    I know this thread has slowed down lately, but I figured I'd ask a question anyway.
    In the beginning of the thread you were going to use the carputer for the lighting and such. How would you manage something like that? I have a 2000 SS and am looking to put a carputer in it, remove my back seat, etc, and would love for the carputer to control my lights.

    Great car BTW! Just needs a LS1.

    Thanks, I was going to use a fusion brain. I put one in a friends car then skinned/ enbedded it into his roadrunner. It is cheap and very easy to use.

    I hope to put a LS1 in it as soon as I find a wrecked one, since I now have another daily.

    bump!

    Hey Drew the car looks great. I've read through every single page of the build thread and I've been speechless throughout the entire thing. Very nice job on everything.

    Just wondering, where at in Iowa are you from? I'm over in the Cedar Rapids area. I got a chuckle when I saw the corn in the background of the pics haha.

    Thanks, it has been a long time since I've been here. I'm glad you liked it. I'm North of Ames.

    I finally got the Camaro back out of storage. I'm itching to change up everything a little bit and actually have a finished product this summer. I might try to get the air ride going on the car this summer too since I have 2 Viair 480's, air tank, 4 1/2" Danz Valves, 1/2" airline, fittings, and RE7 bags so we'll see.

    It's funny you mention air bags because I just installed some in the back of my TA a couple days ago. I would recommend selling the RE7's and get a pair of Firestone 9000 sleeve bags for the rear. I got a used pair for $70 shipped on ebay. All you have to do is cut out an upper bracket from some steel plate, add some bends and bolt it into place. For the bottom, you just need to make sure the base is flat. The bag size is just right for a full range of motion.

    Up front you need some Universal Air Aero Sport bags. I got a used pair for $160 shipped on eBay. They slip right over the front shocks.

    The only welding you might need to do is in attaching the front lower plate to a metal sleeve to extend it up. You can take the pieces to a muffler shop for that. So it's not hard at all.

    I'll look into the sleeves.

    I was going to ask you how you liked the aero bags because I remember that you had picked some up and I was waiting to see how they worked for you. I still have all your links saved for making up my fronts along with the extra set of front coilovers I bought so I can use the upper and lower perches on them (I don't have to hack up my stock ones since I want to keep them as a backup if something happens).

    Do you have any new links for your air ride? I try to check in on ls1 as much as I can, I just don't comment to keep your threads clean.

    Dude, that's what the threads are there for. To talk in.

    I'm just now building my front mounts. The final design will depend on what shocks you have. I built mine to fit the Konis and they are pretty unique compared to the stockers. Still, the concept is the same.

    Here's my new thread:

    Only the rear part is complete. The fronts are a work in progress.
