Thanks guys! Jwfirebird, I'm not sure what you are referring to. The seats? If so I do need to modify mine to sit a half inch to an inch lower. I'm also a tall guy too. Otherwise they are great.

This is a direct fit shifter. Not universal.

Updated pictures of both the 80 Camaro and 87 IROC. Been a busy year.

Nice photos, they both look very good.
I had a friend years ago with an 80, and I got to say, I liked the styling and performance a lot.
Real frame cars where you can swap engines & transmissions. I like them.
A little tweak to the ignition curve, a beefy 4 barrel carb, exhaust, and you were on your way!

I haven't been on much in a while, but have been busy working on the 80 Camaro and in the process of upgrading the Riv'* stereo to a networked entertainment receiver so I can use my phone with it. Here is what I have been doing with the 80 Camaro. Installed an aluminum upper and lower grille that I still need to have powder coated in flat black to match the headlight buckets. Installed a new stereo with bluetooth, 15 minute power off delay for the radio and a fade out/delay timer for the dome light. Wanted to add some modern tech to the car. Also changed out the rear speakers and in the process of installing kick panel speakers. No picture of it, but I also changed out my throttle cable assembly with a Lokar one. Here are some pictures.

Another project with the 80 I have been working on is setting it up for a center console parking brake and ditching the foot brake. Would like opinions on that. The red console I am using is just for mock up purposes.
