If you get the actual carbon fiber weave overlays they look quite nice and still have the 3d effect and look of actual carbon fiber (versus the flat look of something like hydo-dipped carbon fiber). Unfortunately the options for full replacement carbon fiber pieces for the Camaro is like.. 2 or 3 total pieces, lol. So each piece would have to be a one off and custom made :-/

Nice! First thing I did to my ZL1 was add the ACS rock guards and zl1addons lift pads at around 250 miles.. at 400ish miles I got the full paint correction, PPF (not as extensively as yours, sadly.. I had front end, hood, mirrors, door edges, rear bumper, and quarter panels done, not the doors regretably), and a 5 year ceramic coating (including calipers and wheels).

Seeing these makes me wish I had even more ppf installed! Lol. Reminds me I need to have front lip PPF replaced... big rock nicked a small chunk out of the PPF a few weeks ago :-/

Here is what it looks like...

Where did you buy these covers at? I hate all the silver, would love to have the CF where the adjustable lighting is.

Take a look at my YouTube playlist and then click on the video for the item(s) in question.. On each video I have links to where I bought the piece (and the video shows a quick look at the part so you can see if it would be what you are looking for or not)

PlayList: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...OqyBfEleTeLA8D

Seems whenever I try to direct link to the item(s) in question in the forum the link gets censored out and breaks :-/

Installed some vinyl overlays over the super ugly air bag warning labels on the sun visors. I think I read a post here on the forum somewhere months ago that gave me the idea, ordered the vinyl... and left them sitting in a box for almost half of a year! LOL. Anyways, got them on and they look much nicer than white/yellow warning labels, IMO!



A photo of them both in place in the car...



Did a quick video (sorry for the video spam.. been having rare free time and really trying to knock a bunch of stuff out on the car while I can!! Lol):



Picked them off of this eBay store: https://www.ebay.com/usr/graphicxguy

And this is the exact item I had ordered (selected the ZL1 lettering.. he has other options/lettering as well): https://www.ebay.com/itm/174271333550

Paid $15.99 for the set.

I went to grab something out of my car (door shut on me), and found my passenger side door handle on the inside is peeling. I thought these were real metal and not chrome plated plastic…interesting.

What’s odd is the passenger side of this car is BARELY used. The fiancť likes to drive her Stang everywhere, so we take that.

Seems to be a fairly common issue.. Be careful as once it begins to peel it also begins to get sharp.

I checked the link for the handle and it said not available. Didn't check any updated links and what not. But.. from reading the threads it sounds like a total PITA install even IF you can get just the handle as the handle I guess is somewhere plastic welded in place?
