So I got the sub and amp installed and it sounds amazing! We spent two hours troubleshooting because we weren't getting any sound from the sub. We found out that the sub wasn't plugged in into the box. Thanks for telling me Daniel.
EDIT: Redid the wiring so it looks nicer

Very nice work! Sucks that you need that front plate though. That would drive me nuts.

Thanks. The local police has never bothered me about the plate, but the gate guards (military po-po) do.

I painted my engine cover. It was a pain in the ass, and it still didn't come out perfect. Also when I was installing it, the MAF sensor scratched it.
EDIT: Removed the engine cover.

I just placed an order for a ZL1 spoiler. I couldn't decide between rally yellow or black (first world problems ), so I flipped a coin. I should get it by Friday and hopefully I'll be able to install it next weekend. My next mod is a heritage grill.

Definitely some ZL1 side rockers


So far within this month I have removed both my High Wing and the stock grill. Definitely happy.
