Nice! You really make me want to pull the trigger on a rear zr1 spoiler body color. Maybe I will.

Also out of curiosity, what tire sizes do you have on for both front and rears

If your asking me I have 275/35/19 Front 325/25/20 Rear with 5mm spacers on rear to make wheels more flush. The Spoiler is an Extender Zr1 spoiler in Carbon Fiber . I been on a carbon fiber kick lately.

Took it to my folks for Mother's Day. Not bad, considering it sat out in the rain for a few hours yesterday.

Finished up installing Z51 front and rear sway bars and endlinks, DRM shocks (front & rear), new front and rear Z51 brackets and rotors with new pads...and I painted the calipers gloss black. A fair amount of work, but the Quick Jack made it a lot easier. Oh, and I installed the TCU that was modified by CoW. Should be noticeable next time out.

Default Make over!

After several months of work, my project is just about complete. ZR1 Front splitter and side skirts, Front, rear and side emblems changed, rear bumper "Corvette" inserts, side marker and tail lights smoked, eagle eye tail lights installed, new wheel/tire set up, painted roof and rear spoiler, paint matched calipers and XPEL clear bra installed on the whole front end (bumper, hood, front fenders). Enjoy

Got black headlights on order? And of course, I am not referring to those poser C7 "inspired" lights.
