Nice job op. Looking good so far. I really like how the wheels look.

Yeah, the mesh looks OK to me. No big deal. The finished product looks lean and mean!

Thanks everyone. Hopefully an ADMIN looks at the above post by Georgies and decides it and maybe even he is inappropriate.

I like 'em. They are small compared to the ones that come stock on the Z06 and match perfectly.

I will be buying some sort of Chrome wheels, possibly polished, but I still haven't decided exactly what I want yet. These stock ones do look good in black.

To get back on track... I wired in the back up light. It now works as far as the Alpine is concerned, but there is no picture from the camera. I am hoping it is just a setting in the system. Feels like it is almost there...

Regarding your stereo install - it looks like you added an amp along with the head unit. If so where and how did you mount the amp. I will be doing a full system install soon and am undecided where the amp should go. Thanks!

The amp is a small matched one to the Alpine stereo. I just bumps the power from 25 watts RMS to 45 watts I believe, and it just tucked in back behind the stereo. A larger one could be pretty easily mounted in the glove box to keep it out of site.

eBay magnetic mount purchase that just fits the original or aftermarket "cup holder" hole. It seems to work, but I haven't given it much of a test drive so far.
I love your cell phone mount, that is cool. Also, good attention to detail with the dynamat etc.

I love everything but the steering wheel cover. It looks out of place with such a clean thought out interior setup you've done.

I like it. And thanks to the OP, I now know about WheelSkins.
