So I received my ZL1 grill about a week ago, I called Lupe to get me a painted set of bowties to put on the front and back. Should be here anytime now. I also had Roger at Emblempros make me a set of SS emblems to cover the ZL1 on the grill.



I also got my side skirts from the GFX kit in that I'll be getting painted gloss black and installed at the same shop doing my Rideskinz bumper.



Just for fun I got an air freshener like the one from the first Transformers movie .



I'm taking my car today to the shop to get all this painted and put on, I'm still waiting on my MPD1 Hood to ship but it should soon. As soon as I get it I'll be taking it to the shop to get fitted with the bumper and painted. I'll try to get some progress pics .

Thanks for stopping by!

So I've finally had time to stop by my body shop to see how my car was doing and this is where we're at so far







MPD1 Hood is fitting great, Front bumper is still having some fitment issues but the shop told me they weren't too worried about it. I'm hoping in having it all done and home here in a week or so!

Stay tuned!

Hey Eric. I Haven't spoke to the shop in a couple of days, they were still having a bit of trouble getting the bumper to fit perfect. I'm hoping to get paint on the car by the end of this week or early next week. Btw they were Really impressed (as was I) with the looks and quality of your hood and had no problems getting that on at all. Thanks for such a good product! I'm excited to see it painted and finished!

UPDATE: So I finally got word from the shop today that my car will be ready to pick up tomorrow! After over two months of waiting for this shop to get my car done I'm finally getting her back!

I just wanna add a sidenote that I will never be going back to that shop again. I don't wanna turn this into a rant but at first when I spoke to the owner he seemed enthusiastic about the job and ensured it would be done quickly, and it would be done right. It seemed like it was done right, but not quickly and I never once was contacted by him to give me updates to let me know how things were. I had to call him every week. Each time I called it was always, they ran into another problem, when asked about ETA on completion I was always given "3 Days." 2 1/2 months later I can finally have my car back.

ANYWAYS, I Kind of ranted anyways .
But on a brightside, I get my car back, and as soon as I do, a buddy from work is going to help me put on the Stainless Works Catback exhaust I purchased from Jessika! Which BTW, gave great customer service

As soon as I can I will upoad pics. Stay tuned!

I got my car back on Wednesday and was finally able to take some pictures the other day but couldn't upload due to the sites maintenance but here they are! The weather hasn't been too good so this is the best i could do for now.

New MPD1 ZForce Hood, Rideskinz Aggressor front fascia, GM ground FX side skirts, and a spear stripe painted on the side of the car. Let me know what you guys think! :smile:







And my favorite pic so far



Sorry for such crappy photos, these were all taken on my cell phone. I should probably invest in a decent camera Haha. I wanna say thanks to Eric at MPD1 for the awesome quality in the hood and fit and customer service, Tony at Rideskinz for the great looking front fascia. Although it was a pain to install it turned out great! Lupe at Overhaul engines for the painted Bowties, quality was also fantastic, and Roger at Emblempros for the SS emblems that i still need to put on . They look awesome though!

I also have my SW exhaust installed and it sounds great! I will get a video recorded and uploaded later. Thanks again to Jessika for the customer service and FAST shipping.

I really like the hood and front end. Best color on a Camaro is yellow too. I think a dovetail spoiler would complete the look.

Nice work!

Here's a couple of pics after getting the catback exhaust put on! I'm still working on getting a video. I'm just looking for a decent piece of recording equipment. I don't want it to sound distorted. I'm really happy with the sound and ease of installation. Took about an hour with the help of a coworker using the hoist at work.



Getting rid of those HUGE cans on our cars called mufflers was nice. The chambered exhaust looks a lot cleaner
