It'll look even worse, IMO.

I think this thing rocks! Do what you want, it's your car. Nice to make it stand out against the multitude of other cars that look identical. Any plans for power mods?

I'm partial to bone stock silver C5 Z06s so I can't say I like the mods. The first pics I love. I've had 4 very modded C5s and now really like them stock, I guess because they're so hard to find stock and it reminds me of the day I brought home my first 2001 Z back in 2003.

Most collision shops have cameras that will match most paint colors. Don't paint the center caps black. You will probably have to make it worth their while $ wise.

For power mods, I'm thinking just headers, cold air intake, and a tune will do. It'll probably be several months before I do those though.

I did go to a local custom paint shop trying to match the color but they didn't have any luck. I just remembered another one though that I'll try before doing the center caps in black.

I think with bronze colored wheels you have to err on the darker side of the spectrum. 2 shades darker and I think they would have gotten a better reception. Bronze on silver is tough to pull off.

That said, I am considering doing a darker bronze on my SW Z with the stock wheels to see how it looks. CCW SP500's will be the end choice though.
