    Inspired by 98Maro, my build thread. 02 Z28 PICS!!

    I fully admit, and give credit to 98Maro for the idea. That being said, here's my build thread for my 2002 Z28 Camaro.

    Stock, when I first bought it back in Sep of last year.


    Added OEM SS spoiler and SLP license plate bracket. LOL on the bracket.


    OEM ZR1 rims with Hankook tires. Also slotted/Cross Drilled Rotors and Hawk Pads.


    SLP Lid, K&N Filter, SLP smooth bellows, UMI strut tower brace.


    Some more stuff....


    Back window tinted.


    Auto Meter oil pressure guage.


    3:73 Gear Set


    VFN four inch cowl hood.


    SS Emblems


    What it looks like so far......


    Not to mention all the maintenance and other misc stuff....
    Mobil 1 10W40
    Iridium Plugs W/ MSD wires
    New belts and pulleys (The pulleys were squeakers.)
    New Fuel filter
    New trans fluid and filter
    Pictured: new tires and brakes
    New battery
    New 3:73's and diff fluid
    Some suspension stuff that can't be seen: UMI subframes, UMI lower control arms, UMI panhard bar.
    SLP Loudmouth

    I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff....
    BTW, I would love to have dived right into a stall and cam set up, but I'm trying to do all the other little things first.

    Anyway hope you guys enjoy the pics!

    Definitely planning on getting the hood painted. I've got two guys I use for my paint work, but both are really busy now. I hope to have it painted by mid July. It does block a little bit of the view, but it looks really cool from inside the car! LoL!!

    I had my SS emblems put on today, here's a quick cell phone pic. I admit, I had a local detail shop put them on for me as I was afraid of screwing up the spacing. I think it came out pretty decent, they charged me $10.00.

    Ya know, I've been told that...The Loudmouth was the one thing on the car when I bought it. Maybe I should change the exhaust tips.

    It looks like it will hit the wind shield but it doesn't. Close, but plenty of room.

    I bought them from a member of another site...He wanted to get rid of the ones I bought for, I think, silver SS emblems. They're OEM BTW.

    I decided to pay some attention to my exhaust tips as they were put on backwards. My only defense is that this was done by the previous owner. Anyway, since they were bolted and not welded on I was able to take them off. Heres a quick pic, the bottom one is all cleaned up while the top one is not. I also decided to flat black the clamps as they were showing their age. What a difference it makes to have them on the right way! I never would have known if you guy's didn't point it out! DOH!
