Very nice. Are those rear splash guards custom or pre-made?

I saw them available aftermarket in black recently. Wanna say it was RPI's site but not sure. The price was ridiculous tho. Very happy I did mine myself.

One bezel has a few bubbles. Another looks like it could use another layer. I'm fearful about adding another layer. Maybe I didn't let the dip dry the first time but additional layers would cover smoothly and I had to start over.

This was still with the dip? Or paint? I had some rain blow in through the garage window while I shot my second coat, but a little wet-sanding and another coat and all was well.

I am an HP whore. LOL. This is a stock run so to speak. I do have a CAI on it but no tune. Factory tune.

Goodies recently did a Kenne Bell supercharger on an SS and it turned 580hp at the wheel. Hmmmm.....

Nice numbers! These TPW 11/12 cars seem to be a mean bunch! I need to dyno mine to see if he's up to snuff lol. I swear the car feels faster than my 11' did with headers and tune.

I know. Right? It's really neat. We need Lio to go back stock and retest.

Why does your car look so dirty? lol

I just washed mine this afternoon. Started raining so I had to pull it into the garage and blow dry there. I think tomorrow I'll clay/polish/seal it for the first time.
I was planning on starting the tach/speedo lighting project, but I think I need a better tool than a flathead wrapped in electrical tape to remove the bezel. Felt like I was going to break or scratch it if I continued, so I gave up for now.

On a different note, what do you guys think of the Z28 reveal? I think it looks pretty sweet except for the rear lights (and the new SS rear lights are god-awful IMO). Definitely sounds like a killer on the track, but I doubt it'd be something I'd enjoy just cruising around in like the 1LE. All told, I think I made the right choice for me...I like my creature comforts the Z sounds like something that should only be on the track. I'm happy they brought it back, but it sounds more like the true "2% car"
