hey guys! so what i was posting about the paint on the driver's side door...i've taken some pictures of the weird effects i'm seeing. also, i was browsing through the pictures on the 45th group on C5 and found a picture of someone else's car with the same effect!!! will some of you guys PLEEEEASE go look at your driver's side door in the sunlight from a few different angles and see if you notice this?? if this is a widespread problem, this could be cause for us all to go back to GM...

look between the rear mirror and door handle. below the window but above the midsection line. you will see the paint appear to get dark, then light, then dark, then light. it's almost like shadows are being cast over the car, but there are no shadows.

oh, and btw i don't see this on the passenger door at all. PLEASE GO CHECK YOUR 45TH AND REPORT BACK!

here is my car:







FOR REFERENCE, NOT MY CAR BUT ANOTHER USER ON C5!!! this car is also more in the shade than the sun, so the shadow effect is not as prominently seen, but it's clearly there. i drew black lines to indicate where the light shades end and the dark shades begin if anyone has a hard time seeing it otherwise.

It appears the sun it hitting the rear quarter and door at different angles. (Door is flat and the rear quarter is angled out starting at the seam. This is normal and more noticable on certain colors.

What are P13W LED's? What difference do they make? The picture is not very clear. ---- nevermind I just saw another post about them, looks great, they look better than the yellowish lights for sure.

Yeah theyre well worth it IMO. Bromaro has a pic in his build thread with one P13W and one stock and it shows how huge the difference is.

Officially came up with a nickname for my camaro.
Everyone asks me if I'm going to name my car or something and none of the typical names for cars appeal to me. I don't want to name it after a girl, and I couldn't think of much else to name it after.

But when my old man ordered me a 45th camaro shirt described as a "black widow shirt" I knew exactly what nickname to use.

So now I'm officially nicknaming my 45th Anniversary camaro "Black Widow", and I think it fits perfectly with my theme to black out the car in the future. And to add to my legitimacy, there's plenty of black widow spiders here in GA so it's fitting my car be named that! Not to mention the factory color scheme being black widow-ish.

Also just ordered a CFM engine cover from chevy. They just released it recently I believe, and I plan on accenting it with red. As well as the rest of my engine bay with CFM and Red accents.

Does anyone know exactly what color the stripe is? I'm wondering if it's victory red or another shade. I can't seem to find anything more than "red" as chevy describes it on their website. I might drop by a dealer this week to ask and look at some VR camaros to find out.

Tossed on some winter tires the first week of December...it hasn't snowed since until today, and it was just a sleety lightness. Kind of sad after spending the money on them. It was 56 yesterday (record highs) so I got a good wash done and got pics ha.


I also got my footwell lighting installed the week before. Right not it's just tied to the dome, but I may add an override switch at some point to keep them on without the dome sometimes.

Well at least you'll have the tires and rims for next year!
And the override switch would be cool. I know a guy in our club who has his footwell lights on a separate switch and turns them on while he's parked at shows, it looks sweet!

Random information: The appropriate gift for the 45th anniversary is Sapphire

An interesting side note to this is that sapphires can be found in black, grey and red (though red sapphires are called rubies).

That's a cool fact I never knew! I'm gonna have to keep that in mind when I start talking about my 45th to people.

Yeah, saving 100 bucks every fall and spring will add up too. Not to mention potential damage to my stock wheels. It's like 5 degrees out now, gotta love minnesota...50 degree swing in temp in 1-2 days.

I think I'll do the switch in the summer when it's warmer out. I will be looking at an exhaust replacement then. If I can swing it and don't go to europe. Otherwise, probably a fall/winter mod. I really want to find a show to go to so I can hear some exhausts in person to better choose.

Wow, your car looks ALMOST as sweet as mine does.

I like the sparkly hood shot.

...along those lines: My dear father says that my car looks like a 1970s bass boat (i.e. glitter infused).

Agreed. Sex on wheels. (hence the fact that I jumped for joy when I purchased mine)
I have no doubt that my wife checks my shirts for strange perfume every time I come home from driving it.

If it's not a jump with a pause in the air like an 80's sitcom show close, I don't think it counts anymore.

No kidding! I'm WAY to old and brittle to be jumping around like that.

Besides, if I WAS going to buy a Japanese car it would be a Mazda (they have "Ford Motor Company" stenciled inside their door frames).

It's nice to realize that you can buy an import that was... made in America?
