Default Paint work on my SS

I wiped down the car and took a few pics of the progress so far on the exterior of my car. I had a Heritage grille installed and painted satin black, along with the LS7 Camaro Concept scheme in satin blac I added '69 SS emblems as well. I still have some work going on but I probably won't get it finished for the next few weeks. Then it'll be time to save up for more crap. Thanks to Will for the inspiration and for the paint shop reference. I'm not a photographer by any means and the lighting sucks but here's a few.

Looks really nice the only thing i will change is those orange stripes... IMO it will look much nicer with some black stripes or carbon fiber ones (or maybe no stripes at all!) and then get your wheels powerdercoated black with a white pin stripe. i think it will look much meaner and it will match your rear just some thoughts. but the car looks nice as it sits now!

Thanks man. I like the orange for contrast, although I'll be painting them on later with a different color orange. Eventually the rims will be swapped out for some custom forged wheels but that'll come later.

That looks beautiful, the blackouts made a HUGE difference. It looks sinister

Thanks guys.

I have a lot more left to do but it's time to make it faster now. Dark SS that black on black will look good I think.

They're 5". They come standard on the Magnaflow Comp axleback. I didn't know if I was going to like them or not but I love them. They fill up the hole perfect.
