glass that will not allow light to ruin the ink and paper. They weren't last to forever in light so the ink will eventually fade if not framed correctly

Thats what im thinking... the ink has already faded a tad, so i need to find a nice one. Or i can just laminate the original/ make a copy of it and take the copy to a car show. Then i dont have to worry about it fading.

If you want something like your window sticker to last a very long time you need to keep it either in the right glass or in a semi dark place. I have mine folded in a folder with all my other Camaro papers and have very little fading and has only one little crease line in the center. Which to me isn't bad for 4 years

If it were mine I would make a high quality copy and use that for car shows so if anything happens to the copy its no pain since you still have your original

so laminate the original? Feel like that would be easier on the ink and less hassle.

Yes I did the outer trailing arm bushings too. I highly recommend doing it all at once. Its a major pain to do so just do it once. Definitely get the puller recommended in the diy. Cutting the rubber is the biggest pain.

Haven't gone to the track yet but after some hard launches you can definitely tell a difference. No more hop at all. It also spins a lot less.

Yea I planned on doing it all at once and I bought that puller in the DIY a couple weeks ago . I wouldn't be surprised if I run into a crap ton of problems when I do mine seeing as how my other installs in the past went (headers, rotors &pads, ported tb)
