Seems to be ending up that way... I was thinking of doing a lot of the Green SEMA Camaro, but a lot of that ended up on the ZL1 and I don't really want a clone of a ZL1.

But it is starting to look like a Hot Wheels. I doubt I'll put any of their badges on.

Thank you!

I just bought some wheels last night. Planning to go square for sure now. I also pen striped red on the plasti-dip and I really like the look. So now its time to powdercoat them after I save some more money up.

Got my plates on, 1LE diffuser, and new tips with a muffler delete.

Thinking I'm done for a little while... (other than fixing that bumper )

the stripe for the trunk does not work with the stock blade spoiler.

So, I ordered a ZL1 spoiler... Really, I'm not trying to make my SS into a ZL1 but so many of the parts that were used in the Concept car for Hot Wheels ended up on the ZL1...

Your car looks awesome, my tl1 insert is being painted right now, I was also wanting a zl1 spoiler but didn't know if the bolt holes were the same.

Thank you.

Some of the bolts are the same, some are not. You'll end up with three holes that you will need to handle under the LED light. Some people plug them, some fill and paint...

Thanks Slow, nice upgrades by the way!

Still miss my Jeep... If you ever need anything for it I'd recommend Dave at Northridge 4x4

I traded mine in for the Camaro... I was tired of modding it and wanted something I could just have fun driving without spending a ton of money on it...

What was I thinking?

The Jeep wasn't any more to mod than the Camaro, its just that you can mod so much on a Jeep. It is really fun and a lot of it is DIY and fab work. They are a blast to work on. I just thought I wouldn't be modding the Camaro as much as I ended up modding.

I still miss the Jeep.

I got them for Suburban Chevrolet out of Sandy, Oregon. They are eBay but Rodgers Chevy (vendor here) can get them for you too.

They are not cheap, but since they are OEM they are very nice quality compared to my other vinyl.

Thank you - that's what I'm going for... something that could have been OEM.

By the time I'm done should be something like crossing a supercharged 1LE with a green Hot Wheels.
