Silver Ice Metallic

Has anyone seen some good looking silver ice metallic Camaros or have any pics? Trying to get some ideas. The color seems a little difficult to work with. I've already blacked out the tail lights(not the bezels), side markers, an bowties but still left the chrome outline around it. I feel like more needs to be done but I don't want to over do it with too much black. And with this color it seems easy to do too much. I was told to black out all the decals and leave no chrome like the bezels and the bowtie outline. I'm considering stripes but not so sure. Iv already ordered black niche circuit wheels and I feel adding black stripes will over do it. If y'all have any pics or suggestions I'd really appreciate it!

Sometimes black on silver can be too abrupt a contrast, but on occasion, can look very nice. That SIM a couple of posts up with the Hex vents looks menacing as hell. I went cyber grey against my SIM. Goes well with the splitter, rockers, grill, and rear valence which are finished similarly in a textured hue of grey.

I knew someone on here would have the right words lol. That's exactly what I was trying to say. I'm still going to stick with black, but use just enough detail to where it won't stand out. It would have to make someone look twice and say "oh ok, I see what he did." type of thing lol. Just need to gather ideas.

A set of ghost painted side markers from AAC really clean up the car's look.
