Finally had time to drop off car for mod installs

Dropped off my Camaro at my local shop to get a few mods installed.. ZL1 front fascia, dual vented front fenders, ZL1 rockers (Thanks for the great products Gary!!, orange10s.c.) and DJ Hawkeye Retractable Grille (Thanks Unique Auto Depot ) I'm hoping to pick my Camaro up Wednesday, if not sooner, then off to San Antonio to see Lupe, overhaulengine, to have vertical doors installed on Friday..sometime between that time or after I'll have the NS-1 stripes put on as well.

Love this forum and all the resources it has to offer!

I'm loving the new look of my Camaro! I have some NS-1 stripes in polished black... I would like to hear some opinions if this is "too much black"?? Camaro already has a black convertible top..

Thank you all for the compliments.

Has anyone seen a yellow convertible with stripes? Just wondering if it will be too much black...I dont want to take away that much yellow.
I'll try putting the stripes up against the car and see how it looks..

Next, I'll be lighting it up with LEDs.. undercar and footwells to start off and painting stitching yellow when I get time.

Looking great 2LTVert! I finally got my Hawkeye grille straightened out myself! Did they have any issues with the Zl1 fogs and the Hawkeye at night with the car on?

I just had the shop install mine on Thursday..they didnt wire it correctly. signals dont work with during the day the way they should and bottom left fog light wont come on.. I had to take it from them though so I could have Lupe in San Antonio install my vertical doors. I hope I can get time to take it back to the shop to get the wiring corrected soon.

Wiring issue aside I love the new look!! Have any pics of your install Pharmaro?

Exactly! It took them FOUR DAYS to install ZL1 bumper, rockers, grille, and fenders! and when I picked it up my Camaro was filthy!
Im not looking forward to going back to them but they were paid to install these items and they need to fix it!

Yeah..they should have been simple replacements but took FOUR days and still resulted in wiring wrong and a dirty car. Not cool!

The wiring may not entirely be their fault, my Hawkeye harness was labeled incorrectly but I was able to figure it out based on their supplied diagram though. I waited 3 weeks for a resistor to come because my JDP halos screwed with the relays. I got it working but it was too late/dark last night for pictures/video. I have some install pics in the original thread in the sales section.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll try searching for them when I get a chance and see if I can get the wiring fixed. Thanks Pharmaro.
