That's the exact combo I thought about going with when I first built my camaro on Chevy's website. At the time I hadn't seen IBM in person so I decided to order without any stripes. Personally, I'm glad I waited. That look (at least from the pictures) is just too subtle for me, but I'm glad you like it.

I love that even thought all our cars are IBM, there are so many ways to make it your own - stripes, options, etc.

IBM needs no stripes to make it look great. I added the black stripes cause I wouldn't feel right driving such a classy looking car. I needed something a little "dirtier" or down-to-earth. Plus it makes you look twice to make sure your eyes aren't decieving you.

It fits me well, kinda fly on the wall and all of a sudden I'm there flexing some muscle. You don't really know I'm there until I 'm takin your money.

Then it's like "Hey-who's that with that awesome car ?!"

By the way, I love my car and she loves me.

NICE pic dude. Shows the blue very well. Seems like the color on this car really shows well when the suns on it at an angle.

Yeah I have had the car for 3 days now and every now and then on each of those days (mostly cloudy and crappy sky's) I'd get a glimpse of the real color hiding underneath until today when I went to lunch. I tried to explain it to family and friends but a picture really is worth a thousand words. This color is absolutely amazing. On sunny days it looks like the picture, cloudy days it looks dark blue and at night is looks black until another persons headlights or street lights hit it and then it just plain glistens with metallic.

The only complaint I have is the color shift from front nose piece to the fender. Chevy really should have set up the paint so the guns painting the nose were at the same angle as those which painted the fenders so the metallic flowed the same. This is precisely why I have considered adding a stripe to the front. Like these from RiderGraphix.com:

i dont think it is the angle of the gun i thin it has something to do with the primer they have to use on the flexible parts... a lot of people have problems with it

Nice. The first pic of yours you posted from the side really helps to show the color on these cars. Me likes.

BTW: You got some dirt on your passenger rear fender... Are you slackin'?

No, its funny that you mention that, my driveway is 800 ft long, 250 ft of that is paved, you can see it in my pics, my neighbor wouldn't split the additional paving with me so I have 600+ feet of gravel, I came in and out of the driveway today taking my wife and other for rides, it's the only spot that got dirty on the car after a wash this morning...

I need to invest in the good mudflaps, painted and all...good thing my car is a toy and not a DD....
