It's not just a single piece, there's the water management piece, grills etc. Go to post no. 1 to see all of it.
Also check how much GM are asking for theirs, thousand$$$.

Also,you have to consider the market.I see a lot of aftermarket parts that seem to be over priced,but you have to consider what goes in to producing the parts (material/r&d,etc.) that will fit only are specific cars.Some parts I consider to be worth having,most I don't.

Unless you buy a flimsy EBay knockoff hood you can't get any other ZL1 style hood or insert cheaper.

I was planning on installing mine today but the weatherman missed the forecast... Instead of sunny and mid 50's is going to be cloudy and low 40's.... Since it rained all day yesterday the humidity is high and its not drying off well.
Update 11:15 AM:
Well it started looking better outside, so I got everything together to start, and just before I started taping it off the phone rang. A friend of ours invited us to come over for Christmas dinner around 2. So Now I don't have time. Ugh.

I have done my Order. So I think it will be the first ACS TL1 in Germany, or maybe in Europe. Wow, I have never done anything at first in Europe. That sounds good

Happy Holidays to everyone here!!!

Easiest mod I have done other than sticking on emblems with two sided tape.
I have a pic in the 4 pack gauge install thread...

I couldn't get ahold of my friend with the paint booth so I cranked up the heater in my storage building. Took some Duplicolor matte black spray paint and sprayed the insert. Unfortunately something got on the paint in one spot and left a little bump on it but overall I am happy with how it looks. I'll hit it with some sand paper and respray it later. Matte black is pretty forgiving.

I can still see some Orange peal in it, I guess I didnt sand it enough before painting, then again it could be the paint I sprayed.. i will have to get a good look at in the sunlight before I pass final judgement..
I was actually more worried about getting the striped effect or splochiness from using a rattlecan.. but none is visible.

Thanks,
I mainly wanted to get some paint on it that would seal the primer so I can get it installed. Then this spring I will do a better job on it when I get a custom stripe painted.
