Whatever you paid for the instrument cluster bezel was well worth it. Mine was a pain in the rear to tape and paint!

Yeah I couldn't find myself doing all the painting and taping, I was like I'd rather pay them to do it right, then to mess it up and waste my time lol.
BTW: You did an amazing job with yours I love it, almost exact opposite then mine lol.

Thanks, It was a combo effort between myself and my husband. I sanded and taped, he painted. I'm very happy with the end result, though I will say, I think we painted it three times, maybe, at least twice, lol.

Lol well then let me rephrase that, good job guys lol. And well in the end it doesn't matter how many times you did it, it's all about the finished product, while like I said looks great, and you can say you did it yourself, I on the other hand I give credit to Lupe (overhaulengines) for doing mine lol.

Finally installed the CAI, inc. intake on my ss. Thanks to dad we were able to paint the intake tube, I was gonna paint the air box as well but I thought leaving it metallic would match the engine cover better. Also got the fuse box cover on as well. Here's before and after pics:

Please stop! Having everything green is not cool. Look at a Lamborghini or a Porsche. People don't paint everything in a Ferrari ALL red. It's about contrast and colors and materials that look good together.

Thank God, a voice of reason. I thought I was the only one who thinks some might be getting a bit carried away with the whole "custom" thing. I mean it's your car(s) in the end so have at it, but the ONLY cars that have doors that open vertically should be made in Italy & have a bull on the hood, and please realize that there are some of us who really don't care what knob you had painted yesterday. I mean no offense with my comments, and it isn't limited to just the SGM crowd either, but it's been on my mind this week having watched some of the most amazing (some more so than others) box stock, and customs from mild to wild be sold at Barrett Jackson.

There is a reason guys like Chip Foose are the designers and we are the drivers. It's called being subtle, elegant & classy, oh and the most important thing, talented. I personally think the Camaro team did a great job on the car & it should be left as they made it, but that's just me, different strokes I guess.

To each his/her own. I happen to really enjoy looking at the work that has been done to the cars here. I am slowly changing and adding some green under the hood and inside...I like it. If you don't - that is cool too!

As toesuf94 stated already, to each their own.
I respect your honesty and also you decision on how you like it, your car or not. There's no offense taken on this side, but I honestly love the car there's no doubt about it, with or without my custom work put into it.
In my point of view, I have the LS so I didn't like the rims, bowties and interior, so I switched it out into my own. I'm different I guess you can say and I'd rather have my own one-of-a-kind Caramro instead of having an identical LS with another owner, there is nothing wrong with that but it just isn't me, I was always different and always will be.
I don't expect each every person to like it, it's impossible, but in the end as you said it's "YOUR" car and in the end it only matters if YOU like it.

Agreed! Do what you want. If you like it, then all is well!!

What I would stop doing is posting on here if this is the reaction...

Its MY car, and I will paint it 100% pink, green and purple if I wish...

Its ok that you dont like it... To each his own... But seriously, peoples tastes are all different...

I dont like the black/green trim, but its HIS car... If he likes it, who am I to tell him to stop?
