Lightbulb West Coast Customs : Camo Camaro

The next project on the show is the Camo Camaro for US Soldiers. Looks like a great build, will be blown from what I saw on the previews. Here is the image I found.

Next Sunday (Feb. 26th) 9/8C on Velocity.

Couldnt find another post when I searched so hope I made it first

They should have done something less bling-y with the wheels (gunmetal?) to go with the "stealth" or "camo" theme of the car. Although the way the camo actually turned out I guess it is pretty bling-y as well.

Its a nice car with lots of custom details. I saw this car at the Mecum Auto Auction last year in Dallas and it sold for I believe over $300k which went to a military charity.

This. Is it supposed to blend in at a gay pride parade? (And yes, I have license to say that).

It's rather colorful, and doesn't even mimic what camo is in the modern age (light-colored, pixelated, etc).

That pretty much nails my thoughts. Here is a picture of the hood from SEMA 2011. It had low rider levels of flake in the paint.

They should have used the digital desert camo on the car.
Whatever camo they call that looks like SH**!!

Yeah, I saw this car at the MCACN show in Chicago back in November. I was not a fan of the design, but thought it was for a great cause.

If I remember correctly they were going to auction it off at Mecum or Barrett-Jackson.

Going to DVR this and watch it, but agree with the fact that the paint is oooguhlay.

I am looking forward to see what they do to the interior though. Could produce some cool ideas.

Digital camo would have been badass if they kept one color as oppose to mixing colors which looks bad.

They bit off more than you can chew in one car. I think that if you focused on one branch of the service you could make a waaaay better car.

not digging this at all. However I do like the Hunter green color they used on the hood with the gold flake, like a Hunter Green Metallic. I think that would make an awesome color for the camaro.
