ZL1 front fascia and hood

I can't be the only person wondering who will be the first to offer the ZL1 fascia and hood, I know I would be the first person on the forums to order them both. Who else is looking to get these part for their current model. Maybe if we can get enough buzz going and establish a demand someone will supply.

It was said in the video that ZL1 front end won't fit the SS. I don't know if Mr. Opp' had mis-spoken, but I remember that being stated. Perhaps there are some changes to the radiator support or fender aprons that we don't see, but it seems to me the fenders are the same, so I'm confused why that statement was made.

My point - I'd be sure everything is interchangable, first

Ain't nothin' wrong with that

If the fenders haven't changed, the only thing that would preclude someone from swapping facias would probably be the hood, for the most part. If the hood didn't change, perhaps the bumper bar or absorber changed, both of which are not a big deal to swap over. OR - maybe it's because of the addition of seperate DRLs, unlike V6 and SS models I really don't yet understand the basis for the statements, but we'll find out in a while.

He was very clear that it won't look right on the SS. It was never said that it physically couldn't be attached, at least not where I could hear!

But changes were made where it won't fit or look right on the other models. :(

I completely agree with you on that one. Out of respect for the performance models. I don't care if you put an SS badge on it or an RS badge on it you're a poser for putting a higher performance models front fascia on yours.

LS/LT Fascia on LS/LT, SS on SS and ZL1 on ZL1. I mean wouldn't it make you a little sick to see a base model with a ZL1 front end? That is unless of course you have a supercharged V8 making upwards of 600 HP.

Not....really.

Can we not start ostracizing people that don't even exist, yet?

No I wouldn't say so because the side skirts aren't really all that different.

I'm not trying to exclude anybody, I'm just making a statement about how it removes exclusivity from the ZL1 if every Tom, Dick and Harry goes around putting a ZL1 front fascia on their Lower Performance Model, and when I say that I mean if it is a LPM like a stock V6 or even a stock V8. I'm not trying to disrespect anyone I think it is wrong as a whole to put the higher performance model's part's on the lower performance model. Which even the SS will be next year. I'm not trying to single anyone out I mean this as a whole group. I can certainly say that if you want to use an aftermarket body kit that is similar to the ZL1 but not exactly then fine but let the people who paid for the ZL1 have the full package look for themselves.

It really doesn't rub me the wrong way. If I were a ZL1 owner, I would know what I have. And that would be enough for me. What's more...that the look is appealing enough for someone to put in the effort of buying and placing it on the car would be a bit of a compliment to me.

Plus, you've got to figure that "every Tom, Dick, and Harry" won't be putting on the fascia.Not realistically, especially considering all the great aftermarket pieces out there...several enthusiasts whom we're sure to know around here might...and that's fine by me. It wouldn't be nearly enough to get upset or resistive over, imo.

This reminds me...There was a rash of Corvette enthusiasts installing a Z06 body kit on their LT Corvettes. It looks real slick, just like the Z06, with the wider fenders and bigger air vents, etc. I noticed when browsing around the site that about half the Z06 owners didn't care, as I said above, they knew what they owned. And the other half seemed very insecure...as though an LT Vette with Z06 skin somehow made their real Z06 less impressive...I always found that attitude a bit odd.

And then, ironically...the factory did it, too!! The Grand Sport Corvette body work is nearly identical to the Z06!

But...I digress, because if what we've heard is correct...it won't fit, anyways.

I don't see the big deal in someone putting ZL1 body panels on an LS/LT/SS as long as they aren't sporting ZL1 badges. Maybe some people just want the look without the high price tag, power, and suspension.

The Mustang/Corvette guys have been doing this awhile with Cobra/Z06 bumpers, rockers, hoods, fenders wheels etc. I've never seen any of them call each other posers or look down on the guys who bought the panels and added them, as long as they weren't sporting Cobra/GT500 or Z06 emblems.

Hrmm... I wonder what the Leno style hood would look like with the mohawk CF extractor in the middle ?

Maybe too much, but maybe just right.




I have a saying that too much is never enough.

It will be fitted we will see it done. It's got to be what lies behind bumper. Lots of trimming but bet it will be possible.

What you said! some people just want the look more than the performance. Personally I wouldn't do it but we all have our different tastes and ideas. I just don't like it when someone asks me if my fourth gen is a true SS ....that gets old.

Yeah, fbodfather says its different but i don't see it being to drastically different. Couldn't be too much of a difference. I like it but the dual fogs annoy me. I would remove one and add functional cooling vents.
