What made you color match the side rockers and not keep them black like the splitter and spoiler? Because the rest are carbon fiber?

Man, I love what you've done! It really makes me miss my VR SS. I also had the TSW Nurburgrings on mine, but you have taken it to another level! Congrats on a great looking ride!

If they did not have a 1le, This is exactly the route I'd want to go. You've set a standard here.

A standard? I don't know about all of that. But I appreciate the complement.

Well I picked these up this weekend from the local dealership.



ZL1 rear splash guards. Hopefully they'll help with all the spray I get all over the rear from what I'm assuming is due to the wider tires. Gonna try to do them sometime this week before I go on leave for Xmas.

After that I plan on removing the "CAMARO" from the fender and shooting the tail lightt bezels victory red to match. Then it's slotted rotors and braided lines and maybe some powder coated calipers. Time will tell.

Taking the CAMARO off is simple, some dental floss and mineral spirits. I'd paint the bezels black, it'll tie in with your spoiler. I've seen them red before & prefer them black. It's a good contrast. Just my 2 cents. You can get the rotors from Grantelli for pretty cheap. I did my calipers with the g2 paint and have no bitches with the way they came out.
Keep it up man, looking good!

Thanks for the info! What I'm worried about was the CAMARO leaving residue on the fender. And I'll check out that caliper paint.
