    The bird on the front and the Trans-Am badges on the doors were done with aluminum repair tape and a razor blade. Similar to the pic below. If you want silver this is the way to go!

    Thanks! I like erect nipples! The gears get to be nice and close with the sifter. I'll have to look again, but I think I've clocked a .05 second 1, 2 gear shift with it on my G-tech.

    Thanks!

    Yes it's the Pro 5.0 LSS combo. I'm liking it so far. I was thinking of trying a little taller stick though. The LSS is almost a little to short, but not. Yeah, I'm confused.

    Brakes are my next project. Going for the C5 front brake conversion. I'm thinking the power slot rotors and no cross drilling though. Seeing it's a DD I'm worried about the cracking. I was thinking of doing either red or black for the calipers. Still need to decide on it.

    The Z06 is the same as the regular C5's calipers other than red paint. The Z06 pads are supposed to be a pain in the ass too and not work to great either. It's just brackets for the calipers that you need to cut off a little chunk of the spindle to clear and they bolt on like normal brakes. Cost it the main thing that really depends on the rotor choice. Seeing I'm doing rear brakes too I'm thinking at least 1500. I'm not done with the research yet so I don't have a good price.
