Bluestreak,

Still waiting for mine, on a train at the moment, but you are correct. The first IBM I saw was when I was on vacation driving through a small town in upstate Pennsylvania about a year ago. It was a dark, cloudy day and it was parked outside on dealer's lot. When I was approaching it, it appeared to be black, but when I drove by it, I thought I saw a blue tint. I immediately did a u-turn to see it up close because it was a color I was interested in, but nobody seemed to have them in stock until recently.

My wife was with me, and we both agreed that it was going to be the color of our new Camaro when we ordered it. We have since seen numerous ones and I think it is an underrated color choice. Can't wait 'til it gets here. Hopefully, only a few more days.

I got up to Pend Orielle Park and snapped some pictures of my IBM LT2 RS 6m aka Trigger and got some beautiful sun-play on the blue.

If I didn't live in FL or had leather I would probably have done 30 as well....I am still getting used to the visibility with this car so I may wait awhile before I take the tinted windows out at night lol

Hey Victory, what is the legal limit for tint in Indiana. I haven't looked into it, but now that I have seen some IBM's with tint I may have to consider it!

Window tint guy told me 30%. I went with 35% based on it was my understanding that the Camaro windows have a factory slight tint. When driving at night I'm super happy I did not go any darker. Kinda right there on the edge of if it were darker would be too tough to see clearly outside when navigating curbs, cement medians, multi-lane concrete islands etc etc.

I'm going with 35% seems to be about the right amount.

your cars look great, sometimes I wish I had stuck to my IBM idea but I'm happy with the SW also.

Found them on ebay for pretty cheap! Heres a link to it: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Large...Q5fAccessories

Its actually a fairly thick plate (sticks out a little farther than the "CAMARO" lettering) with adhesive on the back to hold it on. The only problem I have had is that the one on the driver's side has started having the black paint flake off a little bit inside the eyes, but for $5 each they are pretty nice and I can easily touch them up if the peeling gets too bad.
