Added the zl1 splash guards today. More of my trusty wire ties.




Can't believe these cars with the 11" wheels don't have em stock!! Look at all the crude!!



You could do this mod without taking the bumper off but I was installing my LED reverse lights, so it made it easier. They fit very well.



Check out the connections to the duel mode exhaust.

Installed the AAC reverse LEDs today also. I really like how bright these things are!

They are held on by three 7mm screws.



The connectors come off... it is a press and pull kind. Be easy... nothing should be hard... if it is use more fineness not more force.



I have the tinted or smoked version.



Finished product.

Chirped them at seventy in third today!! No performance mods yet. Gets put on dyno tomorrow at lethal racing.

Today I finished with the exterior lighting mods.



AAC led bowtie... sprayed with plasti dip



While I was in the area placed some dynamat. Just followed the existing wire with my loom.



You don't have to take the trunk apart for this bowtie light mod but I did.



Here is the trunk driver's side fuse box. npp fuze NOT pulled.



And here is where I tapped into the tailights.



While I had the trunk torn apart...



And the back seat out...



Finished product...

The extra mass lowers the car.
