a couple items to address when you build it to get a good factory stock build.

1. front and rear window trim is semi gloss black
2. door handles are chrome, with body color in center recess of handle
3. headlamp bezels, turn signal bezels and grilles all semi gloss black
4. there is a body line on the lower sides of the fender/door and quarters.
car should be flat black below this line no matter what color its painted.
5. there should be no seam in the front spoiler where the bumper joins.
5. the turbine wheels in the movie pic are stock wheels. center between spokes are painted stripe color.

I have owned 4 1:1 '79 Z28's.

Dude... are you stoned??? If you think Sean Penn is/was a pretty lady then if we ever meet you gotta stay at least an arms length away from me! As I remember the movie after the wreck Jeff Spicoli said "I can fix it, man. My dad has an awesome set of tools... He's a tv repairman". Maybe I was stoned, It's not out of the question! :rolleyes:

If i remember correctly the pretty lady driving the vette was 'nancy wilson 'of the band' heart ',probably got the part as she is married to cameron crowe who wrote the story.

I Just Painted The Camaro Yesterday It Was A Nice Day So I Figured I Paint It I Just Put The Final Coat Of Paint This Morning. The Paint Is Dupli-Color Silver Metallic Its Not The Silver Poly But Its Close. I'll Try To Have The Interior Painted Today Im Still Figuring Out What Color The Interior Is. My Guess Was Light Gray Or Oyster Gray.
