Thats a really nice paint job and that being your 1st one is really ausome. I've painted cars and now I'm painting new corpate Falcon Jets. Check out these two paint companys PPG and House of Color they make some really good paint that comes in single and double stage series. also check out the SATA Paint Guns their really good guns and worth the little extra money. Hope my little bit of info help you on your next project.

Night Pic

This one turned out decent I think. Tonight I went to a cruise in about an hour away, I let everyone who asked about the paint (and that was pretty much everyone who looked at the car!) know where it was done and by who... I gave my card to one man who needs his mid 70's Camaro painted, I think there's a good chance he might call me, this thing could really snowball... that would be awesome.

I stopped at a gas station on the way home and 4 separate people (3 from different cars, and the lady who worked there came out!) came over to say how nice the car looked!! On the way to the cruise I went in to a convenience store, while I was checking out I saw an older man circle the car at least 3 and maybe 4 times !!

I think I picked the right color combo!! Its crazy!!

Excellent job, What I look at as much or even more than the shine is how straight a car is.....Your car is STRAIGHT. Very Impressive.

Thanks!

My mantra: Block it, Block it,Block it, Block it, Block it some more then go back and block it, oh and finally block it !!! Then block it one more time just in case !! Block it one more time just for good measure... spray it, screw it up, sand it all down and start over then repeat...

That is the brutal truth of the straight body on this car. Countless hours and a mountain of sandpaper...good thing I don't mind sanding!!!

This car has been in the family since new, Ive had it almost 20 years, nothing is too good for it or too much effort... it will always be a keeper.

The key to any professional, show quality paint is the prep. If you want it straight you need to spend the time and in your case it shows that quality time was spent. You mentioned that this was your first solo attempt which makes it even more impressive. The power of listening and understanding have worked well for you kudos again.

All The Best

Sweet, great job, looks fantastic. I love the 68-72 Nova, one of the most under rated cars there is and tons cheaper than 67-69 Camaro's.

Yep, basically a 1st gen Camaro under the skin with a bigger trunk and back seat. They share the exact same sub frame up front.

I actually had a nice 69 Camaro, I sold it so I could get another Nova !!
