Absolutely gorgeous, I love the color, and man is it straight . Anyone who brings a first generation Camaro back from where yours was has my total respect, great job.

The color reminds me of fusion orange but it is probably called something else. Nothing I can say but fantabulous !

I'm with dbm - your story of getting it done is inspiring. I awlays tell people - DON'T SELL IT!!! The blocking and gaps - invisible to the layman, are what make the paint look so good (as does the nice layout!!). Also, don't forget, if you take your time withe the finsihing, your son can help even more AND be able to remember helping you. He'll never forget that!

Kudo's!!

I think he is keeping the color a secret..
Looks similar to '68 Corvette Bronze that was an optional color on the Camaros for part of the production year.
And yes, it looks fantastic...
