So awhile ago, I posted on here asking for help picking a color combination of my corvette. After you guys steered me away from flat black, I went back to the drawing board and settled on a new color. Well the car is painted and after 7 years of waiting, she finally looks as good as she runs. I love the color and I just wanted to thank all of you for talking me out of the flat black paint I think it looks much better this way.
Since this was my first car (and because I was a broke teenager) I decided to go the slightly modified route with this car.
To list the things done to this car would take forever, but I will give a brief list:
-Completely rebuild front and rear suspension
-Completely new steering
-Completely new ac system
-New brake calipers with drilled slotted rotors
-New big block radiator (for that Vegas heat) and flex- fan
-New interior, including custom fitted seats
-New tires and wheels
-New sound system, including speakers and radio
-New paint with body work (custom mix based of the new synergy green Camaro)
Well there are many more things I could list but basically everything is new or rebuild except for the engine and trans. Those were recently replaced or rebuilt before I got the car. Knowing that those are probably my next project on the car, I have a couple questions for all your smart people out there. Being a broke college student, I having a dream of one day putting one of those 6-speed conversion Tremic transmissions with and Ls series engine. I have read that many do a budget version of this and buy this combo from a GTO, but even then it seems a bit a expensive and timely. I have no immediate plans for this but just wondering about your input on the idea or a better suggestion?
