Hi Rc, Thanks for the compliments & welcome to the forum! I just checked my sales receipt to confirm what the tire size was, and that is correct. The car's at the shop, finishing up the ZL1 fuel pump install & we're putting an X-Pipe on the exhaust since it had to be taken down. I will confirm the tire size when I go there today, a few members asked for pictures of the V1 radar system so I'll double check the tires for you. If you do decide to go that route, definitely let me know or contact Shawn (his contact info is on page 1 of the build sheet) he'll give you great pricing on wheels & tires, and they're forum sponsors too.

Here's a pic after we put the tires on, but before the 3dCarbon ground effects, so you can see what the wheels would look like on a stock body.





And here with the rear spats installed



Good luck with your Camaro search & thanks for looking!

Thanks for the info. The width of those rear tires really look aggressive. Why are the front tires 30 low profile and not match the rears of 25? Nice work all around the build!

RC, I'm not sure but I did confirm size today. When I told Shawn at WSI the set up I was planning on installing that's the size he suggested.


Here's the pics of the Valentine 1 radar system for those of you that asked about it, sorry it took so long to get pics up.


Roof liner mounted pod with V1 radar inside
Rear View Mirror with Concealed Display
Remote Audio Adaptor On/Off mounted in center console.


Any questions on install feel free to ask

Is Gary moving the line in a couple of inches on each side for your ZL1 fronts so it matches with the hood?

Yesterday we fitted a ZL1 front with a new "Force 5" hood. (points end in the same spot) There was enough material in the cover for me to carefully sand the lines inboard. Turned out great!

Eric I told Gary I have your Z-Force hood and he said he would be doing the bumper mod on it to line up with the hood.

Sounds good Dizzy, don't worry once you get the bumper it's on there for good! The waiting is the hardest part!!

Hey Kronix. I have a question regarding the SLP exhaust and rear solid panel. Is it best to install the SLP exhaust first or after installing the solid rear panel? The reason I ask is because if the install of the exhaust and rear solid panel is being done in two different shops then would the panel not line up correctly if the exhaust is installed while the original rear diffuser is on? Thanks a lot

RC, it shouldn't make a difference which order you go. We did the exhaust first while waiting for the rear panel, but because the SLP exhaust is fully adjustable and Eric's smooth rear piece are made perfectly, it all lined up with minimal adjustments. I think you can just go with what ever parts come in first, you won't have any issues with either of them. Looking forward to seeing your ride!

Speaking of exhaust, we added an X-pipe this week and it really made the tone a bit deeper, kind of reminded me of a Lamborghini exhaust note. I took a shitty video, so I'll do some editing and post it up so you can hear it.

Got my one of my "special" project pieces from Roger at Emblem Pros, they look awesome Roger! Now just waiting for them to hydrocoat my CAI, Inc lid...We decided to install the Pfadt Camber Plate kit also, so that is taking place this week and the ZL1 bumper from Gary's Customz should be in by Friday. Also installed Jannetty Racing Tensioner today, thanks for the help Ted! Looks like everything should be coming together right around the time I move to SoCal, then it's game on!

A pleasure RC, anything to help out!

Well got the X-Pipe installed, ZL1 Fuel Pump, Jannetty Racing Tensioner & 3.4 pulley. Now just waiting on the phone call from the shipping company that has the ZL1 bumper & my hydrocoated CAI lid from Emblem Pros.. In the meantime, I received my badging yesterday from Roger @ Emblem Pros and he just nailed it! Sorry no sneak peeks until they're installed

Did put together a video with the exhaust, sorry for the shitty quality, dark setting & dirty car, it'll be out in the sun soon enough.



Pictured below are the new Oracle Ghosted LED Sidemarkers, when the lights off it just looks like the body. Once the car's cleaned up I'll post better pictures, but you get the idea. I love these new side markers, because as I said it just looks like the lights come out of the body, on my previous side markers you could see the LED strip, now very stealthy, great job AAC! Also pictured is Jannetty's Tensioner, we still have to adjust it, rotating the plater clockwise to use the other holes getting the pulley closer. Also going to do some crinkle paint on it and make it black. Much better design than the stock tensioner, and this one really alleviates any belt slip.

Thanks P!!! Sorry for the shitty pics on the markers, it was in the shop, dusty and I just wanted to see what the rears looked like. Won't do the fronts till the ZL1 bumper gets in. So I hear you like being in the Superchargered Club Congrats Bro!!

Especially you would know what went on behind my thinking Luke,, since we've been talking since practically day 1...I saw the ZL1 coming out, saw a few things I wasn't crazy about on it, and wanted to build something that was all my ideas & faster! Thanks bro, I hope you enjoy your gift! :respect:




WHERE IS MY ZL1 BUMPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know exactly what you mean, you've succeeded greatly. There is nothing like having a one of a kind vehicle and being a good part of the architecture behind it. Artists may often start with the same canvas, use the same brushes, and even share some of the same colors, but in the end the painting is always unique and one of kind.

It's been fun working on our rides. And yes, absolutely dig the gift. Many thanks.

ZL1 bumper shipped from Gary's in Florida, supposed to take 4 days...well no phone call from shipping company today.....damn this wait is killing me, as if these next 2 weeks aren't hectic enough with the move to SoCal...oh well, hopefully I'll have a progress report Monday.

Have a good weekend all and enjoy your Camaros!

Don't hold your breath on that one Dizzy....I just checked with the freight company and I won't have it until Wednesday
It does NOT take 4 days, like I was told....Mine shipped on 4/30 and was in New Mexico this morning and got an email saying there was a 90% chance it would be delivered late, which meant Wednesday. As if I'm not stressed enough with the move to SoCal in the next 10 days, I need this BS like a hole in my head

On a side note, got the Pfadt Camber plates installed and that dropped down the Pedders coilover adjustment knob about a 1/2" so I won't be cutting a hole in my hood to accommodate the knob....And just my luck one of the Oracle ghosted sidemarkers I got had a defect in the LED, so that one had to go back....The only good thing that comes of all this BS is I'm not putting any miles on the car But when that beast is done SoCal will know I'm there!
