A little 35% all around. I'll have some better pics when the car is back.

I had to put these on here. XVengeancex28 one of C5's top designers and artists outdid himself. He took on a project sketching out then painting my car on canvas. It came out incredible. Great work, Chris! Thanks for taking the time to do this and major respect for your talent.

It started with this:



And the final product...

I got the car back this weekend after getting a few things finalized at AHP. SLP had to put together a Loudmouth I exhaust with a few custom bends to marry up to the diffuser. Man this exhaust sounds wicked. I took a couple videos today, but the sound wasn't coming up right. I'm trying to get a perfect clip for everyone to hear. I couldn't be happier. This is what 600+ horses is suppose to sound like.

Once I get to retake the videos I'll post them up. I took a quick snap shot today of the new tint. Looks good, 35%.




I'm going to try to put the headlight armor on tomorrow as well.
More to come...

I took this shot a while back, the angles looked crazy, just thought it made a cool pic. Looks like the car fell forward off the lift? ;-)

Bu3ali - I do not think there is currently anyone that makes a diffuser like this outside of SLP. Unfortunately this diffuser is part of SLPs ZL series cars and they do not sell them separately. Maybe in some time they will?

Here is a pic with some Headlight Armor Smoke tint. Looking pretty mean...



I also just got off the phone with Roger at Emblempros, we are making some custom badging that will fit better with my orange/black theme. Stay tuned...

I put on some upgraded ZL600 badges courtesy of Roger at emblempros. Debadged the autobot (it was time), and put on black onyx camaro fender badge lettering replacing the chrome. These aren't the best pictures. I'll have more pics up and some good close ups from the Camaro Nationals.

Some pics of my car at the Camaro Nationals in the SLP booth right next to American High Performance. A couple of coats of Zaino Z2, Polisher in between and after, then some CS Clear seal to get some nice shine.











I stopped to take some nice photos on the ride back home.
