The Stark emblems are sweet! Hope the stripes get worked out.

But, I did place an order with emblempros for some new decals. They should be here on Monday. I'll post pictures as soon as I get them on the Camaro. I've also started some fiberglass work for the trunk.
Ppl on this forum use Big worm graphics alot, may want to check with them

What are you doing to the trunk?

I also have these emblems that will be replacing my SS emblems when/if I ever get my stripes.

Special thanks to Emblempros for making the emblems and custom arrows for me.
Those look great, cant go wrong with emblempros.

I'm making a custom enclosure and fiberglassing a trunk lid that my iPad can sit in.

Pick up my painted body kit today, and ordered new wheels and tires that should be arriving either today or Monday. I'll post pics once installed.

Also, sending the engine cover to Lupe to be painted. Here's a quick photoshop. The red will be RJT and the gold will be metallic.

I went with American Racing Villian wheels and Nitto Motivo tires. Only got 22000 out of my Pirellis, so I wanted something that would last a little longer. 20" x 8.5 front and 20" x 10 in back.

Those will look awesome. I went with general gmax tires. Almost $1100 just for tires, but I got about 30,000 on my pirellis.

The Motivos are supposed to get about 60k. The way I drive, I'll be happy with 40k.

Lol I wanted to go do burnouts in my old pirellis before I swapped them, but didn't get a chance. I still have them though when the time comes

That's a great idea. Would look so cool. Maybe behind the grill?

I thought about doing that, but the heart of a car would be it's engine.

Lol. I know what you mean. I drove to the shop with traction control off, and you could probably find my location by following the skid marks. New shoes going on now.

Just cancelled my stripes. Got tired of the "I'm really busy, I'll get them done tomorrow" bullshit. Stripes were ordered on August 3rd with a promised shipping date of August 5th...

I will start making protest banners for the fest!

On a lighter note, those wheels are going to be awesome! Did you have the gound effects painted the other day when we all got together for lunch?

I ordered some orange hash stripes from them and it was at my house quick and they were nice. Also ordered my tail light and side marker black outs and they're nice too. He even sent me a full free set when I lost one of the side marker tints. I think it's just 1 guy maybe... Dunno though. Definitely wouldn't be an excuse for almost a years worth of waiting.
