My babys in surgery as we speak... black.gloss rally stripes getting painted. Double sand/coating to completely blend into clear coat, ie= no ridges.

Painter just called to tell me molding around convert top (attached w double sided tape) may break during removal... I need evryone on C5 to say a collective prayer for my car- got Pony Wars next weekend, can't afford a broken part right now!

Stripes in the works...

Gotta love my body-work friend at Atlantic Collision- he does a hell of a job! Working on my stripes now. This is the first coat on the hood, you can see the sanded portion on one of the pictures, absolutely NO edges/ridges!

Looking amazing so far, the black is a super sleek, high gloss shine! (Pix don;t do any justice, from a camera phone)

Stay tuned for the finished priduct!

Congrats on COTW! Those wheels look sharp on the white car! Wish we had the sunshine up here in the pacific northwest to justify the vert. Look forward to seeing the car all painted up with stripes.

Its actually in post #69, they just cropped it... shadows... fresh coat of McGuires 2.0... even the paint shop asked about the wax, said the tape wouldn't stick, lol!

Thanks everyone! Went to pick it up today, but it was raining all day, gonna wait till Tues. Took some pix w my cell, but would rather get it cleaned up before posting. Looks phenominal with the painted stripes! The gloss is amazing, and completely smooth- absolutely no edges! Hopefully i'll have some pix up tomorrow!

As for the wheels- I think SLP really did themselves a huge dis-service with the promo pix they put out for the retail sites. I think the shoddy pix really turned people away. But as you can see- they're really great wheels and complement the car very well; I wanted similar to the vert concept and am extremely happy w the SLPs!

Got some engine chrome coming, but looks like the crappy co I ordered from wont. Have it here by Pony Wars this weekend... oh well, another post for next week then, lol

White with black stripes just like my 72 z28 had. I love that combo. Your car makes me wish I waited for the convert. Oh well maybe my Camaro needs a companion.

Keep up the good work
