I used to live and work in Jefferson County. Now I am in KC. I originally had two plates on my car until I hit a raccoon on the highway. The fascia had to be replaced and I did not have the front bracket reinstalled.

Nice. Can't hardly beat KC BBQ! Now the real question is, KC, MO or KC, KS? My car had been only a Pennsylvania car until we moved here so no front plate. Moving here I was frantically trying to find a Jacfab plate since Jason has moved onto 6th gen Camaros because I had just had the front fascia redone to remove rock chips when I had my ground effects installed and I hated the idea of drilling into the freshly redone bumper.

There is a KCMO and a KCK. They are separate entities and just have the same name.

Oh I know they're separate entities. Similar to St. Louis and East St. Louis except in KC, either one, you're not as likely to get shot. I was meaning, which were you in? I'm guessing KS since you don't have a front plate.

As promised, a much more interesting update. BMR 1" lowering springs installed. The ride is much more pleasant than a previous brand that was installed with the same ride height. Instructions were pretty straight forward and we had everything done in just a few hours. It's amazing what 1" lower will do for a car.

Not sure why the middle two pictures went sideways, but you get the idea.

The stance looks good. Post some daylight shots so we can really see it.

I misunderstood! I am in MO. I used to have a front plate until a raccoon decided to cross the highway in front of me in the dark. I had to get a new fascia and I told the body shop not to install the front bracket.

How do you make an already good looking car look better? Tint the windows! I went with 3M Color Stable tint with 35% on the doors and 20% in the backseat. I'll post better pictures later, this was what I snapped quick Friday when I got the car back after getting the tint done. It ended up a little darker than I expected, but I wouldn't change a thing!

Thanks. I got lucky that this one was for sale when I got it because it was THE color I really wanted.

As for a camaro club, I've joined gateway camaros. Good group of people and some awesome camaros in the group.

Thanks! Aqua Blue Metallic will always be a hit in my book. I'm just lucky to have it.

Continued the lighting upgrades on the car. Now all I have left on the exterior are the backup lights. I wish I could find a reasonably priced way to replace the factory ones with a nice clean white LED setup. The lights I got today are from Diode Dynamics and were super easy to install. I opted for the dimmest lights they had because well, not that I street race, but there's no reason to give the cops extra visibility of my license plate if I do something stupid that they might want to talk to me over. Attached is a comparison of the two bulbs.
