what to do with a black camaro....

ok so i dont know what to do to make my car stand out.....at first i was gonna do true flames.....then i started to think about it and thats what everyone does,,,,,so then i thought about doing some racing stripes with some crazy designs in them(h.r. gigar artwork) but now im not so sure.....anyone have any ideas? the whole reason i got my camaro in black was so i could black out EVERYTHING but now im not sure if i want it all blacked out or if i want something to make it stand out some....

hennesy LS9 FTW

I originally was going to go with the complete blackout as well. But I'm keeping small bits of chrome and some color in here. I'm going to keep it understated, but not boring.

Good luck! I know how you feel... so many choices

Paint black metallic stripes on it. People will say "wow and damn." Dark charcoal stripes would be good also. You Camaro will look black from a distance and when people get up close; they will see the TLC that you put into your car. You could have the edges of the stripes "ghosted" in a different shade. Now, you have to decide what stripe scheme. I plan on keepin my car, "ESS," red with red metallic stripes that don't stand out until people are up close. Post your pics when you're get your car striped. You would probably be the first one with this scheme. I snap my neck everytime I see a Black Camaro.

I think adding matte black stripes would be bad ass. If I had extra money to have them painted on right now, I would.

I say do deep hockey stripes like on the Hennessey Camaro. Either that or something really crazy like subtle digital camo.

Im not sure if GM still has it on their site but if i get a black camaro I would use the BLACK COMCEPT as a guidline for mine. Especially as far as the matte black hood goes, that is just bad ass

Black is awesome color to play around with.

I would do real carbon fiber hood and truck then paint it and leave the stripes bare carbon. Then I would play around with a Kandy Paint.
