Mike disassembles the calipers prior to powdercoating. He then reassembles them. All you have to do is install them once you get them back. Here is a link to his sales thread.

Anybody put Red Calipers on a ZL1

Mike does it all. No exchange available for the ZL1. If you coordinate with him, his turnaround was quick. He had the calipers done in 24 hours. Total downtime was 7 days.

If you're talking about the fog lights, it's an Allen wrench. I'm not sure which size, but if you have an assorted set I would try starting in the middle. The DRLs are not adjustable.

For the ZL1 fascia, you could always try the Big Gulp from Roto-Fab. It's a scoop that fits in place of the brake duct and allows you to diver air into the intake or the brakes. Your buddy would need...

I've seen this issue on many Camaros, including my ZL1, so I believe it's just a quality and fitment issue. Some cars have it, some don't. If it's a problem, take it into your dealer and complain.

The pinch weld is actually the recommended jacking point for the Camaro. The ZL1 rockers actually have a cutout for a jack to sit on the pinch weld.

The popular choice here is the Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 315 & 285 (or 295), but I personally like the Goodyears for the price. I am not convinced that the PSS are worth 50-60% more cost, but...

Broken AAC sidemarker

This is a common problem. I replaced mine and the second one did it too. Save yourself some headaches in dealing with AAC and go with the 3M double sided tape.

I agree. I think it is too low in the back now, but just by a little. Ride quality has suffered a bit as well. It was perfectly square until I swapped to 285 rear tires, now it has a negative rake. I...
