Don't mind the ruckus... there is a build thread in here I promise... somewhere.

We used a lift so that helped get to the bolts behind the fenders. The ZL1 fascia needs to be assembled a bit... the lights, bezels, lower grille and splitter. There is some extra bracing for the bottom of the splitter to keep it rigid. And the harness..

I did go to a shop that had done one before so we didn't have to waste a bunch of time figuring out all the parts and pieces.

But all in all it was pretty easy. It's a bit of a jigsaw puzzle but pretty straight forward install.

You are. That nice jacket with the straps isn't the kind you wear to a wedding. And those padded walls have deeper meaning... Oh, and say hi to Mrs. Tran.

In the Navy the Master Chief runs everything. The officers think they are running things, but we all know it is the Master Chief in Charge. In that respect it is a lot like C5 where Tran is supposed to be in charge, but the Master Chief is GTAHVIT. Well not really like C5 because the Admiral and Master Chief are one in the same and it is Mrs. GTAHVIT that is really in charge

Justin, Thinking you are sane is the first sign of insanity... If you walk into a room with 20 people and don't see the crazy one, go look in a mirror...
