You will have to be patient it's a little cold out right now for the top to come down

Just got mine in today. Hope to get it on tomorrow.... Super stoked...

As of right now, quality looks really good. We will see how the color matches and fitment is tomorrow.

Take a look at the paint. Mine has some what I can best describe as micro marring under the clear coat. See how it looks. Also check the edge (pictured) I have some pits in mine :(. I have spoken with them and they are working with me.

Has the spoiler blocked any of your rear vision any? Additionally, this is a replica Z/28 spoiler, correct? Is there a difference between the brand you bought and the OEM spoiler from GM?

The OEM Z/28 spoiler from GM won't fit 10-13s due to the different trunk lid for the 14+. The Z/28 inspired spoiler from ACS Composite and DAR are the only ones that will fit 10-13s. Difference between ACS and DAR are the quality and price, other than that I think they pretty much look the same.

I'm still on the fence about this mod. I would like to see a side view of the entire car to see how the car's lines flow with the spoiler.

My only concern is the antenna. I do not want to relocate that.

Kind of the reason why I asked for a side photo. I think it'll look great though! My buddy had a beautiful bright red 3rd gen convertible with the Z/28 spoiler sitting on all black Iroc wheels... kind of the reason why I bought my ZL1, because I fantasized about that car all these years.

Looks like ACS has a version made specifically for the vert.

Up to you if it's worth the extra cost. You will get a better quality product though.

No visibility issues out the back just slightly higher than the shark fin



Hope these help for the time being

Attempted the install today.

At least you had one hole that lined up.
I had exactly zero.
I drilled pilot holes for now and going to try to decide if I want self-tapping screws or use nutcerts and bolts...

I have a little time before I need to figure it out.

I predrilled and used self tappers. Seems to hold fine
