Making my Z28

Ordered my 2010 2SS/RS Oct 2009 and picked it up Feb,8 2010 at Pete Moore Chevrolet in Pensacola FL. I love it. It now has a lil over 10K miles. It's garage kept and with a cover about 50% of the time. It's Inferno Orange with Black racing stripes, orange and black interior, Powered sunroof with 6spd manual and also Boston Accoustic sound.

Add ons:
Maganflow 2.5" Aggressive street series full system exhaust.
SLP 1-3/4" Headers with 3" High flow cats.
K&N Cold air induction system.
160 degree thermostat.
Diablo Sport with SLP Tune.
Sinister functional Ram air hood with heat extractor and Sinister rear spoiler.
SS stainless steel kick panel on doors.
MGW short shifter on order with Custom Red back spider knob from Australia. Colors Orange and black knob.
Blacked out Bowties and SS badges.
Sinister hood and Spoiler at body shop waiting on my paint scheme decision.

Note: Car is getting about 28 MPG on highway.

Future:
SLP Super charger package for 630HP with fuel upgrades.
Black racing stripes on full body from nose to rear with factory pin stripe or two tone black and orange with Sinister ground effects package.

Just a start on the pics. Car still needs to go into Shop for hood. I'm thinking about going with the two tone look. Black top and orange bottom with black ground effects also with orange spears on the hood.

Put the car in the shop to paint a two tone pearl black top with factory inferno ornage sides and Black pearl Sinsiter ground effects with Sinister Ram air hood and dove tail spoiler. Should be completed by the end of Sept just in time when I get back from work.

Two tone

Alright here is the final touches of the paint job. Still have some emblems to put in place and it will be complete. But that will be next week sometime once I get home to take the pics and pic the car up. I need to find a good place with a nice scenary for it.

Got some pics in today of the car out of the shop. Still needs the Emblems but the guy wanted to know if I still wanted to put them on. It's a tough one but I think I'm going with the Emblems that are chrome with black inlays. So it will still match and go with the Bowties. So here they are. I'm excited and can't wait to sport her around.







Thanks To Billy Owens for the excellent job he done and ideas he provided.


I'm going to remove the Stickers. I like the top Auburn University but the white AU and advertisement has got to go.

The Bowtie is going back in place. The car was just cleaned up real good prior to installing the emblems. I don't have the pics with emblems yet. I will have them this wknd when I get back home. It's the stop Bowie with flat black vinyl inlay.
