Yes, red pinstripe. The car will be mostly put back together, the pinstripe applied by a talented by-hand pinstriper, then two more coats of clear on top of everything. This should get done on Monday.

Bowties will be painted black to match the top (including chrome), and will also have a red pinstripe. Tail lights will be sprayed to darken them, and tail light bezels will be tinted as well to produce a black chrome. If the black chrome doesn't look great, then they will be painted satin/matte black. SS emblems will stay red, but the chrome will be painted black. Side Camaro emblems will not be going back on (at least for now). That should eliminate all of the chrome.

The black paint also has a red metallic flake in it. Can't see it until you look at it in the sun.

Thanks again 4RD H8R for staying late to make sure this gets done right!
