    new mods on the Z28 "pics"

    Wet sanded and buffed the paint, tinted the windows, and sprayed the tail lights. added 1969 style Z/28 emblem to rear spoiler.

    What do you guys think of the 69 camaro badges and Z/28 emblems should I keep em or loose em? and my next project is to address the tail pipe tips.

    It looks good as is. I would personally lose the emblems though, they are good emblems, but they stand out too much IMO. I would also do something about the amber turnsignals and the exhaust tips sag down wayyy too much IMO. Just ideas though, its a sharp Camaro.

    I was hoping you would give me an honest opinion, the tail pipes defiantly have to be addressed but I am not sure what to put on the car it has a full SLP system from the long tubes all the way through the Y pipe bit it has an EDELBROCK muffler, I will most likely re do the tail pipes and go with some SLP tips.

    And the emblems are something I threw at the blue car, I have a full set of the LSx emblems.

    I like the placement of the Z28 emblem on the spoiler. Its different/unique and something I think would grow on me. It doesn't look out of place, just a clever idea/placement.

    Nice car man! Personally i would put the Z28 where the stock ones are, bottom right of the Berger panel. Definitely do something about the front amber, clear lenses or covers. For your exhaust why not just go to your local speed shop and check out tips? Plenty of different styles to choose and since there not on the car you can powder coat them any color you want easy. Also, just curious, what grill do you have? I cant see the front. Thats just my 2 cents by the way, i think your car is still nice the way you have it.

    Nice grill! I'm dieing to get that but I'm short on cash and i cant find anyone who wants to trade me one for my radio. Also i cant post my radio in the for sale section so that's causing a speed bump as well, lol.

    Your taillights came out very good. What is that? Just nightshade and clear coat?

    GOOD ONE, no there not pink but if I had my choice it would have hockey stick stripes ,but the previous owner painted silver stripes on the hood and nose, so they can't be peeled off.
    So I decided to cover them with black vinyl ,but I left thr silver around the stripe and put a red stripe in the middle of the silver and then surrounded it by 2 small metallic blue stripes.

    I'm a firm believer that less is better. The car looks good, the decal on the wing is different so for that reason I do like it. Not crazy about the emblem on the grill up front, the camaro badges on the side look pretty good. Cudo's for comming up with that. Overall the car looks very good, nice taste.

    x2 on what Y2K said, i think ya should have done the ambers and side markers when ya did the tail lights. I think i would lose the badges as well. i think it would look good with out any.

    Here's something opposite of what most will say here,,,,,,,,,,,

    I like the amber lights and don't care for the clear stuff.

    I like those factory style tips just fine,,,they just need to be tucked up closer to the bumper, thats all. It's about the only tip on a camaro that looks like it belongs aside from a CME.

    As far as the emblems go??? Im 50/50 on that. Those metal emblems are a nice idea, they are just hard to place on a 4th gen and make them look right.
    I've always been a "less is better" kinda guy and don't go for all the flash. But if ya like it, enjoy it.

    The emblems are fine as is...and with the tail pipe issue, i'd just cut them off and put on hidden turn downs.
