I bought a rear panel from a member on this site and went to a local body shop to get a paint quote today. When i told the dude what i wanted done, he just about laughed in my face. He asked, "now why in the world would you want to do a thing like that..?" I wanted to ask him why in the hell is he working at a body shop and does he treat every customer like this.? but, i held my tongue and his comments have caused me to briefly rethink my appearance mod. What do you guys think? Should i continue with the mod or is it a dumb waste of my time and money? Most of you guys understand where the idea of the mod has come from and alot of you have pretty decent taste. Shoot me your opinions...

definitely do it. pewter is the color it looks best on! especially to compliment the black wheels that you already have!

If it was my car i wouldnt do it. I never did like the way the berger panel looks, but if you like it do it. Its your car make it look how you want it to look.

alright guys i did it. i kept my oem pewter one in case i ever sell the car or grow sick of the black panel. i like the way it looks. i went with oem gloss/clear coated black. ill post some pics up later on tonight.

thanks everyone for your input!

I did it and I get mixed reviews on my red Z but I love it and so do a lot of other people. I need to put some stainless inlays in there and an emblem of some sort so it doesnt look unfinished

In my opinion it makes you look like you dont have the money to paint your car. It looks tacky if you dont black out the taillights to match it. Kinda makes me think of the ricers driving around with unpainted carbon fiber hoods that totally dont match the rest of their car. I'm not bashing though, I admit I have a Wings West commando wing on my TA. I love the way it looks on my car but all my Camaro driving friends tell me its rice...

If you like the looks of it, I say go for it. Don't let some guy at the paint shop change your mind. I personally think it looks good on almost any color car, although I wouldn't do the mod on a black car :lol:

Do you want the mod on your car? If so do it I did mine back in 2002 and it looks just as it did back then.

I think it looks great on pewter.

Here are a few pics of mine :) I had mine painted at my local bodyshop for $50

I would do it. It looks really good on a pewter car. I have been thinking about doing mine also. I think it would look best with gloss black.

Looks good on Pewter. To hhell with that shop though. If the guy thinks your project is dumb he is not going to put his best effort into it.

Go somewhere else and get it dont. Then go do a burn out in his parking lot!

I did mine gloss black and kept my other panel painted Pewter in case I didn't like it. Gloss is good IMO it matches the roof and you can wax it. Painted mine 2 yrs ago with a spray can and spray clear and quite a bit of polishing. I think it makes the back of the car look so much meaner. People think the back looks good and don't know why, and when I tell them it is painted black they realize that is what sets it apart.

i'm kinda thinking of doing something like this... how did you go about smoothing out the "CAMARO" indentations? fill it with body filler or a fiberglass filler? i figured i'd scuff it, or sand it, and lay down some fiberglass and then sand it smooth. i'm also thinking it would be cool to get rid of the rear lock cylinder because i don't use it, i just use the remote... is there a way to get rid of the lock, or at least the part of it that sticks through the panel?

Most of you guys understand where the idea of the mod
My guess on why there is a blackened panel on the Berger Camaros is because back in the late 60's- early 70's all big block Super Sports always had a blackened panel of some type, whether painted on, like the 1967 Camaro SS or Impala SS or a black trim piece installed like the 1970 Chevelle SS or Monte Carlo SS. I can assume then Berger took the idea and applied it to the rear of his cars even though the engines are big inch small blocks.

I did it 'cuz I like the way it looks.

I am not a fan of berger panel. But I do think it looks better than the CETA on the TA.

zdriven28
04-22-2007, 05:32 PM
I think if you go ahead with it you should leave the "CAMARO" lettering the same color as your car. It looks better than the whole panel being black, it just doesnt look right.

The flat black panel represented a big block under the hood back in the day.

I did mine in ultra-flat rattle can without primer (never painted anything before), looks more charcoal than black. dark-greyish. if you like that, go for the ultra flat black. i think i'm going to redo mine this summer and do gloss black.

In order to be called a Berger panel, it has to be black. If it is not black, it is just a rear panel!

