    That's easy. The 1973 paint code 64 is one of the nicest colors with black stripes.

    Not a tough choice at all!
    Going to the original silver and black.

    Got some more work done on Saturday, more sandblasting the interior, I should say.
    Didn't get pics, the temperature dropped fast in the afternoon and the wind came up, got cleaned up and put away as fast as I could.
    Not much change to show anyway, just a lot more rust-free metal on the left side.

    Thank you!
    Such a long way to go, it's discouraging sometimes. Especially only being able to work on her 1 day a week. Been wracking my brain trying to find more time without taking time off work. Tough when it's after dark already when I get home from work, and I like to actually spend 1 day a week with my wife (Sunday).
    Maybe with the holidays coming up I'll be able to squeeze in a few extra days.

    Try to not get disheartened.
    I'm one year your junior;
    I don't have the history with my car that you do with yours, but like yours, right now, mine is a more "off" than "on" restoration...
    I'm blaming (joking, but not) the fact that I have a two and four year old, and quite frankly, I often would rather spend time with my family than being out in the garage...
    Like you, my project is moving... but it seems as though my pace is a bit more "glacial" than yours ;)

    Sat and read your entire thread! Am so excited for you. I wish I had my Camaro I had in high school, but the one I'm building will have to do. You are making great progress! I'll continue to follow your build, and wish you the best of luck. Savor this time with your father!
