Thanks! That was the main theme I've had in mind for the car since I got it many years ago, lol. I didn't like the black wheels I had on it before though. I think those greys fit it better.

Got the Aluminum grilles I ordered. Supposed to be in satin black, but I would call it more like gloss. They look pretty good otherwise and a lot nicer than I was expecting.

Headliner is finished and the trim is back on. I do have a couple of wrinkles that are seen in the pictures. Hoping I can get those worked out. Now it's ready to go to the alignment shop on Thursday.

Well I got the Camaro to the alignment shop last night and got it on the rack. The alignment guy and I were trying to figure out what was with the high toe out that I had and the inner tie rods and bumpsteer kit were fully threaded in as far as they could go. Got Dave with PTFB on the phone right away and started measuring everything. We determined the sleeves in the bumpsteer kit I received were too long. They were 10" long when the kit was supposed to have 8.5" sleeves. Dave found a couple that were the correct length and is getting them shipped out to me Today. Not a big deal other than having to take the car back home and reschedule with the alignment shop. I at least got to drive the Camaro back and forth across town. Those control arms and brakes with my same master cylinder work great so far (haven't tried any really hard driving or braking yet). Can't wait to get it aligned next week and be able to see what the car can really do.

Got the new bumpsteer kit sleeves installed. They are both 9" in length. I was able to get the wheels straight with about a half inch to and inch of adjustment left in it. I do like that these new ones are powder coated.
