    It's on lmperformance.com Go there. Click on your model. Click on External. Then rear Spoilers. I think it's the first one.

    i have to ask... i guess no one else saw it... why dose that camaro with the sportback rear window have a ws6 front end... and what kinda basturd child is that? Personally TS-S i say go for it... i think it would be diffrent. Only thing id be worried about is how hard is it to keep clean?

    I would say no one asked because I mentioned it in the post.

    Very bad idea. It'll make your nice car look like a 3rd gen that needs paint.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    the more i think about it, i'm against it. A glossy car can hide a scratch better than a flat car. And if i'm gonna drop a few grand on painting the car-then i'm getting it to look sexy.

    Well, here's an idea:

    Go to your local hobby store and buy a model t/a and paint it flat black and see if you like it.

    True, but a lot cheaper that getting the paint job done then finding out that you hate it.

    If you did ALOT of white pen striping it might look really cool, but itd have to be just right. However, its your car and if you have the cash and dont like it you can always have it repainted at some point.

    Flats

    Flats can be interesting, had a buddy with a flat black corvette with NO chrome, hid very well from the Police(not that anyone would ever do that).

    I personally like the gleam of a flashy color.(hench the Bright purple of my own)

    The Flats were a big deal in the 50's. Dad had a couple old rods he painted flat black, i think it says "NO SHOW, ALL GO"

    If you stripe it alot or do to much detail work I would think that would defeat the purpose of a matte color.
    I have no idea hopw you would begin to keep it clean. lol
