Question My plans for my 2 Tone camaro

1st i will get a Black 2lt,beige leather interior, fully loaded, and a heritage Grill

2nd: i will go to a custom car painting shop to get my paint job done
I am thinking of doing the top part black part a flat black. because a shiny black does not look as good and the Blue part the exact blue that is in my sig (your thoughts?)

3rd i will order Black breyton race Gts (if they fit the camaro)

Your thought's Likes and Dislikes?

The flat black would be cool, I'd like to see it first, but We'll see how it turns out.

and those wheels are cool

I think it looks too pimpish... The only exterior mod I will be doing is painting on black stripes on my Cyber Grey Maro..

Indeed very badass. I just like the idea of two toning with some highly contrasting colors. That line the paint change follows is amazing. Great look! and the true heritage grill looks better than Jinx's rendering anyway. I hate the stock grille. All plasticy (CHEEEAAP). I might do flat black and victory red, or if i dont think VR is shiny enough, some more vibrant red color. Lots of possibilities. But like you asked, a quality paint job of this nature MUST be PRICEYYY! oh well. Custom badass look is priceless.

Yeah i am thinking the 2lt will be around 31,000 the wheels will add about (500-1000$)

The paint Job will cost around 3-5k?

3-5 is probably accurate. at an experienced shop with high quality paint. Is there a figure out for the price of the heritage grille?

I'm not sure about flat black but the whole idea is Sweet! This car has great lines for a paint job like that and I really like the blue/black combo. Finish it off with the rims and grill!

hmmmmm.... Yeah i was Deciding to go Flat or regular ... Still Am

then when i saw the 2nd pic down look at the black part It looks Flat black.

This is where i am thinking of getting it done http://pc.dupont.com/HotHues/webengi...dule_Arg1=Home

Edit: damn i Ran into a Snag in my Process. Considering i wont pay a 30,000 down payment and pay the car off right away.

I will probably put around 20,000 down and pay around 300 a month for 76 months :(

Go to the thread in the V8 section i think, at the top where it says all known mods... then click on one of the links to the GMPP site... it will open a catalog that has all the parts in there, and pictures of the grille. about as official as it gets.

car is f-in sweet can't wait to see the finish product but i'm also getting an 2LT my total was like $29,935 i think i got the victory red and black leather interior and auto tranny so if you get manual you'll save an extra 1,000 but i'm doing the college discount so i'll save 1,000 hopefully.

I dunno how the flat will look with glossy blue. either keep the top stock black and paint the bottom..
or murder it out. I love the look... and will be definitely one of a kind.
