Default Air Brushed "fins" ?? LIKE?

hey fellas, I Purchased my camaro in october of this year.. I love it BTW.. ANYWAYS, the previous owner had the car painted in march of this year and got what i think are "FINS" airbrushed on the sides.. Maybe to make it look like a shark?? lol ANYWAYS i want your opinion on it if it looks good or not.. Some say it looks good some say its diffrent or just "dumb"...... here are a few pics..

im on the fence, i think though if i may, it nees something more, if you didnt tell us they where fins i wouldnt have known. There more like gils, (i think thats what u meant) but something more needs to be added maybe bigger or more detail.something, but i admire you effort for giving it a shot!!

The car itself looks great, but the gills have got to go IMO

Yeah i meant gils.. Im not fimiliar with aquatic life but 1st thing that came to mind was "fins" lol Yeah thats exactly my point on it aswell.. i dont know if i like it or not, its not enough detail or anything to like it but its diffrent so im not sure if i should go along with it or not or just have my nieghbor (auto body ) repaint the sides

put some shark teeth, classic WWII fighter plane style, coming off of the grill and it might look good. Right now it just looks like an incomplete graphic. It catches my eye, but not in a good way. Either way I would just leave it until you know exactly want you want to do, no point in covering it up if it's just going to be re-painted again later.

It's not a shark its a catfish, sorry if your disappointed. Very unique therefore i kinda like it but i do agree the gills could be done better and it would actually look good.

^ What? The idea of a shark was but a catfish is
Dude you bought a catfish(almost literally) and probably one of the most unique ones out there so rock it and be different. I say go ahead and turn them headlights into some eyes.

i think your right about the scheme the previous owner what doing, the camaro looks ok but maybe a different hood to go with the gills.

HAHAHA CATFISH!!!! i think it looks cool because it's so funny on an ls1 camaro, and its not super obnoxious and doesn't ruin the overall look of the car but it's enough to be noticed and if you make the car REALLY FAST it would be even better!

Haha you guys funny lol Dang well some say be diffrent and pick up on it and some say get rid of it... hmmm well tell ya what, im going to keep it for a while and do maitenance 1st and buy "goodies" THEN later down the road when i have nothing else in mind for her ill pick up on it and make it "better" OR just get the sides re-done.... Over all i hope we can all agree that it doesnt look "horrible" enough for me to actually have to take it off right away.. i mean its not like the car has faded/cracked paint... I think its a beatiful car BUT will pay more attention to it in the future and get it fixed!! ... EH????? ....

**HOWEVER! any more opinions are greatly appreciated! So comment away!.. hate on, pick up on, make fun of, like it, or watever i still love my camaro and this is why im posting lol THANKS FELLAS

Kinda cool in the close up picture, but as a whole doesn't flow at all.

Tie it up with more graphics if you want to be different or take it back to stock and be like everyone else.

Are you going to leave your spoiler black?
Would look much better with a berger panel and black roofbar, thats what I did/am doing.





Not trying to thread hijack, but I think it could have potential.

OH! You have the "runner/stinger" shaped things painted that go into the spoiler, can you show me more pictures of those?

I was planning to do that as well, so it doesn't look like the spoiler is out of place.

I think it would've looked better if they had airbrushed them with more detail and de-molded before it was painted. Right now it just looks like paint lines whereas there should be an actual shape and definition to it.

I like the idea but the execution wasn't all that great, really clean car though bro.
