I ordered 2 mystery boxes a few nights ago. 18lbs is being delivered today...so i must have gotten some good stuff!


So, ordered my Gen5DIY Fog lights, should be here today as well. Will get thsoe installed. Need to get LED's for them, and decide on headlight/taillight housings.


Camaro is going up for the winter, where i should have a nice spot to work on her, indoors. Plans include, but are not limited to:
Installing the fogs
Headlight/Taillight housings
LED's for all
ACS Splitter and rockers
Possibly changing to 1 piece aluminum drive shaft
Possible...1LE suspension setup. Working on obtaining that now.
And, lastly...full machine polish and protectant with Adams products.

Once that is done, saving for the twin turbo setup!

Started work on my winter projects today
Got my Gen5DIY fogs installed. Wasnt able to test them out though, as I forgot my keys :-/
Very simple install. Took about an hour, and that was because i was dicking around with taking pictures, and looking at stuff under the wheel wells. Oh, and that stupid bumper wiring connector. That took 10 minutes to take apart because I am an idiot.

But, required tools are a torx bit (will update with a size ), 7mm socket/wrench, and a flat head screwdriver. Got to test out my new Milwaukee 1/2" Fuel Electric Ippact....that thing was AWESOME.
Removed the wheels and the wheel well liners. Nice and clean under there!




Can now easily access the ports on the backside of the bumper cover. Everything just snaps into place.


The front side...somehow both of these were full of bugs...?



New foglight housings installed


Much better looking :-)


now working on the 1LE suspension. Got everything loosened up up front. Just need to head back over there with some more tools to finish up the job.

Looks good. I am really anxious to see what you think of the 1LE package.

1LE Package is fully installed, except for the BMR Toe Links. Just need to get those done, and get an alignment, then figure out what the next project for the winter is. Suspension went in very very easily. Was done with front and rear in about 5 hours total.

Not yet. I took collision off of it for the winter as to not tempt myself to drive it, since winters in the midwest suck. I will probably jump in it and run it up and down the street a few times to get the suspension settled, but other than that, nothing till spring time

I gotcha. Will be looking forward to your thoughts once you can carve some corners

Special thanks to member Aequitas & Veritas for the good deal on a new in box Magnaflox 11386 X pipe. Picking it up today and going to get it installed to finish out the exhaust.


Also picked up new rotors and pads and a second set of rear calipers for Lola. My drivers side rear caliper has a bleeder that is possibly stripped or in the process of stripping, so just going to replace them both while the car is on jackstands.

Debating on my last few things for winter...
catless downpipes, or a Ny Trex nitrous system.

Wife put the brakes on me for turbo's until we get into a new house/sell our house :-/
