Without looking at the camera and lighting situation how can you judge it properly from that picture?

Don't even know if it's cured or not either at that point.

Are you talking about the silver stripe on the hood? It appears biased towards the Driver's side....appears that it almost touches the passenger side of the mail slot but has about an inch of space on the Driver's side.....Is that by design or was it a mistake? Hard to tell from the Avatar, but even in the pictures showing the hood masking, it appears that it's uneven.

Very nice ride though, and the sound in those videos is awesome. When do you estimate the whole project will be complete?

No. The shape of the hood stripe is perfect. What I'm having an issue with is it's brightness. I think the main problem might be the pictures. The shots I have make the stripes (hood and hockey) appear to be SUPER BRIGHT and almost white...which is NOT like I wanted. I wanted silver, but not I AM GOING TO BLIND YOU SILVER!!!!!!!!!!! It's tough to explain, but.... Tom sent me a paint sample before painting my car. I like it. But, I see the pictures of the completed paint project and it's off....I can't put my finger on it, but it's off. Read the posts above and you'll see. I just don't feel right showing pictures that do not truly represent what I want this car to say. The pictures of the completed paint are also missing the front splitter, spoiler, and chrome/CGM wheels. So, it looks WAAAAY off to me...almost like a "Oh sh!t...what did I do..." I'm sure it's just me and the lighting that the pictures were taken in. The colors are very similar to my wifes car and I LOVE the colors on her car. Again, maybe it's just the lighting in the pictures and the fact that it's missing parts.

I have complete pix. I'm going to hold off.

WOO!!!

Man, I freaked myself out over nothing!!!

The pictures I was sent after the paint job showed an almost WHITE appearance.....and let me tell you....

IT SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME.

On top of that, it's a work in progress....the paint HAS to go with other parts that are not yet on. Right now, it was just paint. I looked and literally freaked out. I do NOT remember the last time I stressed that much. But, it's all good.

AND....that is why I am NOT going to show pictures of it at this time. I UNDERSTAND. But, a lot of others might say, "oh boy....."....like we saw in a post or two in the last page. So, we are going to hold off. 16 days left until Carlisle. Not long at all. I just pray that we can get the most important part done by the time we get to Carlisle....the WHEELS. THAT is, IMO, what is going to make the car tie in to the paint.

I'm good....I'm ALL good!!!!

Arrow wheels

What did you say you are going too for the wheels, style, Chip Foose?
Do you have your own design?

R U going to let people sit in your Camaro at Carlisle.

Wheels...

CGM, 20's, SLP...not released yet. Hopefully SLP will have a set ready for me at Carlisle...or the whole style of the car just might be off.

Not my design. You can look at the Dale Jr Wheels on the Sema Camaro and those are basically them...just more...."economical" on the pocket book when you have to change out your tires. Smart, eh! Tom will be carrying the wheels at his dealer as well.

And, to the last part....letting people sit in my 'maro....mmm.....NO! That is....maybe.....um.....I might be charging to let people sit in it! HA!

On a serious note, no. It will be roped off. Realistically, if I were to walk away and just let anyone sit in it, parts would go missing, scratches could happen, careless kids with their drinks would get spilled in the car. No. I won't be letting people sit in it. I might let a few close friends sit in it, but that's about it. Sorry...but....I'm sure most people would understand. It's my, "baby."

I await it with baited breath. Take lots of pics, mkay?

1 question? Your stripes are a silver color, or white? My monitor is having trouble figuring it out.

See...that's part of the problem with cameras and monitors.

The stripes are silver ice metallic w/ two clear coats with blue pearl added.

The first set of pictures literally made me panic because they looked white. The second set of pictures that Jamie Mac took for me looked 100% better since they were shot indoors. But, these damn cameras and monitors can screw everything up.

I'm going to take hundreds of pictures when we go. I have 14 gigs of memory and then some....

Sweet. I am getting silver bumblebee vynils on my CGM. I thought it would be a more 'rare' color combo, but great minds think alike, I see.

Man, I'd love to have it on autoblog....in magazines...anything.

I just pray we can get these wheels done! Might have to wait until August...or go somewhere else to get them done...but we'll see.

Podcast??? I was mentioned on a PODCAST??? Where? When? I want to know!

I am subscribed to CamaroZ28.com's podcast, Chris Frezza and Jason Debler, its interesting and gives me something to listen to on my flights. (i am not a member) Camaro5 - 4 - life

Anyway... back when it was announced that you would be getting the first CGM off the line they said a Mod from camaro5 would be getting it. I am pretty sure I heard it on that podcast... I have them all back to 10/13/08.

The litho/print frame looks fantastic. I'm really impressed with what they did with it. For some of the others i've sent them to , i have pointed them to your journal for ideas. Thanks
