I want to make the side gills stand out more. What are my options for decals? If you have done them on your camaro, picture would help as

there are many options to make them stand out, fader decals, stainless trim, edge decals..
I have the stainless gill trim and black 1/4" pin striping on mine. I don't have any closeups right now of it, but here are some distant shots.

Nice bro; you updated that engine cover pretty quick!

I would be stoked to learn my v6 just gained 8hp too!

I was actually referring to the news that the 2010 v6's were underrated @ 304 hp. The speculation is they were certified w/91 octane gas @ 312hp for the 2011 MY. And Skyman already changed his engine cover sig pic to reflect the increase.

To the OP: sorry for the thread jack

I have a 2SS RJT with Artic White Rally Stripes. I looked around and decided on the white pixelated type to enhance the stripe package. I am extremely happy with the durability and the look. The clear pixels allow a little of the RTJ to show through giving some depth and shadow effects. I ordered from AutoTrimDesign.net See the picture of my camaro in my signature and the attached.

Just a quick photo edit to reflect the announcement today...
I will have to wait to actually do it on the car later...

here is the actual announcement
Quote:
"There were no actual changes made to the Camaro's V6 engine that resulted in a power increase. Rather, Chevy says the current 304-hp rating was conservative and a new SAE certification resulted in 312 hp. So that means anyone who bought a 2010 Camaro V6 shouldn't feel shortchanged, as their engine is just as powerful as the 2011 model that will start production on June 7th"

Got my new 2LT Camaro from the dealer yesterday at 5 PM. Had the gills on that evening while working on my new ride. I went with a set I picked up from ebay. Unfortunately my car went from the cleanest it will ever be to the worst it will ever be in a short 2 hours. It was raining when I picked it up. Oh well, take the kids for a ride, then my wife. Finally into the garage and started the changes.

New updated second picture after cleaning and detailing work.

Ridergraphix.com has a variety of side gill inserts to choose from in a range of colors (you can also get custom colors). I don't have a close up, but mine are just like mulehead7's in matte black. I also saw someone on the Summit White color thread with silver chrome inserts but the pictures weren't the best. Good luck!

Thanks, this is what I'm looking for. I want some that don't make the gills really stand out, but look like their operational.

I got the defenderworx black billet side gills they are expensive but well worth it, I went trhu 3 sets of decals and they all look like cheap stickers for my taste, then bought a set that was supposed to be tick abs plastic with a hydrocarbon finish but they look like a pice of cardboard got stuck on the side of the car,

I should have gone with this ones and saved a bunch of money

At $400 a set that is really something the average owner would not buy.

If you want them to stand out make them functional instead of stickers which seems tacky to me

Again something the average owner couldn't afford to have done if done correctly.
