The story begins here with my first CRT ZL1 Camaro
 
I was finally able to capture one of my dream cars which of course is a '13 ZL1 Camaro. It broke my heart to trade in my beloved Bumblebee but it was time to move on to bigger and better.

Footage I took of when they rolled out my Z from the showroom floor.



List of current mods:

Expertly tuned by JRE
Defenderworx ZL1 shifter - Roto-fab CAI
D3 Engineering water reservoir - Morsoso oil catch can
AAC Afterburner tail lights - Ron Davis heat exchanger - front lighted bow tie
ATI Super Damper w/ 10% OD pulley - Roto-fab WW relocation tank - Roto-fab Big Gulp
Polished black ZL1 emblems - 3D fenders vents - XPel paint protection - VMAX throttle body


So here's my stock ZL1. I plan on doing some mods but they will be mainly in the cosmetic department. I want to keep the factory warranty as long as possible.

Installation of my Defenderworx shifter. (the factory one was too boring for my tastes.)

Some before and after shots of gill stickers. (They turned out pretty good.)

XPel clear shield protection added 4/6/13. Here's the areas of protection:

Complete front bumper
Headlights and DRLs
Side mirrors
Entire CF section of hood
Both side rocker panel areas including behind rear tires
Both rear quarter gill areas that are very prone to damage

Here's the plotter that's cutting all the many pieces that's used on the car.

I especially wanted to get the ECF part of the hood protected.

You got new tires, time for some new pics. I'm interested to see how they look without the closeup shots you took on the other thread.

BEAUTFUL car man! Youre balls are significantly bigger than mine because there is no way I would be able to cut into a fender of a SS, let alone a ZL1. Great job man! Glad to see its not "overdone."

aquablueL99 10-12-2013 07:35 AM

Awesome looking ZL1! Nice choice of color. I also like your personal touches to the car....it is what makes it yours...:first:

Nicely done...:clap:
