Recent ZL1 bumper conversion

Recently decided it was time for some big changes on my camaro, started with getting bbk long tube headers, pdaft lowering springs, and a vmax throttle body from my buddy Lars. However with the help of Aaron from Autosource i made the purchase of the ZL1 bumper. After waiting a week for paint i got it today and after a couple hours of work its done!! what do you guys think of the result?!

That looks great, do you have any other pics? How did you like the quality of the auto source bumper?

How much did the total conversion cost on the ZL1 bumper? I'm thinking of doing the same.

Quality is great, stronger then OEM. lines up great and looks great! bumper was 650$ and paint was 180$ so around 850$. i did install myself but i recommend professional install.

Any reason you recommend professional install? I've taken the front bumper off numerous times. Is it any harder than that?

I took my stock one off in about 30 minutes but then transferring the fogs and absorber and grille over took a while, then to fit it on took a while too. Very happy with the final result tho!

With the BBK Longtubes high flow cats and throttle body and an aggressive hypertech tune, yes the difference was huge for me. Looking to get zl1 sideskirts next !
