Those are all flat black paint jobs. Only the tahoe has the flat black rims too tho..
the camaro has the chrome wheels/badges.
The camaro pic is the best in detail. The others arent very good quality.
I love the stealth look tho, something a superhero would drive. haha

Or everything flat black and add some blue racing stripes. I dunno. you would have to match the colors up to see what the best combo is..
good luck tho!

It's your car, so do as you wish.
It looks OK but will not have the balls to back up any !@#$talking!!

Save the money in paint and wheels and get an SS.

You can always add the paint and wheels later.

I've talked to one of my family's good friends that works at a Chevy dealer and said he can contract their vehicle shop to do a two tone like Jr's car and have it warrantied as well.

don't know the cost, but It'll be expensive, with pin stripe and everything. Since I've seen the Camaro with a two tone paint, I can not settle with one color anymore... and vinyls aren't an option.

I gotta stay out of the ABM and IOM color threads. Its getting harder to commit to a 2 tone

Not a fan of the flat black. I like shiny things

Other wise it is going to look badass!

I was wondering what the roof only painted black(vinyl-like/older Camaros) and black HS, especially on metallic green..probably too retro.

I'm a big fan of Two-Tone. I think that Camaro is going to look sick in Two-tones, I'd like to see something out there though, that isn't expected..

Flat black is the hardest color to wash. Because they're no clear, the bugs get embedded further into the paint, so you will NEVER get some of the guts out. You cant really wax flat black, you cant polish it. It's a very difficult color. But it looks great when you first paint it!

I would recommend going with a gloss black.

If you paint the top black your engine compartment will be blue, unless you pull the motor & all related. That would be way expensive. I bought a IOM ss/rs and intend to paint the sides in a White pearl fad (getting darker from top to bottom) and break it with a blue ban, much like your design. You may want to do something with the sides, easier & less expensive. That is what I do-paint.

Good luch eithor way & enjoy your Camaro

well i kinda get what you are saying soo umm ..since its the bottom part of the camaro i will have to get the engine compartment painted blue?

***I could always get Aqua blue metallic and get it painted black ***

Also I am having serious doubts about doing the 2 tone :(

I bet if or when i get my 2 tone done people will call my Camaro a Ricer here
because i plan to get the v6. (SS Insurance would Kill me)

Why would i care what other people think about my car

I'm on a :seesaw: on what i want to or don't want to do

i like the look the way it is in jinxs rendering. i would go with a gloss black though but im kinda old school. the medium blue would be awesome though for the bottom color! hope you decide to do it. would love to see it in real life.
