sswiss Build Thread

I did not think I would have to start a build thread for my car, but here I am a bit more than a year after I purchased my Car and I have done all kinds of things to my car already. Some good some not so much

New Fog Lights

After that little set back I figured I had to get right back on the horse and continue with the mods

Me neither. The bumper is at the body shop at the moment for a new coat of AGM and the remaining parts I needed are on order with the dealership. If everything works out perfectly I should get all the bits and pieces back by Friday so that I can spend the weekend putting it all back together.

Painting the ZL1 Bumper

I just stopped by the GM Body Shop and they have already completed the Cowl line adjustment as well as put down an isolator layer. The color will go down today or tomorrow and I can pick it up on Friday.
