Painting Simulated Rear Brake Ducts ???

Anyone planning on painting (flat black I would guess) the indented slots simulating rear brake ducts?

you'd be better off with vinyl decals instead of paint.

That's good advice...Might look, well, not good. Then you can take it off.

Negative Ghost Rider ... I don't like the "mail slot" being fake let alone making other things look real when they aren't ..

I'm going to try it using adhesive vinyl, carefully measured and cut prior to installing. No razor blade cutting on the car!

Ok, so I have a stupid question since this will be my first camaro. Are we going to be able to get most of what we saw for Sema at our GMPP dealer? The seats, wheels, the different colored instrumentation, etc....... I see all these really neat things and am just left wondering what it is we are going to be able to get or do to our camaro's. Can someone please educate me, thanks in advance.

OldTimer,

A lot of the stuff on the SEMA cars was custom as far as we know. But, I'm with you.

I absolutely hope they bring most of that stuff to the public. I really want the red guages... Among many others.

I'm sure a lot could be from GMPP, but there's going to be tons of aftermarket parts out there from many different companies. for some reason, I want to say that I thought most of that was GMPP. Didn't one of those video base it off of GMPP parts?.....like, this is what you can expect to get from us? In fact, I think everything we saw is made through GMPP. I can't think of a single part on any of the 4 cars that isn't GMPP.
