    Ya buddy. One piece at a time and before you know it she will be phenomenal. Go grab a beer, sit back and enjoy your work while planning your next mod.

    That's right.
    Taking the time to get the stuff done and doing one thing at the time. Is always good.

    I wanted to get everything done at once. But it's kinda hard..

    I took a couple of shots and enjoyed the results. . I'm happy with it.

    Looks like a good job to me My car still needs to be put back together. The rear valance is off and needs painting. And no... I haven't put on the rear panel I bought from you yet either I did get the new headlights in though. Just have to replace the low beam harness on the drivers side and the bracket on the passengers side. Then it's a toss up between wheels or suspension goodies

    As you can see, I'm taking my time

    Thanks

    Few days ago I was gonna ask you about the rear panel. But been busy I forgot.
    When are you planning on putting it back together? Can't wait for the results. I'm sure is gonna look great . When I seen it that day my friend and I loved your car. Specially him since he loves white ss. I love all camaros. Lately I been thinking on getting a white Z

    For rims and suspensions what plans you have?
    I'm gonna start buying parts for the suspension too.
    So far I got the relo brackets. And strano springs.

    Yeah, it's been a rough year financially. Seems we've had to dip into savings a bit more than I'd like. So, my car always gets put on the back burner. I'm sure the berger panel look will be awesome. Still up in the air on whether to paint it gloss or satin though. I want the Manta stripes to match. I'm leaning toward gloss though. And then, I start thinking about the rear valance and getting a CME and new exhaust. And as far as suspension, most likely start off with SFC's.

    It's a vicious cycle

    Glad you like my car though It was still put together then. A little more dust on the engine bay then I would have liked. But you guys didn't seem to notice My car is pretty clean overall. I like it

    You painted OEM Z06 Wheels???? You just wrecked the shit out of their value and IMO it looked better before. If you wanted to paint wheels you should have sold the OEM wheels that go for a good chunk of change and bought painted aftermarket and keep the cash.

    I like it. Kinda looks like a modded police interceptor. I'm on the fence about the red lip for the wheels though. Might take away from those bright red calipers, which look awesome.

    Your car looks like a cop car GMHTP did an article on years ago. A nitrous-fed B4C from Northlake, Texas. Story was called "Narco-Camaro".

    yeah i had no choice on painting them..i did it for many reasons.. i did felt bad at moment for painting them.. gunmetal is a nice color but i dont think it goes with my car..

    after market z06 are $600 + and i think they dont make them 10.5 and thats not what i want, the OEM zo6 is exactley what im looking for on black, plus i bought them for $300 with decent tires on them.. around my are no one gives you more than $500 for them. i cant sell them and pay more for aftermarket rims,, and they had some curb rash on them too.. so the best option was just paint them,,

    i dont think the color has soething to do with their value, probably some people wouldnt buy them now beacuse they proably dont like them in black.. i think all that hols the value is the rim and not what color they are.. i could get them painted the color the way they were before

    i hope soon you can have it the way u like .
    i havent seen the manta stripe, or probably i did but i dont remember how it looks.
    i always like the CME exhaust but i wasnt a big fan of that, but for the last few months it really did call my attentios and now i want it on mine lol.. now i have the tips, and the valance, waiting to be installed but i have had some financial issues and i rather to wait..

    we loved your car , but i was expecting to see it with stripes, cuz i seen pics you have on ypur photos, what made you take them off?
    i dont think the engine bay was dirty at all.. thats cuz you havent seen mine,lol.. but i could notice some dust on the paint and made me think you didnt drive it that much

    I Think it would look better if the wheels looked more glossy...so they popped a little more/matched with the paint.

    Im really not a big fan of black on black if the rims are matte or dull looking. If your going to black it out then I think it looks better if the rims can match the paint as much as possible.

    Thanks.
    In the future I'm planning to paint it gloss black. I'm sure it's gonna look better.
    That's just for now
