it's not bad at all, I can see fine out the back window, the louvers are thin so all you see are thin black lines on the rear window

How hard are those SIM door panels to put in? That looks really nice SVT. Got any pics of the mirrors at night? Are they turn signals, markers, both??? Look good!

Eibachs should be here today or tomorrow. SIM goin' down 1.5"

Springs were $218 from autoanything.com. The fest was the first place I've seen a lowered Camaro other than pictures. They look better dropped a little IMO.

In the vendor area, someone had the LED mirrors for sale. Here's the thread link:

Im getting my SIM in a few weeks.

Big question: do the gill fades and outlines look cheap and like a sticker on your car? I like the way they look, but I dont know how I feel about having stickers on my car. In your opinion, can you tell they are decals in person?

Depends. Some look like a piece of electrical tape, some look like a fade and better. I like the thin ones that go around the contour of the gills. But I don't go stickers and that's just me. If I do something there it will be airbrushed same color as my stripes (painted too).

When you get your car post up!!! Welcome!

I agree... I put the fades on, and in person it is just a sticker on your car. Although, in pictures it is a different thing entirely.

But I took 'em off... just couldn't get over the idea they were stickers. I've never seen the thin ones in person, so I don't know if those are better. I've decided to keep the cosmetics stock... it's a fine lookin' Camaro, as is.

Edit: I already have the best color available!

(Note: I do agree it needs to lose 1-2 inches... it make the Camaro snarl)

A couple minor upgrades

Hello,

Here's a few pictures of my latest upgrades. Nothing major, but I got 35% window tint all the way around, gill-slit decals, and "stealt" mud-flaps.

I changed the whole door panel for 2SS door panels, got the pair for $180 brand new, way cheaper and easier to install than the inserts sold by GM, and the silver is pretty close match to the outside paint

I'll take some pics of the mirros tonight.

I had the gill fades stickers and they do look cheap, (this is just my opinion)

I finally broke down and got the defenderworx gill inserts, they look a 100 times better

jmelchio gill slit inserts are the best looking ones out there to me.

Well, welcome home mcotton!

I gotta take my car back to the painter. Don't know how the stripes can begin to come off of the car, but they are! Painter is gonna redo them for me. So the drop won't be until probably next week. But I'm gonna take pictures before and after so you guys will know what Eibach will do for you.

On the nose they're peeling. You can feel them coming up and it looks like the paint is cracking. It's going in on Monday. I didn't even notice it until I was at a shop getting the windows tinted. His shop is lit up like daytime and you can see everything on, or in, your paint.

Got some trash in the clear coat and the stripes aren't holding. We'll see. I got my fingers crossed!

Saw you with E.T. in the regional forum LMAO!!!!
