Pics of my 1LE

Hey Everyone -

So here's some pics of my 1LE that was delivered a week ago. I did some mods - a plasti-dipped ZL1 spoiler, ZL1 side skirts from Gary's Customs (he did the bezels, rear bowtie, and black Camaro logo as well), Heritage grille, fin blackouts, and a new set of 305s for the rear. If you were reading one of the other threads, I had a 1LE logo (like the prototype) applied to both skirts, unfortunately they didn't stick long and I'm getting a new set which will have good adhesive promoter applied. I'm going for the Prototype/Berger look - hash stripes, front and back fascia blackouts may be next A full tint job is scheduled for tomorrow. I loved my 2011 SGM 2SS - this car certainly steps it up a notch though and is very much "badder asserer"

Really like what you've done. The spoiler is great. What'd that run you?

Wow thanks for posting the pics. I have been looking for a black ZL1 spoiler on a car like that to see how it would look. I know the 1LE comes with a black SS spoiler but with the ZL1 spoiler being larger in surface area I didn't know if it would be too much being all black like that.

Your car looks awesome. Almost makes me want to trade my Synergy Green SS in for a red one. Then I would have a matching pair color wise (2002 SS and a 2013 SS both in red).

Nice job on the cosmetic upgrades!!

I bought it from GM Parts Direct for 2 hun an change. It was a light-gray plastic so last Saturday it was hanging from my garage ceiling and has 7-8 coats of Plasti-dip. I removed the 3rd brake light beforehand. If only the eBay guy with the $170 painted spoiler would do matte black -

Thanks bud! It's funny - many of my friends thought I was crazy for trading in the "Green Machine". After 2 years, all of that attention due to the color got repetitive. I was at the dealer today and saw my SGM drive off (I told them they could sell it in an instant!). If you have the means, you should give a 1LE a test drive. And get the NPP exhaust. Holy smokes it sounds good -

Love the mods. Hadn't really thought about the ZL1 spoiler before but I like the looks on your car. Got a shot straight on of the back?

Car looks great. Are you keeping the 285 you took off or selling them?

Thanks! I'll be taking a shot here pretty soon - up high or down low?

I was planning on keeping them - either I'll need a new set all around in 12K miles or I'll find out I'm so good at the track that the 285s on the rear make all the difference. If I was a betting man - I'd go with the first one PM me and we can talk -

From Gary's Customs - I'm getting a new set of logos that I will apply with stickier stuff - here's what they will look like:

Straight on from the back would be great. High or low or both, can't argue with more pics are better.

As requested - here's straight shots of the rear. One additional to show the new tint on the back and side windows

Very nice. I appreciate the additional pics. I was looking at pics of other cars with that spoiler but they are all painted to match. I like the looks; it may make the list. For now, I've got a black/red bowtie coming (slightly different paint scheme than yours), ZL1 rockers and additional Camaro nameplates for the front fenders to plasti-dip.

Great looking car!

Looking at the pics again, the pic straight on from the back up high, it looks like there's some holes that were left by the old spoiler. Are there any new holes that need to be drilled and old holes that need to be filled?

There's 3 holes left by the old spoiler - I just used panel plugs from my local auto parts store, ran about 3 bucks. Others have had the deck filled and painted - I'm happy with this config as it will let me revert to stock if I ever think it's necessary. On the factory ZL1 spoiler, you need to remove 2 bolts and 2 placement studs (leaving 4 bolts) and you're good to go. This way you don't modify the rear trunklid. Also to prevent modification I removed the entire brake-light assembly prior to coating it - if I didn't I would need to drill another hole.
