Today, one of the last mods for the Stingray went on. I had a Z06 grill for the car with the front vents in Carbon Fiber. I succumbed and swapped out that grill for THIS grill.....in full Carbon Fiber.

That looks like a damn complex piece to make.
I bet NASA will be contacting you next time they need to build a spaceship and need strong lightweight components.
Many years with it now, still as thrilling to drive?

You're literally correct. But I like the Torch Red color. There was a guy in California a couple of years ago that made the entire body panel kit in Carbon Fiber. I wonder what happened to him.....

Do they not make the engine bay pieces in real CF just wondering?

New grill piece is super slick. Heck of a lot of work to make they.
