Whew lots of posts on updates

So with new QTP installed and demon eyes needed to install a new switch plate. The nos is for my cutouts and thought this would be easier placement than inside my center console. It's on a momentary switch and right at my finger tips. Demon eye switch also added.

Finally got all my lighting back up and running for fest. A little more tweaks coming but turning out great. All controlled with Night Owl

Thanks rjdapilmoto!! The cutouts are amazing!! Just the option to have open or closed is worth every penny.
Will post a sound video here in a bit

Man... I keep on going and going over your build.. I love everything you did to your Camaro!

Very detail oriented, beautiful and good quality mods, that makes sense...I love it!!!

So I would say this is it... its done, mission complete... but could be wrong, because there is always something else , so may I ask whats next?

Sounds awesome, Gary! I will have to hear it in person at the Fest. Man, it's just a few weeks away! Where you staying at? I'll be at the Baymont Inn.

I had a reservation at Baymont Inn but changed over to Comfort Suites when found out Baymont room was smoking room. Comfort is right next door though. Have much to do still prior to fest. Will be good to finally meet everyone!!

That means a lot Goran. Thanks for the nice compliments. I have always wanted the car to look aggressive but clean. Most of the time people have no idea what's on the car unless it's opened up or turned on.

This coming week getting the new hood installed. While I'm down in Houston stoping off at AAC to possibly talk lighting for upcoming sound system and purchased high out out reverse lights. While in Houston having my SLP boost gauge installed.

As for distant future this year or next will start with audio and video type mods. Thought about getting some focal door speakers this weekend but might hold off cause want something custom done.

Later this summer also toying with the idea of getting Gary's dual fender setup instead of the ACS cutouts.

Definitely stay tune

Sweet!

Do you plan on putting the rods on or leaving them off?

After speaking with Sickness and how his is mounted without rods in going to leave them off. In a nut shell bolting the Apr splitter to all 15-20 bolts underneath holding zl1 grill on. This should give it enough support at least I hope so. I don't plan on drag racing and not a daily driver. Sickness bolted his up this way and states extremely solid. Keeping my fingers crossed

I havent counted the amount of bolts but it did have a lot inside the bag. I had a seibon carbon fiber lip on my ss bumper and I put about 10 bolts across the bumper with no tie rods. But then again it was a hard lip that had no flex at at and this one flexes quite a bit. What I might do is put a gopro camera pointing down to lip and see how much it flexes while driving through the wifi feature. If its flexing too much then I'll just pull over and take it off to install rods. I just dont want to put any other part on my car in jeopardy.

I have a Go Pro as well and might not be a bad idea. I really think with all the bolts attached underneath the ZL1 front bumper should be fine. Are you doing speeds in excess of 100 all the time?? Sickeness stated his was really solid once all bolts attached. I have seen guys install with less with no issues. You would think if generating that much downforce two rods held on by tiny screws would not do the job either.

Where did you get the bra? Might not be a bad idea to protect mine on the way from San Antonio. Although my front fascia has lots of nicks already. Doh!!

Got from Ohio speed but call him for discount code. I can't remember it. It's tight fitting with my splitter but conforms we'll and will help with the grime. Took me less than 20 min to install and could now put on and take off less than 5 minutes
