So had a bit of a mix up with the shop and the car being delivered, will be getting it tomorrow at around 4PM so will post up more pics!!! Here are some teasers we also filled the bumper with fiberglass on some areas to make it more sturdy and to keep it up right and not so flimsy

Must be nice to have money lol. You should plastidip that bowtie black! And just curious but will pulling the fuse on a 2SS with single exhaust do anything? Or does it only do something on dual mode exhaust? I have Borla ATAK Catback.

Haha just gotta work hard for what you want man! Not saying you don't, but I worked my butt off haha, it's only on the NPP dual exhaust, it's the flap in the outer exhaust tip that allows it to stay open permanently when you do the fuse pull

Yes that yellowish glue looking stuff is the fiberglass that gets really hard and allows the bumper to not look flimsy and rather stay up straight

Awesome car man!! Loving that new front end. Seriously gave me some great ideas.
By far my favorite build thread to date!! I would love to find out more about that vinyl wrap, if it's available in my area.
Definitely supercharging mine eventually, you should also think about camming it!

Congrats on the new ride and such an awesome build!!

Thanks man that's some awesome words to hear I'm sure there is a shop that will do vinyl wrap near your area there are many places I just got my car and will post pics of the bumper

Supercharger is a must and I recommend a Magnuson I want to get it cammed, but stupid California smog law :( it sucks!

Here it is!! The bumper was very flimsy so like I said they used fiberglass to hold it up better and to be honest with you it was a smart idea! Looks so much better! I love the bumper will post night time pics as well






Here is a pic of the bumper matching the ZL1 rockers and it is pretty even and it looks awesome!!

Looks pretty sweet man! I bet you can't stop staring at it in your driveway, just like I did so many times...lol
Yeah, with the bumper being so big and unstable similar to the stock bumper, the fiberglass is a pretty good idea. I used expanding foam on the inside of the lower lip on the other bumper install. We also include an aluminum support bracket that mounts under the car that holds the lower lip in place at higher speeds.

Haha trust me I was staring at it the whole time looks so nice!!! Overall tony the bumper is awesome though! I wanted to know if it's possible to put the bottom runner piece from the stock bumper to the rideskinz to be able to know that I am not hitting, or what do you recommend?
