Sorry I haven't been updating my status. I've been busy with other builds but now I'm back on the Widebody Camaro.

I've got the paint down but now I have a dilemma. I originally wanted to go with a matte finish but made the mistake of showing my wife the results prior to hitting it with dullcote, and now she thinks it should stay gloss.

Any opinions on gloss vs. matte? I think the color is kind of feminine in gloss, but my wife has a really keen eye for color.

Thanks for your comments.

I have no problem with "pretty." Looks pretty decent gloss. Needs an accent color though. Maybe that could be matte?

Not a bad looking color at all... Good job.

Thanks guys. 

Mike, the area around the scoop, including the scoop will be the same dark blue of the wing. As will the door handle and front splitter.

I'll also darken the door lines.

Update on the R8 Extreme. Due to some fitment issues with the chassis I've decided to retire that car from this years Cannonball. I have every intention to complete the car at some point, but just not this year. The frustration of not getting everything to fit and the cost of the TK, I dont want to ruin it by forcing things. I'll get it, but I need to cleanse my palate of the Audi.

So I will still enter a car, but now I'm going with some 'Merican Muscle instead of some German Stealth, and will be entering the following:

The car will not be stock. Mods to follow over the next couple weeks. It'll be a fictitious Limited Edition ride. 

Nice work on all the entries so far, lots of cool looking rides.

Understand completely. The Charger has the potential to be one the best models I've ever done, and of my favorite car. So I'm gonna keep at it but I will not rush it to complete my Dec 1.

I added some graphics to the Camaro. Some of you will note that they are from the Revell pro street Chevelle, but I thought they matched well with the body & paint.  

I'm going to try to use magnets on the hood to see if it will keep it down a little better. Every time I got it to fit right it would just slowly return to this form no matter what I did. Oh well.
