Alternative Camaro Stripe Option

All,

Here is some pictures of my newly painted Yellow 2SS/RS. I wanted the black stripes on it but didn't want the factory stickers. As we talked about the options, we settled on doing one wide black stripe and turning it into flames.

Man, I love this car!

Good thinking on turning the stripe into a flame. That's different and I like it.

The stripe/flame is airbrushed on after the lower black was sprayed on. The paint was a mix the painter came up with using House of Kolor paints. It wasn't very expensive and would have been close to the same price as the factory vinyl stickers except I had the entire hood and truck clear coated so there was no seam at the paint edge.

I looked up the Foose Chevelle and here is a picture. It is straight painted flames and you can find it on the Chevy High Performance website.

I would think he could do it with red. His website is: http://swrcustoms.com/home.nxg and you can email him with what you want.
