I bought a big box of used parts and there are some things I don't need. All are available for delivery to any TX NASA event or Nationals. Otherwise shipping is on you from 77354 or pick up locally.

Griffin 6-593-gxx radiator in good shape. This guy is about $550 new. Some bent fins and a bit of black overspray on the tanks: SOLD

Hurst shifter for a T56: SOLD

T56 LT1 OEM iron flywheels...I have four of these now! lol $20each

T56 LT1 SLP billet steel flywheels. One is used but in great shape. The other is used and in great shape but has had additional material removed on the webbing between the bolt bosses for lightening. $150each

OEM clutch disk and pressure plate: $80

Spec Stage 3 clutch disk and pressure plate:$180

Spec Stage 3 pressure plate (looks just like the one above): SOLD

M29 T56 This is the very rare 2.97/2.07/1.43/1.00/0.80/0.54 gear set. Not from the big box of parts referenced above, this was in my car for year. All gears work, but should be rebuilt as 5th gives a slight synchro crunch: $900

Now that things are starting to settle down here in our new home, we broke ground on the GarageMahal.

Any suggestions/tips from those that know much more than I ever will about electricity and other shop essentials? Keep it simple, essential and wonderland arent the same (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

Specifically I'm looking for advice on # of circuits and size, as well as floor and wall paint/coating/covering options.

Some of you might have noticed I've been really really quiet around here (pretty uncommon for me). I've been stupid busy at work, in Argentina for some two weeks....and starting to plan for a move to Houston. Yep, all the cool kids are moving to Texas these days! (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

To tell you guys the truth, I'm a little disappointed with the quantity of houses I've seen on har.com with 4 or more garage spaces. I've been concentrating on the west Spring, Cypress area since that appears to offer a good balance of high end schools/decent commute into downtown/big house for not too much $. We'll see though, I've only been outside of downtown Houston once and that was to Spring so I'm a little biased since I don't know anything else. Any advice here would be appreciated!

I cant imagine what those poor movers are going to think when they open up the garage and see things like LT1 engine blocks, a hydraulic press, band saw, etc sitting there waiting for them (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) I've already packed the things they wont move: long sticks of metal, chemicals, explosives, ammunition, the race car...normal stuff (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

This car will make a great daily driver or a fabulous platform on which to build your track/race car on. I bought it in March from our very own AndyJ (who did much of the work to get it to where it is today). Too many babies and too much work means I need to jettison some toys so...

95 Camaro T-top car, M6 with ~135k on the clock (almost meaningless, keep reading)

Work done by previous owner:
Transplanted 50k mile Lt1
New Clutch
New fuel pump
New PS Pump
New coolant reservoir
New radiator
New water pump
New AC system front to back
New console
New dashpad
New windshield
New shocks (deCarbons - oh well)
New Eagle F1 DS3's
Newer T-tops --some small scuffs
Upgraded 150mph cluster
various replacement interior trim
power driver seat

Work done by me or Andy since Andy's post on this website:
Texas Speed&Performance dual exhaust (mandrel bent w/Dynomax Bullet mufflers...sounds great!)
New catalytic converter, passed Cal smog with flying colors in March
New air intake tube w/reusable filter (have OE parts)
New ripper shifter (have OE shifter)
salvage yard LS1 uprights, calipers, rotors (CMC legal!!)
New manually adjustable brake bias valve (under the hood)
salvage yard LS1 master cylinder
ABS delete (idiot light always on)
New stainless steel brake lines all around
New brake fluid (ATE Super Blue)
(with the above you have a perfect CMC legal brake package...the brakes feel awesome)
New Alpine head unit, CD, MP3, built in iPod connector for endless tunes
salvage yard starter, works perfect
Royal Purple synthetic oil, courtesy of Wiley Alexander in Texas
New wiper blades

Now the bad...
- The paint is pretty awful. There are scratches all up and down the car, apparently from a dog walking on it. Some will go away with a thorough compound/polish, but know the paint is pretty bad.
- There are 2 or 3 small dents on the quarter panel by the radio antenna
- Split on the passenger side front, about 2-3" long
- Driver side splash guard - by headlight well is broken and not attached by all conectors.
- 2 holes in rear hatch that looks like it had a wing mounted
- Windows work -- but slowly
- Has '97 tailights - pass side is slightly cracked
- Cant get more that 1.1 camber on pass side. There is NO evidence of a wreck, so the most likely culprit is a bent salvage yard sourced upright. This can be fixed either with new upright or by opening up alignment slots

Since Andy uhhh...still has pictures on his site (thanks Andy!!!) I'll shamelessly steal them...

This fabulous example of F-Body goodness is waiting for you in the San Francisco East Bay and can be had for a low low price ($4,500)
