Quite a bit more $$ to go ZL1 fascia... Something like $400 vs. $1,600 due to all the extra hardware ducts and things.

Owen just did one on Larry's twin turbo car and it looks great...

You don't have to buy the hood for the Z front end conversion. Gary modded the front end for me to match the cowl width on the hood.

I like the way it matched up. It gets a little lost with the difference in color where it meets up, but the one on the left side shows it better.

If you want a V6 fascia, I can give you one. It'll need paint though

I'm leaning more and more to a ZL1... wasn't really on my list... I kinda like the "sleeper" look of my car...

but... I do like the idea of a ZL1 front with the H Grille....

It'll look great with the Heritage Grill! This was the best straight on shot I could find. Lot of color, but you get the idea.
