You think I'd be nuts to do a 1LE conversion from a ZL1?
 
Its 256am and I just got done watching Taken 2.

I'm sure there is someone that would do a swap with me, front bumper, hood, rear diffuser. Hmmm...the ultimate sleeper, :) Ok, enough for tonight. I'm givin myself a headache! No more, no more!

No, you wouldn't be nuts. You would still have the motor and suspension set-up. It's all up to what look you like more.

I wish I lived closer.

Go back to bed

He11bent 01-20-2013 05:27 AM

Yeah...definitely a wack job.

Blueclyde 01-20-2013 05:31 AM

You would be nuts to do that.

PYROLYSIS 01-20-2013 06:18 AM

Why don't you just buy a 1LE next week and then trade it for a ZL1 the week after that. :)

:sm0:

Its your car.. I would sleep on that some more. It is already an ultimate sleeper. Not everyone knows what a ZL1 is..

KKreme15 01-20-2013 09:41 AM

You'd mess up the engine bay cooling with the 1LE hood

joeybsyc 01-20-2013 09:42 AM

I think that's a killer idea. The wheels are the same, and you could pick up a stock hood and bumper for cheap... I'd just save your original stuff. Would definitely fool a ton of people, and still look cool.

Heck, eventually you're going to HAVE to do that just to keep your ZL1 from looking like every V6 car with a ZL1 bumper and hood scoop. ;)

GunnyG 01-20-2013 09:42 AM

Not liking that idea bro.

shawn18 01-20-2013 09:59 AM

I don't think I would do that myself......Now painting your hood and spoiler flat black.....That might look pretty good.....Photoshop time!

Yeah I don't plan on doin a 1LE conversion, just figured it'd be fun to post. Plus it was late.

I do plan however to get my hood wrapped and paint my spoiler satin black.

Man, I hope you dont do this to ur zl1. The ss facia doesnt have brake cooling ducts and the bafles are not optimized for the zl1 radiator.

:sm0:Thats funny shit!!! But its so true..:cool:

NinoSS 01-20-2013 04:05 PM

I'll take your wheels if you decide to do stock SS wheels for the ultimate sleeper... :D

He does have a point. That's the only issue I have with the Camaro, too many interchangeable parts. You don't see any CTV-S being copied like that, that I'm aware of. Oh well though!

I'd want the 10-spokes, sorry. I'd make it a 1LE on the exterior.

I doubt I'd do it honestly, but the thought did cross my mind. Only thing I'm doing is hood wrap and spoiler.

You can swap your hood with mine and then you can wrap it all you want. :D

If you bought the 1LE splitter, painted my ZL1 spoiler satin black, installed your hood on mine, plus paid for it to be hood wrapped in 3M matte black, 1LE calipers, etc You'd have to pay for all this to be done to mine, fyi.

Then I'd do it. :sm0:

MYDLIFECRISIS 01-21-2013 09:27 PM

I'm going to do the SS to LS conversion...whatcha think?! ;)
