The ZL1 side rockers are made in RTM Composite. ACS specializes in this type of manufacturing technique. It is a blend of polyester resins and strands of fiber that is put through heated high compression molds. The result is a highly rigid and durable body panel--Optimal for aerodynamic performance and ground effect kits.
How well will this fit on my 2016+ Camaro? Do I need to modify the product or my car to get this to fit?
All our products are designed using only GM OEM data. This means that the side rockers were digitally designed based on specifications of the 2016+ Camaro. This type of fit would not be achievable by hand-modelling. Additionally, you will not have to modify the product or your car to get this to fit. The only thing needed is to drill the required holes on the underside of the car.
Do I need to drill holes into the car? Can I use two-way tape instead?
Yes. Holes will need to be drilled into the bottom of the rocker panel (holes are pre-drilled on the side skirts to make the procedure easy for you). The use of two-way tape is not recommended, and we advise you to not use it as the down-force generated from driving will likely rip the rockers off from the tape.
What is the difference between Primer, 1LE black, and Gloss Black?
Primer is an unpainted surface and is an undercoating that is meant to be final sanded prior to paint. There are no UV stabilizers in the primer. Therefore, if installed as is, then overtime the sun will cause the primer to fade and deteriorate. 1LE Black is an satin black option. It is meant to look like a matte or dull black with no shine in it--similar to what is found on the 1LE packages. Gloss black is simply your typical high shine black paint.
What type of hardware secures this product in place?
Nearly all ACS Composite products install via rivets. When a rivet is secured in place it creates a mushroom effect through the hole--Similar to placing an umbrella through an equally-sized hole and opening the umbrella. This is great for securing panels in place. You can find a handheld rivet gun here.
