Yeah, I had a big fight in my brain about this for a week, kept going back and forth. D-day came and had to make a decision, I guess we'll see what happens w/CRT ...good part is that if push comes to shove it's not a big deal to pull it and re-paint. Either way I'm completely stoked as this is being installed along with the GFX kit.

Easy to pull until you use the adhesive. But it can be masked and repainted on the car.

well i just placed it on the hood because its dry. and all i can say is that im disappointed in how it looks. i dont like the color , maybe its the lighting IDK but im going to have to think of a different color. Just to clarify, im not disapointed in ACS just in the color choice.

Hard to tell by the pictures... Sorry you are disappointed.

Have you thought about satin white?

Wait... I thought about it... never mind

Before you change your mind get it outside in the sunlight. It may look different in the light.

I paid $100 to paint my insert at the local Chevy dealership. I dropped it off at 9am and picked it up at 5pm same day.

I checked into it cost was close to $700 and they could cot guarantee the pattern would look good on the 4 vents due to the contour of the vents it would be trial and error.

Paint $100 good enough for me

heres what i did last night, painted it semi gloss black.
Maybe some better, quality pictures might help. In general, I'm not a fan of the gloss black. It makes the part look plastic-y, almost like a toy.

I like it. I think if you had the zl1 grill it would look awesome as well. If your getting/have black rims, I would leave it.
That AGM will look great as well like a member already mentioned.

Once you get the color figured out you are going to have a hard time not staring at it at every opportunity. Mine was easy with the black convertible top and matte black side stripes... Good luck with your choice.
