    Looks like red oxide primer. I want to paint factory red. Can anybody tell me where to get it? What color is it? Plumbers torch did the job very well.

    Used this product, which can be ordered in red oxide, on my 70 matched my color almost exactly. Good product!

    Stein.............I commend YOU for recognizing the Quality and Value of SPI products.

    Steve Nuwer (L16Pilot) did a thorough process of coming up with a formula of mixing
    a small amount of Black into the above Red Oxide SPI Epoxy to get the CORRECT
    shade of 1970 Norwood primer...

    I hope he sees this thread and posts his results as I read them on the YENKO.NET web
    site................

    Quoted from Steve Newer.......

    "On the subject of the SPI epoxy, I spoke to Barry and have been working with his Epoxy for a couple of years on my 70Z project. Per Barry's advice and based on my own working experience, I get more consistent results in the gloss / flat appearance using the epoxy versus urethanes, whether they be clears or solids. For the black, I used anywhere between 3% and 8% by weight flattener before adding the hardener.

    On a side note, to duplicate the 70 Norwood red oxide,red oxide ep I like 8% black and 5% flattener by weight added to SPI's oxy (pre-hardener). I understand the red oxide appearance could change based on several factors, but based on original no-UV exposure panels I have, the above matches very well.

    You can get a pantone chip and have it matched - this is a 73 RS LTZ28 cowl under the dum dum...
    PANTONE 490 - matches perfectly - do not worry about what it looks like in this photo - it really looks like this with a flash -

    Thanks for the reference Chuck, but just to be clear....the mix I use is based on a single cowl section from a Norwood 72 Camaro where the Red Oxide had not been exposed to any UV light. I cannot say this is correct for all 70-73 Camaros as the ELPO solution aged over time. I'm happy with my results and for anyone wishing the same/similar....

    Using SPI Red Oxide, I add 8% black by weight, then add 5% of the total red+black by weight of SPI's urethane flattener. After that add the activator, thin to your desire and apply.

    Steve, I hope YOU know how much I respect your dedication to the restoration process................

    I still dont comprehend how I would replicate your above mix unless I had a gram scale...
    Should I buy a cheap gram scale vs using a visual clear plastic PPG cup marked with oz's

    Can you either type here a scenario of the above in ounces
    or email it to me so I can SEE it and better comprehend

    Thanks for your patience
