My 69 Camaro X-55 Restoration

#1
Hey guys thought I would post up about my restoration using SPI epoxy and primers.

I just want to say that I am extremely thankful that I was recommended by many on the Team camaro forums!! Camaro side.jpg

I just cannot imagine going to that extreme on any vehicle. I just hope you have better luck getting parts that fit together. The one that I am just finishing up has been a real headache. The parts are very available as reproductions, but they lack quality and fit in many cases.

Well no one can accuse you of not being thorough. That car will be all new by the time you get it back together.
Looking forward to more pictures of your process and progress.

Awesome! My favorite body style of all time. Be sure to post some progress pics as you go. I remember when I pained mine a few years ago, I had a terrible time with the repo fenders. I can't imagine how difficult it is with that many new panels!
