ZL1 engine cover and strut brace custom painted by River City Creations

Hello Friends, just wanted to share a little of what my daughter and I work up. On the cover, I sanded off the LSA, primered and painted the cover, my daughter hand painted the "supercharger" lettering. I then added the ZL1 emblem, what do y'all think? custom painted the strut brace, had a ZL1 stencil made and painted them on

More info on all our custom painted parts at www.camarocustoms.com

Feel Free to post your pics on my thread NOTE: Posting pics here also allows River City Creations to use them on its vendor threads, websites and other online media. We will not abuse this privilege and all pics will be used in a respectful manner. thank you Lupe

Lupe, we spoke via PM's about these mods a few weeks ago. After seeing these pics, I am ready to pull the trigger. The only difference I wanted was the center of the strut brace in Ashen Gray. Are you able to order these parts now or will I still need to send you mine? I know when we last messaged you were not able to order them. I did find out I can order the engine cover, but I haven't checked on the strut brace. I'd really like to keep my original parts and order painted replacements from you.

PM me and let me know what we can set up.

Lupe, that is some really nice work. I am very impressed. The ZL1 badges that you are using on the strut brace and engine cover front, are they the emblems from the hood or the trunk ?? Thanks.

OK, thanks. I would never have guessed the one on the cover was from the grill.
