So everybody asking for a good front shot....to see what we did on the ZL1 Fascia.

Well, here should be a better shot.

Painted the entire fascia, DRL/Fog Trim pieces, and lower extension opening. Left the grill slats the argent black to make it appear to be a true insert.

Painted the leading edges of the ZL1 Grille to tie in the Silver from the side stripes. Don't know if I LOVE it yet, but definitely not many like it and I like breaking up all the black with the Silver and then the JSBM Bowtie up front just like we got on the back.

Had Roger help us out to cap off the grille with a Southwest Speed SS one of a kind emblem as not to infringe on the ZL1 purists.

Also including a side shot to see the stance of how it sits now compared to how it did with the GFX front splitter.

Hope you guys like it and more to come....

Thank god...... you painted the whole fascia. I am REALLY not a fan of the stock plastic look that some maintain when they get the ZL1 bumper. You did it right man, and the fully painted fascia makes it look classy, expensive, and aggressive.

Right on man. Thank you again. Agreed, I really like the fact that I changed it, but I kept it really close to what it was in as it's still all painted. I did the same thing on the SS Fascia, Heritage Grille and GFX Piece. I think that it looks so much better and was almost sad that it's on a Black car still.

On the cars that aren't black....I've only seen it twice. On an ABM car and RY car and both were so much sicker and looked wicked better so....easy choice.

Perhaps I'll paint the whole car over the Winter so that it'l actually stand out more.....who knows.

Thanks again sir....really appreciate all the comments from folks who've been t the top of the mountain already!

Thanks alot Paul. Been workin away on it lately. Finally getting a chance to square up a couple projects on her.

Mentally preparing for whether or not the car gets painted over the Winter. This scheme is growing on us locally and we've had a lot more folks say they love it so....

Got the ZL1 harness squared away in her, installed some new grill lighting to match the rest of the lighting, reinstalled the Ghosted Sidemarkers, put an Ultragage in it a long while back but have finally gotten the chance to play with it for a few miles and really dig it. Kinda nice and clean. Easy to remove if one ever wanted too.

Gettin there one day!

Thanks y'all!
Ivan
