Default HPI 2010 Chevrolet CAMARO Body #17543

These new HPI 2010 CAMARO bodies are in stock now at most hobby shops and internet retailers. I think HPI kind of aimed in the wrong direction with the one they show on their website. At least for most in the U.S.

Everyone I know looks twice when they see a new Camaro roll down the street. But, the "DRIFTING" version with all the bling-bling and all that misses the mark IMO.

So, let's put photos here of what most of us want our new CAMARO to look like! The body comes clear, and has all the decals to make the hip hop DUB version, but...well, its not American Muscle. Let's see some MUSCLE!

Here's my first version of this awesome new body. I tried to match the current "Synergy Green" color that Chevy is using on their new SS. Its an incredible paint color. If you don't want to get noticed, don't buy that color!

I used Faskolor Key Lime and white. I also added some neon green under the light coats of Key Lime. Makes it GLOW without making it neon looking.

Stock decals. Should fit virtually any touring car platform.

You can see, my color is off a little. I was working with stock Faskolor Key Lime. And, often Faskolor comes in different shades even when its supposed to be the same color from bottle to bottle! QC problem!

The next one I do, I will mix a little more green in and see what I can get.

I had a question regarding this camaro body.
Why does it come with a second bumper, what are you supposed to do with it?
