Changed it up....a lot

Ordered some vinyl last week and spent the last 4 days making templates and cutting vinyl to change up the look of my Camaro. Here's the finished product followed by some step-by-step pics.

Thanks guys. Yeah Lrod, I have done quite a bit of vinyl work myself. Cant see paying these shops what they get to do this stuff. Takes a lot of time and patience but its worth it to say you did it yourself.

Looks good!!! Glad you took the orange off.
Not to hijack but what wheels do you have on there? I like them quite a bit!
Cheers

I love it. Did you do anything to the antenna? And how much did it all cost?

Loving your car, man. It looks AWESOME! This should be the poster child for a little does a lot. Nothing gaudy, just simple badassness.

Thanks guys. I made a template for the antenna and pre-cut it before placing the roof vinyl on. The only cost I had was for my 4'x30' roll of matte black vinyl. I did all the measuring, cutting and sticking myself.

Cool. Quality job! Looks very professional, do you have experience doing this? I'm looking to put on vinyl stripes myself but I can't find anyone in my area that is able to.

I have to say I was a fan of the orange grand rally has stripes you had before...even considered adding the same thing to my car except in silver.

But I'm not taking anything away from this new look. I think it looks awsome!
