What did you do to your ZL1 today?

A thread for a quick mention of anything interesting you accomplished involving your ZL1. It's too early in the day for me to be productive...

I haven't picked mine up just yet, but anyday now. I have all kind of goodies that will go on the first day she arrives. New floor mats, blackout tail lights, bowties, back area between the taillights and then off the window tinter's for a 20% coverage then we'll start in the engine compartment

So far I've installed black taillight bezels, a remote hide-a-way license plate, a clear radio screen protector, some ZL1 floor mats yesterday and some matte black side gill stripes but nothing today.:( Still waiting for my mild to wild controller to arrive.

Will you need a tune, or will car run fine with a ported blower and no tune. I'm considering not voiding the warranty on this one, that is why I ask.

...funny you mentioned that about the garage, I find myself making out of the way trips just to do a walk by and gawk at it and wonder in amazement.

Front license plate bracket (no drilling)
Curb Alert (no drilling)
fade to black gill decals (they peel off)
skip shift eliminator (quickly removable harness)

No changes are going on my car that cannot be undone in less than a days time. However, I think it is great everyone else is modifying theirs - it makes the factory original ZL1s harder to find. Let the modifications continue!
