Well after a busy couple of months, the project has started up again. There’s been a lot of nice muscle cars hitting the roads lately but at the same time it’s only 45 degrees today and I see the snow line considerably dropped on the mountains. I’m sure by July it should warm back up and the rocks will be cleaned off the roads.

The other night took all the painting & sanding materials, and a couple body parts, over to Kelan’s. I’m so excited to get this project moving forward! Anyway, no pictures, just an update.

That last bit of my House of Kolor paint order showed up from Coast Airbrush, the pearls were on backorder.

This past week I made a big order from Classic Industries while they were having a Saint Patrick’s Day special! I figured I needed to get a weatherstrip kit, painter’s gasket/seal kit, a grill to replace my broken one and kits to fix my door hinges.

After pricing the paint out at the local paint store Kelan and I decided to go with House of Kolor and mix our own blend. Kelan is very confident that we can achieve the exact result we’re looking for. So, the paint supplies are now all accounted for, except the red and blue pearls which were on back order at Coast Airbrush.

The Super Nova paint gun showed up in the mail yesterday. Kelan seems pretty excited to use it on the Camaro. For a paint gun, it looks pretty stylish!

Some of the painting supplies showed up yesterday from TCP Global, woop woop!  Now it’s time to order the paint.

Camaro Painting Supplies

I’ve been tossing around paint color schemes for that past couple of years but have made my mind up. Going to go with a dark grey with black stripes.  My father’s 69 Z28 Camaro was gun metal grey with black stripes and I’ve always liked that combination. My friend Kelan just painted up a couple different greys on a spare car part.

Graphite grey on the left, black in the middle, and dark spiral grey on the right.  I’m heavily leaning towards the graphite grey with black stripe combo.
