WOW That looks great!

I'm still pissed you beat me too having it painted that way, even if it was inadvertently.
(I'm not really pissed just frustrated at myself that I could not get it done in time)

It looks amazing Tim, glad you kept it like that. Sucks to hear about the reverse hood issue though, I have considered it as a future mod.

Tim, the front end looks bananas! I absolutely love how the bumper and hood looks together. Luckily, with those badass parts, you don't need any reverse hood hinge . Congrats! You better bring people "depends" at shows, because they are shart like a mutha trucka when they see your car.

I took Tim's photo to Photoshop it to see how it will look. My heritage grille and front are already blacked out, so I planned to redo it. Anyway here is a quick Photoshop of what it would look like on his car.

No, I have the stock SS bumper and I am waiting to get my Rideskinz painted as well, my plan was to paint it just like Tim's but with the grille area blacked out again like it is now. So I Photoshopped hid bumper to see how it would look.


I agree It looks amazing.

I can't wait to see his car with the hood down... DAYUMMM!!!

More pics from last night!


Just finished putting the fog lights in. Will wire them up tomorrow.




Couple crappy photos of the Brilliant Black Pearl Paint.



(no scratches in paint....thats dust on the bumper)


Bumper in these photos is only held on by top 2 bolts....So fender bolts still need to be tightened..Just incase you notice the gaps.














Here is the shot of the hood line im having issues with. Since the Rideskinz bumper is a bit bigger, its meant to fit the stock hood. Since my hood flips the wrong way the nose of the hood scrapes the nose of the bumper and that is bad!!!

So the only way to get it not to hit was to shim the hood bolts up and move the hood latch back and it clears. However im left with this ugly nasty gap. So my only choice is to go back to the stock hinges. Oh well not too upset about it...this kit was a pain in the ass anyway!




More Photos to follow tonight.

Lower Mesh will be installed.
Hood correctly installed.
Support Brackets for bumper made and installed.
And removal of rear bumper to go off and be painted.

CamaroI I think he should keep it just how it is.

Because in the shots below you can see how well it flows on his car. you have the orange stripe through the lower ports on the bumper with the black inside, then you have the same effect on the turn signal area, then again on the Hex Vents. It all flows perfectly IMO. Very nice!!

I still have the fender stripes to add also, those are gloss black and will be a nice added feature to the car. Will really make the Black POP.

It's crazy Tim, I was just realizing, I have the Hex Vents waiting to be installed. I had considered the T3 Vents, but decided against it. Plus we have the same bumper etc, but what drew me to your build thread first was when you moved your DRL's into the lower grille just like I had thought about doing if I got the T3 Bumper ports. AND no joke, I was about to join the IconZ LS7 concept wheel preorder group buy right before he got the letter from GM to stop, and you have the wheels he came up with as a fix to the problem.

It is obvious you are a man of impeccable taste as well

I love that black you went with Goes great with IOM.

I think it would look great on the heritage either way. After seeing several different Black heritages running around town on IOM I thought they look cool. Have you thought about removing the White SS or keeping that? My eye seems to go directly to that area since the emblem is white. Think our eyes naturally drift to a lighter part

That looks sweet dude, that sucks about the reverse hood though. Which kit do you have the Halo supercar or the Revolution kit? I'm guessing all the mock up on the bumper isnt leaving enough clearance?

Yea it does suck but will ok. I have revolutions kit.

Exactly, no clearance for the hood to bumper, too much gap.

I had it off and didn't like it. I'll take it off tonight and snap a picture of it. Looks bare to me.
