Couple new pieces from this week...

Did some trim work last week and felt it was time to get some of my own work finished up on the inside of the car.

It's always lacked something to pull the blue to the silver and I think I might have finally got it!

Let me know what ya think....

We try... I think that you have to drive and know the car a little to help folks make decisions on what works and what doesn't when it comes to aftermarket parts. Doesn't make sense to say "oh this catback or that header sounds awesome" when you never actually drive the part much.

Plus what the heck else would anybody rather drive than a Camaro!

Thanks Angel!

Shot a couple pics today while I was trying to catch a Thunderhead. Figured now was as good a time as any to show off some of the recent paint I'd done on it to give it a newer, updated look for the Show Season.

Hope that you enjoy!

If I wasn't so scared to get hit again in rush hour traffic I'd be driving mine everyday! Haha...

Love the new pics, Ivan!

Thanks Pyro!! Making room for things and adding some polished Rx Items this week.

Painted the AFE CAI after seeing one that we had done for a customer. Really gave it more definitition and charactor. Hoping to do a lighter color for somebody next....perhaps Summit White!

Really hoping to bring it together a little more.....appreciate the comments.

You gotta see it in person Chris! That back end looks so white in pics. used the same silver pearl from the side stripes. I love it and hate myself for not doing it sooner.

Hit the mailslot with it too....now it's not just another black Camaro!

Appreciate the comment sir!
