have you thought about the anvil carbon fiber spoiler?! I believe its a little cheaper and IMO is one of the best look spoilers around!

Yea i definitely want to get Brembo's, just need to find a good deal.

I've considered it, but than i saw the anvil carbonfiber spoiler on someones IBM and it doesn't go to well. If i were to go that route, id get it painted to match.
So im not sure even about getting the carbon fiber zl1 spoiler.

Wow....what a transformation!! Definitely taken to the next level. Really cool to also see what the IBM would have looked like on a Zee.

Thank you for the support and damn the car is looking great!!

I always loved that color in the sun. My Silverado that I just traded in for my 1LE was very similar. Lovely when clean and polished.

Nice looking ride.

Love the IBM. If it was available when i purchased my car i would have gotten it myself.

those detailing pictures look awesome! i am about to do the first full detail on my car. Although i wish i could find a nice shop to do it for me as i am afraid to screw up.

You wont, go the safe route and get an orbital polisher like griots or a PC. Safe enough for a first timer like me. Turned out great but took 2 days
Thanks for the compliment!

Good to hear. I will give it a whirl. I'd just hate to eat up my clear for no reason

I had an "82 and an '86 back in the day. But no, I traded the Silverado for my 1LE.
