    I love your SS and its a very show worthy Camaro

    The tag frame stands out too much IMO, I would consider another one. Your engine bay is very clean but doesn't "pop" like the rest of your car. You have done some very good things with the polishing so far, but I would recommend doing some things to really "pop". I suspect you are already working on this anyways by the question you asked me earlier today

    One show tip I can pass on to you, be sure to clean, clean, clean, and clean some more

    Exterior looks sharp, as does the interior. I agree on the engine bay looking pretty untouched. The other thing that really stick out to me that needs to be adressed is your exhaust tips.. polish polish polish! Your super shiney wheels make them look very dull.

    Something like the spots in the barrels of the wheels might possibly hurt you with the judges. Below is what I meant by clean clean clean and then do it some more

    The head plates are definite positives

    The oil caps are nice as well.

    The lid decal is not worth the $40 IMO

    You can make your own short antenna

    You are in prime need of FRCs that are SOM in color

    Even for $12, I still wouldn't get the decal, #s change over time.

    I took my dremel to my antenna and cut it to my desired length. Mine is 8 inches long. I had an extra antenna, and it might be a good idea to find an extra yourself.

    I just priced out a set of FRC's from Afterthoughts in SOM color with striping. If you add the heat deflective tape and S&H, you are looking at $300 range. If you don't want to go that route, I would look into doing something with your valve covers and coil packs, maybe some colormatching with them. That would definately give your engine bay the pop its missing

    I personally like the looks of that oil cap the best, but they all look pretty good.

    I would keep the one you have and possibly have it painted SOM

    The polished one for $50 more is a 3 point brace and they have a history of breaking the windshields. I wouldn't even think of spending over $200 on an STB

    cool thanks.I have som spray paint. its very close to the stock paint, but when not 100%. I painted a small chip i had in the bottom of my front bumper and well the spray paint looks a bit darker. my engine bay paint doesent look as shiny/glosy as the exterior paint.sucks that the factory didnt take the time to put a nice clear coat on it.

    well just got back from the show. I didnt win, but My car was in the top picks for the judges. Everyone thought I had one of the cleanest car there.I ended up doing the wire mod to clean up the engine bay. here are a few pics of the show. U guys will be able to see the competition I had. they used my car for the album cover, so I guess someone did like it after all next yr. that 1st place will be mine!
