Hmmmmm.........LOL

Once the car is available from GM I am certain you will be able to get the fender moldings (flares) and work them into your ground effects without having to change over to the newer front & rear nose & tail. I plan on buying a set when they become available for my car. I am also going to swap out my GM Rockers skirts for the ZL1 because I damaged mine and the only way I can get them is to buy the entire GM Kit.
I can't wait for the Z/28 to come out. That is going to be one sick car!!

Thanks guys, In all honest, incorperating the Pfadt components has been a huge motivating factor to take the car to the next level. I have said it before and will say it again, those pieces are a work of egineering art! Thanks again for all your guys before and after!

We also re spray the floor pan to cover the areas I couldn't do on our two post lift. Thought we would be finished today but Carlos "painter" received an emergency call and had to leave. He has gone the extra mile to get the car done. I can't say how much we appreciate his and his team hard work!

The carbon really pops with the white. We are so glad we decided to stay true to our theme and keep the color factory white! Pearl would have definitely veering from the goal.

  • cut and polish the doors
  • cut and polish both front fenders
  • Cut and polish rockers
  • cut and polish front bumper
  • cut and polish rear bumper
  • cut and polish front bumper
  • install mirrors and door handles
  • align doors to fenders
  • align door windows
  • install rockers
  • install rear bumper
  • install rear spoiler
  • install rear diffuser
  • install front bumper
  • install front splitter
  • install windows
And this is just the beginning!

Usually I prefer the little gap on the rockers unpainted but it looks good in white here! Must be the CF

Nathan and Justin, I wish I could be there to lend a hand with assembly or whatever you need. After SEMA you need to take the car on a nationwide tour!

Thanks guys for all the props.

Justin did the cut outs on one half of the hood and then made templates to make sure both sides were symmetrical.

Wow that trunk panel looks so good. I wish I was going to SEMA this year so I could see this thing in person. I go every other year and it is my off year :-(
