Project Corvette Stingray C7 Z51: Body Modification


The new grille is a big improvement in looks once it is installed. Not only does it feed the front brakes a lot better, but it looks much meaner and more aggressive.

Now Howard test fits the GM Performance carbon front splitter.

The splitter uses some of the factory holes and fasteners to hold it on to the bumper, but since it creates quite a bit of downforce, it needs some additional support.

To hold it more firmly, rivets are used to reinforce its attachment to the bumper. Here, Howard is drilling holes for the rivets to attach the front splitter to the bottom of the bumper.


The Chevrolet Performance splitter is riveted onto the bottom of the bumper after the factory fasteners are installed.
