Sometimes I really hate being a procrastinator. The plates on my Camaro expired at the end of June, and since it was still registered in Illinois I decided I was going to finally get the car registered as Historic in West Virginia. Well guess what, it's not almost October and I still haven't made it to the DMV. So since we had a big car show this past weekend my only solution was to do what I said I never wanted to do....make my car a trailer queen. I guess I'll have to wait and see if I will finally get the car registered before the next round of shows...next spring!
I dropped my truck off at the shop on Tuesday to have tint installed on the driver & passenger windows, and while it was there my new Magnaflow cat back system arrived, so I had them throw that on there as well. At first I was disappointed to find out it was not what I wanted. I had wanted to have dual angle tips coming out on the back sides of the truck, what I got was dual angled tips coming out on the passenger side in front of the rear tire. The wife and I drove back over there and they held the exhaust up under the truck to show me what it would look like. After getting a visual look at the tips, I'm very glad that I didn't get the exhaust that I wanted. Now I've got a bad-a$$ looking exhaust, and a very MEAN growl coming from it. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get some pics uploaded of the new additions, and I'll try to get a audio clip as well.
Finally getting a chance to start working on my To Do List. I installed the replacement dash a couple of weeks ago, and now I just walked in from mounting the new 18" wheels onto my beast. Found one problem during the installation. The wheels have a nice looking center cap that snaps into the rim. Well the darn hub pops this cap out on both front wheels. Now I have to come up with a solution to make this look better than just that old rusty hub.
It figures...I finally get the parts I've been waiting for and winter finally arrives. I've new wheels and a new dash pad ready to be installed and it's about 15 degrees outside, and I have no garage. Well...guess I'll have to deal with my wife getting teed off at me for keeping these parts in my office.
