Don't feel bad; we're all guilty of that at some point.

The thing that killed me was a very steep driveway in Lake Tahoe last year.

Wound up having to do this...

I understood what you meant, I was just kidding!

But seriously, thanks! The paint I used for the repair was originally meant for my engine cover. I got it from paintscratch.com. It was the cheapest option I found for SGM, and since it was intended for my engine cover, I wasn't too concerned about a perfect match. I also just happened to order the plastic adhesion promoter too, since the cover is plastic. The front end damage happened after I got the paint, so I decided to give it a try, after all, it was under the chin where you can't really see anyway, and I figured if it wasn't a perfect match, no one would see.
Considering it was a rattle can, it actually worked pretty good. It took me a couple of tries to get it to look right. I found that the closer you spray, the darker it comes out. (The metal flakes get driven deeper in the paint.) So I had to hold the can back at its maximum distance to get the color close. Any farther and it wouldn't reach the surface. A lot of color sanding and buffing later, it was not perfect, but surprisingly close. I'm betting I could do it better with an actual spray gun, but I'm in no hurry to try! In the meantime, no one has noticed. Or if they have, they've been too polite to say anything.

I owned several 69s in years past and until I had a chance to put my 5th gen next to a 1st gen I was sure the 1st gens were bigger. I'm still surprised.

Shipping my Synergy Green Camaro

I recently read that some countries have color restrictions on vehicles. Has anyone heard of any synergy greens being in Europe? Germany to be specific. My husband has orders to go there end of year and I'm praying I can take it! Just heard about the possible restriction today and the transportation office is closed until Tuesday. Or has anyone had theirs overseas before?!

probably not, I got these pics at the Abel Chevrolet show in Rio Vista..which was fun. The MJC show is more older cars right? I may attend, I love all cars... but if there's a local Camaro club, or other shows for our GEN5 I'd be there!
