Thanks. I plan to keep it going each time I mod the car.

Installed the Z26 pads and rotors. I don't track the car so these should do fine as a daily driver. Also went ahead and painted the calipers yellow-goldish.



Personally, I think it adds a nice touch and isn't overbearing at all.

Love what you've done here and definitely appreciate the DIY approach. It's a lot like what I have planned for my own DD.

It's a fun car to drive. I figure since I spend an hour to an hour and a half driving each day, might as well make it how I want it.

Wanted a sleeker look, so swapped the gold tow hook for a black one. Got rid of the yellow MontereyCountyCamaros.com stickers and replaced with matte black Instagram ones. Added blue LED footwell lighting thanks to BigWormGraphixs. Easy install.

Everything gives the car a completely different look.

Boredom is getting the best of me. Wrapped the mirror covers in some carbon fiber wrap I had laying around.

Someone asked me how easy it was to install the BigWormGraphix's LED interior lighting.

It was a fairly straight forward install. It took me about 15 minutes. BigWormGraphix provides everything needed for the install.

First, you use their t-clamps to connect to the wire clusters underneath the steering wheel. If you look underneath the steering wheel, between the footrest and the brake and look up, you'll see the wire clusters I'm referencing.

The install is easiest if you disconnect the clusters which is done by pressing your thumb against the tab and pull down. It also makes it easier if you remove some of the tape around the wires to expose more of the wire being clamped, allowing it to bow out a bit more.

Once the clamps are on, feed the longer wire cord through the center console. The gap is found right where the carpet dips down. I would say its maybe three inches where the kneepad ends. Just push it straight forward and pull out the other side.

At this point, plug in the wires to the clamps. They should turn on as long as the dome light is on. If the dome light is off, open and close the door or turn the knob to turn the dome light on.

To mount, find a solid plastic piece in front of the foot/leg ac vents. You'll want to mount to a solid piece, not one that has the grooved feel where you think these would go. Once you know where you want to mount, clean with alcohol, apply the adhesion promotor and peel the tape on the back of the lights and stick.

I used only one of the zipties provided, and used that to connect the wire to the wire you'll feel it you stick your finger near the gap where you fed the wire through. I can say it wasn't needed but used it just to give me a piece of mind.

It's the ZL1 Style gloss black splitter. You can order them from a variety of places, but I found Ebay is the cheapest for about $140.



People can say what they want, but I have had no issues with mine for over a year and it contours the front end just fine. I used Goop instead of the VHB tape.



I got my car for next to nothing (sales associated wrote down a number beginning with a 1 instead of a 2 by mistake; this was also my third car in the last three months and got a discount from that too), so I don't feel the need to spend big $$$ to have my car looking how I want since I didn't pay big $$$ for it.
