13 Attachment(s)
Here is my 2013 Zl1 convertible wide body kit build so far. here are pics from before mid and after , cars project is not yet completed but the kit is I just received it out of the body shop 2 weeks ago and still have more I want to add to it...
fyi drivetrain is stock as of now but will modify April or May hopefully.

just sharing my build any questions just ask thanks

and please don't leave comments or post if your going to down talk or being a jerk about my build . you have your build and your cars and I have mine and my choices so if its rude keep it to your self .

if you have any suggestions towards the build I don't mind taking ideas


Z/28Dan 01-18-2017 05:04 PM

Looks cool. I hope I'm not being a jerk by saying this, but I don't think that lower grill looks finished. Is that temporary? It looks out of place on the front.

Keep posting pics!

James200157 01-18-2017 05:27 PM

What do you mean by temporary and doesnt look right?and no your not being rude ,i ment people that are down talking what ive done ,ur just pointing out stuff

James200157 01-18-2017 05:28 PM

Your talking about the middle metal mesh grill right ?and thats what suppost to me there..

flipstyledsm22 01-23-2017 10:10 AM

I agree, the metal mesh has got to go... that, or paint it black. It makes it look cheap for some reason.

What are your plans for finished product? More carbon fiber accents would help with the details... also, a nice candy finish would make the build look fantastic. What are the wheel/tire sizes?

James200157 01-23-2017 06:38 PM

Front 24x10 with 275/35r24
Rear 24x14 with 405/25r24
Abd yeah ill paint thwn black i think its better black also umm im going to add a carbon fiber spoiler gt apr wing, umm i have a carbon fiber trunk but it only fits the coupe not convertables ,and right now the paint jobs matte hot rod flat black but i do want to repaint it somthing better ljke royal blue but im taking suggestions......
Thanks for your opinions

Mike14bumblebee 01-23-2017 09:11 PM

:thumb: looks pretty cool. post more pics from different angles. (rear end lol). i also agree, the mesh stands out too much, paint it black

flipstyledsm22 01-25-2017 08:53 AM

405 in the rear! Holy fat tire batman!

James200157 01-25-2017 10:20 AM

Mike14bumblebee 01-30-2017 12:11 AM

Need to see from further back but I think u nailed it. Much better in black

James200157 01-30-2017 08:10 AM

Thanks guys ,im waiting either at the end of February or in March I am getting a spoiler for the car not sure if I want to do APR gt250 or gtc200 or gtc300? If yall look them up on apr performance let me know was model you think?

James200157 01-30-2017 08:11 AM

Ill take more pics n post after work today

flipstyledsm22 01-30-2017 09:15 AM

The blacked out grill transforms the look by 100%!!!

I like the APR GTC-300. I really think the carbon fiber will help in the finished details of your build.

Still would like to see a rear shot of those fatties!

James200157 01-30-2017 09:18 AM

Yeah i think the wing would help finish the look ,and ill take that pic today of the rear tires , it looks so mich better inperson then in pictures ,like total difference

Here are pics of the rear tires 405/25r24 and better pics of the grill......

James200157 01-30-2017 07:27 PM

Yeah it doesnt look like a 405 when its on the car but when u take the wheel off and stand by the wheel and look at it you be like holly shit.....

flipstyledsm22 01-31-2017 09:20 AM

You can tell they are really wide! Probably a picture from further away, or a side-by-side picture of you parked next to a C7 Z06!

SSEssence 01-31-2017 09:43 AM

that rear tire size! definitely unique and changes the whole look!

SynergyGreenSS 01-31-2017 01:24 PM

What'd ya do with the original front fascia!?

James200157 02-08-2017 10:50 AM

Its gone got trashed a while back

Dmpsix 02-08-2017 02:36 PM

That makes me sad, you could've sold that here easily! :(

Do you have any of the other parts laying around? Side skirts, spoiler, rear diffuser, etc?

James200157 02-08-2017 02:39 PM

I have 1 side skirt, and the hood and both front fenders but they have hail damage onthem ,i plan on fixing the hood here soon and selling it ,the rear bumber is trash had to cut in to it and use parts off it sorry,

01pewterz28 02-27-2017 11:06 AM

Good luck with your project :thumbsup:

Here are some pics

MyLocalDJ 03-29-2017 06:36 AM

That really looks badass!!! Not sure I dig the spoiler but all the rest looks great! Spoiler is a little large for my taste but it isn't about my taste, its about what you like. You did one hell of a job there dude!

Like your choice of hood too! I think I have seen one of those before. :)

flipstyledsm22 03-29-2017 01:31 PM

I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice, but from the looks of it, it is looking much larger all around. Kind of reminds me of a body builder standing next to a fit person.


Dmpsix 03-31-2017 05:36 PM

You look tiny in that car!!!

Lookin' good though, who did the body work? You guys did? That is some outstanding bodywork seriously.
