New Custom ZL1 bumper - PICS

Well a few of you might know I got into a hit and run a few weeks back. So, I ordered a ZL1 bumper, cut out the light ports and heres the result so far. I still am going to put black mesh where the ports were, on sunday. More pics to follow.

Also heres my DIY thread on cutting out the ports.:

Thanks man, I figured since I always run my Green halos id never use the lights anyways. And its saved me $500 not getting the lights, harnesses, and insert. Also ,the ports are now letting direct cold air onto my long tube CAI.

That turned out real nice. My replacement SS bumper shipped out to me on Tuesday from Gary's. I hope shipping doesn't break it again so I can keep it this time.

Personally, don't care for the upper grille, but it still looks good. I like it.

Ya, I liked the t2 ports better, But the lower grille and splitter on the ZL1 bumper seals the deal for me.

Awesome job, great way to save some money on the install and IMO looks better then having the lights there. All this time and I just now notice that your old bumper was an SS bumper.

Thats true! It would save a ton to not have to get the bezels, lights, harness, etc

Now you just need to finish off the splitter with side skirts and a diffuser
