Damn I really wish I lived somewhere there were so many Camaro events. Big or little.

When my car is running of course.

Touch Up Paint...

Had Kustom Werx in Spring TX do some paint work this week.

Painted all the chrome badges along with side markers and did the Engine Cover and strut brace...

Didn't get too crazy with the black out... just enought to personalize it...

Looks P H E N O M E N A L!!!

WoW! Could stare at that all day!! great job with the personalizational touches. Don't know if someone's thought of it or suggested it, or you've thought of it and haven't gotten around to it but seeing it on others is about the wheel lugs - are you going to black out or leave as is?

Looks great Mike! Glad to see you are wasting no time in making it your own.

The engine bay looks like it should have come from the factory like that with the color matching engine cover and strut bar.

Might look good with the flat black SLP fade gill decals too. Or have Kustom Werx airbrush it on for you. Just a thought.

Given any thought to painting the sideview mirrors black?

Like this one from WAY BACK in early 2009 -

Mirrors are very interesting... Never thought of it and I think I like it...

The side gills I've never been a fan of messing with them... I know it's just me, but it always seemed just a bit over the top.

If you factor in the miles driven in reverse you are officially over the break in period
