Make sure the wing is solidly bolted on as there are some YouTubes where people put the big wings on and they snapped off and crashed car. Not trying to jinx you just be aware.

I can see a lot of people trying to mod cars to mimick the new ZR1 not understanding the ZR1 big wing is bolted into the frame of the car. Of course big wings have been on cars before the ZR1 but the number will likely grow and people won’t understand the risk of improper installation.

Once you get done then I look forward to my special order request from you.

Looks Great and I like the yellowish tint placed on the headlights as it gives it a menacing look. I would suggest that you wrap the area I mocked up the last picture below to more mimic the Z07R front grille you could use the same wrap or even do in all white how I illustrated which frames it out nicely as well.

Job Well Done! So, on to my little project now, right?.....Right!!! :)

It looks great! I have seen a lot of wrap jobs and this is definitely the best by far! I'm pretty conservative with my own cars in terms of appearance, but I'd be thrilled to drive this one! Far cooler looking than I expected it to be. We'll done!

You installed an actual wing and you're going to your first ever track day?

or first with this car?



A wing with the OEM front "splitter" is going to give you a rear grip bias in high speed corners and there car will have a tendency to push. You need to balance that with a considerably more aggressive front splitter. Perhaps even some dive planes to assist with turn-in.

Though if it's your first track day ever you won't have enough mid corner speed for the aero to be effective anyway.

Also by the looks of that airfoil it doesn't scream "effective" to me but I dunno would need to see CFD on it.

It does look pretty good, I don't have the patience for that at all.
