Well went out to some nice old spots and took some pics. Sorry about the dirtyness, but I can't wash the car for a few days while the vynils set up.










Still having a blast in Saskatchewan!

Later,
Lance

Cool pics. The showroom pics have that baby gleaming! Mine was filthy after several days of rain and a cinder road. Wife thinks I'm goofy for washing it in the dark but it had to be done and it's the first chance I got.

Dude...washing in the dark was done quite a bit down here in Texas for me. It gets so hot on the black car that when you run the water over the hood, it immediately starts drying off...and the water leaves spots. You end up having to wash it again. So, wash it in the dark in a cooler setting is the best way to go down here....and it's going to be 100 again tomorrow....UGH!

Thanks very much for the compliments TAG! Seeing as your car is about ten bazillion times more badass, I will take the nice words wherever I can get them.

Also heard from Gadzooka (another stoon guy) that a Magnuson supercharger can be obtained in these here parts for about $7500...... install is extra. Got me to thinking.....

Unless of course, a Z-28 comes out before my warranty is gone!

I would hate to sell off #9471, but getting like #100 of the Z-28s would be awesome!!

Thanks on the compliments back. Seriously, you have a real winner right there. Your combo was done really well and in all honesty, I'm kinda jealous! Hell, now I need TWO CGM'S!!

I'd LOVE to toss on a supercharger. Warranty and cash....the only two things holding me back. Shoot...if I do a supercharger, this thing is eaasily going to hit 50k. That's just out of the question for me. Maybe 10 years down the road. But now? Way out of the questions.

And....don't sell. Don't ever sell. I'm selling my 4th Gen tomorrow and it's KILLING me thinking about it right now.:(

You know, this would be so easily solved if GMPP just made a friggin supercharger kit!

I would order one for sure if it meant I got to keep the factory warranty!

DO YOU HEAR ME GM?????

Thanks guys! Now I am asking for some input: When my GFX kit comes I am getting it color matched to my CGM, but on the back piece, I was thinking about leaving some in that Dark Argent Grey it comes in.


There is the area in question. I think it would be nice to break up the body color a bit.

Opinions?

Great pics. Plan on getting the same stripes painted on and its great to see what they will look like. Definately need pics from all angles when you get the GFX on. I wonder if they would leave that section unpainted for you to see what it looks like on the car unless its too much trouble to paint it after all ready on the car??? Otherwise, I vote paint it.

Those stripes look amazing, and I don't know. I kind of like the way the gradient on the gills turned out. Also, it does look Saleen-esque.

Either way, Nice colors, great shots of the lighting on a CGM camaro.

Thumbs up

Pics look great as well as does the car. (The one where she's under the bridge is my fave!)
As far as the gfx goes, I would do the whole gfx. That is my opinion, since you asked. Enjoy your baby!!

Smile The Wheels?

Are the wheels painted or polished. I ordered painted (2SS/RJT/Auto6) and keep thinking about polished 20's. Yours look good so i hope they are painted?

The wheels are the Midnight Silver finish that comes with RS package. Not anywhere near as dark as they look on the builder on the Chevy website. I am very happy with them, they hide the brake dust so I don't have to polish them every time I drive somewhere.
