Liking the personal touches to the car. I have that hot wheels camaro in VR w/ white stripes as well. Never dawned on me to make a key chain out of it lol. Nice idea! I think grand sport hash marks and new rims would complete the look.

I had Sign-O-Rama install it. But, after seeing the guy do it, I could of done it myself for sure. They only charged me $80 for the front lip and the piece between the taillights, Because they quoted me for 1.5hrs to do it, and it took 5.
