Thanks...and they are all special in their own sort of way. I love every time I see a 45th! My poor baby has been in the garage for the last 6 months due to a deployment! In a week or so, I will be able to enjoy her again!!!!

Who knows, we may get a 45th Anniversary event scheduled and get all of us together...now that would be AWESOME!!!!

The ghost flames are only in the gray portion of the stripes. The clouds are kinda screwing up the view. I will get to see it first hand in about a week and a half and I will post pics of the stripes and the new RKSport Spoiler they are installing.

Check out eBay for Camaro decals, they have them there. Those are white or chrome.

My painted stripes.

I was finally able to wax them

Notice I changed the back red stripe to match the front. I hated how the red ended flat on the trunk.... It just didn't look right

They look great! I really want to do this also. But I'm thinking about getting another hood and another trunk and spoiler. I want to keep my originals and I want to have blue stripes painted on.

Thanks, PM sent. The gills, aka side vents are brushed aluminum & came from camarodecalstore.com, I tried hard metal stickons & vinyl & took them off, then found these, I have had these on for about a year, through many washes & am happy with the look & durability.

Based on the original post that started this forum, I would love a car cover that matched my car. I have to say that I just noticed in these pics how naked the coupe trunk looks because the convertibles have the antenna on the trunk. I have the 2SS convertible and have been scared to make mods so not to lose its value. However, I had planned on modifying my bowties. I bought the vinyl and the knifeless tape. Um...that knifeless tape isn't as easy to use as they show in the video. I'm quite a crafty and handy girl (I have lots of power tools) but I couldn't quite get the hang of the knifeless tape. Not giving up though!!

Here is my 45th 2ss M6. Been looking around the site for awhile but decided to finally post my car. So far I added a slp splitter, slp loudmouth exhaust, anvil rear spoiler, removed rear bowtie and side emblems, and tinted windows.

I feel the same way, so what I am doing is only mods that are reversible, no cutting of wires, no splicing, etc.

Nice bowtie. I went just CFM with a chrome outline from River City Creations. Also, for anyone else that still has vinyl stripes, I use Adam's Super VRT Tire and Trim dressing, works great.
