    Yeah you wont be dissapointed at all. If your somewhere local, its awesome. If not, people send him vettes, camaros and V's from across the country. If you get a chance to go into his shop, you should see some of his personal builds. 1000 hp zo6, 800hp TT camaro, ZLR custom camaros, and his new ZL1 which broke the record on 1/4 on stock engine. My V has all the upgrades to the 650 package, but its in the tune where you will appreciate with him. shift points, tranny calibration...all spot on. Im excited for you! good stuff

    That is so badass. Not sure about keeping the calipers yellow but everything else is perfect.

    I would agree if the inside was solid black. I'd go with that blue that the ZR1 vette came out with a few years ago. But, the black diamond Edition only comes with the interior being yellow accent on everything. If I changed the brakes, my ADD would kick in overtime everytime i opened my door...lol

    If you need me to step in I can take some of the pain for you? lol.. Keep the calipers yellow like you said it breaks up the black and follows the interior theme. I laso have the yellow calipers along with the same interior. Your ride in now officially my favorite V..You made some great looking exterior modifications, Hopefully by the end of October I will have mine completed? Post more pics.

    Re: Black Tumbler Coupe finished!

    thanks for all the compliments, As soon as I purchased the car, i just went all in and all of this, not including the wheels, only took abou 3 weeks to do. The wheels took about 10 weeks because there were no forged aluminum Blocks anywhere in America big enough to make a 12" wide wheel, so they had to wait on the shipment. Otherwise it would of taken 4-6 weeks. I took a few pics of the rear as requested with my iphone. Im no professional photographer so its hard to get the lighting right. I just went on top of a parking garage and in Florida, its hard to get some overcast. Im trying to upload a vid of the exhaust on youtube. but its taking a while from my phone, and the sound quality im sure isnt the best. here are a few more pics. If you want any close ups on a certain area, let me know.

    Here is a close up of the Headlights i was talking about. I was just brainstorming on how to make the headlight come to life. I thought if you just lightly smoke the entire light, it will stand out weird like a big smoked cube. So If you look close at the light, there are lines around the housing you can folow and just black out the sides and top, leaving the front just lightly smoked. This doesnt interfere with light at night and gives it a more difinitive sharp look. Its cool too because it allows the light to filter forward and also takes away some of that orange ridiculous blinker light a touch without having to open up the light to change it. Its not for everyone, but i love it!




    Here are some rear end shots. I just called it the tumbler because everyone I talk to says it looks like batmans whip. I just go with it...lol
