    Put on my Black ZR1's, Lowered and GS Stripes

    I did a couple of things to the car on the weekend, it didnt make a big difference on the appearance of the car but looks a bit better then before. Dont mind the stripes my main thing was just to lower it and put the rims on. Sorry for the photos the shade and sunlight werent going my way.

    This pic is without the stripes


    This pic is with the stripes, i just decided to do it last minute

    Looks nice, but I think the stripes are supposed to be angled forward at the top a little more.

    I love the rims!
    The comment on the stripes is right, more forward and a bigger angle.

    I think it would look sweet w/o the stripes with the white and those black
    badass rims.

    I actually tried doing it more slant but for some reason it didnt look right, when you look at it from the back end of the car to the front of the car it looked too slant. I changed it probably 10 different times different angles i finally gave up and did it that way i was a bit lucky that i didnt strecth the vinyl too much or put too many bubbles in it. It looks easy putting it on but in the begining your like damn what did i get myself into then you realize you can play around with it as long as you keep spraying it with water as long as your not too rough with it.

    IMO, the stripes would look better in red....especially on white.

    Ok on the stripes i took advice up top and slanted them about an inch forward up top. It looks a bit better from far away veiw. I cant tell a huge difference i would have to take another pic of it and see. I was gonna use red stripes if i did the lip on the rims red, but i want to keep the theme black, red is a good idea too will see what happens in the near future.

    Now, all you need is Ron Fellows' signature and you have a 1 of 1. I like it. Are your ZR-1s staggered?

    In white on your car with the color combo would look real nice, to the other comment above, it does ride really good and hardly stiffer then what was before. I have it paired up with bilstein shocks which has a very good ride overall.
