Very worthwhile weekend spent upgrading the brakes on the ZL1. First off the 1LE convinced us he needed to have red calipers so those had to be painted. Originally they were labeled with ZL1 and Brembo, we are replacing that with Chevrolet and Brembo labeling shortly. Next the rotors had to be improved. So we picked up some slotted rotors from Racing Brake. Finally the stock pads produced WAY too much dirt and made cleaning the wheels a nightmare so those were replaced with Hawk ceramic pads. Now Z is stylin', love the final look!!!
So after towing the trailer for the first time this year in the new truck it became all the more apparent that we HAD to get the tow mirrors put on ASAP!! So we spent a few hours last night swapping out the fancy mirrors the truck came with for the trusty, giant tow mirrors that will make towing much better!! A few more things for the new trailer and we are ready to roll this season!!
Had to do some minor work to the 2000 SS this weekend. Pulling in and out of garage moving things around we noticed a slight coolant leak. So replaced the most likely hose culprit today and seems to have solved the problem. Very excited for our first trip out and about in the convertible this year!!
With the addition of the Zl1 to the stables the old trailer just wasn't going to cut it anymore for a variety of reasons. So today we upgraded to a new one with a little more width, a little more height, a bigger side door and most importantly a higher weight capacity!! Now we are good to haul any car we want without worry. Looking forward to travel shows this year with the new truck AND trailer together!
Now just to mod the trailer ;-)
This is literally my favorite day of the year...Camaro wake up day. It is always so hard to see them tucked in, under cover all winter long. I start begging for wake up day usually some time in March and Andy caves in April if I'm lucky! As we lift each cover and unveil each car it almost feels like the first time I've seen them. The pure white, glistening red, mirrored gray and jewel blue a heavenly sight after the drudge of winter dullness. Firing each car back to life is a jump of excitement each time. It just is the most lovely of days....
