Painted some stuff on the Z

Not liking the chrome bowtie/letters/taillight bezels on the car so I decided to paint them myself, and the strut tower brace as well. Also just completely removed the CAMARO lettering off the side. At the same time I finally installed my taillight blackouts from headlight armor, and my AAC concept mirrors. Here is how it turned out...

Looks good! What color is that black? It kind of looks like carbon flash metallic.

Thanks, your car looks awesome! It's black diamond tricoat, they use it on Caddys.

Thank you! And idk about the engine cover, some people say I should and other say don't because it sets it off. I might get an extra and try it.

My guess would be because the black grille on the front needs that yellow trim on the bowtie to make the black stand out, and on the rear it's the opposite. Nice work!
