    The Stinger Fiberglass nose fit really well. There are just a few small tabs that needed some trimming. (Not bolted in the photos, just sitting in place)

    Nice! I might have to pick up the fiberglass bumpers when I get my Camaro painted.

    Well today the underside of the Camaro is officially complete and she was able to take a short trip outside the garage for the first time since I started taking her apart over 4 years ago.

    We are deep into the wiring now and then paint.

    Congrats on the milestone. I'm still many months from moving! haha

    And I would think the bigger brakes would be easier to lock up. After all...bigger brakes are for more brake torque.

    Wheels are perfect for that car. Can't wait to see it with paint and windows.
