Calling PHOTOCHOPPERS for ideas for a paint scheme. Anyone care to share ideas?
So here's the story...I'm getting my camaro sometime in the near future (possibly as soon as 6 moonths or sooner), and I'm trying to come up with a unique, but not over the top paint job.

The rally stripes are nice, the hockey stick and hood stripe are nice as well, but I want to stand out. I'm looking for anyone creative that would like to toss ideas around and help me get inspiration as to what my car will look like.


Car's main color will be IBM.
Alternate color for stripes/pinstripes/design will be CGM.

I'm open to other colors, but I will only be looking at designs at this point and if you can render the car in the color combination above, it'll help me decide on which I like best.

I appreciate anyone's ideas and hope to find a concept to put my own twist on it and have it painted.

Thanks for browsing!

No takers? =(

Anyways, Here's what I did in all of 10 minutes for the first thing that popped in my head. Anyone care to share their ideas?

Hell, that looks pretty good!

Btw, when ordering mine I got to see a IBM with silver stripes. I have to say those two colors looked good with each other.

Thanks for the compliment, and I know. IBM is such a nice color. That's why I want people's ideas. I don't want to do normal stripes, but I don't know what looks good.

Anyone care to lighten up the colors a bit? I think the CGM needs to be a bit lighter and the IBM might need to be a shade or two lighter as well.

Looks like it could turn out really cool. My opinion, I'd forgo doing the stripe on the roof. Heck...I might forgo doing any stripes and just keeping it two tone so as not to keep it so busy. However, if you did anything, I DO like this design....but would probably only do it on the hood...

Here's a couple versions I did tonight. The colors are closer to the actual colors. I did one with and one without the stripe on the roof. I might end up with just IBM with the CGM stripes, but we'll see.

I'm digging the no roof stripe one more. Have you given any thought to a pin stripe? silver ice metallic to separate the two colors? Shoot...maybe that would be better (with the pin) if it were just top/bottom paint and no stripes.

Maybe we could get someone to do one like Pink's...with a two tone top bottom and a SIM pin. I know you probably don't want it, but I'm just

Better on the CGM, though...more realistic IMO.

SIM pinstripe. I just don't feel like making that right now in photoshop. =P
but yes, it would be a small pinstripe separating the two tone and also around the stripe
kinda like your blue around the SIM on your car.
