'13 ZL1 #1440 Let the build commence

Here is my new addition. She has been named Charlotte and I plan to make her truly a one of a kind.
First some pictures right after I got her cleaned up from the 11 hour trip home.





The wheels are an aftermarket set with snow tires.

How she looks now:


Mods thus far:
Roto Fab CAI, polished
Kooks 1 7/8" LT Headers Catless mid pipes
Elite Engineering Catch Can
Ghosted Oracle Sidemarkers
Xpel Ultimate paint protection
Tint 20% all around, 55% windshield
Blue LED light behind grill


I've never kept a detailed journal of my builds in the past, but I'm going to try really hard with this one to keep it up to date and filled with pictures. Enjoy!

nice ride . How was the weather on the drive back?

Where are you going to put the reg and inspection sticker since the windshield is tinted. did they cut a spot for it or just put it on the tint ?

Just put them on the tint, I wore the glue off of them so that they won't tear the tint off with them when the new registration comes

Looks great!,
Thanks again for recommending me to Leebers automotive tint. Got mine 20% last week and love it!

I think i saw you on 206 south in Hillsborough NJ on Saturday around 1-2pm. If so you might have seen my IOM SS sitting in the parking lot facing the road near amwell. If not maybe it was a different ZL1, looked like NY plates though

Sorry about no recent updates for the ZL-1. I started a ground up custom cafe racer build that has been keeping me extremely busy. Here's the link to the build thread for that if anyone here is also a motorcycle fan.

http://www.customfighters.com/forums...ad.php?t=66444

When I get this project back on the road the ZL-1 will be getting some more attention.
