^ I saw that "Overhaulin'" episode. That car was beautiful when it was done.

I'm trying to DVR all episodes so that I can. I like the old school stripe schemes and hope to do something similar on my Camaro if I find the right vendor. I'm looking at
www.ridergraphix.com for inspiration. Theey've done old school stripes for the Challenger, Mustang and Charger.

Walt, here's some Photoshops of striping, per request! As I mentioned to you via PM, they aren't perfect, but willl hopefully be helpful as you decide on which way to go.

If anyone's wondering why the rally stripes don't go to end of hood on previous photos, I was trying to leave extra space for the outer pin-stripe, like the factory one has....but I pretty much butchered that attempt, as you can see below....

Zebra, If you've seen Derbychamp's other work with Miss Turtlewax, you'll know why I asked him to try adding stripes to the ABM thread here...His work makes the ABM shine even more! Thanks Kent for your work here!


PS I think you've made my decision on striping a WHOLE lot tougher, but I'm getting closer!(New Avitar!)

As far as "old school" look, I'm thinking of adding these V-flag emblems under the camaro on the side fender..they were on the 67 model only...seemed very popular in the 60's when I grew up, er older...

As of last Thursday, I have my 2ss/rs ordered in ABM w/White Stripes. But while on our way home from Sunday brunch this morning I swung by our local Chevy dealer to take a look at an Aqua Blue Metallic HHR they have on the lot. It is overcast and rainy today and I had not yet seen this color under this type of lighting. I was VERY disappointed in what I saw. Under bright sunlight the metal-flake in this paint really makes this color blue "Pop". But under these overcast skies the color is actually quite flat and more Turquoise in appearance. Frankly, IMO it isn't very attractive at all. If you have not seen this color in person under every type of lighting, be sure you make time to do so. I'd hate to see anyone pay big $$ for a car and then not like the way it looks on a cloudy day.

I was so disappointed that I will be calling my dealer tomorrow and changing my color choice before my order gets pulled by GM. Now I need to decide if I want to wait for the CGM (what I originally fell in love with) or go with the "Can't go wrong" Black on Black w/Cyber gray stripes. Or theres always the Sexy Silver Ice....................... AUGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! I thought I was done with this!!!!
