The brace is all paint with the exception of the "1LE" which is one of the badges I had made.

I tinted the side markers with 4 light coats and one medium coat of VHT Nightshades.

I used 3M 1080 vinyl for the stripes. I bought a 2'x5' sheet (cost around $26). Then I cut 4x 5"x21" stripes. The 3M 1080 stuff is AWESOME to work with. I will NEVER touch cheap vinyl again.
Make sure the paint is wax/dirt/dust free. Have a hair dryer handy just in case you get some wrinkles.

How did you black out the camaro letters? I did mine but i took them off, painted them and then reinstalled them. After a year its starting to fade a bit so i wanted to see if there was another way without taking them off again.

This is pretty much what I did.
I sprayed them with adhesion promoter and Duplicolor Bumper Paint. I used it on my wifes FJ and it has been holding up for over a year now with no fade.

I'm going to attempt doing that this coming weekend now. Thanks for telling me how it's done.

Love the SIM 1LE and the mods you've done. I really want to put the NS-1 Stripe kit on my car but I may just add the Hash Stripes!

Updated with a video! (in the first post)

Threw on some JBA high flow cats last night.

Great alternative to headers and a tune for the warranty conscious.

What were your other color choices? Your pictures make the SIM look good.

I actually wanted SIM when I got my first SS, but I ended up working a deal on a white one. Now the white grew on me so when considering going to 1LE or ZL1 I am not sure I feel the same about silver.
