Unique paint on IOM SS - Enjoy!

Ok well new paint,Stage 1 for the cosmetics is done the rest will come this winter. Like some, I have chosen to leave off the GFX chin piece off after much noodling just like it better without. The diecast was also painted to match. Enjoy!

Looks awesome...I would remove the chrome around the taillights with the blackout like that though.

Thanks, after seeing all the rally stripes (I originally wanted) I chose something different to make it stand out. The sun doesn't seem to want to play, but the black fads out more into the IOM in UV.

Ya, I know most like them taken out, but trying something different. Very easy fix if I want to change it.

it's gonna be really hard to find a well executed paint job, not matter what style you go with, that looks bad on an IOM Camaro...

To each his own, I feel that rally stripes are over done (no offense) and with three IOM SS cars in town I wanted something different. Not into the hockey stripes as much and the original bumblebee stripe is hard to pull off with the pointed nose and wasn't feeling it. Went to a cruise in last night for a show today and got a ton of not there today due to the weather. Your the first to not like it, but probably not the last no big deal I don't take it personal always take the good with the bad.

to each their own

this is what I did to my IOM. love your take on the " be different" approach. All of a sudden their were 5 IOM's in town. Pearl white modified "RS" stripe, painted grills, rear fascia and light bezels.

You misunderstood him because of his typo and jumble of double negatives. He means it will be hard to find an IOM Camaro that looks bad (as long as it's well executed). He means he likes it!
