I like your style ;-). I had my wing struts painted black, i think it matches better with the trunk stripes. Would look sick on your car. Once the car is back i'll post a picture to show you. Your car looks great!

Yes it does. I hope you are taking it as a huge compliment as well. I have seen many signatures on here on this one you had just made the other nice really got me. I by no means could ever produce such a work of art so xVengeancex28 built it for me.

Great looking car. How did you deal with the holes left behind by the OEM spoiler when you installed the high wing one?

Great question, you guys really know a lot about our cars! Before I bought the car from Sara at camino real chevy, we agreed on the price and that there would be no hidden fees like lo jack etc that dealers try n hide.. After my parts got in I dropped my car off and it was supposed to b a 6 hour job for stripes n wing, they call me back and say it would be an additional $300 labor fee because the holes don't line up. Long story short I talked to Sara and she had them do it for free!! They had to repaint my trunk after filling the 8 holes in from the previous spoiler.. they took pics of the holes and even made a memo for future people stating theres a $300 labor fee because the holes don't line up with the high wing!! with that money I wanna do some halos like that green car that posted on here! But blue and white, have no idea where to start with that any socal people no some shops that can order n do installs? Thanks for all the good feedback appreciate it!!

Lol ya man I no that's about a good hour n a half drive, I was just wondering if there's any in or by l.a which is about 30 from me cuz i gotta stop by my dealer on tuesay who's in l.a area... My rims kinda grew on me now, but I'm still getting new ones on my bday only cuz my dad won't stop telling me to get new rims aha. I'm thinking a white lip with black in the middle with white accenting the black, probly goina be some big bucks though :/

I think white just looks clean on almost if not all cars! I hate putting miles on this car though, after a long day of work and traffic all the way home, then school, I really can't even feel my legs with the m6 lol. Don't get me wrong I lovelovelove my car but I'm thinking of getting a white Kia optima with a black top as my work n school car..Anywhere else I'll drive my camaro
