Out back, the rear bumper was narrowed and relief pockets were cut and molded into the quarter panels.  Then a thin steel relief was added to the tall panel to frame the bumper and provide for a molded look.   RS reverse lights were also installed.











A Dedenbear relay center was installed in the front fender pocket near the original battery location on the passenger side.

On the driver side, the crew made an air filter housing to pull cool air from inside the fender area.



The ZR9 will stop with the help of Baer six piston brakes at all four corners. These will eventually be powder coated to match the car.



The crew fabricated the transmission crossmember with exhaust reliefs to provide as much ground clearance as possible under the car.





The LS9 supercharger inhales from the driver side of the car, so air intake tube was mocked up to feed the beast.



Fesler hood hinges were used to support the Cowl Induction hood.

A late-model VW hood latch assembly was installed for a cleaner look.



The engine will be dressed up with a carbon fiber engine cover from Classic Industries.





Fesler billet aluminum taillight lenses and a modern touch to the rear of the car. Inside, the crew build custom tracks for the Recaro leather seats. The rear support bar was installed and is removable for rear seat passenger access.











The mock-up phase was progressing, and the fuel system was installed. It consists of a Detroit Speed stainless steel fuel tank that is notched for exhaust clearance.  It contains dual Camaro SS fuel pumps and a Vaporworx pickup assembly.

An additional support was welded to the floor to act as a driveshaft loop and chassis stiffening element.





The ZR9 will roll on polished Forgeline wheels, shown here showcasing the upsized Baer brakes.







All the fuel and brake plumbing was completed in stainless steel and TechAFX carbon-lined hose.

Next, a 3 inch diameter MagnaFlow mandrel bent exhaust system was built to wind it's way under the ZR9.  









The tricky part of building and exhaust for a car like this is to fit the tubes around the rear QUADRALink suspension, coil over shocks, and fuel tank and to keep everything narrow enough to be inside the giant wheels.





The exhaust system is 100% TIG welded stainless steel, starting with Detroit Speed headers, and flowing through the MagnaFlow X-pipe, MagnaFlow, and exiting at the rear tail panel.

The ZR9 rolls on Nitto NT05 tires, 335/30ZR19s in the rear, and 275/35ZR18s in front.







The remaining pieces of the front sheet metal or test fit along with the grill and header panel.  



The crew installed the dual Spal fans, radiator overflow can, and made a custom bracket for the power brake reservoir. This car is running a Hydratech hydroboost brake assist unit which requires returns on the power steering fluid reservoir.
