Which ones? The fronts I made myself. The rears are the stock ZL1 part.

ZL1 rear guards:

SHIELD,RR BPR FASCIA SPH - RH 22895336
SHIELD,RR BPR FASCIA SPH - LH 22895337

Very easy install. Takes about 10 minutes.

I was having major issues trying to get images to upload. I kept getting a "missing security token" error which no one seems to know about. I even resized a few pics to make them much smaller and was still having issues.

I need to get some more pics, but I have a few after the tint. I will try again tonight or tomorrow morning.

So here are a few resized. I've been wanting to get the car cleaned up and get some more pics, but the weather isn't cooperating.

For those asking about USB drives. I'm using this mini 32GB model: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It hardly sticks out at all.

Looks great! But maybe its just the angle but you're car looks like it needs a set of lowering springs

It's at stock height. I've considered it, but it's low on my list of things to do.

Car was already enroute to the dealer. NPP wasn't a deal breaker for me, and I got the car much quicker.

Wow, haven't done anything in awhile..almost couldn't find my journal.

In any case, I've been fighting the flu all week and as it was a fairly nice day outside, I felt the need to get out of the house and finally finish a few projects.

First up was the JDP clutch reservoir kit that has been sitting on my shelf. I've kept putting it off, and finally decided to get it over with.

Before, I'm sure you all know what this looks like:

And after:
Name:  brake reservoir after r.jpg
Views: 58
Size:  121.4 KB
Name:  brake reservoir after side r.jpg
Views: 61
Size:  105.5 KB

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Not a lot of room to work, but manageable. The hardest part for me was getting the hose off of the firewall connection. Everything else is pretty straigt forward. I should have done this much sooner.

Also, to give myself more room to install the clutch reservoir, I removed the strut tower brace as I had plans for that as well.

I was initially planning to completely polish the entire piece. But I changed my mind simply because I've been removing all of the chrome from the car. So no reason to then add something completely shiny and chrome like under the hood. I ended up painting the ends satin black and then cleaning and polishing the center.

It still needs some work. It has a couple of places that were scratched/marred from the factory and a simple polish wasn't getting them removed. I need to pick up some new polishing pads for my dremel and then finish it off. But overall, not too bad.

And installed with new stainless allen head bolts:
