Even though it's AGM and tough to see, I also decided to put the black gill slits on (hard to see in the pic). Finally, and this one I was really hesitant about because of the color, I added the white letters on the tires (put on Michelin Pilot Super Sports, 305 front 325 rear, hence the "MICHELIN" lettering). I decided I didn't want to put letters on the top and bottom of the same tire, I thought that was too much (there is a pic in the Dodge Hellcat forum of a Green Hellcat parked next to a White Z/28....the Z/28 had white letters on only one side of the tire which I thought looked great so I essentially copied it). These are the actual TredWear rubber letters put on one by one so once they are on they will NEVER come off. All of these are obviously a matter of personal taste (some might think it looks too much like a NASCAR?). Anyhow, to me the car is now "complete".....just can't say enough how badass this thing is!
Looks great ! ....love the tires too !

Brey Krause Harness Bar - I got from OG Racing - free shipping - $626 - easy install into OEM seat belt bolt locations.

Schroth 4 pt. DOT and FIA approved harness - from Sube Sports - $335 - nice thing is DOT makes these belts street legal. If you get these be sure you ask for lap belts to come with clip on ends (they don't come this way, but can be ordered this way at no extra cost). That way you can clip onto the Brey Krause hook up locations.

Several threads on this set up on Z/28 forum for more details.

Like I said, you have literally about 5 seconds after they are on the tire to place it properly and then they are stuck forever!

Best pic I have of the solar wing. Just my personal preference, but I really like how it makes the roof flow into the rear of the car.
Thanks! I really like the look of both mods you did. Thanks for the information and additional pics.

Is the bottom edge of your fender flares flush with the edge of the fender or are they a little lower than the edge of the fender?

Thank you!

And by splash guards do you mean the plastic pieces to keep rocks from chipping the paint? I put some clear track tape on the back where most of the damage would happen, so I don't think I will be needing them. And luckily the previous owner had the whole front of the car covered with a clear bra (Xpel I think) so I'm covered there

More PPF

I too pulled the pin on some Xpel PPF after my wheel arches started chipping to white.I took this pic with my phone in Battersea Park,London.The film really makes your paint look a mile deep,when actually GM paint on our Z28s' leaves something to be desired.
Lovely Moreno M'sports, C/F rear spoiler added and the NOWEEDS electric exhaust cut outs let London know i'm visiting.
