After months of anticipation, I finally was able to order my new custom ZL1 emblems from Roger at Emblempros. I ordered them on Monday and received them on Friday. For a custom made emblem, that is an amazing turnaround time and fast shipping! I got them put on the car Friday evening. Here are a few pics:













I also spent yesterday at the drag strip for the final test and tune of the year. My goal was to get below 12 seconds. The weather was perfect, about 70-75 degrees. It was a busy day, so after 5 hours at the track I only managed 3 runs. My first was a 12.54, my second was 12.16 (my best to that point) and my final run of the day (and the year) was a 11.92 at 116.91 MPH. My only mod is tires, and I am running a Nitto NT05R drag radial on 18x9.5 Corvette GS replica wheels.

Here is my time slip. I am car #3311 in the RIGHT lane:



A couple pics from the strip:







And a couple from the track photographer:





It was a great day and I was happy to have achieved my goal before the drag racing season ended for me locally.

I hope you enjoy the new pics.

Thanks for the compliments guys! Including the ones below, I think I am almost all the way to a calendar!

Seth- thanks for stopping by my thread! I appreciate your comments. I hope you are doing well!

Here are a few more pics I got from my photographer that were taken on a few different nights the strip:

This is a SWEET ZL1! Great choice on the color scheme, too.

Not exactly, though when I get this project done over the next week I will have my TSW Nurburgrings mounted for the winter. I'm adding a little color to the pieces that are missing...

Are you going with blue calipers on the ashen grey..... This is the last mod I have been putting off for about a year and Im still undecided.

I'd say Red since the emblems are.

Just when I think your ride couldn't get better...

SSTG is dead on- I'm having Mike powdercoat the calipers red to match all of my underhood items, the lighting and the emblems.

I did think hard about the blue, which I do think would look amazing on AGM, but chose to go with the more traditional red. The ZL will be black and the 1 will be silver and the Brembo will be black also. I cannot wait to get this done! My exterior mods are almost complete!

Wow! I am honored to have been chosen as COTW for this week! There are a lot of great rides on this forum and to think that I stack up with them means a lot!

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the compliments! I'll also be posting some new photos with my latest mods later this week!

Congrats Deke, as you already know I love your car and I think the Red Calipers might be a problem, we might have twin cars at that point, except yours has 580 HP
