Aaaarg! I miss judged pulling into the driveway with my 2013 427. YES I scraped (hit the curb) the splitter. Big time, need to call the insurance company. The car has 230 miles on it, so stupid. Anyone know what the replacement cost will be. The damaged is to bad to repair in my opinion. Murphy's law lives within me.

When I asked my dealer, I was told the front splitter was about $1800 over the counter in parts. OUCH!

Yea. Just left the dealer here in Columbus Oh. About 750.00 to repair and clr bra it again. I have seen online RPI, CorvetteMods new for 650-950. I may just go that route.

I haven't seen what the RPI or CorvetteMods splitters look like. Then again, half the price over factory as got to be looked considered.

They are identical to what's on our cars. RPI will paint them to match the car. I will call them Friday to ensure they can match the gray color.

I ordered a replacement right side skirt for my ZR1 from RPI. The mounting holes matched up perfectly with the existing holes.

I ordered a carbon fiber repalcement from RPI. Have not mounted it yet. I will take the original to a painter to see if they can repair
to original condition. I am not savy enuf with carbon repair. I also have a clr bra on it, so some, hoping not all, can be removed and that 2 ft section blended in. Local shop wants another 250.00 to redo the clr bra. I paid them what I feel was a premium price the first time. Thought they would give a discount for a repeat job. It's also got some bubble showing, that alone should allow for
an discount. So much for life time warranty. Anyway, watch out for them curbs..
