      Screw you at $6k!!!!!

      Have been looking for one of these for a couple years. All the decent ones in my area are way more than that.

      I actually really like the stance. Its very period correct. If anything, I might change it to those wide swirly-tri-spoke wheels that were super popular on early 90's pickup trucks with a "conversion truck" package.

      Also, love that hood! Mine has a couple of spider webs from what appears to be a fan or belt coming apart from the underside, so it might be worth looking into.

      I did a little work to the interior. I recently purchased a restored climate control head (the PO, while spray painting the dash, didn't bother to tape off the climate control, plus it was broken on the back side) and I moved my gauges to where the radio goes. In lieu of a radio, I've mounted a small amplifier under the passenger seat and wired all of the speakers to that. I then connected a 1/4 to RCA adapter to the input of the amp.

      I will likely plasti-dip the aluminum plate I made black to better match the rest of the interior.


      But I got to thinking. What if I connected a Bluetooth adapter to be my input instead of the cable? Then it would be completely stealthy.

      Something like this:
      http://www.spadepot.com/shop/Bluetoo...FQuLaQodwR0GpA

      And I could wire it to my key-on power and it would be out of sight.

      What do you think?

      That's a nice Camaro, mostly what you see around here are garage queens or rustbuckets.

      Thank you!

      Anybody have any suggestions for adding a stealthy BT setup other than what I suggested above?

      Everything has its place.

      It's far from ideal, but it is superior to carburetion, especially if you're making a corner carver out of it. No more float bowls and it'll look period correct underneath the regular 14" air cleaner of your choice.

      Some newer amps are coming with Bluetooth modules installed if you want to go that route.

      The JBL GTR series has it.

      I figured I'd update the thread a bit. A friend of mine recently blew up his 350 Toyota Land Cruiser, and is looking for an engine. So, instead of pulling mine and looking for a buyer while I'm doing my LS swap, I figured I'd just sell it to him. So, in january, the 350 comes out and I'm currently on the hunt for a wrecked 2500 HD or denali 2wd for its 6.0 and transmission.

      Woohoo!

      Good call on looking for a 2500HD pullout with trans, those 4L80s with an HD2 shift kit will hold up to a lot of power.

      Don't forget my experience! Expand your candidate pool by also looking at box vans.



      Oh, and I think you should get a 454. It'll bolt right up to your 350's mounts.
