2015 Camaro "1CF" Build

This is my build i code named 1CF the CF standing for Carbon Fiber. Car is a 2015 1LE with almost 5,000 miles on it. Excited to start this process as i am a boat mechanic by trade and this is kind of a first for me.

Current mods are a carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber z28 spoiler, carbon fiber lower grill insert, carbon fiber intake cover, carbon fiber cooling plate (all of these parts are from the Moreno brothers who are bar none the best group of guys to work with)

Other modifications are k&n cold air intake, stainless power long tube headers, tuned by east coast supercharging, billet fuel rails & of course the NPP fuse pull!

I plan on doing many other modifications and would like to share the journey! Thanks for viewing!

I have never been a huge fan of the refreshed 14/15s but this one with all of your CF touches, Z/28 grille and engine bay cleanup is SWEET

Wasn't to bad at all. Front took about 30 mins including jacking the car up and removing tires. Rear took about 20 mins. I just wish it was that quick to get my painted carbon parts back!

Do you have guide or how to for it, or did you throw a hail mary on it? Anything to watch out for?

I'm pretty mechanically inclined I'd like to think lol...if you get stuck on anything just ask but it was pretty straight forward. There is one bolt behind the fender wells that took me a sec. to find. Not to bad though

Yea buddy! Love the black and carbon mix. Going to clear the carbon pieces in candy black to remove some of the grey. Trying to do all the hardware with a billet look. I like the contrast with the 2.
