Ah damn man, sorry to hear that. I was really hoping the bumper would have been a easier to work with. Knowing you are doing the work though, it will probably come out perfect, just like the other editions to the car.

I hope so, got a few other little things I'm doing in the mean time. Painting the rear middle section of the body kit pearl black. We actually destroyed the heritage grille trying to get it to fit, so it will be re-painted, so I'm going to scuff up the center slats and paint those pearl black as well to match the front and rear bumper. I am also adding grand sport stripes on my fenders, nice fat ones!!! And I'm looking into roto fabs custom engine covers, iom and black with Camaro 6.2L LS3 on it!!

Thanks bud!

I did both vents at the same time but from what I can tell when stopped the hex vents push the most heat out. However when moving the T3 vents throw more heat due to the t3 vents in my bumper blowing air into my engine then forcing the hot out. It's actually a sweet setup!

Should look incredable when done. There is something to say about being completely different than everyone else on the road

Painter sent me this picture, right away I saw he screwed up. The center was supposed to run all black, no orange under on the lip. What's everyone think, keep it this way or have him repaint it all black center?

YOU DIRTY RAT!!!!

That is exactly how I am going to have mine painted!!



I of course think it looks good.

My upper grille will be all carbon Flash as well so it wont be exactly the same, but I have planned to have the aqua blue run along the flat edge along the bottom front like yours is.

I say keep it.

I planned to paint it like that because it makes the most sense to me personally it's more coordinated that way.

Damn!! Looks absolutely badass my dude. I love it the way it is now. However, I can't tell how it would look unless I get a front on view.

Personally, I love the lip as body color. Why? Basically, it provides the most aggressive appearance possible because body color (non dark color) it shows a low stance better than black does. Black color accents perfectly, but it takes away the low profile look all at the same time.

Obviously, you can't loose either way, but that's my 2 cents .

It's definately growing on me, it's kinda breaks everything up and doesn't just leave it looking like the black drops off.

He will send me at straight on photo in the morning!

I totally agree. I also planned to paint the bottom splitter body color. I just prefer the way it looks and the low appeal it provides. Many people love the all bottom blackout look, but I'm not a fan for the reasons I specified. It obviously looks great in body color, or blacked, but painted body color will always win in my eyes.

It will match what you currently have too. The white splitter with the center lower of your bumper blacked out.

Yeah the design of the bumper looks like it is meant to be painted like this IMO.

If not the center lower portion should match the area to either side and extend across between them, at that point I would use that line to break the paint lines. you know what I mean?

Oh wow, 2 more yellows! That's a good sign, as its fun to see everyone's vision come together and the way they like to paint them. It's requiring some serious work that's for sure, and it better be worth it. Haha. I'm going to insure this damn bumper in case it gets crushed in an accident.
