When it comes to paint, I am planning to have 2 tones on my camaro: the main black and a gradient color for the body kit. That why I started by testing the best combination that goes with black. Will use the tail lights bezels for testing (Anyway I hate that chrome thingy!!!)

Here are some pics

paul44 06-27-2013 05:28 AM