I was thinkin of doing it to my red SS... I'm not really sure myself about it, just seems like one of those things some people can pull off and some people can't. One question thats kinda off topic, but are the 98-02 SS spoilers different in size or anything compared to the 96-97 SS spoilers? Besides the little fins in the middle.

shouldnt be too hard to understnad what im talking about but heres what im doin to the LE to match this berger panel style...
i went ahead and bought two compltely new ds and ps mirrors...not painted so they are still black...the SS is a vert so this black detail sticks out...on the hood, there is an insert infront of the scoop, same black as mirrors...so now all i have to do is buy a tail light panel and the lil project is finsihed

He should have been the one to bite his tongue, not you. I think it looks good, but it only matters what you think since it's your car.

While it is your car, I think the Berger Panel looks good on nearly any 4th Gen Camaro. Especially if it's an extra panel so you can switch back if you get tired of it. I decided not to be able to do that, as I started with what was at the time an extra panel and now needs to go back on my 95 V6 so I can give the car whole to a friend in return for him basically doing all the work on my Z28. However, after reviewing some old pics of my Z, I honestly like it much much better with the Berger Panel than without.

i guess i kinda borrowed/stole ArOck's idea... i filled in the back panel with body filler, drilled the holes for the Z/28 emblem, and then primed it. i would have painted it too, but i no longer had the time (or the place where i primed it) so i took it to my community college where i took auto body repair, so they hooked me up with a cheap (but quality) paint job, both on the berger panel and on my spoiler...
i have not done it yet, but i plan on mounting the "Camaro" emblems ('69 style) on my fenders, where the plastic Z28 emblems were.

imo, whether or not you do the berger mod depends on the "theme" you are following in relation to your cars appearance. as long as it goes together well with the rest of your car i'd probably do it! it can be a really cool mod imo and would definitely set your car apart from the rest. and if you get sick of it you can always change it later!

This is one of the only guys who knows.. The rear panel SHOULD be Satin Black.. Thats the way they did it in 67-69.. (my dads 68 bigblock 396/375hp camaro is an original paint car) - done that way.. My 70 Bigblock 396/350hp camaro is satin black, the way they came from factory.. If you going to do the burger panel, do it right, and paint it satin black the way they came (not flat black, not gloss black) Ive bought an ss panel and plan on painting it this summer.. ID do it if i were you, but Satin Black.. lol

What about carbon fiber Berger panels? I kinda like that in some situations. My car's white and I'd like to have carbon fiber accents on it. Not like a hood or anything, but something like a front grille, emblems, and berger in cf would be pretty cool. I've never seen the bergers anywhere in cf, but RK Sport sells a grille.

Finally, someone who understands the historical aspect behind painting the tail panel semi black. You're not replicating the look of the GMMG uniquely, you're representing the look of the original car... the original Super Sport.

Send me photos of the '68 and the '70 please... pm sent.

Thanks,
Dan

It's your car, do what makes you happy.

I wouldn't do it myself, however. The Berger panel mod is way overplayed IMO. It's no longer a mod to make you stand out, it's now a mod to blend in with the masses.

thanks will, Hey my car sticks out here in hawaii. I believe I am the only black camaro "4th gen" with it done. Also will be the second person to have the sunoco hood. Who can say that about the state they live in.

I have said it once and I'll say it a million times....I LOVE THE BERGER mod on just about every Camaro I've seen it on! I never get tired of seeing it.

SO I think you know what my vote is....

My SS is dark blue and i did a Berger panel and stripes all in black. Not overpowering but in sun light it stands out a bit. When i get a black SS the panel will be satin black. The Earnhardt SS has the satin black and looks great. I say do it, you can change it latter.

i think all camaros and TA's should have the Berger/CETA mod done. but black out your taillights with it. it looks cheap without them

Dude, did mine oin satin black and love it. Flat was to flat and gloss didnt look right. Dont pay $100, all ya gatta do is sand, clean, prime, and paint as many coats as you want. Anyway, hell yes on the Berger, then some stainless inserts to finish it off.
