Does anyone else decorate their living room with car parts? My wife says I’m not allowed to add any more but I’ll keep trying.

I think that hanging thing in the first picture could be converted to some pistons with connecting rods attached.

Rally wheel center caps as shades for each light.

Does this count?  Thats the entire new interior (minus the door panels, rear quarter panels and seat foam... still on back order) and new inner fender wells taking up residency in my living room. Boxes started arriving sometime late May/early June and they’ve been slowly accumulating since. Yeah, that’s a now-inaccessible full-size leather sofa behind all of it. Thank God mama puts up with me 😂😂

nice how did you get the white letter tires so white with the bfg 

When they were on the car they were always scrubbed with Fantastic and a brush. I still do that today. Note that some of the newer BFGs have a defect where the letters do not come up white.

I added two more boxes to my pile in the living room as the seat foam finally arrived yesterday.  And, yes... I got the eye roll from the better half. 

Yes dear I'll have them out of here as soon as possible 😉

I shut the door to the big room upstairs to keep the cats out. As soon as the body goes to the shop the parts get all spread out in order of assembly. The cats are not happy about this. I haven’t heard from Karen yet. This probably won’t be good. Lol.

My living room should start filling up in the near future, only problem is a lot of the stuff is held up due to these damned delays. Started ordering parts for the 69 Z/28 last week, but the big ticket items like the ARH headers, & the Tremec TKX 5 speed are 6-8 weeks out. Ordered a new carpet/floor mats last week too & waiting for a quote on the Holley EFI & Ignition parts, Aeromotive fuel tank, etc to get that ordered too. Denny's driveshaft is about 6 weeks behind & I can't get that made until I get the trans.... troubles, troubles, lol.

Nah, as soon as that CTS-V leaves the shop, the Camaro will be on the lift. Still plenty to do before that stuff arrives. 4 wheel disc brakes, new rear axles, wiring harness, etc.

I get it. That was more of a joke about how long backorders are actually taking. I’m still waiting for my paint. Lol. Ordered in March,I think, it’s been so long. Lol. 

It's not funny though is it, lol. I should be in my hot tub....
