Even though the aggressor 2 is suppose to be a better fitment I don't trust it after all the issues the aggressor 1 had (honestly who makes a product where the buyer has to mod it to make it fit properly?) I thought about the ZL1 bumper cause I love it but I also though about getting as SS bumper adding a lower and upper grill and a splitter or just staying with the v6 bumper and getting the GM GFX splitter since it is the only one that looks good in my opinion along with a lower and upper grill. (Sorry )


Btw the seperate clutch thingy and brake thingy look good haha. Did you change your brake fluid? If so how did you might do it to mine.

To be honest bud by the time you buy the SS bumper painted 700+$ plus the shipping and GFX splitter you could probably get the Zl1 bumper thats what pushed me to getting the Zl1 bc the SS bumper isnt worth that much money IMO

But thanks Bro! it definitely feels like it stops a little bit better...and yes i did. It was disgusting. i'll post up a pic of it in a second.

Honesty since you're an automatic which means you have the white factory mold cap as to where i had the rubber hose where all the clutch dust went in my brake booster you techinically dont need this mod.

However you can turkey baster/syringe the brake fluid and refill it with Motul fluid and you should be good to go

True about the bumper. And that brake fluid is nasty. Idk what color it is suppose to look like but mine looks like a nasty yellow/green-ish color. I should prob change it?

yeah, used you can find them for a good price. Thats just what i was quoted from Maureen at rodgers Chevy. I never see one in the local Marketplace and i dont trust anybody not in driving distance with something like that.

Little update, took my splash guards off and installed my GFX rockers. I'm almost shocked to admit how much i like them as they are in argent grey. Plan to get them painted black along with the rear GFX piece soon.

Lookin' good. Love that rear diffuser with the square exhaust ports.... I would have gone that route if I hadn't found someone with totaled ZL1 with a perfect rear bumper to salvage. (Just have to get it repainted Rally Yellow)

Awesome thread so far. I love what you have done with the car and as well that most of it (if not all ) it was DIY. That car is definetely a neck breaker. I got a long way to go before I can make my car look like that.

That is what my future wife tells me. But I tell her it is a investment for a classic. Cause it will be a classic like all the other Camaro's. In 6 months I've been able to just get the Halo Headlights and the HID bulbs. It also doesn't help that I am also saving for a wedding.

It'll be a classic for sure.... especially seeing what changes they've made on the 2014's.

Your getting the IPF kit? I was thinking and l was looking at it, but I don't know if I want to void my warranty so soon. I was just going to do visual mods until the warranty is up. You need to tell me how much of a difference it makes when you get it!
