    Finished the paint and body work, FINALY!!!

    Here are some new pics of the car. Notice no body lines or stock markings(camaro on rear and camaro nose emblem) or rear side lights, molded body kit on and bumpers to fenders, no antenna, custom fenders, no mirrors and shaved the thumb lip on gas cap and no handles... Did not use any bondo. It was all done with a 2040 compound and some mixed urethane product for extra support so it does not crack. I am looking for new rims right now I just dont have the money. They are going to be 17's in the front and 18's in the rear. Trust me I dont like these rims on the car either. Any one wanna do a trade let me know!!!!!

    That is amazing!!
    Did you do all the work yourself? If so you are talented!
    Nice Job, I actually think big wheels suit the car, an 18/19 combo would set it off pretty nicely!

    thanks you guys. yea this car only has 11k miles on it. NOT a daily driver. I think I have only driven it on the freeway one time. Well that is after the paint and body work was done.

    No I did not do the work my self but I agree they did an amazing job on it. Your not the first person to tell me to stay with big rims but I know the F-body comunity does not like it and Im not sure if I like it any more. We will see it all about the money right now... that I dont have.

    I am not a fan of those wheels on there right now, however they actually suit the style of the car and they look pretty cool on it. If they were on a stock f bod it would look cheesy. About the big wheel issue, alot of people on this site are heavy into drag racing and big wheels do not go along with that aspect of it very well. That is why you will get negative comments on wheels larger than 17". Personally, I love the look of big rims on an f-body as long as they are tasteful and not ghetto looking. The suspension has to compliment the wheels as well *which yours does nicely*. I think an 18/19 or even the right 19/20 combo could set the car off pretty nicely. If the wheels are too small they will hinder the overall look of the car imo, given that it is slammed right down and with the style of paint and body work - it is screaming for big wheels and tires.

    Coll thanks man. The rims size is 19front 20rear right now. I was even thinking a 18front 19rear combo would look great on the car.

    Very nice for a camaro. I love the flames on the side and the front looks really nice. Just be careful cause here in Cali, there's a 2 mirror law I believe. So unless you put 2 rear view mirrors.. :P

    whoever did that work did a damn good job. No offense but I dont really like that kinda design,( i am one of those solid body color and racing rims guys haha) but I am very impressed with the work. Very subtle, very clean, very clean paint. If you dont mind me asking what did that set you back? if i were you I would def. get my ass into some shows. its time you start making that car work for you. I def. beleive that you have the capabilities to earn some money off that ride.

    Want a new car

    That is awsome ! A couple things I would like to see is the interior and engine, did you do anything to those, also the girl in the back ground looks like she would be a good model for your car.
