2006 Chevrolet Camaro (Concept turned SEMA)
Posted 16 July 2012 - 04:14 PM
I started with the Claim to Fame AMT/ERTL 2006 Chevy Camaro Concept Coupe. Figured I'd try and make a "What would the Production Car look like" build.
Right off the bat I noticed many things that jus' crawled all over me like a bad itch. I hated the grill, so I opened it up.
Much better if I say so myself!

Next up was the wheels. Don't get me wrong. I liked them, but they seemed a bit off to me. So I swapped them out for some Pegasus Hurst Type Rims.
Now we're talkin'!
Then it was time to get started on revamping the interior. Made armrests for the doors, took the "tunnels" off the rear parcel shelf, and added some styrene where it was super thin and kinda odd lookin' near the rear seat.
Now we're cookin' with gas.
To be continued ........... Enjoy!

Let's carry on and get this topic up to date shall we?
Well I decided to paint it up with Duplicolor paints. Primered the body after all the imperfections were fixed. Shot it with a silver basecoat, then with MetalSpeck Orange. I added Rally Stripes hopin' to give it a new meets old look.
And here we are. Not too much longer and we'll be completely up to date on this build.
I dunno what I was thinking when it comes to the Rally Stripes. Yes they looked good when done, but jus' wasn't what I was after when it comes to the look of the car. So I prepped it for something better.

I know the rule is to keep your dark colours on the top and your lighter colours on the bottom. I'm not one to follow directions or destructions. So I flipped it. I went with Satin White on top over the MetalSpeck Orange bottom.
Let it gas out for a few days and then got to work on getting the black and silver stripes laid down and start getting the body together with head and taillights, glass, etc.
AND here's a teaser of the interior colours!
Yes that's real low cut pile carpet for a doll house. It's very thin and easy to work with, but extremely hard to find anymore! I don't have much left so I need to start lookin! Enjoy Guys till next update!

Well this is the last update and then it's off to the Under Glass section! Enjoy!
Got the engine, pan, and interior tub all assembled. Inner rims were done and the spinners applied, and tires attached. Also got the grill and mirrors attached. Enjoy and Thanx to all who have followed this build either silently or via comments.

Looking cool so far...I like the wheels and the 2 tone paint looks alot better than the rally stripes
