Looks good. You need to paint that fuse box now to match. This is how I did mine:

Thank - you. LOL. I just posted on the other thread, that I bought more paint. That is the one thing for sure that will get done this spring. I ran out of paint last year and was not sure what else I wanted to paint. Now that I have had time to ponder. I have a few items to mod.

I do like the looks of you engine bay. Those covers are top notch.

Planning on this one myself! I have an extra "stripe" decal to use for contrast, and one of my dog training class students is a body/paint man and excited to help me out on my Camaro! He's very happy with how his choc. lab is doing from the training, and just got all amped up when I told him I had a new Camaro. He's going to finish off my quarter flares for me no charge, and I asked him if he'd be interested in painting the engine cover for me too.

Anyway I love the line graphic of the camaro you did on yours, catman, and I'm hoping to do something similar, yet original and use up that extra silver stripe I have hanging around here. Thank you for posting your diy and supply list!

Your welcome, and that is AWESOME to have a person that will do the painting for you. The line GRAPHIC that you see was from a decal from eBay. Find it there.

Good luck and please post your projects when completed.
