i get to order my paint and primer tommorow yay.
anyway my wifes brother in law comes by today while im working ont he car and he goes u know u should just leave the car like it is and clear it , he was like noone would expect that thing to have a twin turbo engine under the hood looking like that.

anyways i just laughed and was like no friggen way, though i will admit if i was still younger and street raced before i had half a brain it wouldnt be a bad idea

anyways i have alot of work to do but im excited car goes in for the epoxy primer in 19 days

If it pretty near to glows as the light hits it...yes. Pearl is a neat effect.

Most people do have to find out the hard way of all the labor involved to do a full show quailty paintjob, we really are not money hungry theives most of us do really earn every single penny.LOL.......

That is the way the pearl will look...it will be a little darker, but very much like what you see in the picture.

grr this is frustrating , didnt relize summit shipped me 2 boxes , one from ga / and the other from nevada , of course i get the first box today expecting my bumper stripper but nope thats in the box comming from ga so that wont be here till friday

on the other hand i did get my sanding blocks and other supplies in so ill start striping the bumper by hand for now .

ugh 8 days before the car goes for primer and i have about 2 weeks worth of work left

atleast his weekend i have 3-4 friends coming over to help me pull out the interior, headlights,parking lights , window /door and trunk seals , and the inner wheel wells

hopefully this will save me enough time i can finish preping the body for paint

what r u guys using for washing the body of the car off before spraying anything special? will i need tack rags for primer? how about anything else

ttuesday ill be picking up any thing else i need to spray the primer on friday/saturday

I use a high quality wax and grease remover, let it dry, go over the car (Bare metal only) with 80 grit on a DA, wax and grease remover again and primer. Do this just before you prime the car...the moisture in the air will start the rust process quickly and sanding the bare metal areas on the car will remove the surface rust. Then tack the car.

i dont think ill have that issue here considering how dry it is ,but i will sand the bare metal spots after washing it , hell it rained on my car last week and theres 0 surface rust forming on the bare metal


btw when the camaro is done my truck is getting a matching paint job, i think im going to hold off till late fall to do the truck though, these 105-112* days have been kicking my butt lately

that paint stripper work great, went home for lunch and tried some out , as long a i went over the surface with some 80 or 120 grit before hand it worked perfectly took the paint right off down to the factory primer within 30 seconds. bet part is it wiped right off with a rag.

next time i have to strip a car im going to go the chemical stripper route ,actually once the camaro done the truck i getting painted to match so ill use it on that

Excellent, just make sure that all of the chemical is off, use Wax & Grease remover to clean it off...and especially on plastics, let the W & G completely dry before priming...on metal, the same thing, make sure all the chemical is off.
