Is your Borla exhaust 3"?

Chris the GFX look awesome, they definitely look 100% better when paint matched like yours, I wish they came painted from the factory, I would have definitely ordered them on my SS.

So I didn't like the look of having no bezels on the rear gfx so what did I do? I asked my brother who is an EMT to get the jaws of life and with 16k pounds of force ( or however many pounds of pressure) flatten the chrome tips for now, yeah they're not perfect but shit it looks better lol

Sorry for the crappy photo

Heres a better shot of what the tips looked like after using the Hurst Jaws of life LOL! theyre not perfect but ill take it for now



With some more plasti dip on the bezels for touch ups and coating the newely one of a kind exhaust bezels the black hides everything pretty well. Went out for a drive earlier for about an hour and nothing dripped or ran




My favorite shot of SSydney, looking beautiful

Yeah i know the tips are not exactly the most beautiful thing youve ever seen, but it beats driving around with no bezels making it look disgusting. This is just a temp fix until i get some square tips

OMG! It looks so different! Just curious... Are you thinking on adding the white SS on the grille? And drop it? Beautiful Job!

Thanks Monchy! It certainly changes the whole appearance. I dig it! Im not sure if im going to add the white SS on the front grille, ive thought about it though. As for lowering it, i will probably drop it about an inch.

Thanks Pierre! Glad to know that you think they look good, Ill probably change them later as there is no rush anymore. I thought i was going to have empty squares until the bright idea i came up with

I actually love the white rally stripes. When i first got the car i wanted to change them to black because it just wasnt my ideal color combo, but they really grew on me overtime. I still wanted that aggressive badass look with the blackouts on the car but also keep it classy with the white rallys on top. In my opinion at least i feel like the white gives the car a well balanced look. From an artists standpoint, the black being a dark color keeps everything feeling bottom heavy and the white on top keeps everything balanced. Im not sure if that makes sense at all

No it definitely makes sense! IMO its one of the cleanest looking camaros on this site... the white creates a great balance especially with the gills... I was just curious because of all the blackouts youve done to the car!

she is definitely a neckbreaker though!

Thank you for the kind words! I will agree she is a neck breaker. Sending people to chiropractors since Jan 2013

Genius with those tips They actually don't look half bad way way better than no bezels on there. But the car is looking awesome. I have to agree with what you said the white kind of balances it all out.

LOL! Talk about being creative right?. It doesnt look bad since i plasti dipped everything all black so the tips and bezels all blend together and hide it all. Before when only the bezels were dipped the chrome bezels kind of stuck out like a sore thumb.

On a good note though, the seller who i purchased the GFX from messaged me saying he has the MBRP square tips and are brand new he just needs to find them. Hopefully he finds them so the rear section looks more "complete".

Im glad my black and white balance talk makes sense to someone lol

Well I did take one semester of design while I was a graphic design major so since they do mean something to me I guess that means I learned something. I have since changed my major because of those classes
