Congratz man, where is the pic that they are using on the homepage? Are those Graphics or Shadows?

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

Welcome to the best camaro color!!!

White is black stripes is the cleanest look by far. I am biased. Paint those black slots in the wheels white and watch people freak out.

Painted Rally Stripes

OK- I couldn't wait any longer to post pix... Brought her home this morn and took some quick shots. Haven't washed or detailed it myself yet...

Anyway- note the difference between these and factory- the rear stripes continue up, over and around the rear center tail light ,and the front stripes are wider and tapered with a straight edge, not curved like OEM.

These were double sanded/cleared so theres virtually no edges/ridges- not only does it shine like glass all the way across the hood/trunk, but feels just as smooth as well!

Really happy with the final product, and a great price too (although I was asked not to publically post it...)

paint credit for stripes and gfx to Mike M@ Atlantic Collision, Port Saint Lucie Florida!
