2 Tone

This is what my camaro will look like. It will be pure orange for about a week before it undergoes this transformation. What you don't see on here is that I may also have my side view mirrors 2 toned. If you have seen a Camaro in person you'd notice that the mirrors are like 2 pieces and there is an outer band on them. I may leave that band in the orange color.

Top and stripe will be painted on. I'll probably have decals made for the grooves so I can take them off if I don't care for them. Not sure whether I wanna have the gas cap black or not.

I attached the files I used to create this so anyone can create their own color combination. I used the GIMP so if you have it you can just open up colors.xcf. Each color is a layer and there are masks for the stripe, top, grooves, and door handle. So you just play with the ordering of the layers and add masks to the appropriate layers.

To create the masks I used InkScape so the masks.svg file is there too.

And if you don't use InkScape or GIMP and wanna use PS, then the individual mask png files are in there too along with pngs of the different colors that all line up nicely.

Hey, sorry it took so long. I just decided to check this thread. Maybe I should subscribe to threads that I start...

Anyway... here is the pic.

I can't get the grooves to look right. The dealer that I ordered mine from actually had someone put decals in those grooves and it looked great. I just can't do it on the computer that well.

Anyway. I am also thinking about de-badging the sides. The GM square on the bottom is gone for sure no matter what. The C A M A R O on the side is still up in the air. While I'm getting my custom paint job, I might just have them black out the chevy bowties on the front and back as well.

In my more updated picture (signature) I have changed the stripe from being either pure silver or white to being a blend of the orange and silver. I think it looks good as a highlight rather than a 3rd color.

Does anyone know what the deal is with GM Paint? Would my body shop order paint from GM or do they get the "recipe" for it or what? I want to mix 50% / 50% IOM and White for my stripe highlight.

that is sink and I would love to have the paint scheme
but I think you have to have blk wheels to make it look right.
Could you photo shop my car with the black top with my polished wheels. Check out my garage for photos.

Much appreciated

Sorry. I'm not good at image editing. The only reason I was able to do what I did was because all of the photos on chevy with the different colors lined up exactly on top of each other. From that I was able to create masks and pick and choose what color I wanted for what.

Taking a single photo and changing colors is beyond my ability.

so you can do that pretty easy?

if so, could you do one with white bottom and silver ice on top? i have no idea if it will look any good, but may consider doing something like that.

but don't waste too much time on it if it will be a hassle or anything

I didn't see a white colored car on the website, so no I can't. I tried taking the silver and making it white but it wound up washing out the stuff that was black. You see... I just have masks for top, bottom, stripe, door handle, and grooves (groove mask is not that good).

Sorry... can't do it.
