I need opinions FAST---What do you think about my idea for hash marks and gills?

ok gang-- so I finally got my camaro-- but have been too sick to drive or enjoy it!

but I have an appointment on thursday to have the ABL installed across the dash and some other things-- but I am stuck. I love the idea of my hash marks and side gill decals-- on both sides of my car. My mom and dad also love it. My husband however hates the idea! LOL but it's my car and I can do what I would like to it--- so I need opinions quick!!!!

Please help me--- what do you think of these? My car is the Imperial Blue Metallic and the hash marks and gills are a dark silver. And its either both the hash and gills or none. Thanks!!!!!!

It's your opinion and your car like you said. So, do you really want someone elses opinion? If so here you go. I think with the fender stripes people will say it's a challenger knock off. The gill stripes I could take or leave .

Nessa looks great! Mine is sitting in Memphis so we will probably bump into each other over the next couple of weeks. I was a fan of the chrome gill inserts but am going only with the 67 vflag emblem.

For the gills, should look really good However, if I did the hash marks, it would be driver side only

Hash marks are awesome and on IBM I think silver ones will pop very nice.

Talking

Not everyone will agree on this, but it is what you like that counts. So if you like it, go for it. And if I read the thread right you are not painting them on, so you can remove them if you do not like the way it turns out. Just post some pics when it completed.

For another reference for you, I did hashmarks, only on the passenger side. They are silver on CGM. I wanted them a little wider than the ones you posted above, so I had them custom made.

Hash marks are awesome on the drivers side. Had them on my Grand Sport Vette. I'm going to do it, was thinking about ghost hash marks. Not a fan of gills. Go for what you like.

Here is the best way to ask this question. A year from now when you walk out to get into your car are you going to think to yourself:

Man!! I really wish I had gotten those hash marks and gills..

If the answer is yes .... get'em. :-)
