Received my new ceramic brake pads last night and just ordered the cross drilled and slotted rotors, so I will change everthing out as soon as everything gets here. I'm also going with the chrome OEM wheels (5 spoke). Now I will have to sell all the old stuff, everything has less than 400 miles on it. I'm hoping there will be takers out there. I was tired of all the brake dust, having to clean the rims after evey drive, that's my OCD kicking in.

OVER....I had the 5 spoke chrome and powder coated them gloss black for the same reason. I had the ceramic pads on my SS and they were not as good as the oem and the brake set up on the ZL1 has very good reviews.

Did you buy new bolts for the calipers or are you going to use the same bolts. I ask because I am about to change out my rotors but heard the bolts are TTY and must be replaced?

Lupe e-mailed me that he shipped my engine cover and cross strut today, I can hardly wait to get these installed on the car, I know these are going to look amazing!!
where did you get the front plate holder and does it scrape

I received my afterburner tail lights this week and I started to pull the old lights out tonight, I'm on hold until tomorrow to get some t-taps to wire them up. I also installed some tint on the lights. I will take some pics after I get everything installed. I'm thinking about leaving off the chrome surrounds, I already have some tubing to go around the lights, I will see how it looks.

Afterburner tail lights

Got my afterburner tail lights installed last night, what a real pain in the butt trying to wire these things in, but I'm really happy with the outcome, they look really sharp!

Engine cover

The UPS truck made another stop here at the house tonight, I got the engine cover and strut brace delivered from River City Creations (Lupe), got them installed and they look amazing! The pics really don't do them justice. I can hardly wait to get all the other carbon fiber parts delivered for the engine bay. My brake rotors are going to be delivered on Thursday, I will schedule to get them swapped out on Friday. I will take some before and after pics.

River City Creations painted the parts, price depends on the part, give their web site a review. Talk to Lupe, very customer oriented.
