Love it. Two questions: 1) what are you doing with the grill, 2) what's that Wagner gun and yellow plastic putty knife thing?

You probably already know but there is a Chevy badge delete for the one in grill. Matching black blank that snaps in. Like a radio delete. One of my customers had it so I asked.

1)I'm ordering a black heritage grill this weekend....no badges :P

2)The Wagner gun is simply a heat gun. Two heat settings...used in many home and auto applications. $22 @ Home Depot. The card is from Auto zone for less than $4..... Basically a lil kit for DIY window tinting. Came with the yellow card to "squeegee" and a small box cutter. The yellow card worked perfect, really thin and rounded corners, plus it bent so it helped me avoid certain angles and help pull the badges from the car

SUKXOST... I had thoughts about doing something similar after I ordered my 1LE. I've had second thoughts about adding a S/C because of throwing off the balance of the car. What are you doing to compensate for the added nose weight? I'm sure with aftermarket parts it is doable. I've been meaning to call Pedders about this btw...

No plans at this point. The 1LE as you know is very very capable of phenomenal handling. If the 10-12's can get away with a SC.....yes with more nose weight..... then I'm sure my Pfadt lowered 1LE will handle just fine.

Time will tell.

Are those the used tires that were for sale on the forum? Cause you got a great deal on those.

Also, the debadging video is awesome. I may have to do the same after seeing that. I love the sleeper look.
