Im sure I am in the wrong place to start this but I want to say Hi and I am new here. Have read many a post already though. Some interesting things here. I am new to PW's in general and modding them but I have already completed my first mod (painting) and have a itch to continue and would like to install lights next. Everyone, including myself, loves pics so without further delay here is my transformation of a stock red C7 into a white Z06. I tried finding Z06 decals but the only ones I find are way over priced for what I am wanting to do with them. Let me know what y'all think.

Thank y'all. It turned out better than I had hoped. Now we will just see how well the plasti dip will hold up to my son. I got a little overspray on the back by the wing with black. I will touch that up later. In retro spec I should have done all the black first and then the white. My only prep was washing car with warm soap water and quick wipe down with alcohol cleaning wipes. The first coat of white did not cover well at all but after that the other coats went on much better. I found some vinyl Z06 stickers on ebay. I may order those later along with some led's. Im thinking of continuing the hood stripe to the back wing. I also want to take the wing off and respray it with black again.

I did see those Z06 stickers thank you. not quite what I am looking for. I did find some better ones but they come in a pack of 8 and are all different colors. No biggie. I will just paint them all black.

How's the plasti dip holding up I know it's been a lil bit since you did it. Got my son a barbie vette (sale for 100$ and couldn't find a boy color one) and now have to change this pink. Debating paint or dip would like to go dip if possible but worried bout the constant climbing in and out
