Nice. I did mine the same way, but yellow. I used Krylon Sunshine Yellow. Almost perfect match. Get lots of compliments, and some want to know where I got the wheels. Don't go overboard. I painted the back of the trunk where the bowtie is, matt black, and put blue led lights in the dome light. Red is available, but I think the blue makes a nice contrast. Also put blue led's under the hood for the car shows. (same ones as I used in the dome light. Simple to wire up) hve fun. You might try some of the gill slit vinyl stickers. makes them stand out, and they are cheap..Like $15 bucks or so. I also painted the calipers red. No need to even remove the wheels, did it throught the openings.

Unfortunately, I have never been able to figure out how to post a picture to this site. Tried to post a picture of the sunroof but couldn't make it work.

Nice save on them rims. When i was looking into the camaro first one i looked at was a black LS. If it was all i could pay for i would have gotten it. But the rims are hillbilly inbred UGLY. look like spare rim donuts IMO i hate them with a passion. So that looks 100% better

*edit* IF i had gotten the LS i would have payed my dealer extra to put the 16 inch steel rims LOSE the donut LS black rims. Though black rims on a black camaro is HOT just not the styleing. If i could i love to get the 21 inch black rims

Black stripes possibly? Maybe somehow paint the silver bowties in the middle red? Go with either red or black bowties on the front and back? Swap out the silver camaro lettering with black...

I would get the CAMARO lettering painted black. I think that would make the black accents really pop.

If you are concerned about it, go to the local dealer and look at the tires on other LS Camaros. It could just be the kind of tire shine you are using or how you apply it.

To the original post, the red trim rings on the LS wheels look good. Red windshield wipers is a bad idea though.

Try a different tire dressing. I have used some that are worthless, and some that really shine. The best I found was made by Turtle Wax, but that particular one was discontinued. Too bad. Worked great, no much mess and lasted for a week or more.

I had black stripes originally but I had the dealer take them out... they took too much from the car being red. Now that I took it out, the red really pops out. But I do like the black trim here and there.
