nice, the only thing is that i like the blue calibers on the zr1. I think it goes well with the emblem color on the hood / bumper and it will give you a little break from the red.

Definitely do the Museum Delivery! Also, add in the Engine Build Experience - amazing day at the plant and worth every penny!

They donít offer the engine build experience anymore. I would do that for sure.

Default That is pretty much my build as well

I would keep the blue calipers and have the mirrors painted. Iím currently a dodge boy and I have to offload my crossfire, challenger hellcat, and ram srt-10 before I can try and get my hands on the zr-1. It is all about power, weight, and that manual gearbox!

That is really too bad. It is quite an experience.

My wife and I did the museum delivery and it was a blast. We took our time and spent most of the day there. Our delivery rep John Whitt was incredibly knowledgeable and really nice. Learned a lot about the car and got a behind the scenes tour of the Museum. The drive out of the Museum was awesome - the staff all lines up and applauds as you are driven out. Never had a car delivery experience like that before!

My opinion is complete opposite. Do the red calipers as they look great with the black wheels and the red matches your interior.

Looks good to me. You can actually get the Battery Protection (Trickle Charger) cheaper with an aftermarket purchase. This one does have the C7 Crossed Flags on it though.

Kept the red calipers

Did not do museum delivery - been there a bunch of times. My work schedule is so crazy - wouldnít want to be in a jam when it is ready.

Wish I could have done the engine assembly.

Ordered it today.

Status 2000.

Thanks,
D.

After they get scrapped up I’ll paint them. ;-)

i tried red seatbelts - it would not let me add them to adrenaline red.

Thanks,

The red seatbelts are a shade different from the adrenaline red interior, but chevrolet.com lets you build it that way. The ordering system may not... Interesting.
I think there are aftermarket options for carbon fiber mirror covers.

Just checked with the Chevy chat line.

Kay could not tell me the status code but the order had been accepted.

Targe production week: May 6th

Pretty cool,
