Shit, the way mother nature has been treating this area I doubt any of ours will be either. My baby is still all dusty and covered with bug guts from my vacation to Vegas. Good thing we still have over a week!

Vegas was the shit! By far the best vacation I had ever taken. I got to see a ZL1 pass by me going Eastbound on I-10 on the other side of the freeway which got my nipples all hard just to be bale to see one on the road. I'll tell you guys all about my trip next week.

Hey does anyone know if they started the Wednesday night gatherings at the Fox Plaza again or was it a one time deal last year?

If I remember correctly both the drain and the fill plug were on the driver's side of the diff housing, they are easy to spot they are just a plug that a 3/8 or 1/2 inch ratchet head fits in, I am pretty sure it was a 3/8 though. It's just a round plug with a square hole.

im debating getting a clear bra done. At Extasy tinting they do them, solargard brand. what i like about them is they have a plotter to pre cut the bra especially for the zl1. it has a 5 yr warranty and the price was 595. At Shades and Shadows they use 3M Venture Shield for $680, it has a lifetime warranty but its not pre cut. they use a full sheet and basically use a knife to trim the pieces on the car! that freaks me out, a lot. im leaning towards Extasy, any thoughts?

3M is better vinyl, as far as the pre-cut stuff it seems harder to install and line up right, likely they will be slightly over cutting it and trimming while on the car anyway. Just make sure to try and watch either one and if they do happen to sctatch your car, hold them to repairing it. I would go the 3M route personally, but only if they are a well experienced shop.

I debated for a long time on getting one installed, but I decided that if I do get chips on the front end I could just spend the $600 getting it repainted. I have a few small chips on mine now, but there only noticeable up real close, you cant even see them from 2 or 3 feet away. I actually have more nicks on my hood than the front bumper.

Rubio,

Got my 3M car bra put on my 45th anniversay camaro yesterday. Went to Rigo's Graphics 6932 gateway east 915-591-8676. He orders a precut 3m and installs himself. For $580 he did the whole bumper my mirrors and the door handles. Great customer service and great shop. It's right after the el paso saddle blanket across the highway from cielo vista. Tell am Dave with the 45th camaro sent you.

Anybody getting the clear bra ask about,the back fenders too where the 3 grills are at, when I was looking online I belief it was 30 to 40 dollars extra, lots of little rocks also hit that are, cant see them but with this sand storm we get in el paso and when I wash my car man I hate it

Yeah, that area gets dinged just as much as the front and since it's not plastic the paint chips are very, very noticable there.

I think i would opt for a custom cut rather than the precut.

I put Invisible Shields on my iPhones, and almost every electronic device I own. WHile they are cut specifically for the item, there are always spots where you have some area needing a bit more due to application.
