    to make your self feel better just have the rims powder coated down the road then I bet no one would say anything. Its your car do what you want theres no RULES!

    on the calipers they came out nice and shiny. I would put a lil black into them like maybe the small part on the calipers black then get the camaro decal on there.

    ether way the car looks good and you have the final say.

    i painted mine too but yours look a little dry. you might try and put some clear on them to shine them up a bit. i just used gloss black and got a good shine however ive been in the paint business for a while now

    Man your car looks great. I love the strips on the fender and of course the black rims.
    Nice car...

    Yeah mine dnt shine at all. I kinda like the way flat black looks on black cars. But shiny Looks way better.
    I have done many cars on the last few months. I have no experience on body work. That's the reason I didn't paint them gloss black because I dnt knw the whole proces, wet sanding, clear and things like that.
    I painted my old zo6 rims aftermarket. I put some clear on it. Didn't look that good.
    I didn't right or something.

    there are a couple of different ways you can do it. the way i learned was to put it on as thick as you can (with out creating runs) and keep your eye out for dry lines. Hell if you were closer i would come and help you with it.

    BTW: thanks for the props on the car

    look in the GTG area on Norcal there might be some in your area? I'm going to be in that Dixon parade for my 2nd time here on the 7th I hit up the Concord GTG few weeks ago.

    Looks real good!! The side markers make it look a lot better and I love the bright red calipers I generally don't like black wheels but your car pulls it off nicely

    Now that I remember I painted a white bumper on my uncles car. It came out nice. I'll try to see if I could make it look good with gloss black. I have some z28 I'll paint just for fun. Lol.


    No problem bro. I could be wrong but on the rear panel you have the same strips as the fenders right? I like that idea but mine is blk.
    I'll put them on mine on the drivers side corner on the roof close to the windshield .
    Just to see how it would look.

    Thanks bro I appreciate the good comments

    On the corners I was sure I was gonna messed them up or look ugly. But I surprised my self they look better than I thought. I have the clear side marker but now that I painted those I'm gonna keep them black.

    Thanks bro

    Are you buying aftermarket c6 zo6 rims?
    I thought c5 zo6 rims could be less expensive.
    I bought mine used. Price wasn't to bad.

    To have mine completely murdered out I'm doing the tail lights too. Al blinkers. Exept the head lights.

    All I used was sand paper 220 I belive. Primer only on the deep scratches.
    If the rims are not scratched you don't need it. If it's chrome just use some steel wool to clean it up.
    For paint I used rust oleum flat black.
    I love the way it does the job.
    I did 2 or 3 coats of paint let it dry Like 1 hour then put them back on. Wash them the next day.

    I'll post pix of other cars I have done.
    I did an Audi a4 it looks great
