I hope this is the last picture of the front clip looking like this. I got a few ideas and a few items on the way that I hope really change the look.

I can't do the ZL1 thing. To me it's worst than a V6 with a SS clip. I ordered the T3 ports from T and T, but they were on back order. I hope they have them already to start painting them. I bought another black SS clip that already has a GM GFX splitter, but it's made out of carbon fiber from Seibon. I also have Ofer's RGB halo kit and controller. Then I'm gonna install RGB LED strips inside the ports and wire them to the controller so the halos and ports all color shift at the same time.
Then I'll decide which carbon fiber hood I want and get that. Then paint IOM stripes on.

I agree, I wanted a ZL1 I would just buy one, but I do like the front end of it..

I really want the front of the ZL1 but don't want the label of a poser? But then again i don't really give a shit what other people think!

Thanks man, Haddad and I have been talking about a new forged engine. Really looking at a ERL performance Super Deck 6 bolt head 427CI block. We'll see because he favors bore over stroke for road racing and high RPM applications.

So I removed the CAMARO emblems from the fenders and put this in the same location.



Still waiting on T and T performance to paint and ship my T3 ports so I can finish my front clip mods.

Okay, so I had some free time to start on installing some Xmas mods.
So I had a spare SS front clip, so I hope to get the holes cut for the T3 ports then have the whole thing repainted then swap front clips.


Started cutting after using the template and marking with a Sharpie. The template was kinda cheesy but I guess it works.

Hole now cut out.

Test fitting the ports.

Installed

I had some spare waterproof LED strips and I might use the amber colored ones as DRLs. I tested some red ones to see how they look.

I wanted to get my own set of drag radials so I picked up a set of C6 ZO6 replica rims in 18x9.5 that I got form www.onlinetires.com. They were chrome and I wanted them in Hyper Silver but those are back ordered so I Plast-dipped them.

They were C5 rims and they were 18x8. They didn't fit right with the Brembros. He had 18s and 19s.
