Lower Bumper blackout to mimic ZL1 look?

I'm wondering if anyone makes a lower bumper vinyl blackout that would sort of mimic the ZL1 front facia? Here's a quick photoshop rendering of what I have in mind. What do you guys think?

Yep. Made my paper templates then cut them from a roll of semi gloss vinyl. I cut my own grand sport stripes too. Getting ready to take on a much bigger vinyl project this week.

Most people just use gloss black vinyl to cover up the strip, but you could also paint it too I guess.

Marley - nice. Do you have a photo album somewhere? I'd like to see that from more angles.

The lower blackout looks great on the SS fascia. Very Aggressive. Do it!

Brandon, I have the exact same worry. I don't want TOO much vinyl on there or it may start looking tacky. Marley, was it difficult to get the cuts just right on yours? Since nobody is making one of these, I'd probably have to do it myself.

I wonder what it would take to get Bigworm or Ridergraphix or someone to make this

Thanks Viral. It was a tricky piece to make. I make all my own striping though because I always want things to be a little different. Like my grand sport stripes were custom made by me also. I wanted them staggered widths and to stop before going into the wheel well.

The bumper blackout took a couple of templates to make and was tricky to install just right.

Here's a couple more shots of the blackout:

This loks AWESOME! I suck at photoshop, could someone do this on my car? Like BrandonB956, I am also worried it might look like too much vinyl.

I'd love to do that to my Synergy! I'm way behind on mods as it is... Took a year off to let the wife cool down over the $1000 stereo system lol.

would grand sport stripes and rally stripes be too much? and what colors would complement the Synergy green/cyber grey stripes?

@marley, exactly what is different about your grand sport stripes? I'm looking at making my own too, but I'm worried if I change them too much if someone is going to say "those aren't grand sport!" And great job on the fascia blackout, I've been working on a template for that myself... not doing so great... tips?

Yes, I do all of my own work. This was the very first time I have ever done any vinyl work and it came out great!
