Give me your opinion!

So, I think I've finally come up with what I want my final, completed camaro to look like, and I want your opinion on it. A simple Good/Bad is enough for this poll, but please give a more detailed reply if you wish.

P.S. - Credit must also be given to bret03 in this thread for doing the original hood stripes and wheels that I based the rest off of...

I agree. nix the hood pins and it'd be done. rims aren't my favorite but if they're yours, then they're 10/10.

Well, honestly the wheels look better in person... They just kinda flattened a little when they got chopped on... Heres a pick of the wheels on their own.

P.S. - Like this, but painted black.

86 the hood pins. Would need to see a better chop of the wheels on the car (no disrespect to the person making the original...none at all). But, the wheels in the pic don't really look too much like the ones in the Impy pic.

Looks good, but like others have stated it's all personal taste as the car is your baby and yours to chose on modding.
I have a silver '97 Z-28 and wanted to go with the black rims / chrome lip, but looked odd to me (ricer, no offense, just my personal opinion). I went with a set of chrome C6 18's and made the car as a whole stand out and really improved upon the apperance. I like the hood pin idea as well as painting the calipers. Each to their own and mod it as YOU see fit, NOT what others think. Drive it like ya stole it and keep the faith. ")

As someone else stated, it's a matter of opinion.

I'd say in general it looks good.

(Ok, WHAT are hood pins? I mean what are they for? I see them in the pic.)

Matter of opinion here- Lose the hood pins and stripes (I'm just a complete stripe hater). I like the wheels, but in the silver that you posted seperately, not the black.

It's the new camaro; of course I like it...



Sorry I'm not much help... the only thing I'd change would also be the hood pins... never really got those.

The only person you need to please is yourself. Everyone has their opinion on what looks good and what dosen't. I usually try several looks before deciding on a final outcome.
My theory is "Never change anything that you cannot change back. You may regret it later"

P.S. I have found out that it will always look different on the real car....

I know its all about what I like - thats why this is going to be my car. I also plan on getting a v6 even though I could probably pull off buying a base+RS V8. Just personal taste. I like the hood pins, but I will agree that, like the wheels, they don't look 100% amazing after being chopped on. Heres a better pic of them on a second gen camaro.

Yup. lose the pins and it's nice. The rims are also questionable but i feel like any black rim with chrome lip would look good lol
