But me doing a run of them dapends on how much interest. I'll figure out how many each run will be and work up a schedule for batches.


Since I know someone will ask for a gm color matched version. I'll be testing one with some rattle can touch up paint to see how the finish holds up to heat and what not on the resin.

I’d be interested in a black set, depending on how the intake tube plug is designed.

So tomorrow im going to fun a final firewall block off plate prototype run. If all goes well with that i can start on those. Intake plugs will fallow. First set will be black and just say Camaro. Might do one small tweak to the firewall plug to protect it from over tightening of the mounting bolt.



That being said intake plugs are going to be designed for the oem ss/zl1 intake. As those are the only intakes on hand. Had a rotofab but it had the sound tube delete. V6 intake plugs i gotta meet up with someone and get some measurements. The plugs should work with intakes that use the oem sound tube stuff but i have no idea of testing it since i dont have any.




Colors i had on hand are Black and Gray. I can get other colors but it will either cost more since i have to buy the resin or get enough interest in enough to offset the cost of the resin.

Not happy with how one part turned out. So I'll be doing another test tomorrow. Going to change some support around and see if this improves it. Working on an intake plug prototype right now. So delayed a day but getting closer

Haven't did a final trim on the firewall plate so has some tiny nubs from supports. The intake tube plug should be fine just cramming it in and use a clamp to secure but it's threaded for an internal plug to secure it. Haven't cleaned the plugs. Sis some sanding on the top so I can do some thermal test and needed a lapped surface so that's what all the white dust is on the threads. I'll changed the plug design around a little bit. It will be a single peice I just made it a 2 peice to do some pull test on. And see how strong the mounting flange is.



Projected finish date should be on track for Friday. Possibly sooner depending on how some test go tomorrow.
