IOM Bumble Bee Updates

Hi All - I just wanted to share some updates.

Added the following...

-SLP LMII Exhaust

-Blackout Bowties

-IOM Quarter Flares

-SLP Front Lip

-Deleted or debagded the SS badges.

-Oh, and Zaino'd the car for a nice deep color and shine. Used Z-AIO and Z-CS.

The car seems to be coming together and the subtle changes really help tie in the Bumble Bee stripes.

Looking good! Do an LS7 front grill area blackout maybe? Darker wheels would definitely tie it together also. Great job!

You could also black out the lower valence like I did, after the TF2 Camaro. That would look nice as well! Mine was done by a local vinyl shop.

Thanks All - Yeah, I'm liking the contrast of the stock wheels. If I were to go darker I think just a gun metal, not full black.

It's funny. I have the front blackout piece and wasn't sure exactly where it went. (duh). Thanks all, i'm going to try to add that on today since the weather should be decent.

I also have the SLP faded gill inlay vinyl. Going to try to add that too.

Ok, So I had some time today and the weather was nice... So I was able to add the following.

-OEM BumbleBee Front black out
-SLP Faded Gills
-AutoBot Center Caps

Seems to be coming along nicely. The front blackout was tricky.

As I have been informed by some serious Transformer fans since I'm IOM and not yellow I do not have Bumblebee, I have Cliffjumper. http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...4nBNjU68ylg5Ku Thought it was kinda neat, so now you don't have to call it orange bumblebee

Cliffjumper.... How cool is that? And an autobot Prime no less. Thanks OKCINFERNO on the note. I was searching one day to find an orange autobot with no luck.

StingerBee - Yes, it is the GM OEM Highwingspoiler. It will fit onto the stock trunk.

Just remembered this you have to be careful if you have the stock spoiler sometimes it damages the paint when you remove it in areas the high rise doesnt cover

Thanks All. The next time it's nice out I'll take some more pics and will get more pics of the wing.

Death_Bringer - Mine came with the whole stripe kit, but Ridergraphix has just the front piece. I think it might not have the T3 writing on it. When I have a little bit more time I'll send along how I did it and the snags, tips, tricks, etc.
