    ^Yeah, they definitely are!! Gonna look pretty good installed, even if they will be hard to see I think (maybe, didn't pay attention if the TAs were visible on Roxie when she was lifted, should be similar visibility I'd think).

    I'll sell them for a fair price to you happily, just have to figure out what that is first.

    FYI to all readers, both new and old, I consolidated the thread down to 4 main posts to clean up the thread a bit. Posts #1, #5, #7 and #9 hold the big update lists now. Knew I should have added some "Future use" posts when I started.

    So, I have arrived back home. Got back on Wednesday but due to restrictions imposed by command I was not allowed to drive my car for 48 hours; essentially equated to not driving until Saturday when I got my Texas Safety Inspection and made the car fully legal. Picked up the new license plates on Friday with the wife. I suppose we should start with promised pics of the old which will be put in the applicable posts (read through the second progress post to see them) and a promised pic of the pile of boxes:


    And now let the build commence. Started out slow with mods as I was just back (did these on Thursday and Friday while my wife was doing schoolwork); installed my JDM Hazard switch, the armrest extension and swapped out shift knobs for one that I won while I was away.


    Swapped out my hood lift struts for the GrimmSpeed Hi-lift setup (very high, can barely reach the hood from the front) and swapped in the billet Aluminum oil cap.



    Installed the ‘04/05 taillights and my new license plates on Saturday and the repainted fender braces on Sunday:

    And installed (passenger side was already finished, pictures sucked worse than this one):

    I still LOL at the statement that the GRs aren't as "toughly" built as the GDs. Considering the GR chassis gained about a 40% increase in bending rigidity and even more torsional rigidity, I can safely say that statement is false. To me, that IS durability.

    Yeah, but which one is more water resistant?

    Not sure, but we can say for sure without a reasonable doubt that this Camaro is most definitely NOT water resistant.

    That's like your opinion man and we've discussed this before, no need to discuss it again as that horse is already quite dead. Rigidity =/= durability, it's more equivalent to resiliency.
