We spoke with Skip (Jeff's father) yesterday. Skip will be sending Craig to different hammerhead casting to mock things up. The second casting is a new design. Jeff is sending me a brochures with pictures. It's similar to the C-4 Corvette with torque arms.

Got the Z/28 diffuser today. Now it's off to make molds to replicate in carbon

Basically we are starting over and replacing all these pieces we did. Dang GM for doing the refresh

  1. Front bumper painted with no orange peel
  2. Rear bumper painted with no orange peel
  3. ZL1 grill (brand new)
  4. RS head lights
  5. Rear tail lights
  6. Dry carbon hood (4 coats of clear on booth side. With the last coat being sating)
  7. Carbon Trunk (completely smooth the underside and painted in satin gun metal and the out sating cleared)
  8. ZL1 Carbon rear spoiler (satin cleared)
  9. ZL1 Carbon diffuser (satin cleared)
We are keeping the carbon rockers just in case we can't get the Z/28 rockers done before SEMA. The 2013 1LE carbon splitter looks like it will work on the 14. We will know later this week as the front dumper should be in tomorrow.



We just love the Z/28 look and the goal is to replicate all the pieces in carbon.

Thanks man! The only unfortunate part is that it will delay completion. We were thinking of putting the car together with all the other pieces and doing a refresh for SEMA. But we are tired of redoing things. That would mean we would have to tear out the glass again to do the roof, etc... We just let it sit there while we wait.

Hey Casey, here is an update on the tubular rear cradle:

As you can see the jig has been fabricated. The 1st thing Craig had to do was to machine plastic bushings to mock up the jig. The factory bushing had to must play to work. The cradle will be solid mounted but he still needed to make bushing to take measurements for the pick up points.

Stay tune as we will be updating the progress. Our cradle should be done by the end of March.
