    black berger panel and/or black taillights

    ok so i was searching around looking at blacking out my berger panel on my red 2000 Z... while searching i started looking at blacking out my tail lights and came across some a sweet ideas some people have done and was wondering what others thought and if any one has pictures of it done on a red camaro...

    in this picture this is my idea but either with red reverse light section or clear

    picture from "00SS4780" from another forum

    or just plane black berger panel?
    please if you have them post pictures of red Camaro's with black berger panel with/without taillight mods!

    That look badass.
    I had a red Z with flat black panel. Looks real good.
    On real panels flat blak is the way to go. If your doing tail lights too. Then gloss black should look good. But gloss blak on panel just look out of place for me.

    i was thinking gloss black because im planning on putting gloss hockey strips on and im also planning on getting a set torq-thrust M wheels black inside polished lip... so i feel that flat would throw it off...

    the idea of that burger with black tails looks good but idk what it would look like with black berger and back tails with red reverse on a red car lol!

    If your goin that direction. Then should look good.
    Dark taillights look good I was gonna do it on mine. But here in my area cops trip alot bout that.

    Post some pics of your car
    To have an idea.

    well this is the only picture i have of the back...
    i was thinking gloss black berger with/without black-out tails with red/or clear reverse?


    i am horrible at "paint" but this is my ideas!
    i know 100% from my stupid paint editing the tail light on the left looks better but its something to imagine?

    If your painting your mirrors you should get some extra ones bro.
    You can't go wrong with black mirrors.
    But doesn't hurt spend 40-50 on other set of mirrors.

    I got some that I can sell u

    I used rust oleum primer. Paint. Only on flat black
    Most people buy duplicolor

    If you got that extra cash. I would do it. You can always sell the extra set.
    I could give you a good deal lol
    You also want the Berger panel right?
    Shipping can go with the panel together.
    Mine are flat black. Electric mirrors. Good condition.

    The panel I'm sure will be under 100 shipped. Just have to find a good box and shipping price lol

    Yes the mirrors are OEM.
    They worked fine when I pulled them out

    imho I would use the LT1 style tail lights if you decide to do this. The reverse lights line up perfect with the trunk gap and will look cleaner when everything is painted.

    Jason is right.
    Painted taillights look way better in lt1 style.
    Plus you will have an extra set. Just in case.

    yup, that way he will have the stockers incase he decides to go back. Here are some reference pics of the 93-96 tails painted this way.

    If I had a red car I would do the tails completely red and maybe a black panel
