Lukeko,

I dig your car, I was on a waiting list for a ZL1 and my dealer didn't get one in, but I found a used 2010 ZL575 (#144) with only 2500 miles in Oklahoma that I am thrilled with. SLP did a great job with these cars, and they are very nice to deal with even though I am the third owner. You will never find another one like yours

I teetered pretty hard between the two as well, but am very happy with the ZL from SLP. I bet you are having a ton of fun with yours as well! I agree, the uniqueness in these cars is a big draw. Thanks for the note.

Luke

Im going to be installing the ZL1 front air guards later today. I'll try to take pictures and post. Might not be able to until tomorrow, depending on the timing.

Ok, I just finished installing the ZL1 front air guards. These pics arent the best. It was a pretty easy install, and they marry up nicely to the SLP front Lip.

Those guards do blend in nice. Just adds a subtle look!

It's going to be nice tomorrow, you should come out to Chick-fil-a in Dulles if you are not doing anything. Between 5 and 8 are the best times.

Cool, thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it this go around. Hopefully I can catch the next one. Have fun.

By far my favorite Camaro on the site since joining. I was going to trade in my 2011 SS Convertible for a ZL1 Convertible but not I am definitively looking at bringing the car to SLP. Where can I get that wing for my convertible!

I'll second Luke's comment about SLP's quality & service, those guys have been making cars go fast the right way for a long time! I'm more than happy with my SLP package as well, and have no complaints!

Air guards look good Luke, I'll have them on with my ZL1 bumper conversion also...can't wait! If you ever notice quite a few NASCAR's have them also

Thanks Jer4251 - for the front air guards, I don't have the actual part numbers on hand. I get all my OEM parts from gmpartshouse. Contact Patrick or Gene there and they can get you squared away.

Do the front air guards have any purpose other than style?

Hi Dizzy, they do. These were designed for the zl1 during the air tests to move air away from the front tires and wheels. How much of an improvement I'm not fully sure, but I know they did extensive research to make everything on the ZL1 functional. In this case it is a nice touch cosmetically too.

Thanks Tavo - it's the SLP hood made for the ZL cars. They do sell a similar one on their vender site slponline dot com.
