ZL1 side skirts & ZL1 Rear diffuser Done >>

I finally went ahead and finished off my ZL1 Appearance mods by adding the ZL1 side skirts, and the ZL1 rear diffuser with some nice quad tips.

I had the GM GFX side skirts and rear diffuser I sold them to a fellow member.

Thanks to Maureen and the crew over at Rodgers Chevrolet for the hook up.

Enjoy

Car look killer, but to me the rear diffuser is missing some thing, its not bad but needs to be more aggressive, that is how i see it hope you dont mind.

I tend to agree I think they need to flair out more like the OEM GFX side skirts to give it that wide body look from the rear.

I did for less than 24 hours (until I took the car in to the exhaust shop to have the quad tips installed) if you had a 4" tip and it was centered I think it would look pretty good.

Thanks Ozzie if you factor in all of the OEM parts I sold and replaced with the ZL1 parts

ZL1 parts (front bumper, side skirts, spoiler, rear, insert)

$3564.00

I sold $2650 worth of stock parts (SS bumper, spoiler, GM GFX)

Total $1004 for the ZL1 parts

$2800 for the Rims and Tires
(Sold stock wheels and tires $1000)

So all in all $2804 for my ZL1 appearance conversion when it was all said and done.

Looks great, man. I think the ZL1 side skirts compliment the ZL1 front fascia more so than the GM ground effects.

I agree plus the more I was looking at it the more I noticed now much the side skirt texture/color did not match I was ready for a change. Plus a fellow member purchased my sides and rear GFX so it was an even swap into the
ZL1 parts.

Just picked these up too, needed to see them on a Camaro to make up my mind and the other ones I ordered were back ordered over a month. Did you weld these or bolt on?

If you get a chance can you take a pic underneath of the exhaust tips? Which exhaust do you have, and did you cut the old tips off yourself? Btw, your car is sweet, love the look.

I have the Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust, Yes the exhaust shop cut the pipes before and after the boxes re-welded the rear on and put new pipes in the front so they could bolt on the new tips. I will see if I can get a photo tomorrow for you.

These are the tips I purchased

Ok thanks, I have MRTv2, just wondering how hard it would be to take my sawzall to the current tips and bolt on the news ones. I bought the same tips as you have, got em from Amazon, but they are the same

The only issue I had was that the single tip exhaust is off centered thus the new pipe needed to be added the exhaust shop charged me $100 took them approx 45 minutes the end result I was very happy with it.

You will see in the second photo where the red arrow is you can kind of see where the new pipe is and how it bent I will get a better photo for you.
