    take em off or not?

    My 01ss has a wings West body kit on it, I kind of like it but I don't also. It's an SS and these make it look like an RS IMO. They are needing repainted due to paint peeling and chipping, So should I take em off and sell them for money towards power upgades or have them repainted? Here are a couple pics. BTW I'm thinking on the lines of a Procharger later this year.

    yea I know, I had a white 95 w/ black mirrors and I liked them a lot with the black top. So thats what I have to go from. My wife is the hater of the black mirrors.

    My opinion is that car would look 10x better without that body kit on it. I'd say take it off!

    Definitely lose the body kit, and don't touch the mirrors!

    Being body color they flow better, if they were black they stick out too much. I think the Camaro mirror design is a bit goofy, so the body color mirror is a big help to making it look less goofy.

    Was exactly is it you find goofy about the Camaro mirros, as opposed to the Firebird?

    The Firebird mirror is just a mirror...it just bolts to the door.

    On the Camaro, the fender flows up and back into the mirror. It doesn't look bad, I just think it's a little goofy when you look at the fender. Kind of like an animal with it's ears pressed back.

    Like on a 'Bird you could pull the mirrors and the car would look good, but on a Camaro if you pulled the mirrors you'd still have the fender reaching up and back with a big hole at the end.

    Just my .02.

    A procharger fits that car better than a body kit.

    Never really looked at it that way, but I get your drift. I just took a look at mine and I can see what you mean.
