    side molding no more

    first of all i would like to thank SSwt00SS and Y2KPewterSS for their write ups and encouragement on this mod. it looks pretty decent for a car that gets the hell beat out of it.

    this is in no way comparable to brian's and preston's cars but i took a crack at it anyway....

    here is the original trim.


    i took the hairdryer to it after i got done with my mid-morning perm...


    heres what the shit looks like when you pull too fast...


    heres the completed side of stewy.


    the shit box washed and waxed....


    the seal of approval...

    the side moldings are kind of a joke anyway.

    well, in short because the rears were free. 17 inch wheels with brand new 275 40s on them so i couldnt let that pass up.

    i just dont have enough money for wheels right now and i mount my drag radials on the 17s occasionally.

    i like the staggered set up myself and it gives it a decent stance since i probably wont lower it anytime soon.

    if you see any deals on z06 wheels or torq thrust 2s let me know. i think it would help alot in the looks dept.

    btw preston, im doing a berger panel either today or tomorrow. you want me to do a writeup???

    Chrome Z06 wheels look great on pewter Camaro's. You would be real happy with those. Watch TomZwheels, he runs them around $600 for an entire set fairly often.

    If you could do a write up on the Berger panel that would be fantastic, we don't have one currently that I recall. Be sure to get some pics during the process as well
