Heres an old build that i had stashed away since 2009 i was thinking about a friend of mines that liked this car very fondly he passed away a couple of years ago so im finishing this build in his memory. The color im going with is Dupli-Color Toreador Red Metallic.

 

Heres some progress.

This is the interior of the Camaro that i'd assembled back in 2009 when i lost interest in it. I was gonna re-do it but looks just fine.

I'd repainted the frame beings that the 3 year old paint on the frame had chips in them so i'd used Colorplace (Wal-Mart) Flat Black a light coat to cover up the Rust-Oleum Textured Black that i'd applied 3 years ago still has some texture.

I'd finally got the Camaro on all fours shes closer to being finished. The wheels are from a Revell 69 Corvette Baldwin/Motion kit i'd painted the centers with Testors Flat Gray. The body is ready for paint.

After the paint dried & gassed out i'd placed the body & interior onto the chassis to give everybody an idea what she will be looking like when its finished.

The kits stock front bumper is painted the body color to resemble the endura bumper and the rear bumper is even painted the body color as well.

Killer stance, and Toreador Red sure does look good on it.  Great looking build, and hope to see more of it soon.

Sorry about your friend.  Love the color, the wheels, and the rear suspension "in the air", so to speak.  Very clean interior from what I could see.  A wonderful monument, Sir.
