    That color looks really good in the sun. Have you tried to buff it out any? I know it is fading in spots but I bet what is on there would look great with a little polish on it.

    I might have to redo the far passenger side screen because the zip ties stop the grille from sitting all the way down but for now im happy with the results.

    In your pic of you holding up your vent. See the to oval shape holes w/a small hole beside them.

    I drilled and put screws in those holes and it stays put & no one can tell. I was lucky enough that i had black headed screws.

    I think that if you look at my post again you might be able to see what i mean.

    Glad you tried it and liked it!! It do make a differance in looks a function!

    Be safe!!

    hey guys,
    thanks masparks,
    i did see the screws and i just might do it. Thanks for the write up. I love how it looks.
    Thanks for the comment RockinZ,
    Ill see what i can do about snapping some pics of the frame rails. I have been under there a few times and havn't seen anything then a light surface rust.

    Hey everyone,
    its been a while since i last updated. Well summer break from school is here and its time to do some work to the camaro. I have decided to fix my oil leak and paint my motor again and the engine bay while im at it. So last night i pulled the car in the garage and started taking it apart. I have the starter, power steering pump, tranny and the motor mounts left. Im getting close. I got a bunch of paints and primers so im ready to rock. Here are some pics from last night and i will keep everyone posted on my progress. Enjoy.
