Painted the brake calipers red with Duplicolor ceramic high temp caliper paint. New decals ordered, Chevrolet in silver, Brembo logo in black. Easy but takes time, did 3-4 coats. Looks much better then the worn grey factory color. Another thing to clean and redue sometime in the future I'm sure

Michelin PSSs

Well I splurged for Michelin PSS 285/35/20s and two new 20×10 tsw Nurbs for the front end. All wheels have a 35 offset so I can rotate the tires. With 1.2 degrees of front negative camber and Pedders Supercar coilovers, the front wheels and tires clear everything by a 1/4" or so.
I like the square setup and the tires handle great with the 10"wheels, but I need to stiffen the front sway bar as I have more oversteer now and limits rear coilover settings to less then the front or oversteer comes into play.

Been awhile so thought I would post up the lastest rendition of the Camaro. Camaro names and fron t bowtie gone, 20x10.5 tws Bathurst wheels added. Car mostly used for auto crossing or as garage queen now that I retired.

Pics showing some old and new mods

Thought I would put up some old pics of mods done over the past few years. Painted rear light bezels, Forgestar 20x10.5s with MPSS 295/35/20 tires for the street, Bridgestone RE 71 305/30/19 tires for autocross . And most recent new Ridetech coilovers for better ride and handling over the old Pedders Supercars. Other things are custom stage 1 Kali street cam, valvetrain , oil pump, Rotofab Cai, new tune, bmr rear wheel hop package, Magnaflow 3” cat-back, all from JDP Motorsports.

More new parts added since February . First pic is my Fith gen autocross buds at an NMCA autocross event we all do four times a year. I installed DSE adjustable swaybars but no pics though. As they were totally worn out, new Hawk 5.0 brake pads, new stock rear rotors and Morris two pc front rotors. Great setup for street and autocross.Also car pics in race attire
