Another Camaro dipped

Havent changed my car color in a few months and I do have another dip planned in the next week or two on my Camaro. In the meantime was able to get my buddy's 1le knocked out. May not be for everyone but I think the color is a pretty bad azz color. It even matches his other toy. Even more fitting he is military too. Pretty cool overall IMO. The red and black was when we just recently did the rims and hood vent in Carbon Red for kicks.

Color used is called Mil Spec Green from HaloEfx

sorry pics are so big

Looks like you did a great job. Although normally not a fan of the new color (saw enough of it during my 29 year career lol), IMO its a big improvement over his previous color scheme/combo

Why do people apologize that the pic is big? That's a good thing. Cool color especially when u said he's military. I like the red rims and vents too.

if you've never done before and don't have much experience with spraying dip or paint or anything similar. Ehhh you can do it but it wont be perfect your first time. Something like this with a solid color can be done fairly well though if you pick up on things like this quickly.

funny thing was I suggested the camo tan color and he said no because it reminded him too much of work. I guess the green not so much lol. pretty cool in the end though when you factor in the background

Do I understand this correctly? You change paint on your Camaro like other people change underwear? Why?

The only time I have ever played around with dip is on my emblems and I did my strut brace as well as the trim around the instrument cluster.

Nice job OP, pictures look great. I'm still getting used to the flat car color and shiny hood, opposite 1LE kinda look. That is creative!
