white calipers are a bad choice, will show way to much brake dust, also if doing calipers, change pads to ceramic pads{less dust} ...i still say , go with a black and white heritage grille, black /white bowties and do the calipers gloss black with white chevrolet lettering...and gloss black fender emblems..along with black tailight trim..jmo...drago, go to photoshop brd and look up brunogadget, he will hook you up..post pic of your car with some ideas i just gave you and he will hook you up with some good ideas

Dunno Mike- most people don't like the chrome/polished look, but I actually do... putting more on, actually... maybe you'll come around once theres more to it???? IDK... just my personal taste...

Definitely agree with the calipers... not high on my list, but with as much dust as they throw out, white is DEFINITELY not on my list....

Started a whole engine project (that's my unveiling at our next meet...) but put the brakes on mid-way... dunno if it's worth the $$$ I was looking at if I do end up with a Supercharger or something similar in the future... decisions decisions...)

Looks good. My only suggestion would be to get Square exhaust tips. Looks good with the graphics package. LED lights also look good. I have the boston acoustic premium stereo and wish it was better. With a convertible, better tweeters/speakers and a sub would be even more important.

Still waiting for my cat-back to come out for the vert... saw dual tips in the GM gfx, that I liked, we'll see in a month or so when the exhaust hits the market which direction I end up.

I actually had a great oppertunity to have JL Audio build a stealth box for my car as a demo/tester but passed it up. Too many details to get into, but I just didn't feel it was the right deal for me. Might end up upgrading the amp and sub down the road, I like the sub placement in the vert. Could definitely use more high end as well, but that's all way down the road.

Should have my underhood bow tie and 6.2L emblems in this week to install. Next up is a little more cosmetics for the engine cover (just had it painted to match ) and the lower grill ducts/vents...

Then hopefully a winning lotto ticket to help pay for all of this!

Looks Great, I love the painted stripes, planning on doing the same thing when mine comes in. I was never a big fan of white cars, but I think yours is fantastic looking. Cant wait to see what you do next.!
