Default Another from Texas...

Hey everyone, I have been visiting this site daily for about the last 3 months and a finally got an ls1 so i figured now would be a good time to join. Last night I bought a Black 2000 Camaro SS. It has chrome ZR1 wheels with SS center caps, Bilstein Ultra Performance suspension system with the 1LE, Zexel Torsen differential, and a SLP catback exhaust and lid. A 60 year old man that worked at GM bought it brand new and kept in perfect condition. He also has a 2002 SS, a 2004 Z06, and a boat, so he just had to get rid of one of his toys. The only problem is it won't get here until wednesday and that happens to be the day I go out of town, so I won't get her till sunday!
This is going to be the longest week of my life.

i got the polished aluminum. and dont fret about the shipping being high, youre still getting the grille for about half what you would pay for other brands.

Well, would the stainless steel be a better buy?? Or is the aluminum just fine, as far as quality and how long it would last?? Cuz its only like $20 more.
