That looks awesome......lower looks much better black. I think the calipers would look great orange too. I kinda liked the orange small strip on the back in the photoshoped pics. what are you thinking next?

Well, I agree that it's not far from being too much, if it's not already. But the smallest orange strip on the rear is my thinking.

Then, I guess I'm done outside. Unless I do orange powdercoat calipers.

You better hit them up with that. For sure it'll set it off with your wheels.

I can't wait to do mine Jet Stream Blue to match the pinstripe we just put on ours.

FTW man!!! Do it up!

Damn the Photoshop!!! LMAO

Without it, we'd all be having some pretty rediculous looking rides.

I'm sure that there are many Camaros out there already where any one of us could go "wow, shoulda used Photoshop on that one before you actually did it."

I like the orange H grille! If I was to do it, though, I think I would have got the horizontal bars that go around the signal lights painted black. Basically just have the part around the bowtie orange.

Orange Calipers would be so badass though!

Yes...This.

I sorta wished you had chosen the orange/black/chrome Savinis to tie your theme into the sides of the vehicle. Calipers would do that even better, imo.

Maybe I can do orange/black/chrome IForged. :(

I wouldn't recomend Savini to anyone.

Oh. Crap. I meant to get back to him. I asked him when we could do it but never heard back from him. He must have forgot. I'll shoot him a PM.

Oh, don't EVER buy anything from Savini.

Duly noted. I can't believe the problems you had with those wheels. That's unreal.

Nice! Can't wait to hear your car then. I'm still trying to figure out what blower to go with. Decided to put my wheels off and get a blower instead. That and a Yank SS3200 high stall torque converter thanks to Speedster's advice!

You mean headers - and well just the headers. OK, maybe some pipes after that, but nothing else...
