So I may or may not have ordered a 1" lift spacer for the front and the metal skid plates that are on the ZR2...

So I may or may not have received said ZR2 skid plates and 1" lift for the front of the truck, and I may or may not be installing it tomorrow...

It'll be like Schrodinger's Cat! Except it's a truck. And in my driveway, not a box.

I may or may not have just finished.

A little chilly when I started:




Stock Compare Pics:









A little bit taller:







A little more protected:





Now to source an alignment.

The difference isn't as subtle as I thought it would be but I'm OK with that. Lift is right around 1.25" in the front, so there's still a little rake but that's OK; I use my truck like a truck from time to time.

I fumble-fingered the image links, now working.

In the spirit of the original pic when I got it home, here's a 'what it looks like now':

GM factory rake is a way of life. The lift is subtle but looks good.

Nick: I know. Seriously considering a set of Goodyear Duratracs for it.

BMX: My future forecasting device tells me that I may or may not be talking myself into tires sooner than later.

I was sitting here, bored and wondering what I was going to do about the chrome stuff on my truck, and the bright yellow chevy emblems.

Chevy makes blacked out emblems, but that's $$ than can be better used elsewhere.

Then I remembered that I have a roll of carbon fiber vinyl wrap that I got for something else a few years ago, put on a shelf and promptly forgot about.

I dug it out. Wanted to try a bit of it on *something*. Looked around and found my key fob.



Considering that this took me all of 3.43 minutes, I think it turned out OK. A little heat from a blow dryer helped with the curves and some quick work with a semi-dull razor knife dressed up the edges.

Should work OK on the emblems, I think. Definitely going to plasti-dip the chrome badges. I have black and gunmetal plasti-dip, can't find anthracite around here.

That came out great, I'm in love with the 3M Carbon Fiber wrap, I still have a roll in the closet. I might pick up some similar black to do my mirrors on my Silverado, I hate chrome.
