    That repair work is looking great! I didn't even know you could repair it like that.

    I been good. Thanks for asking. I still log on every now and then to check out the Camaros! I been basically rebuilding a 97 Silverado Z71 as a project. I been getting the urge for another Camaro now. And if I know me, I will have one before too long. Lol.

    Well I got out to get some more work done on the car. Last few days has been rain shower, sun and crazy humid, then rain shower, sun and crazy humid and repeat... I just try to get out in the garage once it cools down some. My front bumper has a few slight sags at the nose to hood area. Right where the mounting screws are at. Ive read this is common but I am working on a way to fix that.

    Another project that has been on my mind is a functional lower grille. A member did his and it turned out awesome. I just wonder what the strength of the bumper is after cutting out the 2 rectangles.

    I snapped a few pictures of some more progress too.

    It wasnt a huge update but its progress. If you have any input on the lower grille idea let me know. Thanks guys!
