Autographs are from the GM Camaro design team and big wigs... I had the fuse cover signed at C5Fest #1 because during the fest Mike Judge gave me the VIN # for the Pace Car that was just built. I knew I trading the CGM car in on the Pace Car so I had them sign the cover and I kept it.

C5Fest 2 the same folks signed the Pace Car and this year I'll get the ZL1 signed. Until then, the fuse cover has found a good home...
I guess I will have to wait until you finish with your car so I know what not to do. That way yours doesn't look like mine.

I think white is an outstanding color for the ZL1....esp with the black wheels....totally menacing

.......All I would do is black out the rear spoiler if I had one

When is your car coming home?
Hopefully soon. I will let you know when it does.

Don't worry... I'm not touching the paint anywhere on the car... just the chome pieces.. And I purposly did the engine cover opposite of what you planned on.

Tks... the sidemarkers are just painted and cleared... nothing really special. I'll probably replace them with the AAC Led ones somewhere down the line.

Thanks man... the rear end really needed something and I think there will be quite a few blackouts done by others so this should do...

Looks FANTASTIC. I have a summit on order, mid June if I'm lucky.

What type paint and coat did you use ?

Was it a pain to reapply the badges ?

I had the paint work done... but I know they did order new Camaro badges for the fenders because they said it was easier and cleaner to add new ones and they are inexpensive. I just dropped it off so don't know too many details except Summit White w/ clear coat...
