ZL-1 Grille done like I think Fbodfather Wished

I don't really care what anyone thinks..this is what I did today. (well, actually I do care or would not be posting) I hate the original grille, the Heritage looks a bit better, but I feel this looks like a CHEVROLET.

As you can see in my Avatar, I took the lower grille back to a charcoal metallic from white. The upper grille has more silver than shows. The horizontal surfaces are silver, only the two mid bars and all verticals are black. I have been working on this a bit at a time for a number of weeks. I would like to call it a work in progress, because I am not sure where I will really end up

I like it. This is going to sound stupid, but what did you do, which grill did you modify, or who makes that grill?

Stock ZL-1 grille masked off and painted dark tarnished silver like the 68 and 69 First Gen were. I masked off the two horizontal bars and all verticals

It will look better in daylight. There is much more silver paint than shows in the pics

I am not 100% that I like it completely, but it is going in the right direction for me. I had planned on white on certain parts, but it became just too difficult. This is the third time I have painted this grille in the last 2 weeks

I like the looks of that! It definitely changes the look of the front. Maybe I'll have to get one and do the same, but in blue instead to match my stripes.

It looks good. Only thing I found about that grill is that it is similar the rest of Chevy's grills that consist of the band across the grill with the big golden bowtie in the middle. I didn't like the Heritage at first but upon adding the bowtie and my SS emblem I like it much better than the ZL1 grill and the stock grill. Yours looks awesome painted like that and installed on a white Camaro.

It's definitely a nice touch for the SW color, it has a heritage and classic look to it. Keep up the good work!
