Youve done it again! I always missed Bad Vibe, was sad to see you leave when it was sold.

Welcome back.

sorry to post again but I just love what you have done to this car,i wouldn't want to copy you but if I had the white ZL1 I would want to do just what you have done,but to keep from copying you to exact,maybe I would do the inferno orange or tangerine where you have the blue,then have the inferno interior,car looks GREAT!

OUTLETS

I was asked about the setup for the outlets I had installed in the car. Here are some pics to help you figure out how the setup is.

Here is where I have two outlets. Center dash, passenger side


In the trunk is the power inverter, mounted in the spare tire area


I had it wired to only work when the ignition is on. This way I dont forget its on and actually wear down the battery. I have the switch mounted under the drivers dash, right of the steering wheel next to the center counsol. It it mounted to where you cannot see it all...but reachable for me while driving. Simple Dimple.

What a great looking ZL1 man. So when you got the wheels powder coated the second time, did you just say Summit White Powder coat, and then all was good?

Also, what is the advantage of the powder coating over paint? Or is just aesthetics?

Again, congrats on COTW and great job.

I dont believe the first shop I went to powdercoated them like they claimed...because the UV was yellowing the wheels. so I went to a shop that I have dealt with before www.prokoteindy.com and they did it up right. I said I wanted bright white.

Painting vs powder coating... Powder coating is much stronger than paint.. also, it is extremely easy to maintain. I just wipe them down after going thru the car wash....and yes, I drive this car thru the car wash (everytime).
