    As you can probably see in the photo there is a bit of nasty dent over the left tire, it looks like someone backed into the car in a parking lot. Aside from that the body is really straight and the paint is even in nice shape!

    So far I've had a few things to take care of as she is my daily driver.... The transmission pan was leaking, so a quick check revealed a few bolts on the corner of the pan were just a tad loose, so that was an easy fix.

    Next, the right rear wheel was throwing grease/oil all over the wheel, so I did both axles (bearings and seals, I also did the front pinion while I had it up in the air.

    very nice. glad those were easy fixes. It take quite a bit of effort to keep these cars running perfect. I've had my share of crappy parts house parts. I'm almost inclined to buy only OEM. Parts house parts are for people that sell after a year of owning.

    Thanks!

    Yea, parts house parts can be iffy.... Fortunately the Auto Parts Barn I use knows me well from all my projects and they take good care of me... except for the labor part....

    Cool A couple more pics...

    I really like the way the 2012 SS wheels set the car off....





    I decided to do a quick tint job on the windows, it came out decent, i'll probably redo them again in the spring, it had been about 4 years since i did any windows and I was a little out of practice. I also did a quick spray job on the calipers in silver, still trying to decide on what color to do the calipers, probably either stick with silver or go black, the red just doesn't fit the color scheme on the car - Pewter n Black-

    you should try a darker silver. I think they should look different than the wheels

    I didn't have any rubbing until i hit a really big bump yesterday... I heard a tire burp, but I haven't found where yet....

    I bought the car with the wheels on it, I was glad cause the 20" tires aren't cheap!!! I found a receipt for some machine work, but I'm not sure what they did.... I will look into it and report back.....
