Installed the rest of the stuff tonight... took the front facia off to make it easy. Figured I could install the Z06 screens in the OEM manner, but I guess you have to drill the lower part of the front bumper openings, because they sure don't use the holes of the coupe/vert shrouds. Anyone know how the Z06 screen is held in in a Z06? My Z06 has the front bumper off of Kevin's (wkmcd) vert and I don't remember what my original was like.... took it off long ago. Ended using the "velcro method" and am glad I did... I can pull them out when needed to fiddle w/ the fogs etc.

I'm in love w/ my air tools... specifically my "stubby" 1/4" drive air ratchet. Last time I did this by hand, tonight it was a breeze using air.


Build sheet was in the bumper bar as expected...



Used the existing foglight srew to mount the ballast and zip-tied the wires nice and neat. Can't belive how cheap HIDs have gotten and how small the ballasts are. Last set I had in my old Specter Werkes C5-R lights was over $300 and the ballast was way bigger



4300K HIDs are great... I don't even need to use the headlights anymore.


The stock foglight lenses have a wonderful cutoff


New diamond cut turn signals, front bumper and brake duct screens and side cove screens...




G'night,

Brian
