    Progress pics on the CME setup

    The first picture shows the valence how I received it. It has been sanded, primered, sanded some more and ready to be pewterized now

    I still have to get the tips repaired and powdercoated, thats the last holdup and their is a good chance the tips will be repaired Friday or over the weekend.

    I am debating on painted the GMMG in a high temp silver or black color, just haven't made up my mind on the matter yet. I am very anxious to get this on Camaro and post installed pics

    It's got all the makings of turning out great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    this is gonna be a sweet mod preston. those are becoming scarce and im happy for you that you snagged one!

    the gmmg is extremely nice sounding! i still cannot believe though that within the community such a fuss is made about that little valance. crazy.

    i dont know, i love your car the way it is man. but this will give it a more streamlined look and have the noise to boot.

    gonna be impatiently waiting for these results....

    how much is the pewter paint by the way...

    ya know, just wondering....

    IIRC, a pint of the pewter metallic paint runs about $30. Its been a while since I bought some so I might be wrong though. It is hard to believe that the valence and tips run so expensive.

    Can't wait to see how it turns out. BTW where did you get the valance? Can you order one online or did it come off a previous Camaro?

    You can't order them anywhere. I bought it from someone who had it. I bought the entire SLP setup(catback, valence, tips), just chose not to use the catback.

    P, its gonna look so sweet!!!

    just a suggestion, have them re-weld the tips. they should sit smooth on the ground, no angled. also, for better reinforcement of the inital single weld, have them do a bar behind that one farther back...

    Get a C5/6

    I have done almost everything I can to this Camaro and what to call it finished VERY soon. Once the CME is on and done, I am gonna get the heads/cam on the car and that will be all she wrote.
