Thanks!!

It seems now that it's noticeable that I am modding my camaro I am getting tons of looks and even the "that is the sexiest car I have ever seen" comments. Who would of thunkted that a gel-coat hood would do that for a camaro?

Allen

P.S. Sorry I am back in my Tonkin log in... Oops

I was going to say, are you the right person? haha

I love the hood! Are you going to paint the center of the hood? or is it carbon fiber?

Sorry - I'm back to my personal log-in now.

I plan to keep it carbon fiber for the blister. I think I will do the hood spears in silver or blue or some type of striping to break up the one color theme.

Yeah that would look cool, you could also keep the indent around the blister silver. That might look cool! Just a thought

I like your thoughts - Thanks!

I plan to eventually two tone black on top and blue on bottom for the camaro, but I want to abuse this paint job first

Waste not want not!

Oh wow!! I really like that color!....and those cars, lol!

Maybe do a silver pinstripe to separate the two colors and you're in business!

Can't wait to see where this build goes!

Dropped my car off at Champion Collision in Sandy, OR tonight to get the hood painted. I decided to get the white hockey stripes for the car too, which I will put on after it is back from the paint shop.

Got my Camaro back from Champion Collision tonight and it looks sweat!!

I will be taking it to the next Columbia River Camaro Club meeting if you would like to see it. Photos to come after the meeting if we get some dry weather.



These Camaro's are the best!

Exhaust note is next on the to do list

Update April 2011 Hood and Hockey stripes on car.

We have our hood painted and added white hockey stripes. Next on my agenda is to and a nice exhaust note to this car so it will be sinister sounding.

So my car now has the XS Performance exhaust installed and tuned by Wong's Performance in Vancouver. In addition to the exhaust I had the V-Max Throttle Body installed. While I had Tom doing the tune I asked him to remove the 8 to 4cyl thing tat the A6 does and all I can say is the camaro drives like a completly different animal. The car sounds like a beast when you step on the happy pedal and at crude speed it tones right down to an acceptable level. Tomorrow I will see if I can get some sound bites for you from my HD GoPro.
