BLOCKED THE SAIL AND QUARTERS PANELS WITH 180.GOING TO REPRIME THEN 320 IT THEN 600.USUALLY U HAVE TO PRIME IT ONCE AND 320 IT AND 600 BUT SENSE MY PAINT WAS IN BAD SHAPE ITS GOOD IDEA TO PRIME IT TWICE.

That looks like a lot of work. How much would your shop charge to do all that?

Stick with the base blue, the ice is a little too much if you ask me. That color is going to stand out enough, adding the ice takes away from the color. An SS camaro has enough aggression and curves from the factory that you don't need to go crazy with paint and graphics to make them look really clean.
