I hope your right and that its just a old SS or something cuz I dont want them to bring back ABM. If someone wanted it they should have orignally ordered it when the color was available. I know were talking about the Z28 but I dont want them too.

Need your opinions

So the body shop will have to paint my new rear bumper next week and it got me thinking about the front. (I plan on posting about my accident sometime this weekend) That post is here.

I was looking at the T2 and T3 bumpers and it has given me some ideas. I don't want to actually get one of these bumpers because it's too new skeuwl for me and I am trying to keep her more retro. I thought about getting the inserts and putting them in, cheaper that way, cause I do like them but it doesn't fit my theme.

I am thinking of painting the front area, between the headlights satin/flat black ala the LS7. But where I need y'alls help is the lower splitter area.

So, should I paint the splitter ABM, red arrows, and keep the insets, green arrows, black?

OR Keep the splitter black and paint the bumper black between the purple lines where the purple arrows are kinda like the T2 bumper?

Or just leave it alone and just paint in between the headlights ala LS7 and keep the splitter black.

So three options for ya. Please share your opinions.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Maybe these will help. I don't think this was one of your options, but my choice may be black grille, black bumper, and black splitter.

I like the 6th one venom photoshopped.

I'm a little pissed. Washed my car last night around 4-5pm, flayed and waxed part that needed it. I wake up to go to work and now it's raining :( now I gotta wash it again on Thursday for the OC Auto Show on Friday....grrrrr.

Isn't that just the luck huh? At least it will look twice as good since you washed it twice, right? He he he.

So I have narrowed it down to these two and am really leaning towards the top one. I think it looks better when standing in front of it looking down as opposed to kneeling down and looking at it, like these photos. Besides, I love my color and the more of it the better.

I like what Venom did with the others but they look good if I was going towards the T2/T3 look. I was real tempted to go with his 6th pick as well but I don't think it goes with my retro look. Thanks again Venom for your help.

Now I need to make up my mind on whether or not to make the scoops functional by cutting the holes in the bottom of the bumper for more airflow into the radiator area. I may wait and cut holes once I get a CAI and use it for an air scoop. But cutting up the bumper scares me. Just drilling the holes for the splitter made me cringe.

Lower of the two, for me. I like the way the black breaks up the color. Good luck with your decision!

ABM RIP.....one color that should never have gotten dropped...this was my former color choice, once it was eliminated, i went to syn green, another great retro/custom type color...i think the ABM should be brought back on the verts, and Z28 as well..we can wish..it had only about 3% pentitration i was told...still one drop dead color IMO....
