are you going to do anything to the tail lights? I think if you black them out and put enough clear coat on them they would go really good with the panel. I blacked mine out myself and put enough clear on them to give a gloss shine to them

U2b'd (Embedded) em for ya.




Ever think of taking the muffler and pipes after the axle and spraying them down w/ black header paint? Obviously tape the tips off to keep 'em standing out under the lip. Could compliment the berger panel mod pretty nicely with the black/red motif.

And oddly, they took a Z28 'clone' of your RS to show off tips I'm looking into.

How did you do that to the videos? I might consider the flat black paint. I like the currents tips I have on there. Where you see those tips at? There are pretty sharp.

The code is u2b, same as image embedding [img][/img]. Take a youtube URL (www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwPziaeFY8s) and copy just after the v= part of the URL and nothing after "xwPziaeFY8s".

Doing the painting wasn't too hard for me, just took my time, applied it in several layers but gave it plenty of time to dry since it's kinda fragile until it cures. After that, it's almost as good as powdercoating. They also make a gloss black version too, along with engine enamels.

As for your tips, you do have a point, single tips rather than the quads seem more the Camaro thing. They sell 'em at Afterthoughts Auto.

Here is the close up. You can't ready see the shine as good on the pic.

Havent done my panel yet but I'm getting around to it. Also I tried to black everything but the reverse part. But I messed up and ended up doing the whole thing.
