We usually go to Cocula (La cuna del marriachi) and Ojo de Agua Rancho in December so I didnt get to go the carnival. But I'll be going to where my parents are from in Zacatecas this Sepember and back to Jalisco in December. Where exactly in Jalisco is your family from?

Heres what spark plugs look like at 85,100 miles, of course new tr6 is on right...man i have never been so frustrated changing out spark plugs. Took about 2.5hours! Damn kenne bell hoses got in the way. Not sure if others had same issues when changing them out, and its mainly driver side, only 1 spark came out with ease. Others PITA! Oh well added some other things while i was at it

Finished after a bunch of cuts on hands due to PITA location of spark plugs for driver side!

Wait I think I read that wrong, So they do come on with the halos with the automatic feature? and they can be optioned on or off at any moment, right? How has the bumper been holding up? Im waiting on putting mine on in the spring. Also congrats on camaro of the week!

Thanks man. Sorry for confusion but what i meant is this button is separate to when your halos turn on. So you have to manually turn on that smaller light. I just listed the combinations of what you can do by having that as a manual option. As you know the stock daylights come on when lights off and turn off as soon as you have lights on but you can change that once you get a harness. So the button that came with your bumper kit will allow you to choose if want lower light on or off at any given time. But as for the bumper its been holding up pretty good just like my stock bumper. Sucks that these guys only made 13 of these bumpers, one of the best ones looking out there. Its like the golden child of zl1 and ss bumper! You'll love it once that bad boy gets installed. Luckily i get to drive my car almost everyday in sunny california!

Oh alright I see, and yeah I love how it looks on your car, that is crazy they only made 13! I just can't wait to get mine on my 45th haha. when you went to the shop for the installation what exactly did you tell them? Did you just hand them the harness and bumper and get it done or did you reference a manual? Mine didn't come with any installation tips or anything.

They could have so much more business if they had tweeked one or two things but the business owner chose to take the easy way out and not takecare of small issues. Yeah all i did was have it painted and get it installed by someone. Bumper is super easy to install but electrical stuff is not my thing so my installer for that said it was a cake walk install for button harness. Let me know when your ready for install i'll see if i can remember what i saw during install of harness.

Yeah it is a shame how they did buisness. He did go to SEMA with the same bumper we have to promote it right? Also my shipment box was pretty bad. Anyway thanks for the offer, I think I'll get it done by a shop so if something goes wrong I can take it back haha. Would you recommend a custom shop or could the dealership handle the install? Also what did it cost you for installation? I paid 260 for paint already.

He did go and he was going to use my car this yr coming up to showcase other stuff they had in works but it all went dead all of a sudden. Last i heard they are in the scion srs business now. It should only take one hour all together to install since its just removing and installing bumper. Harness is a plug and play for any shop. I would say just have it installed at a local shop that has removed camaro front bumpers and they can easily connect harness. Dealers usually milk the labor hours to get paid more thats why i never take it to a dealer for anything.

ZL1 front bumper UPDATE: Car wouldn't turn on last night, after troubleshooting electrical stuff for 2hrs found out that the ZL1 plug switch was causing car to not even turn on. Gu-rate. I unplugged it from where I routed it to power and its currently off until I figure out why this bastard stopped working (possibly a nic along the power wire). Now car turns on perfectly.

ZL1 Grille & APR Carbon Fiber splitter

So bought a OEM ZL1 Grille and also a APR splitter. It was a pain in the ass getting the old grille off, I knew it was cheap from the get go though. I'll put up a picture later of everything on car, got too dark so no good pictures to take at that time. I made one HUGE mistake I forgot to put back the screws that hold the top portion of lower grille in place. Now I have to take off bumper again to put them on!

I'll be putting an emblempro's product to replace the zl1 on grille.
