If you could do those in two weeks imagine what you can do in a year ,you could also drain your pockets, I keep buying stuff every month and I always say this is my last order but then I order again and tell myself I really need those ,

Its Mandeville, LA, the northshore of lake pontchatrain, New orleans/metairie is the southshore.

And thats the causeway bridge, it was the longest bridge in the world for like 50 years, but they just built one in china in 2011 that was longer but isnt technically over water the entire way lol.

History lesson for the day

And actually looking on wikipedia to see where that other bridge was, I see that the three longest bridges in the U.S. were all in LA. strange

Thanks, I used plasti dip on the lower front bumper only, everything else was paint.

Taillight bezels, flat black with matte clear. Engine cover is red with clear over red and over black parts. Fuse box cover is red with clear. Wheels were pinstripped with vinyl.

Thanks man, I certainly spent enough time drooling over yours while I saved up for mine.

I am definitely considering it, I know it would look good. But so far the nicest example of a CRT car has been one of the ZL1s in the ZL1 CRT thread. So as of now, Im aming to get those rims.

Those night time pics is post 39, did you set the camera on a tripod at long exposure and run behind the car with a flashlight, or was that car headlights passing in the background? Either way, pretty cool.

Exactly, I had it on a tripod, and walked close to the car to paint it with my light (as long as I didnt shine it on my body I didnt show up in the pic). Then a couple times I just ran behind the car in the last couple seconds with the light aimed at the camera.

Used like 25-30 secs of exposure

Its actually vinyl pinstriping, and is holding up great. I have a DIY here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...18#post4937918 And if you do want to paint them, it wouldnt be too bad, just mask off, scuff/sand then paint the area red that you want. It would be a b*tch to mask off that many curves

I know! I back into my spot at work so I dont have to look at them all day when I look at the window. I will probably paint them black soon, just until I get new exhaust.

Its actually just my stock engine cover that I painted parts of it a deep red, and then I clear coated the red and black parts. The angles from the car show pictures do kinda make it look like a strut brace, but it does give me ideas for a paint scheme when I do get one.


Thanks guys!
