While driving out to a local gathring spot Thursday night the '99 Cobra in front of me goes BOOM BITCH! and spits bellhousing and clutch parts all over the front clip of my car...some really nice chips and scrapes in the front.



I'll have to get the front clip reshot...and was considering some custom airbrushing...I'm thinking about a nice torch red front clip that looks like it's "ripping" into the quicksilver, so it looks like the silver is covering the red and being ripped off (not sure if I described it right)

What you guys think?

The paint scheme you suggest sounds really cool.

Wow!!!! I am sorry to hear of this "explosion"! :eek: :eek: :mad: That really sucks........ :(

Anyway, the paint mod sounds cool!! I say go for it!! Clearly, you have a creative mind and a positive outlook when you can take a bad situation, and make such a positive suggestion as a 'touch-up'' to the car. :cheers: :cheers:

Best of luck on the airbrushing and fixes to the nose. Keep us informed on your progress. :cool:

As shitty as the situation was...we were joking about putting little Mustang silhouettes on the side under the Z06 emblem, I'd have two confirmed kills... :D :guiness:

Ok - so some other suggestions I've seen so far on other boards are:

1) No red...that would look "gay", evidently

2) The silver on the car ripping away from Carbon Fiber "Underneath" the silver paint....



I love the 2nd idea...I would be having the same guy that is doing Jeff Nation's (jnation) car do mine as well, he's really close to me, and the best thing I've seen in town.

I also like the second idea. I think you should do a little more in one or two other areas of the car so it doesn't look like your were "covering something up".(been there, done that) Ties it all together,and looks like it was planned that way. ( Maybe on the rear panel, or near the rear brake ducts?

LOL! I was actually waiting for that...we were on our way out to a DFWStangs.net meet at a Sonic....I was sitting behind him at a light, about 5-6 of us sports cars sitting there all caravaning...

He hit it off the light and BOOM...I was going to get next to him to run, but didn't get the chance to...we barely got across the intersection... :(

LOL...

I'm 21, I pay for, drive (daily) a new Z06, perform every modification myself, in my own garage, with my own hands, race like hell, top-speed run/video with it, and the list goes on....You can imagine how I don't fit into the "Vette Crowd" :lol:
No offense meant, of course, I'm talking in stereotypes here...the woman is also an adamant 'Stang girl... :)
