But each to their own, I guess.

The rest of the car's not bad, though. The wheels just detract from the overall look.
I dont get the black wheel thing either. Very well put. Maybe at least a polished rim and black center?

I am sure the car will look cool if Ricks doing it

My first instinct was that it's too busy, but the more I look the more I like! It is overstated, but it balances nicely!

That spoiler is the dovetail spoiler from the Dale Jr. car. I'm still waiting on a rounded ducktail spoiler. The front end looks almost perfect though. Can't wait to see in person pictures.

I look forward to the finished product. Did you guys recomend the wheel to him or he picked it?

Also the 10.5 rear... could have he gone bigger than this? I am asking because when I am ready for a wheel upgrade I want to go as wide as possible.

He chose the wheel finish we just offered it and made it available.

We went with a 10.5 in the rear due to the fact that the widest tire we can mount on that is a 295 while still avoiding rub. We could have done an 11 but chose not too since it is a muscle car and didn't want the stretched tire look.

I really like this body kit
Per comments from others - not sure of purpose of rectangular openings on front spoiler - but very nice indeed

he put a non SS front end on it to get rid of the "mail slot" cause he said it didnt go with the overall design he was working on..when i got there he had one of the rare white camaros torn apart almost completely, thing barely had any miles on it at all.LOL.even torn apart the car was awesome..but that white car is a thing of the past now..if rick dont mind ill post pics of the torn down SS. but i dont want to post them if he doesnt want me too..ill send him a pm and ask if it is alright..so you know what he had then what he transformed it into. heres the couple pics i took of the torn down car..LOL. it was an incredible car..first white camaro i ever seen in person..too bad it was under these circumstances..and a couple pics of the old front end off the SS on my car..took 18 hours of solid driving not including resting, just 18 hours of straight road time to get it but its mine now..so i should have the only V6 on earth with the mail slit..but i could be wrong..LOL.

There alot of great wheels popping up for the Camaro, the AXIOMS are
among the best . High precision, light weight and strong. I'm very proud to be working with them on this project. A key to a successful SEMA build is to work with the best the aftermarket has to offer.

Will try and cover this more as it progresses.............RB

COR Forged,
Nice Wheels!

Also,
If someone could pass this on to Rick Bottom and team:
The rear-end is exactly what I would like to have!
1. double pipes
2. body matches the rest of the car
3. excellent design

Question - Of course the entire body kit looks great as 1 form all together, but I would like to know if there are any plans to create the rear piece that would marry up to a 2010 Camaro without GM ground effects (and of course independent of the rest of your body kit)?

Thanks - great job on the wheels and car.
Speed

added on to my question from above, will you be doing any other kind of spoilers Rick, like the one i described. not a dovetail inspired, but maybe something more high wing inspired but a little lower and more flush to the car???

great if you do start on something like that let me know. once your finished you can send me a pic of it and ill buy it from you, install it, and send you pics so that you have a show car to use to sell the spoiler. ill pay for shipping and everything you just let me know when you plan on starting and a round about price, and ill do whatever i can to help. and maybe send me a design rendering first that way you dont make something i dont like and then i dont buy it..LOL..j/k. but if you actually decide to do it let me know, and ill help with what i can..

That car is beautiful. It's exactly what I want! I've had a million cars with chrome rims and the whole black rim thing is just as tired, but black or black chrome with a vibrant color edge is the way to go!

Yes, wheels are driveway jewelry and saying that you can only have chrome rims is like saying you can only wear white gold. What about jade, platinum, onyx, etc?

That car is hot! Can't wait to see real life pics.

Tell me more about that spoiler you have in the rendering. Are yo going to make these? Very nice looking by the way. Not to wild,just enough to be tasteful and well balanced.
