anyone else notice that the hood stripe is way to far to the right compaired to the left.

I'm guessing it is still in mark up phase though.

Yep!

Toms paint guy, Rick, and I were on the phone doing all of this 1,500 miles away...

We were looking at pictures and saying 'this should be done here, that should be done there' and it seemed like he was spot on with me throughout the process....SUPER easy to communicate with.

I told him I wanted to see how the stripe looked on the side of the cowl at the bottom vs riding the top line of the cowl like GM's stickers.

No offense to anyone getting the hood single stripe, but after looking at numerous pictures of GM's hood stripes, it just doesn't seem right. It seems like it should go on the top of the cowl and down the sides. GM's look like they were trying to save money and make the decal laying process easier since you have a very defined hood line (cowl line) to follow. Also, it didn't go around the mail slot....costing GM more money. I think they shortened it for those reasons (ease of installation, cost).

In the picture above, you see two different ways that the line could be painted. The first is on the left (top of cowl). I had them put it on the bottom of the cowl (on the right) to compare. We all agreed that the bottom of the cowl blew the top of the cowl idea out of the water.

But, remember, to each his own. If you like the top, more power to you! If you like the bottom, well...that's cool too.

It's all about customizing YOUR own ride!!!

Nope! Hey! I need to come up with a name!

This will be difficult since I always refer to my cars as "she." But, in this case, this guy's a freakin' monster...

I don't know!!!

But, I do have to come up with a name. Something....shadow(y)? Something sleek and powerful.....

How about something mythological?

Yea I agree about the single hood stripe not being as good a fit for the car as the double.

They had it in the paint booth today. We decided on rear tail panel color. Rick also came up w/ a pin stripe color, but I'd really like to see it in person. I think I'll like what he chose for the pins. It should be perfect. I hope it's done tomorrow. Maybe Wed....we'll see. Can't wait for those pictures.

Naa, don't name it Ares; that's the Dodge Ram, like the truck. How about something that might be a Transformer...like Rumble B or maybe just Rumble.

Tag,
Can you put these on the first page of your post...

Its easier to track that way. Maybe I'm just too lazy, but I have been just bouncing to the first page and keeping tabs on your project from there.

Yep. Done! I put the graphs up on the exhuast page.

Now...if I could figure out how to take a pic of the excel spreadsheet so you all can see exactly how the exhaust changes the hp and tq output through the RPMS.....

How about 'printscreen' [prtsc] then edit and save with your favorite photo software?

Dude!! I want it done!
When I talked to Rick today, he said the stripes and tail should be done. He also said the pin stripe should be going on Wednesday. He picked out Wave Blue Metallic for the pin. I stopped by the Pontiac body shop today and took a look. Dayum does it look good! Hope it's done tomorrow.

What plans do you have on stripes for yours? I know Tom said he had like 4 or 5 more in line and yours was next.
