Just got my stripes painted

Hey guys and gals,

Been lurking here for quite some time. Picked up my 2SS Sept 30th and I have to say that this forum has been a wealth of information....made the 41/2 month wait just a tad bit easier!!

Made a few mods...Magnaflow axle back, Tint (5% rear 35% front),Diablo tuner, 2 12 inch subs, some minor interior additions and just recently had custom stripes painted on. Black stripes with a touch of silver pearl mixed in. Also had a razor thin red pin stripe applied where the black meets the SIM. I absolutley love how it turned out!! Really sets off the red SS badges. Not sure how the pics will turn out....I know there are alot of people banging their heads trying to figure out if the should paint their stripes or go with the decals. Hope this helps a little. Tell me what you think. Overall paint cost was around $1000.

Very Nice... really like the Camaro put on the rear. The red pinstriping is a perfect touch... who thought of it?

My idea.....had plenty of time to make my final decision (just under 5 months). Always makes you nervous when they start flinging paint around! Thankfully I am very pleased with the results. Thanks

Were there holes behind the rear bowtie, or was it held on with adesive? Nice job on the stripes. Especially like the gill accents.

Thanks again for the positive feedback. For those asking about the "CAMARO" plate on the rear...I think I ordered it from emblempros. Wasnt crazy about the mirrored finish so I had my painter paint it SIM. Yes, there were holes left by the bowtie removal, but letters were designed specifically to cover those two holes. They are attached by 3M tape...very happy with the quality and look of it (once I painted it).

Was at the paint shop every day....gotta say that was stressful!!! Watching them wet sand it and tear it apart made me very nervous. Now that its over I can look back and enjoy the process....but I would almost recommend not watching that closely!! Just make sure you are 100% behind your decision and jump in with both feet!!!
