You would think it would be available since so many Heritage Grills are out there now. The bowtie looks exactly the same. I'll have to check that too as I still have the original grill from my first car.

I am sure that is just an adapter to use the stock bowtie on the heritage grill, it probably just snaps into it just like it does on the standard grill...
I think if mine ever gets loose I may buy a factory mount, But for now I will just keep mine the way it is...

I am so happy to see people painting the IP stripes on, when they were removed as replica package content. I was very unhappy to say the least. They were my favorite part of the package, and were approved all the way up to the very end.

Way to take matters into your own hands!

Agree for sure. The dash stripes were my number one interior accent. Seems like such a small thing to keep for such big impact, but I'm sure there were factors I'm unaware of. I didn't want to even show the car until I got them on. It's the first thing people notice inside.

Also getting rid of that pesky TM too...

Thanks for your input to this car... you all really knocked it out of the park with the quality of the stripes and the fact they wrap over all the edges.

Thanks again!...

Congratulations on the purchase... Although the stripes are not my cup of tea, I am sure it's rarity will make it very desirable...

BTW if you want to keep it's value up just use Vinyl for the interior stripes and keep the mods to only things you can return to stock. If these go like the old pace car Camaros have you best keep them as close to stock as possible...

I did the interior stripes exactly like the real pace car. They are painted on. That piece is just like any other IOM interior part and can be easily replaced, but I think it will be one thing that remains.

I will always have the stock parts... but do plan to have some fun w/ a couple mods...

It may be exactly like the pace car but it is not as the pace car replicas were equipped from the factory.. I know it is a minor detail, but it is still not stock as it left the factory..None of the pace car replicas have ever been exactly like the real pace car, and mods of any kind are something the future collector will look at... just stating fact is all....

Actually easier to reverse than it was to paint. Quick sand and clear or like I said a new strip is easy to get.

What I'm really worried about is the polished Maggie I'm going to put on... if the Z-28 doesn't hurry up and get here...

Bone Stock Numbers - Track & Dyno

Got my baseline numbers done....

13.85 and 101.5 at the track a couple weeks ago... 2.15 60' not good work.
.........................-DA corrected to 13.66 at 103

Lane 2 is my son-in-law and his 2006 Vette

337-hp /335-tq stock dyno numbers

Pretty happy with the stock numbers as my last car was 14.0 sec and 325 hp. Will see how it goes after LTs and a few other goodies...

Won "Best in Class"....

Had a great time today at the car show in Coldspring TX near Lake Livingston... Suprised the heck out of me that I actually won something with the number of cars there. The class was 1990 and newer...
