    Finally making progress on my Camaro

    Finally getting some things completed. Got the shell back today so at least I can get the suspension, engine/trans, wiring, etc. done. Here's a few pics, more in my sig.

    What intake is used on that engine, where can I get one, and how much does it cost?

    That's a wicked intake manifold, very nice! What size turbos will you be running?

    I've also never seen a shell that shiny before, I'd be tempted to leave it like that ala joe rogan.

    Looks awesome Jody! Paint looks to be top notch!

    I believe the intake is a custom Hogans set-up?

    That is the factory subframe with the DSE upper and lower a-arms, plus their coil-over kit.

    Thanks everyone, it's much appreciated. That is a Hogans intake set-up that I bought used at a killer price (well, as compared to new!).

    It's Dupont black, a Toyota color I believe with 72400 Dupont clear.

    Unfortunately it's all coming off! I have to strip the car and this time I will paint it myself. The car got painted three times and too much paint in too short of a time is causing some small bubbling which will undoubtably get worse.

    So I bite the bullet, strip the car again, and then shoot it myself this time.

    Un-freakin-believable! This is, by far, the worst part of building cars:

    Outside Labor.

    Guy walks into a deli, asks for a cup of coffee, pays for it, takes a sip and says "Excuse me, this coffee's cold."
    Coffee guy replies: Oh, you wanted your coffee hot? That's extra.

    When hiring outside labor, we may as well get a price quote and then ask (sarcastically): "Now how much extra will it cost to do the job right?" Or better yet, why not just fill the check out for some arbitrary dollar amount instead of the quoted price. "Oh, you want to be paid in full? Why didn't you say so. No problem--just do the job right."

    I admire your patience and perseverence Jody. D.I.Y.

    paint

    3 times wtf?? what were they rushing?? missing dings here and there?? sounds like solvent bubbles, from rushing not allowing stuff to flash dry before topcoating, are the problems everywhere??
    man nothing like buying nos sheetmetal, then before car is driven having 3 coats of base/clear and some primer on, the 2nd or 3rd time repainting, should of given ya a clue to yank it quick, just asking for problems, i can see maybe a burn thru while buffing, but with black he could of panel painted it to fix problem.
    wonder why he did not see problems on final buffing??
    goodluck
