I prepared my "bed" in the garage when I told my wife that I got the sway bars installed without discussing it with her.... luckily she didn't find out from someone else and eventually understood that it was a deal that I couldn't pass up.

I think I'm finally getting my heritage grille painted... it's been sitting in my garage for nearly a year. :/

.. I went back and forth on it for a long time, but since I blacked out the front, I decided to go with black. If I didn't black out the front, I would have went with Yellow.

did you have to take the dash apart to do this? is there a guide / walk through anywhere so i can see the difficulty on this mod?

I went the "hard" way... I removed the bezel around the speedo/tach and illuminated it with 3 of the same OEM LED's that are used in the door panels.... It wasn't "east" but it sure wasn't as hard as putting a new dashboard and heads up display in my friends 2011 LS Camaro.

Thank you, Sir. I still have to add a little something extra to be different, but I'm very happy that I went with black. (If I didn't have the fascia blackout, I would have gone with Rally Yellow)

I can't wait to get these new ZL1 rockers and GM front splitter installed..... just waiting on the missing bracket for the splitter. (can't install it without the bracket.)

I need input too... The front splitter is painted black, but the lower parts of the ZL1 rockers are matte black (stock color)... should I have the splitter re-painted matte black, sell it and get another one that's unpainted, or paint the lower portions of the ZL1 rockers gloss black (like the splitter)?

If...(haha) you asked me,,i would say do the rockers matte black..for main reason a maintenance thing...cleanliness, small chips won't show as easy, and the black will go with front end also..some black highlights ...JMHO..

The issue is gloss vs matte. The rockers are already matte black... splitter is gloss black

Didn't like the gloss black look on the front splitter, so I decided to have it painted to match the ZL1 rockers..... "satin black". I'm EXTREMELY happy that I did!

ZL1 rockers and front splitter installed:
