What size wheels and tires (front and rear)? It's a good look!

Looks great. I think black below the moldings like on all SS396 cars would really set it off. I love the column shift, radio delete, etc.

What size wheels and tires are you running?

I had a '68 SS - Teal blue metallic - and the black rockers really add to the overall look especially if you ever go to a ET style or dark center magnum wheels with a bit of a body lift ('68 day 2 kind of look).
Vinyl top not so much in my opinion.. but front and rear bumper guards and blacked out headlight bezels and grill ala '69's and it really brings out the lines of those cars IMHO..
Love it!

Car looks great. I would cut out the opening of the stinger too. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

Question. Do those valve cover spacers give you any issues? Leaks or wiper motor clearance? I was considering them on my next build and Im afraid the location of the Camaro w/m it will come into contact or I will have to remove the w/m every time I need to access the rockers.

Darrrell, i have had zero issues with the valve cover spacers there made local and machined out of billet aluminum they claim you can just seal them to the cyl hd with no gasket but i chose to use one anyway and the are made in several different thickness. No plans to open scoop with the cowl plenum air cleaner gettin fresh air from cowl. Thanks for the input!
