And now we move to the interior folks, replaced my factory plastic trim panels and door panels with ABL door panels and painted dash trim kit. Plus added 4 pack guages and painted them white also.. purchased the 2LT leather steering wheel with red stitching and painted it white.

When I was doing some research on hood inserts, i came across the ACS T10 hood insert with the see thru glass. Looks just like ZR1 hood insert so i wanted to be different and went that route.

Hey thx man, you have a beauty.. the trick to getting the lines sharp is wide blue tape not the thinner tape, u find it to be more sticky to the car and thick spray of plastic dip. When i did the spears I used the can but when I did the black spray on the hood to give a ZL1 type feel of just a black covered area I used the spray gun I bought from home depot.
