Pete, did you find a SS tire inflator kit? Easily pack a couple grand worth of parts in the spare tire well....

yep. maybe a 2nd set of hands to push the top of the tire in. I think Pete said it was about 2degrees of camber. And when you are done? Put it back up on stands, loosen allens, put the tires back and tighten back down.

tune...gears... I could be set again for a while.

oh, and the fact that we have a couple spare pumpkins lying around might help.
$210 including the install kit & everything? nice! guessing you're doing it yourself, too, right?

i ain't saying gears don't help or ain't fun... just thinking down the road.
i know how you feel, though - so many things slap themselves ahead of toys on the priority list... like in my case, ever since the girlfriend moved to TX with me, the only thing i've managed to be able to buy for the car (or truck for that matter) was a switch so i could run my fans whenever i want. that $5 was a stretch so much for my 416LS3

I still have it.

I was going to put it on and was excited as hell about it.

I ran into two problems...well, three...

My car is dropped...quite bit. And with that splitter, it's going to be only a few inches off the ground. Getting into the garage (up my steep driveway) is already going to be an issue. Trust me, if you saw my driveway, you'd understand. But, I was going to look more into it anyway, right? Regardless, it's a fiberglass splitter. One crack in it and it's going to be $$$ to fix.

Issue two...it need to have work done to get it to fit. It's not just a paint and slap it on piece. It is going to take cutting, etc. Not really that much of an issue. But, after the $$$ going into it to get it to fit and paint....we get back to the scraping issue.

Three... I don't know exactly how to paint it. I have the ZL1 side skirts on now. Black at the bottom. I kind of want to tie in the side skirts to the front. Make it a cleaner look. I dont want to paint it all black or it's going to mess with teh body lines. Paint it all CGM and again, messes with the body lines. So, what to do? Change out the side skirts and keep the front or look at this other possibility.

Once I saw the 1LE type splitter (which this basically is), it was a done deal for me.

I LOVE the Revolutions type splitter....always have. But I don't think it's going to mesh well with the side skirts.

Well I commend you on finding the right part for your car.

Sucks that you can't use your first choice. Going to sell it?

Thanks! Been waiting on one like this for a while. Saw it the night ACS posted it up and bought it the very next day. LOVE this splitter. Incredibly easy to install as well. I wasn't too fond of having to drill holes, but was kind of obvious it was going to happen with any splitter. It's solid....that's for damn sure!
