    Thanks Charlton. I put up some fresh pics tomorrow. I ended up redoing around the light with some wire screen in the kit to enhance the hold. Urethane doen't bond the greatest to rubber.

    I also went to the testntune with Promods running. The were running from 3.91 to low 4's in the 1/8th. Hauling a$$. After we got to run about an hour. It was 55 degrees out and about 75 humidity. Since the track was sticking so well I got my fastest 1/8 mile yet at 8.573 going 79.3. I had a 1.827 60 ft also. I ran against a 67 Chevelle with a big block and slicks he ran 6.948 at 100.9. Good time tonight I enjoyed myself I got about 8 runs in in total from the 8.5 to 9.1. Drag racing takes some tree skills definitely.

    Here is a picture from Monday. I drove it to work and on the way home I got stuck in traffic jam idling for at least 30 minutes on the interstate. There is no doubt that I have a 190 thermostat.
    btw..I planon going to Montgomery Motorsports park this Friday for the Southern Outlaw series. It is also Test and tune so the track should have a lot of grip. Come on out.

    Thanks Matt.

    Vernon I did it about 6 months ago and I've left it in the Alabama sun a few times and it still looks good. I need to get back to it with putty smoothing it out and primer etc. I bought it from Harbor Freight I think around $17. It took me a couple tries. I finally had to melt a screen mesh that was supplied in the kit to get it as firm is I'd like it. I need to get back on my car. I've been sidetracked by my kids project civic.

    Man it has been a while since I've done anything on my Camaro. About a year ago I bought a front spoiler from a member. I finally got motivated to get it on.

    Now I'm going to pull it back off and give a little spray job and then mount it permanent.

    Looking at this post I can now see how I've neglected the old girl. 2013? Explains the expired tabs. I got new plates and fired it up last night. Dand holley bowl screws are leaking so I couldn't drive it today. I will be in it tomorrow.

    Great car, looks like you've been at it a while. Hope you got the carb fixed and interested to see pics of the bumper cover repair. I've got a similar scoop to install, we will see how mine goes. I bet that was a ton of fun out there on test n tune nights, I live 10 miles from Moroso and hope to get mine on the track too! Thanks for sharing and get the car out spend some time with it, it misses you. :)
