  • Mods are all complete...for now :-)

    The last part of my planned mod puzzle came in (high wing in Carbon Flash) and I have finished all my mods...for now. I'm sure someone will release something that I have to have on my car, so I never say I am fully done LOL.

    I ordered the high wing from Chevrolet accessories website on Jan 31st and it arrived at the dealer Feb 2nd, that is a pretty quick turnaround and I was happy that I was able to get one (it was pulled from my order back in late July 2020 and I had been searching ever since. I kept missing them when they came up as available and to be honest I wasn't looking or keeping track very hard.) Me and a bunch of buddies installed it on Feb 5th and was easier that I thought it was going to be (we used RearWheelDrive's video as our guide). The most time consuming part was removing the z51 spoiler and the 3m VHT tape. I am really happy with how the car turned out and can now just enjoy driving and taking pictures whenever I can.

    Thanks to all and this forum for making it so much easier to find items (mods), seeing and reading others experiences with mods and their cars and just a generally well thought out forum (what an outstanding group of individuals we have here).

    I took a couple of pictures at a local park and even chatted for a bit with a couple and their fun mod'd out golf cart:

              You got the right color! I have many of the accessories you have, but I'm not a fan of spoilers, so I won't add that, like the car without it. Now get out there and blow em off the road.

                  Thank you! Looking forward to seeing what you have done, I know you had some good ones planned 😀. Most of the engine bay lighting stuff I bought well before the car arrived, but I kept forgetting about it. The side skirts and splitter were never on my original list, but after seeing them in person I just had to have them (cue evil laughter LOL).
