    Yes looks great !

    I remember watching the project process years ago.

    I'm about ready to pull all my factory gauges and restore them. The time feels right to start that mini project.

    Thanks. I used the original 1970 Camaro Classic White.

    I still think today's paint looks too plastic but what can one do?

    Congrats to both of you. I’m five years in and finally on the down hill part of the mountain Be it just. Also IMO, that’s has to be the best damn ass end of any car ever.
    Ps I have an 80 z/28
    But I have dreams of an early model second gen.

    Job well done. Car looks fantastic. I’ve had girlfriends scoff at the amount of time I’ve spent restoring cars, usually doubting they would one day be finished. I have always tuned out the naysayers and kept at it slow, but sure. So I appreciate your perseverance and it’s always a great experience to be able to enjoy the fruits of your efforts. Cheers!

    As they say slow and steady. I finished a 73 Harley in early 2019. Started it in 2012. In my opinion you end up with a far better job when you choose when to work on or when you are in the mood.
