Instead of overloading this forum page with pictures, I decided to create a Flickr page just for my camaro pics.

Z/28 Belly Pan Installation

The leading edge of the pan has threads for 3 bolts - I trimmed the fascia (circled in the picture) and drilled 3 holes to make use of those 3 bolts.

Locations of the installed caged nuts are shown (red arrows in picture).

Also trimmed the rubber deflector (picture below), and used a piece between the fascia and the 3 leading bolts.

Z/28 belly pan: 23459995
ZL1 belly pan: 23188146
Caged nuts (need 11): 11513599
Bolts (need 14): M6x1x23 (got mine from a local NAPA)

Tow Hook Receivers

I got the kit from ZL1 Addons so I could use the OEM removable panel on the front lower grill (pics below) and a hidden location on the back of the car behind the license plate (didn't take pics for some reason).

Both the front and rear tow hook receivers are hidden until I need them for track days. I plan to get Rennline hooks eventually.

Super jelly of your ride. I don't mind not having a 1LE because I can always add things on, but I do wish I had the RS headlights without having to pay over $1k for a set. Your car is crazy clean though!

Man, yourncar looks sweet! That ZL1 diffuser makes a huge difference. Does the diffuser include the metal surroundings around the exhaust tips? What are the parts needed to install thee diffuser?

Thanks!

Yes, the metal pieces come with the diffuser. I ordered mine from Maureen at Rodgers Chevy, and she sent everything I needed for installation (I don't have a list).

Penskes installed! Right now I have 400 lb front and 750 lb rear coils - considering a heavier coil on the front at Pete's recommendation, but will probably get some track time in before making a change.

I'm in the process of getting these setup correctly to get the most out of them. Justin Moreno and our contact at Penske have been very responsive and helpful. The Moreno camber/caster plates are also installed.

Thanks again Justin!

A couple of JPSS goodies already installed, and a couple more on the way! I ended up with 6.8* caster with the lock plates, and the radius arm bushings are a perfect OEM-like fit with a noticeable improvement in steering feel and responsiveness.

Pete has been great to work with and very accommodating of my MANY questions - I look forward to seeing what he comes out with next. Seriously considering those SAI lock plates...
