Car went in for a makeover two weeks ago...and its DONE!
Finally got the car into the body shop to have the new Rk Sport hood and ZL1 bumper painted. Also having the stripes painted on the car, so the trunk and spoiler are getting some love to. Excited, but I hate not having my car. I'll post some pics next week and the finished product.

Should look bad a$$

Hoping so, been waiting two years to get this hood on the car, and the ZL1 front end was just an extra treat. Not a cheap upgrade but I am looking forward to it, will also make the car very unique from the rest around here.

Congrats man, can't wait to see the results!!!!

Went to check out the car today. They got the hood to fit perfect and have painted a black base coat on for the stripes, said he was going to lay out the masking for the stripes today if he gets to it before it get to hot (todays high is forcast as 106). Hoping they paint the rest Monday or Tueday next week. Took some pics I will post after work, nothing much to see right now but we are getting there.

Here are some pics, grey hood was during the test fit. They painted the hood and trunk black for the stripes first and will apparently paint it yellow over that.

I really, really, that hood. Appears to be functional. What changes are you making under the hood (if any) to take advantage of the intake?

usranger80 05-17-2013 09:08 PM

I have a CAI Inc cold air intake, will probably take the plexi out so the air flows in, also have the adm race scoop as well already installed. I think I will probably get more benefit from the heat extractors than the ram air actually

Cool. The extractors should aid cooling and downforce. I've seen some hoods with working intakes that feed over to the intake area or can use a custom intake for fresh air. Which would work better than the stock pickup location. I couldn't find that hood on their website so I wasn't sure what it offered. Still nice looking either way.

USMCSSGT-RET 05-17-2013 11:11 PM

The intake does direct air right behind the driver's side headlight, so those with an open short ram air intake would benefit from it a lot. My intake is behind the driver's side T3 port.

usranger80 05-17-2013 11:38 PM

There is no reason I can't take the lid off the CAI as far as I know, should work just fine right? The functional ram air is really just an added benefit, the looks are what sold me on the hood.

usranger80 05-17-2013 11:40 PM

Btw, with all the horror stories about this hood my body shop guy said he was impressed with the quality, the passenger corner in the front did have the lift but he said all they had to do was adjust the stoppers and shim the fenders and they got it to lay flat. Hope to have more pics next week.

Couple of pics of the stripes layed out, going to get sprayed tomorrow.

USMCSSGT-RET 05-20-2013 06:17 PM

Man, she's looking good. I'm getting excited to see it, I can't imagine how you're feeling!

usranger80 05-20-2013 07:09 PM

Yep, I have yet to see a camaro on here with this hood and ZL1 bumper too, hoping it turns out great, hood fits not perfect but darn close too.
