I bought mine from Gary's Customs, he is here on he forums, you will need to buy the ZL1 wheel liners, or make new holes in your stock ones, I recommend getting the new wheel liners because they provide more protection from stuff getting under the car and up in the bumper, but they do have goes in the liner for the broad ducts the ZL1 has, I bought those ducts as well. You will need to buy the fog light wiring harness to power the extra fog lights. If you choose to buy the wheel liners you will need to get some square retainer nuts/bolts to mount the wheel liners to the bottom of the bumper, if you buy the bumper, you will also either need to or your old upper grille in it or purchase a new grille(Gary also sells the ZL1 upper grille) Technically the side canards that go in the front of the wheel wheels that come with the conversion are supposed to be riveted onto the bumper, but the screws used to hold the wheel liners will hold the canard on as well if you don't want to buy rivets, you will need to buy new filler molding(the small black strip of plastic on the top of the bumper that fills the gap between the bumper and bottom of hood), or you can take yours off your old bumper, and buy new rivets to reattach it. I also bought a lot of new push pin retainers, because some broke and some were just too loose when reused for my liking. There are also additional wind deflectors for left and right side that you can buy from your dealership as well, as well as the belly pan that will cover the entire under side from the bumper back to transmission, but those are both optional as well. If you buy the bumper pre-painted from Gary it will be shipped to you already assembled, if ordered without paint, I believe you will need to do full assembly.
If you're interested I can see if I can find the part numbers for the extra stuff, as well as some prices(my prices from dealership will differ from yours a little because I get wholesale pricing, but places like gmpartsdirect.com will get you a close pricing, only thing with ordering from there is you have to pay shipping, and a dealer usually is next day or 2 shipping

Finally put my speaker trim rings on.
I'll post a picture tomorrow or later tonight. Not sure how long they will stay on, I think between the door closing, and the bass from music they will fall off.

Glad all the work I've put into the car could be of some help and influence to yours!

Probably one of the most flattering things to hear!

I think saving up for a blower is the next task at hand! Might do ZL1 diffuser and quad tips before though.

Well, I had added nitrous to the car, and immediately took it off 3 days or so after having it because I simply was going to get myself in a lot of trouble with it.

But don't worry, Frostbyte is due for something new!

I've been eyeballing some procharger kits, still want the cam and converter done, but it makes more sense to do a cam after getting boosted.

There are just so many supporting mods needed for getting boost that it's insane.

Also thought about selling the car and moving into a 6th Gen.
