A twinkle in my eye because they don't start building them for a few more weeks and I really don't want the first one they build. I think we let them practice building for 60 or 90 days.

Becky.

Can you ask your painter how long I should wait before I seal/wax the fascia?

Thanks again. Please let Maureen and Joe know I really appreciate it.

When I want GM parts I go to Maureen and Becky at Rodgers Chevrolet... They are Awesome. They take care of Camaro5 members and I've never had a single problem with anything I've ordered from them.

So, since my SS front fascia was crunched by someone backing in to me I went to Maureen and Becky to see if the insurance claim would be close to what a ZL1 front fascia would cost. And here is the result. Not only did they paint it before they sent it they trimmed the fascia so that the grooves line up to the SS hood cowl and it came out damn near perfect...

Thanks very much ladies. I couldn't be happier. I like it more than I thought I would.



Here are the latest pics now that the car is clean.

I think it looks better without the SS emblem.
Looks really good! Im thinking of doing the same with mine along with the ZL1 hood. How hard was it to install?

Stop with the thread jacking already. If you are not here to help educate GTAHVIT you shouldn't be here Besides, GTAHVIT didn't install it. Tran was going to do it, but Mrs. GTAHVIT didn't think he could so she hired a shop to do the work. Where is Mrs. GTAHVIT? I want to ask her to have a chat with Tran about GTAHVIT
