    Have thought about sprucing up my trunk audio components but didn't want to do a full custom job because I need space for folding chairs and cleaning stuff so I went with a semi-factory look:

    GM didn't use gray/white trunk spatter paint in the early second gens, but it looked best with my paint scheme. Behind the 10" sub is a sealed box with a full 1 cubic foot of space. It turned out great and the bass is a lot better than before.

    Dam that looks nice, also like how you took the stripes all the way to the end of the filler panel

    To tell you the truth I wish I hadn't done that. The correct way is to end them just below the first bend on that panel. I used the Phoenix Graphics stencils to get the stripe painted right, but they are not the best product and I had some bleed under the stencil in another spot so I decided it was easier to run them all the way down and avoid that. Thanks though.

    Nice job cvhu! I thought about doing all sides like you are doing, but I couldn't get all my gear in the trunk that way. I like the way your's turned out. By the way, nice blue Camaro...I'm a bit partial to blue :)
