I thought about converting mine to the new Z28 look as it makes the car look like a track car which I love and of course it would fit your car perfectly.

See you at Sema just 19 day's away.

I just think the Z/28 style will look great in white with all the trimming in black.

Unfortunately this means that all the carbon fiber panels we had made (ZL1 diffuser, ZL1 rockers, ZL1 rear spoiler 1LE splitter plus the trunk and hood) will have to go. Kinda disappointed about getting rid of my hood as its a beautiful piece, 100% dry carbon both inside and out. The weave is gorgeous! Currently its getting clear coated. So far it has 12 coats of clear on the underside alone. We did this to fill in some pin holes that you in the carbon. I need to go by next week to give the green flag that we are satisfied and finally it will get two more coat of clear with a minimal amount of flatting agent to give it a satin look. The hood alone was $3,200 on I'm going on time and material on the paint so how know how much we'll have into the hood alone when done.
