Thanks Rabbit, I wasnt a fan either but this car just look goprgeous in solid black! Next step is to gloss black powdercoat those exhaust tips.

DD I am looking at a few amatuer events going on in the area this summer. I will post up pics if I pull the trigger.

I finally got the chance to install the UMI subframe connectors I bought in April


Having a drive on hoist makes it easy, put the car on the hoist, put the rear jack on the frame rails and lift the car till the lower control arms are parallel to the ground.


take off the tunnel brace, put the provided threaded bars in the front frame rails, take out the drivers side rear lower control arm bolt, slide the subframe up in the back and reattach the lower control arm

Loosely attach the front subframe bolts, do the same procedure on the passenger side.

Lower the rear jack, snug the rear lower control arm bolts to 92 ft lbs and tighten all the rest
Car feels tighter, cant wait to see how she feels in a corner!

My oldest and best friend is a professional digital photo and videographer and has been wanting to shoot my Trans Am since I bought it last year. Well he had an open window this week and had me drop it off at lunch!
Cant wait to see the results and he plans on keeping the car for a week so he can setup and shoot every possible angle.
I snapped some shots when I dropped it off, notice the size the light box above the car...

OK
Got a few more via email
Need to go by his studio and get some higher resolution downloads
The hood shot is sweet, you can see the "Ram Air" sticker on the hood and the license plate insert in the shadows...

Changed her oil on Sunday, she just hit 3,510 ,miles so I put about 1,800 miles on her this year.

I swapped the wheels back on in preparation for winter storage. My stock wheels are mint and the original Goodyear F1's only have about 1,700 miles on them. I hadn't seen the car with the stock wheels on and lowered, looks pretty good!
