Custom flat black stripe and rear panel on silver (Pics)

Here are some photos of a Silver RS we did for Fremont Chevrolet. Customer wanted a single stripe on the hood and black on back panel. Instead of just between the tail lights, we painted the bumper and luggage lid. We also blacked out the tail lamp bezels. The hood stripe extends into the front bumper cover. The factory decal is too short in our opnion. The customer wanted to improve the factory option single stripe. This car is one of many versions we have planned for the 5th Gen Camaro.

I think it makes the car look like an Impala. To each his own though, it definitely doesn't look bad. I just prefer the solid paint.

I really like the blacked out tail and bezels, looks fantastic!

What did you guys use for the chrome bezels? Doesn't look like paint.

It is all paint. We do not want to use decals. Paint is the way to go for quality and long term.

i think it looks a lot better than the decals as the blackout, but i think it was kinda stupid to have that extra inch extended on the hood, but whatever floats your boat i guess.

It was done to try something different than the factory decal. If you look closely at the body lines on the hood and bumper, the cowl line extends into the bumper. We followed the body lines on the car instead of cutting it short.

Looks pretty good CWE. I think I might be taking my car to you when I actually get it. I'm still trying to decide which options I'm going to get. I'll give you a call sometime next week though. I'd like to see what else you guys offer.

I LOVE the blacked out chrome trim around the tail lights. I don't think I'll black out the whole rear like this (although it's very well done), but I'll definitely be getting rid of the chrome trim around the tail lights. This looks much better IMO.

I like the blackout between the tail lights but just not the whole thing...the hood stripe is not my taste either.
