Stripes Removed

Tonight I got rid of the non matching stripes off my new Camaro, spent a bit of time with a heat gun on low and they came off no problems. Cleaned up any residue with a spot of WD40 and then cleaned up and clayed and you can hardly tell they were ever there!

Yeah, I like it better. The pure lines of the car are tough enough, without needing make-up.

Yeah I'm glad I did it! I have a bowtie delete for the front grill somewhere between here and California that's probably the next mod, then probably power coating the rims.

Sinister, but a good sinister. I notice you have an RS badge on the boot, but you don't appear to have the halo headlights, or the 20" wheels, normally found on an RS.

Yeah that is odd, there's an RS badge on the inside near the steering column but also no HUD which I thought was standard on an RS? Wondering if it's just badged up to look like an RS. Any other obvious things I can check?

Okay so the only RS things I seem to have are the spoiler and badges which could be easily aftermarket.

RS has the rail guards on the roof painted as well.

Also RS has HID Halo lights, 20" rims, darker tinted taillights that look black on the inside vs. RED

Ahh then I think mine must be just bearing an RS badge and spoiler. But now I really want HID's!

Oh for sure, I'm not hugely bothered by that, I got it at a bargain price really. 20's would be awesome and the HID's do look nice, but they're probably things I'd change myself anyway.

HUD is not Too Gun TBH
I hope Google Glasses will surpass HUD big time ! :-)
RIMs can be in the eye of the beholder too ...
