I am doing the zl1 front end conversion and was wondering if i should keep my stock RS grille or put on a heritage grille?

Personally I prefer the stock grill or a phantom ...it fades to black real nice :)

ZL1 grill.

I dont know what to do! I like all 3 grilles but i dont know which would look better. Price does come into play for my winter mod fund.

My car in the first picture. :thumbup:

I would go with the stock RS grille or the ZL1 grille.

I'm not a fan of the Heritage-the grille doesn't seem to go together with the ZL1's bumper grille. It's a retro-looking piece while the rest of the car has a modern look. If you do go with the Heritage, I think it looks best unpainted/natural color. But then you have to decide which badge(s) you want to leave on or off.

I went with the stock grille to save some time and money. I did not want to slap an emblem on the ZL1 grille or have one customized. I haven't seen one that I like yet. The stock grille looks good the way it is and pays homage to the original ZL1 look. Does the ZL1 grille flow any better than the stock grille?

Stock RS grille. The way GM unleashed the ZL1 in the beginning.

I absolutely love your car and the way it looks! Its a beautiful set up and i think i might just do the same with mine. It pays to just use the stock and not spend more money on the heritage. The way your car looks with the stock grille is clean and looks mean with the zl1 front end!

ZL1 Frony Rnd Cost?
 
What's the most inexpensive way to get a ZL- front end without the paint?

Cost?
 
How much did or have you paid for your front-end conversion? I'm trying to save as much $$$ as possible.

Price is really not a concern for me but I went with Gary custom un painted in order to get better match. The going with heritage. Next if not would be the zl1 grill. Don't care for the OEM grill on zl1 for some reason. Looks ok just not as custom looking IMO. I might choose the zl1 after some front lighting mods or badges come out. As stated will be running heritage with badges on mine

I paid around $1300 I think from Gary for un painted and then body shop couple hundred once painted and installed

Denis 05-21-2013 10:12 PM

given the choice, the stock grille. but i like the ZL1 grille

CamaroI 05-21-2013 11:22 PM

Might be due to some of the photos showing the heritage painted same as car. Other grills are black. Mine will be painted black heritage along with front black out panel. Should hopefully be done in about 2 weeks.
