    99 BBM z28

    I picked this car up back at the end of summer since I had been wanting a ls1 car for quite some time and ran into a good deal on this one. The first picture is how it looked when I got it home from picking it up.

    Thanks guys.
    Reaper- I'm assuming that you are asking about the hood on the 99, I bought that hood off a local who was unable to complete his front end swap on his lt1.
    Btw are those pictures showing up really small for you guys like they are for me?

    Nice looking rides. Definitely a cool color. My buddy had a similar color on his rebuilt SS but it was a little darker.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was having a terrible time getting them to stay the size I wanted them to be. I finally just have up.

    Thanks! The third gen is my favorite as well. The 99 has been under the knife this winter getting a slight make over.

    UPDATE
    Here's several pictures of my fun that has occured this winter.
    In the midst of pulling the motor back at the end of February. I pulled the motor sooner then planned because someone was interested in the ls1 and I couldn't pass up the offer.

    Rolled out of the garage for the time being while a decision is made for what motor to run.

    Ahhhh the new power plant has arrived

    Removing the motor from the crate so we can get this party started!

    Here's the finished product waiting to be matched to a MVB 4L80e.

    Rewind back to during the motor build, while waiting for parts I took on a couple of projects. I sent my cluster off to HotWhipT/A on tech to have blue LEDs installed while he modded my mileage indicator. I didn't care for the look of the oem needles so I contacted a sponser.

    Here is a daytime shot of the finished cluster; blue backlighting/odometer reading, blue needles, silver TA overlays and a TA bezel.

    LSx decal cluster

    Another part of the car that really irritated me was how bad the aftermarket shifter looked that was installed by the previous owner. Not only was the execution terrible, the shifter sat WAY to high for my liking and really looked out of place.


    So I got online and began my search for a new shifter. I believe that this one looks 10x better, along with the installation was spot on


    Currently the car is still down. The transmission has been at the shop for two months now but on a bright side I should have it back on Wednesday. Hopefully the car will be running shortly following.
