    I haven't had any time to work on any of my own stuff lately. I made the time this weekend because I was bound and determined to drive it on Labor day. Saturday night and Sunday night after finishing another customer's dodge, I finally got to it. I reset the camber and caster, removed the 1" lowering blocks in the rear and put in 1/2" ones. Then I swapped in my other tuned ecm from mailordertuner. I also finished installing the LED park/turn lights and led projector head lights. (Too bad the head lights are inop) Monday after taking Colt to an eye doctor I installed seat belts and the big kids and I took it to the in laws. It sure was nice to drive this thing. I took the kids to school in it this morning and ran errands in it before work. I guess I better get on installing the wiper arms and switch. Day 2 of driving it and I got caught in some rain.

    Same with my 40 Charlie. RainX did work well. I may do it anyway to allow the rain to bead off easier.

    RainX is my go to solution on my 48. Even with an electric conversion to the original wiper mechanism, the wipers are pretty much useless above about 30 mph.

    Now on my T bucket, I actually looked just over the windshield like I do on my MC. I learned real quick not to put RainX on it. The rain would just pour over the top of the frame directly into my face! Of course, the car never had a top. It was definitely a motorcycle like experience. Drove that thing 5 hours once in a hard rain. Didn't have much choice as my wife had to be back home to go to work.

    Since the headlights and wipers don't work on the Camaro, just drop it off with me for a year or two and I'll fix it right up for you.

    Here are a couple other pics I took of it. I really need to adjust and fit the hood. It's too wide. I could probably oblong the holes in the fenders to get them out some more but I'd rather trim the hood. Harwood told me they make them a little wide so you can fit them to your car. I was worried I'd cut through the seam or something.

    How much too wide is the hood? I ran across a 'glass hood years ago that was 1/2" too wide, had to slice it along the sides, cut out 1/4" on each side and glass it back together! Hopefully your's isn't that bad and a bit of grinding will fix it.

    There is some irony to that too. My brother in law and sister in law own that. She used to be married to a gear head in the 70s who had some sweet rides. A 67 GTO that was a drag car, a 70 LS6 4 speed Chevelle, and many others. They were checking out the Camaro and I laughed and asked him if he knew what FIAT meant. I found it funny and ironic because his name is Tony. He about died laughing. He never had heard it before.

    I'm hoping that no more than an 1/8" off each side will have to go. I pulled out the fenders as far as they would go in July. I was hoping that a lone would have done it. Haha
