    Spring revival

    I'm curious what things I should do when spring time comes around what I should do after my SS has sat for 6 months? I think I did a good job preping it for winter but just so nothing doesn't break or have any troubles what should I do for first time driving after winter.

    Make love to it.





    Check fluids? Tire pressure? etc....?

    Those are just geusses as I DON'T abandon my car for the winter months. We are together through thick and thin. Rain and shine. Snow and sleet. We brave the elements together.

    Agreed with Boomer... take it out for a nice sea food dinner first, and then home for "desert"

    I do an oil change every year in the spring time and check my tire pressures and fluid levels. Make sure there were no puddles in the garage where it layed dormant for all those months, and then, just drive it!

    Oh.... and clean the piss out of it!

    I wish it sat in a garage for the winter.I covered it pretty well outside. I guess just changing the oil and checking fluids is really the only thing you can do. I'll let it run for awhile before i move it then go out for a nice meal maybe to BK. Can't wait to get up to the track again when nice weather gets here. Winter SUCKS!!!

    I did the same thing...covered it fairly well and started it up at least once every few weeks. Today I changed the oil, swapped tranny mounts (hated the poly one), checked fluids, put insurance back on and took it out for a drive. Tomorrow I'm gonna wash and wax, and go for a cruise.

    What track do you normally go to? I see you're in Connecticut as well. We should get all the local CT people together and head to Lebanon this summer or something

    where in ct you from? I live in marlborough which is off of rt 2. Yeah its lebanon I go to with a acouple of buddies. Ones got a lt1 Firebird, 2000 SS with head work and a cam, and the others got a pretty much stock 4.6 stang.....slow pos but whatever. I got plans to do a cam and some valvetrain work before the summer starts so i wanna get up there as soon as I can. Nice choice on color for your SS too by the way. Def get some cars together and cruise around for sure. Let me know of anything this summer cause ill be interested. You got any more pics of your SS too.

    Just got it back on today, washed and waxed it up. I'm about to go take a ride and get some dinner....hopefully I don't go through any puddles ha. Only mods so far are a SLP lid, Magnaflow catback, and Lakewood LCA's. I don't have any major plans for it, maybe an LS7 clutch in a few months, but that's it for now.

    SICK SS man, that's got an awesome stance to it. I bet it looks even more killer in person

    What are Lakewood LCA's. Prolly not taking mine out till april or so. Tryin to keep the miles down and have a second car for my daily driver. I put a Textralia clutch in mile and I love it. Granted it was a pretty good chunk of change but grabs and can handle lots of power plus is very durable. Thanks for the compliments but its always a work in progress. Any appearance mods you looking to do?

    here are the lakewood control arms http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

    I have a DD buick that I'm gonna keep around until mid march in case it snows, and then I'll go full time on the Camaro. I only drive about 5-10K miles a year, so I'm not too worried.

    I've been looking at wheels to get, but I'm indecisive. I've also been thinking about trying a black vinyl scoop insert, and possibly a black berger panel (which btw looks amazing on your car)

    Ohh it suspension.....gottcha If you want different wheels I could sell you my SS wheels with tires pretty good condition but not sure if you anted to go aftermarket. I had a scoop insert on my car last year but took it off cause I preferred the look of just a plain hood. If you wanna do something with your hood a manta decal or painted on looks pretty good.

    ya the stock 10 spoke..Perfect condition with really good tread on the tires if your interested. Here's a few pics. I've seen these powder coated black that look sick so something to think about if you like them.

    just chopped of my stock muffler and put up a hooker aero chamber muffler and to dress it up I found a set of tips. Those are old pics and since I changed to a set of clone corsa tips. I have an exhaust cutout on there as well. I'm putting on a set of pacesetter headers with a catted y next month.

    I gotcha, I just bought the Magnaflow catback and thought that might have been the look. I just want the snow and rain to quit so I can get working on the install here.
