    Sent it off for paint 2 weeks ago, all the bodywork is completed. Final prime and blocking being done. Front end and under side body done. Did remove the sub frame for complete rebuild. Engine and trans completed, all interior pieces on-hand.

    It took some time to get it all done. Masking it all off was the most difficult, wonder how they did it back in 1970. I had heard they chromed all the pieces then painted the black.

    Used the chrome pen for the Camaro script, pleased with the way it came out.

    I bought a spray bomb at Home Depot. Claimed chromed look. Turned out flat looking. I was doing hinges on the Bathroom doors. Thanks for the pic's
