Snow Tires on and Calipers Painted

Winter is coming and so after my last day at the track for the year it was time to put snow tires on the Mistress. The Pirelli Scorpion Ice And Snow tires really performed well for me last year. While the tires were off and the weather was nice, I decided to paint the calipers to match the paint.


245/50R-19 Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow XL on the 19x8 MSW Type 16 BLK RED ST rims.

Looks sharp! You've got some nice things going on with your car.
Nice time at the track also. (Just had one of our club guys out here hit a 14.02 V6 with just axle back and cai.)
Seems you all out there have a great group, we should all meet half way next year for a meet.?

You have alot of great pictures and some great track times. Thanks for using the Roto-fab CAI system and for sharing your results. It sure sounds like your Camaro is much more than "just a car" to you. That's awesome!

Nice thread and beautiful car, Erick! My cousin had a blue 1980 RS, 6-cyl 3 speed, and he gave it up to get married, still not sure why.

Thanks for posting the racing vid, so cool how you really took off in the high gear. SWEEET! You can tell it was made to run.

Love the come from behind to win, man that must have felt great!!! Enjoy!

Thanks! ^

Today was a beautiful day in Michigan. It was an incredible 82 degrees today.

Yesterday I spent the day taking off the winter wheels and cleaning up the wheel wells. I had painted the calipers Cyber Gray in the fall, but they looked a bit too mono-chromatic. So--Color change to the reminiscent blue of my 77' Camaro.
Before:

After:



I took the afternoon today to wash and wax. I love the mirror shine I got:


What a great weekend!

I like it, do you not want to paint over the Carbon fibre, I think it would look cool if you did like a see through silver
