69 Camaro "Mild custom"
Posted 07 June 2012 - 10:46 AM
My first project on this great forum - a 69 Camaro. Already started this one and have completed the mods on the body - integrated rear spoiler, cleaned front and rear bumper, side vent´s instead of the small inlets and a complete changed hood with a LOT of air inlets - but see for yourselves
These are the wheels i´m gonna use - got them from the Revell Chevelle kit
I´ve also started the engine (which i will try to build with a modern electronic fuel injection system from a corvette) and the interior, but pictures will have to wait until there is something more to show.
Hope You find the idea interesting. Thanks for looking

Well, things do not always go as they should - it got primer and went okay, but then problems started - raised paint here and there - especially the hood had problems !!!
Don´t know what happened - both primer and paint were of the same brand.
Well okay, Did give it a bath in breakfluid and all paint came off again - but now i had to do some putty and sanding again - now it´s waiting for things to dry up again
took a picture for You to show the build up of the hood from the downside
Also got the alloys stripped for chrome - haven´t decided whether to paint them body colour or to rechrome them with Alclad yet ???
AND i got started with the interior(which will be pretty much stock).
I´ll be back soon with news on the 2nd try for painting

Finally got some more done to the camaro - it was painted - and this time it went well.
While getting ready for paint, i decided NOT to go for the orange and black look - maybe because it has been used too many times already - but instead go for some less colourful. But regarding my choise of colour, i´ll just let the pictures do the talking - hope You like it
Next up will be some black pinstriping to seperate the light and dark colour and then some clear coating.
Thanks for looking.

It's not metallic is it?
It suits it so well.

You've obviously put some time and effort into that hood. Anything special going under it?
As far as painting the wheels, I'd suggest Alclad polished aluminum. Not quite as shiny as chrome, but subtle, like the rest of the car.
I'm liking this concept & can't wait for your next installment.
