Hood Insert

Maybe I've missed it but... Does anyone know why the hood insert can't be the same color as the hood/car? I am ordering my ZL-1 in yellow and would really like the insert in yellow as the strip package I want would look better if the hood was all one color. Just wondering.

Too complicated to paint the insert that many colors . . . there is always a body shop that can paint it for you.

It's held on with a few nuts. Unbolt it and have it painted if you wish. It's your car.

I predict at least one insert flying off in the 1st 3 years.

It was with the same announcement that explains why the production line is shut down and no ZL1's are being delivered

There is no carbon fiber package. The only availlable CF part is the exposed hood insert. The car that had the carbon fiber spoiler was a concept known as the Carbon Edition.

Though I do hope they release the CF spoiler for sale at some point in the future. It looked pretty sweet.

Hugh?? Originally the exposed carbon fiber was said to be on constraint,
(although some were made originally), and the only thing you could order
was the painted carbon fiber hood. I know that for a fact because my
order date came in on the first wave of orders and I passed on it because
I wanted the exposed fiber hood.

Then latter (few weeks or so), the painted fiber hood was placed on constraint due to problems and all you could order was the exposed carbon hood. Then shortly after that the production of ZL1's halted and all the ones which were ready to be shipped were also placed on hold due to some undisclosed issue.
As fas as I am aware of the situation the painted fiber hood is still on constraint and the exposed carbon hood is the only hood you can order at this time.
If they has changed again I would like to see the official announcement of
this. Since I am ordering the exposed carbon hood, and its an issue for me concerning this car.

I was being a smart A$$ I haven't heard anything about that either. I too gave up my first slot because the exposed was all I could order and I don't want exposed. So now I'm like you and wondering what is available when the orders start up again.

So that's why the QC hold on production...the hood insert is likely to fly off under hard/constant acceleration...well I hope they're using some stronger rivets!...J/K
