Had the chance to grab some shots of the new look im going for, still have some exterior mods that will be ordered soon which will compliment the car nicely but for now this is where im at. I also dipped my rims today which really look awesome IMO now that i got rid of all the white on the car and went to black. All my photos were shot by me with my iPhone 4s and then put through lightroom5 /PS Cs6

Looks good Chris. Are those vinyl hood spears? Any plans on debadging or dipping the CAMARO fender letters & back lettering black? Think it would look good since you're 99% red & black now.Then some Showstopper LED side markers ghosted in IOM or even Black (I think would look sweet!) and you're all set!

On another note, look for my reply to your email this weekend bro.

Thanks John. Yeah those are vinyl hood spears on the hood. The "camaro" is getting removed soon due to something that will be in its way once the new mod shows up. I might leave it off or black it out to match everything else i have now. Sidemarkers are in its future

Ill be on the lookout for you email this weekend!

Havent had any updates in while so i guess ill give a recap on whats happened in the past few weeks. Ive gone in a different direction, more aggressive. In the previous posts you can see ive ripped off the white rally stripes i originally had and decided to go with black hood spears and black gills. I also plasti dipped the rims.

This coming week ill be doing some cutting into the car and installing my latest mod which I'm very eagerly excited for. I also just ordered a VMAX CNC Spiral throttle body from Apex Motorsports. Once i get that installed i can head over to ECS and get my car fully tuned with all the performance mods i currently have done which include my rotofab CAI, KOOK 1 7/8" LT headers, Borla atak exhaust and soon to be VMAX TB. Will have some pictures up in the next week or so of my new mod

Got my 3D Carbon fender vents from Jim over at OhioSpeed last week. Got the courage to do it myself with the help of my father. This was a ballsy project to do yourself thats for sure Came out great though.

Thanks to Jim over at OhioSpeed for the vents. Color matched up perfectly!

Here are some shots i took today

Going to be doing some painting in the engine bay once the paint gets here in a few days. I havent seen anyone do anything like what ill be trying here, so im crossing my fingers that it will be awesome once its all done.

Will post pics up once its done. Stay tuned!

Appreciate it!! The car took a real drastic turn to more aggressive very quick.

So here is a little update. The paint i ordered finally came in. Heres a little sneak peak, watch it in 720p. Im sure this wont be for everyone, but i think itll look awesome once its done. (Which im not saying what is getting painted yet) Hang tight.

So i took a paint project today that ive been trying to plan out for a while now. I know this wont be for everyone but i like it and im trying something new that i havent seen done before, i think.

So i found this color shifting paint and liked it so much that i decided to paint some stuff in the engine bay. I have still the engine cover and manifold cover to do but this is what i have done so far.

What do you guys think?

















This is now after i wet sanded the clear and put compunded and buffed everything out

You take so many pictures! I need to step my game up. That color shifting is a nice offset to the iom and black setup.

So yesterday i painted the fuse box, cai tube and posted what those looked like and today tackled the manifold cover which was such a pain in the ass to pull off. As promised i installed all the pieces back in and took pics of everything put back together. I still have the engine cover to do which im going to be customizing and using the same paint, so thatll be next weeks job. Again, i know this might not be everyones cup of tea but i love it, otherwise enjoy the pics

Heres some shots after i cleared it and wet sanded it all down then applying some compound to buff it out followed by a sealant.











And here is with everything put back in the engine bay, these shots were more in a shaded area









And these shots were in the direct sunlight. The metallic flake is amazing to look at under the sun..

You're highly talented with that shaker can Chris. The car is looking amazing. I love the colorshift paint idea. It's hard to be different with these cars because it seems like everything has been done. You found a way to be different.

Good job!
