    Here are some bad pics of my maf placement. The 90* silicone elbow is just for mock up. I have 4" steel ones I will finish the pipe with. I also got some coil covers that I'm going to run. I was going to buy some aluminum BBC valve covers and modify them but the cost for the look just wasn't something I want to get into currently.

    I also got a 2011 camaro console I'm going with instead of the 73 up one I had. I like the placement of the cup holders, and it has an accessory power port too. I doubt I keep the gauges in it but we'll see.

    I also got some flowmaster 2.5" tail pipes to see if I can make them work with my exhaust.

    I can't get any of my painting buddies to either lay out stripes on my car, or even to paint them on..... With that being said, I purchased a stencil kit and I'll do it myself. Who knows when that will be. I'm swamped with side work and now we're getting another round of white crap with ice mixed in between rounds. We just got through another pre 0* party too. Is spring here yet?

    Good progress. And I agree with you on the console choice. It's coming along!

    Looking good. Apparently, I missed a few updates. Just spent a few minutes catching up.

    I'm new on here 40FordDeluxe, but took the time to read your diesel vette build and was thoroughly impressed with your ability and imagination. I'm following your Camaro build with much interest. It's good to see younger guys playing with cars these days, the future of this hobby is in your hands.

    Thank you sir! I've had some bad thoughts of putting the corvette back to stock in a few years. I just about picked up a 75 donor car a few weeks ago but I am running out of space to hoard future projects.

    It's update time for the Camaro. You guessed it. It still doesn't run, it is still in pieces, but it is coming along. I got my coil covers installed, scuffed and put on some faux engine ID stickers. Have to throw off the know it alls. I started making some LED tail lights. I got all the new suspension put under it. Except now I bought adjustable upper control arms with taller upper ball joints to bring back some of the geometry.

    I couldn't leave the 40's wheels and tires on it and I had one heck of a time deciding on what wheel and tire set up to put on this car. I tried going vintage but wanted near 10" wide in the rear. But all the 10" wide wheels in vintage looking stuff gets pricey quick. Since I do plan to auto cross the car some, I went with that route. 18x8s in the front and 18x9.5s in the rear. These are Ridler 650 wheels. I will be bringing the rear down some to help get the gap down and hide the rubber band looking tire. The rear tire is a 285/35r18. I wanted to go taller but was nervous about fitment. When these are smooth I will go taller.

    I just got done spending a couple more weeks pay checks on the car. I ordered new carpet since I tore mine when I cut the shifter hole. I ordered an American Auto Wire classic update harness for it to get rid of the old wiring and glass fuses. I wasn't happy with the electric fan i had so I got a shroud with dual high volume fans from Custom works performance in California. This car was missing the rocker moldings so i got some of those too. I also got another tilt column since the one I picked up last year was damaged in shipping. I also got a power brake set up for it. I could have lived with the manuals, but I was replacing the MC any way and just decided to play it safe and go power now.

    I sent my ecm out to get flashed and have to get working on it so i can schedule a time to go get it dyno tuned. There is a cruise I want to take it on May 11th. I really have to start working on it.
