My latest project

OK...so now that everything is caught up, here's my latest project. I've ordered new parts from Camaroscotty, and am going to have them custom painted. I just want my car to look different, and I'm really into the details. Here's what I'm doing.
  • Front Bowtie - IOM outside with flat black center
  • Front SS logo removed
  • Side Camaro logo - flat black
  • Custom painted SS logos (installed on the cowl) - flat black with IOM center
  • Rear taillight bezels - flat black
  • Rear SS logo removed
  • Rear bowtie - flat black outside with IOM center
Here are some Photoshops to show what it will look like. I'll update when I'm done!

IOM Concept Side Markers

I finally got the custom pieces done from post #5 in my journal.

Custom Painted Bowties
Black Camaro Emblems
Black Taillight Bezels
Custom Black/IOM SS Emblems (installed on the cowl)

A special thanks to Cory over at Kustom Werx in Conroe, Texas. He did a great job and was very easy to work with.

Showstopper Accessories

I just installed the last of my Showstopper Accessories and all I can say is wow! I'd seen some of Pete's stuff before, but wanted to add a few of my own touches. I talked it over with him and he was very happy to work with me. I think the end result is amazing.

My First Car Show

So I entered my first car show ever this past weekend with my H-Town Camaro Club friends. It was the Chevy Expo and featured a ton of awesome cars, old and new. I didn't really expect to win anything, but I took 1st place in my division!

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

My latest mod

I really wanted to buy some new custom wheels, but it just isn't in the budget right now. Instead I decided to just powder coat them and add an IOM stripe.
