i have a question regarding the stripes. You mentioned you bought them at GMparthouse. I went to the GMparhouse webpage and couldnt find it.
Would you mind telling me where to get them please? thank you!!
Hi Amedal - sorry for the late reply. I've been Mia from the forum for a while. They do sell them there but it's not listed, you need to call and ask for Patrick. Hope this helps. Oh, thanks for the nice compliments!

It was time to tighten up the chassis and dial in the suspension a bit. Many thanks to American High Performance for the install! I'm having some other things done at AHP and will review once I get the car back. I'm looking forward to seeing how this beast handles and feels now.

Newest suspension mods -

BMR subframe brace
BMR toe rods
BMR trailing arms and bushings
BMR control arms
BMR tunnel brace
BMR Safety loop

I also swapped out from the GM strut brace to Hotchkis 4 point brace. I don't have pics of that just yet.

Cosmetic mods to come soon...

-ZL1 custom front end conversion with brake ducts, liners, and underbelly pan.

-Oracle SMD side markers

-Forgeline DE3C 20x10 20x11 wheels (Satin Black with Black Gloss Lip and Orange Pinstripe) wrapped in Micheline Super Sports. Custom Painted ZL center caps to match wheel theme.

-Powder coated rear Brembo Calipers to match the front.

-I worked with Gary at emblem pros to make some updates to the badging to match the overall color scheme.

We'll see in a couple weeks how everything turned out. I'm looking forward to getting everything together.

It is true we have very similar builds, many of my mods I consulted prior to purchase from my C5 brother Kronix. So far so good... However, not so good to the wallet . We seriously have to plan a point to stop!

Thanks Pierre - I will absolutely jot down some good pros and cons once I get the car back. I will do a street review and once spring comes a round we'll see how this beast does on the road course.
