Default 1407 Delivered Shadow Gray Metallic Pix

What an awesome color. It all depends on where the light source is and at what angle it is reflecting. Blueish in direct sun light, or silver, light gray, dark gray and close to black again, depending on the reflective angle. The paint is way better than it was on my '14, but it still needs help. Look at the passenger door in the right rear photo and you can see vertical distortions. It is in the clear coat. So the first stop is for a wet sand and buff out. Then the Xpel.

The car is lowered as far as the factory adjustments would take it and realigned (it needed it after coming off the transport). And I had the bicycle reflectors on the side and rear "treated". They still reflect when you shine a light directly on them and the marker lights are visible Also the cups are replaced by SS3's.

What an amazing car with more personality than any Porsche or any other car I ever owned - Save maybe the Mangusta hahahaha. Completely BadAzz and worth the wait.

Perfect, I will be looking for you - I am north and east of the airport. I have yet to see a ZR in Orlando yet.

Awesome Sauce!

I just got a 2018 Centennial Edition Silverado LTZ Z71. Judging from the above pictures the Centennial Blue is the same color. This gives my an interesting idea...

Are you going to stick a supercharger and hood vent on it? Or treat the bicycle reflectors? BTW - they are a PITA to get to

I like the color, it's like Night Race Blue in that it changes in different light. Enjoy your beast!

Repo Pilot, Congrats bro, I'm jealous, SWEET bad *** ZR1 you have there!!!

I am wanting to darken out the front side markers on m 911 Turbo S, what is the best way to have them treated like you mention you had yours done on your new Beast?
