Default ‘95 ZR1 Build getting Started...

Finally after 2 1/2 years the Z is getting the attention it deserves. I bought the car not running with 105k miles on it with a few years of neglect, dusted it off and sent it to Marc Haibeck for the following upgrades:
- 510 Package porting, long tube headers, alum. flywheel
- 4.10 gears
- Coil-overs all four corners
- Cam covers and valve covers finished in bright red

I’ve since added the following items
- C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes and rotors
- C6 Z06 Black Spyder wheels with Nitto NT05 drag Radials

Build plan:
- Complete disassemble and color change to satin Admiral Blue
- Remove entire interior
- Install new carpet and leather in Red / Black “Grand Sport” theme
- Leather wrapped radio surround and console
- Replace Bose with GPS unit with new speakers, amp and sub
- Replace fiberglass targa with glass top
- Flat bottom original style steering wheel

Here are a few before and after Haibeck pics, we have started tearing it down I’ll try to keep the thread updated.

This car looks looks great! Haibeck's 510 package is a fantastic upgrade.

I'm a little surprised to see the IAT sensor in the air horn. I guess Haibeck doesn't relocate it anymore? He put mine in the front bumper.

Looks great, hard to beat Marc's 510.

He still does. It’s a $90 upgrade, not part of the 510 package.

Didn’t know about IAT sensor relocation.

Haibeck really woke the car up, I’m ready for the rest of the car to be as nice as the engine.

Very nice

Marc's refinishing of the LT5 looks great, and I'm sure it drives as well as it looks

It is a blast to drive, the gears made a huge difference, as well as adding drag radials. Now I’m ready to make the car look as good as the engine.
