RE: Steelies fitting over Brembos...

I threw my leftover PPV steel wheels on my GXP and it fit fine. The trick is if you can track down a set of GXP pads, you should be ok (you might know that already and if so, I'm merely just restating the obvious; sorry).

We got the lower door trim and V8 badges installed. And some center caps that match the badges for the V6 Camaro wheels:

Really need to get my butt in gear and order the center support from IPF Racing so we can do the G8 console swap.

My car is gross please excuse the mess lol but I finally got around to installing a Camaro center console I got for $150 shipped. The price is great but this is NOT a bolt on affair and while I got it to fit fine be advised you will need to get creative. I also used the Camaro wiring and a USB adapter to make the USB port input from the Camaro console to the Caprice radio work together. All in all I’m happy with it, one day maybe I’ll make a better block off plate for the shifter hole but for now it’s ok. One of the next things I’ll try to do it make that power port in the center console work but it’s not pressing right now.

Nice job on that console. Looks good despite the mashup. Maybe if you know somebody with a 3D printer can make a block off with a sort of cubby or phone holder.

On my Camaro console I dispensed with the silver shifter bezel. I'm making a flat plastic plate to cover the area, Hobby Lobby sells bulk plastic sheeting, I'll do one layer as a template, put about 4 layers in as a cut-to-match to reinforce & complete it, paint the top layer, use the existing holes in the console to put screws in to secure it and call it a day. Mount a gooseneck phone holder or other devices to it if you want, or just leave it blank & flat for a writing surface. (Right now I still have a piece of pizza box top making it look pretty, lol.... yeah I'm lazy!)

I installed a Chevy SS seat into the passenger side of my 2015 today.....

The longest part was waiting the 10 minutes after disconnecting the battery to make sure the airbags don't blow....

Gotta do the wiring tap on the drivers side, then do that too. Just gotta wait for it to go from BROIL to Sauna.....

Love Arizona in the summer time.....And now "MONSOON" time too.....
