RyanbabZ71's 2012 Ashen Gray 2SS Convertible

Rivercity painted SS emblem. It is black outlined and ashen gray in the SS portion. Very high quality

First winter mod

20x9 and 20x10 Factory Reproduction Gloss Black ZL1 Rims and Custom Painted (Black and Ashen Gray) Center Caps from Rivercity

Need a little warmth to go pull the stock rims off and take them in to be swapped over.

Phastek. They had a 6% off during the holiday. Shipping is free but included in the price. Direct from factory reproduction was about the same with shipping. That is probably your best bet

I love the stripes, old school and wide and not stopping at hood. Did they paint them or are they decals? I just ordered pink Rally stripes for mine and pink matching blackouts, was wanting to have them painted on but my hubby said it would ruin resale should I ever want to sale and not a lot of places even want to hassle with painting stripes anymore. I had a hard time finding stripe package kit in the style I wanted for convertible and color I wanted, but hope looks good when I get them on
