Many more performance mods to come after I get the word from "Rag Top Rob" on part numbers after he tells me the difficulty of installing the parts. I wish it would get warm again!

New pictures

Decided to back the car out of the garage since the sun was shinning, wanted to move the car since it's been sitting for a couple months. Hope we get some nice weather early this spring!

ABL lighting kit

Just finished up my ABL dash lighting, everything looks really good. It took a few times to get the right harness from Ofer. I don't know why the 2013 vert has a different plug at the 4 pack gauges. Also bought some cross flag emblems to install on the front fenders, just need to get some automotive tape.

Where did you get the carbon fiber?

Overpar73, you are truly the "Modfather". I'm more of a bone stock kind of guy, but your mods, as well as the ability to most of the work yourself, is very impressive.

ZL1 center console lid

Received my ZL1 embroidered center console lid cover, it took less than 5 minutes to swap out, it looks really nice!

Taking pics of the ABL lighting really doesn't work to good, you really can't see it from the pics.

Have a pair of new cross flag emblems to install on the front lower fenders when the weather turns nice. Need the temp to be around 65 for proper adhesion and my garage heater doesn't quite get that warm. I'm hoping for the weather to get nice soon so we can all drive our cars!

I'm still trying to come up with a couple of things and need help:
!. Complete exhaust system for our verts, headers, cats, all the way back
2. Drivers side A pillar with dual pod system for gauges

I'm sure I'm not the only one with a ZL1 vert looking for these mods!

They look good...but the ZL1 has really nice two peice rotors stock. I would have a lot of trouble swapping mine out just to have something drilled.

I agree the two piece rotor is preferred especially being able to just replace the disc and retain the hat. I'm sure you would agree the proper way would be to pull all four and take them to a machine shop and have it performed. That unfortunately takes time. It also requires you to look at your car sitting on jackstands until finished! I have had three sets of drilled rotors from three different companies on different vehicles and only one developed a small crack at one hole only. It was strange to find one. The rest have been flawless.

Honestly, I am against any machining after the fact by a company that did not manufactuer them. The aftermarket is kind of riddled with companies that buy cheap Chinese centric rotors, then cut fancy holes and slots in them, and sell them as their own brand. I have seen cases where they drill right through the part of the casting that holds both sides togethor, which leads to cracks.

I won't be running any hard road course, I'm more of a visual type and I was getting so pissed at all the brake dust! Having to clean the wheels after every time I drove the car. I think the rooters just add another little touch to make my car different from the rest.

A few more mods if I can find the right things, looking at a complete exhaust system with headers and the A pillar gauge set.

Luckily with the ZL1, all you need is ceramic pads, and with the stock rotors, brake dust goes way down.

UPS truck made a stop last night! Received lower door kick plates, they are bullet looking with carbon fiber inserts, front lower splitter protection strips, polished cup holder plate. I will get the parts installed later today and take some pics. If the weather cooperates after the snow tomorrow, I'm planning on getting the XPel clear bra installed this Friday. Temperatures are supposed to turn into the 40-50 range throughout the wee. Maybe spring will finally arrive!

Looking good. I ordered mats, center console, valve stem covers, license plate frame. I think I'm done. Going to remove the "camaro" script next. Maybe do a black Chevrolet emblem....the gold just doesn't look right on Blue Ray Metallic.

Parts installed

Picked up my car poster showing all the options with a nice picture, it came out really nice. Also got the parts installed I received last night. It has started to snow again, will it ever end?
