:cool:

A twinkle in my eye because they don't start building them for a few more weeks and I really don't want the first one they build. I think we let them practice building for 60 or 90 days.

Can you ask your painter how long I should wait before I seal/wax the fascia?

Thanks again. Please let Maureen and Joe know I really appreciate it.

When I want GM parts I go to Maureen and Becky at Rodgers Chevrolet... They are Awesome. They take care of Camaro5 members and I've never had a single problem with anything I've ordered from them.

So, since my SS front fascia was crunched by someone backing in to me I went to Maureen and Becky to see if the insurance claim would be close to what a ZL1 front fascia would cost. And here is the result. Not only did they paint it before they sent it they trimmed the fascia so that the grooves line up to the SS hood cowl and it came out damn near perfect...

Thanks very much ladies. I couldn't be happier. I like it more than I thought I would.

:D

Here are the latest pics now that the car is clean.

I think it looks better without the SS emblem.

Looks really good!:thumbup: Im thinking of doing the same with mine along with the ZL1 hood. How hard was it to install?

Stop with the thread jacking already. If you are not here to help educate GTAHVIT you shouldn't be here :rolleyes: Besides, GTAHVIT didn't install it. Tran was going to do it, but Mrs. GTAHVIT didn't think he could so she hired a shop to do the work. Where is Mrs. GTAHVIT? I want to ask her to have a chat with Tran about GTAHVIT :iono: :facepalm: :help:

Don't mind the ruckus... there is a build thread in here I promise... somewhere.

We used a lift so that helped get to the bolts behind the fenders. The ZL1 fascia needs to be assembled a bit... the lights, bezels, lower grille and splitter. There is some extra bracing for the bottom of the splitter to keep it rigid. And the harness..

I did go to a shop that had done one before so we didn't have to waste a bunch of time figuring out all the parts and pieces.

But all in all it was pretty easy. It's a bit of a jigsaw puzzle but pretty straight forward install.

You are. That nice jacket with the straps isn't the kind you wear to a wedding. And those padded walls have deeper meaning... :bellyroll: Oh, and say hi to Mrs. Tran. :D

In the Navy the Master Chief runs everything. The officers think they are running things, but we all know it is the Master Chief in Charge. In that respect it is a lot like C5 where Tran is supposed to be in charge, but the Master Chief is GTAHVIT. Well not really like C5 because the Admiral and Master Chief are one in the same and it is Mrs. GTAHVIT that is really in charge :thumbup:
