"Adapt and Overcome" should be your motto
As of 12 May 2019, 4:45 pm, I finished the exterior spraying of my 1971 Camaro RS. A lot of problems along the way resulting in a lot of do overs but it now looks DARN good...!! Contamination is present but will be removed with 2000 grit then buffed, which will also remove orange peel. Will look even better.
Reluctant to paint your own because you have never done so before? You can do it for I was nervous, heck even scared to do so for I had never picked up a spray gun before. But with a lot of help from this group, in the form of Xten, I did it. A lot of emails and phone calls without which I would not have been able to do this. Thanks Phil. Tremendous satisfaction and yes pride in the result
Spraying direction was up from bottom to top, move right, top down to bottom, move right, repeat.

Last painted parts
Readying Interior Parts for the new color: Will be close to the color or the new headliner material. Anxious excited to see the new color. 28 pieces total to spray
Below group (+ RH kick panel) will first be sprayed with SEM High Build then SEM Texturizer. HB is to get a uniform surface for areas have worn off factory texturizer or I sanded off to remove damage.
Needed mesh on both sides along with Permatex Plastic Welder.
The ac vent turned upside down looks is a helmet from the middle ages
Will add padded arm rests and a similar padded part to the vertical concave surface. Will use gray vinyl sprayed with the new color. Doing this to dress up the panels
Would not work but looked into fiberglassing the horizontal seam between the two rear panels. Would look better without the seam
Door pulls cut from the lower door panel for use with the single piece 78 Legendary panels.
Front and back ends enclosed
Did not enclose the underside. Removed the 5 strengtheners then a piece of ABS plastic to cover the area
Looks really nice, you are an inspiration, for the rest of us , who are afraid to paint!!
