Mine would look like that, just orange if I had the $$$$$$.

Awesome! Thanks man!

Wow, great looking v6. It's pics like these that sometimes make me wish i would have gone more "show" then "go". But i'll get there soon. I'm about done with all the "go" for this car.

Did you also put the clear coat over the paint to protect it from the sun? If so how much was that as well?

DAMNNN,
Im loving the color scheme on your ride. I think your stripes turned out great.
Ill like to take pictures of my car and yours together one day when i totally complete mine. Im still missing the rear fender ducts (instead of the gills).

So your build really amazes me. There's a few things you did that I normally don't like at all, such as the white powder coat on the wheels, but I have to say that this is one of the best looking Camaros I've ever seen. Everything you've done to the car works together to look balanced and, well, amazing. Looking at it stock and then the car now just blows my mind.

AWESOME job!!

The paint was simonized... so I have to wait for another 90 days once it got repainted and they will redo the car for free... I think it was $500.

thank you.. the best compliment I have received on my car is when my friend said it looked CGI (Computer Generated) when driving down the road, like a car that would be in the movie TRON. Today was the first day I actually let someone else drive and I was following along and I have to admit.. this car does look fake as it drives down the road. I LOVE IT!

Good Gaawwwdd! I like!! Well done!!!

It's nice to hear about other Camaro drivers having long commutes...so I don't feel so out of the loop when I see a lot of them sit in the garage most of the time (which would be nice to do).

I drive 65 miles each way to work, daily. Definitely hard to keep it clean but every Friday it'll be the first thing I do, haha.

Again...well done!!
