Thanks for sharing exoticse as always, a bit of correction Madcurly's taillights are 2015 (not the newest Camaro) two versions in 2015



The newest 2016 as shown they have some flavour of the C7 tail lights



I'm taking this weekend off hiking, we'll be back

Last post before taking a hike...

Made a stand (from old IKEA desk) for the wing diffuser to sit on makes it easy to slip the unit on and off without breaking vertical fins







Next, finish the exhaust tip and then the wing diffuser.

Thanks Fie Ro for your nice comments, as you can see I'm having fun with life...

Wednesday made a round trip with top down to Hope, Princeton, Penticton, Kelowna, Vernon, Kamloops, Lillooet, Whistler and back home
Pic shot at Kamloops Lake lookout point.



Something came today...



Hey Fie Ro, we are both smiling today a little update...

Thanks zmcdonal they are the best ones so far ( she had many )

This afternoon started the exhaust tip box, I was going to farm it out to a professional (Dr,Fiero) but decided to do it myself

So here we go...
Cut out top and bottom tip box



Welding baffles...





Crazy angled baffles to cover up round exhaust and to look insane welds are in the back side (you don't want to see them )







That's as far I got today, just end panels left to do to cap tip box ends



That was lots of fun playing with metal

Carlo exiting times

If you go with the tail light flipped in this position it will flow with the lines of the defuser.

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

If you go with the tail light flipped in this position it will flow with the lines of the trunk lid.

I vote for the TOP one...follow the lines of the defuser!

I'd vote for the lights flipped as you had them originally. IMHO, they flow better with the body lines.

As to the rest of it, of course it's your vision, but methinks what with all the vertical and angled planes it's getting confused and crowded back there. Remember, less is more.

Hi - the lights can only go one way - pic 2 - the original way - most of the lines fit great and you can adjust the fin angles on the rear to suit the light segment angles - job jobbed.
I don't think its looking too busy either - from the side you have built meaningful depth and form and from the straight rear I think its looking great. Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing.

^This^ You may know that already or I will fly to Vancouver with a suitcase full of garlic

One serious suggestion, you could put in some lightbulbs and run 12V to them, do a walkaround the car and see what the shape AND lights do compared to the bodylines from all angles.

At twilight would be good

Nice angles Car-Lo;

One thought might be to put a solid piece of fiberglass or board of some kind in between the rear lights to help remove the internal workings of the rear clip. Not sure what you plan on back there as a final but to get a good idea of how everything works for fins and lights, put that inner panel in there to remove some of the alternate angles of the rear clip panel mounts to get a really good feel.... Back to that old saying of make it all one backdrop colour/surface to get a good feel toward a finished product.

Keep up the brilliant work.

Thanks for the tip Fie Ro it's too late for the garlic

Lightbulbs are already in, just waiting for front and rear harness with connectors from GM, then it would be easier to wire it up to the lights.

You may know this already, but thought I'd mention it. All lights/lenses are designed to be in one position for correct light distribution. For that reason alone I'd stay pretty darn close to what factory position of those lamps was. Headlamps are a little more forgiving because they can be aimed/adjusted. Tail lights are more sensitive to position as the adjustment is purely mounting the assembly. Many hours go into designing and testing of the lamps to me Federal Requirements for optics/light distribution.

Very interesting thread, do you have a target date you hope to complete by ?

You may know this already, but thought I'd mention it. All lights/lenses are designed to be in one position for correct light distribution. For that reason alone I'd stay pretty darn close to what factory position of those lamps was. Headlamps are a little more forgiving because they can be aimed/adjusted. Tail lights are more sensitive to position as the adjustment is purely mounting the assembly. Many hours go into designing and testing of the lamps to me Federal Requirements for optics/light distribution.

Very interesting thread, do you have a target date you hope to complete by ?



Thank you so much for your tips as for TARGET DATE she had so many I may not live that long
