Yep. That's the plan.

Here's the Camaro with the new hockeys minus the new rims.
The following picture is how it will look after getting the new CGM wheels. IMO, it's going to need those CGM wheels to make the paint work. (The THRSS LS3) on the side of the cowl is only photoshopped.....don't pay attention to that). If we put something there, it'll be a bit different.

Thumbs up Nice

Turned out great brother. The blue going around the stripes makes it look like chip foose had worked on it, really nice :flag2:

Any chance you can get a pic of those wheels in all chrome on your car? They are nice but you can still go "louder".

I think the factory wheels actually look better.
Just my opinion.

LOVE the opinions, guys.

Good or bad. All opinions are welcome.

I REALLY have to have the wheels to pull this off (in my mind). As soon as someone comes out with front clear corners, I'm going to put those in as well.

I am most likely going to add "THR" in CGM and "SS" in blue on the sides of the cowl. Toms vinyl guy is cutting some pieces now in the proper "font" to see how it would look. As he finishes and puts them on the cowl, if we all like it, we are going to spray it on. That'll help to tone down a little of the silver on the hood and tie it all in.

My idea is coming together slowly.....

Two questions:

1: Do you all think GFX would look good on this?
:if so, painted or stock?

2: Rear panel is currently silver (I wanted to be different). The blue bowtie will go on that with a blue SS off on the right side. Should I keep it silver and be different?....Or, do you think going with a flat black similar to the lower diffuser area would be better? The ONLY real issue that concerns me is this....when it's night and you are behind the car, will it look like a construction strip of silver?....or will it blend in nicely? If it looks contsruction(y), I'd much rather just have them spray it black and call it a day (with the blue bowtie on it, of course).

Opinions?

They are welcome!!!

satin all over?....or satin on the rear panel? What do you think about doing satin on the rear panel instead of silver. Right now, this is the only one wish silver out there...unique, yes. But, does it blend. That is the question that I'm really contemplating..

satin on the rear panel!! iv thought of a few different things and would love to see some photoshops on rear panel on a cgm car. 1 is complete satin panel even chrome trim around tailights. 2. is satin panel leaving chrome trim alone. 3. is no satin panel but painting chrome trim around tails cgm. so many options lol. i like the silver though forsure. i had a friend who had a blue 4th gen and he did rear panel silver and i thought it stood out to much. but they are 2 different cars id have to see more pics in light.

Thumbs up

She's looking good Tag!!
I would go with the gfx. I think it helps make the car a little. AND, it must be painted to color match the car. (Just be careful if you are going to lower the car as well. I know that the NICKEY cars are not going to be able to have the gfx, because of the drop in suspension!)
As far as the rear panel?? I say kick it "old school" and do the flat black like the old school big blocks back in the day. This car is going to be bad ass. Might as well let people know, right?!?! LOL!!!
Looking good so far bud.

Your looking good. We planned for a blacked out tail panel a long time ago.
