Teal to Black 1992 RS Camaro Project Restoration Slideshow
Here is a slideshow of the work that was done on my Camaro. Originally teal with tan
interior, and gets a complete makeover of black with black/gray interior.
It took about a year to and costed under $2,000! Got a cheap paint job from
a local auto body & paint place, and it looks great, and I've been taking
great care of the paint ever since. I got the hood and interior and the
silver RS badges all on Craigslist for under 100 dollars...big money saver
there. The interior, seats and carpet were from an 1984 Camaro. The plastic pieces were
all painted with duplicolor vinyl spray and has held up great. It needed
minor rust repair on the floor boards, it was patched up and chemical
blocked from coming back quickly. I have been customizing it with the
purple lights, and a big sound system, and still don't think I'm done yet ,
LOL. It's an ongoing fun project. Hope you enjoy, would like some comments
on what you think.
1992 Chevrolet Camaro 2D Convertible RS (V8)
The Camaro is a
two-door, rear-wheel drive sports/muscle car produced and designed by
General Motors under the Chevrolet badge. The 1992 Camaro represented the 25th
anniversary of the Camaro, and all 1992 Camaro's came equipped with
special 25th anniversary badging. The RS, or Rally Sport, was the base
model of the 1992 Camaro. The 1992 Camaro was also the last year of
the third-generation Camaro styling, as a new body
style was introduced in 1993.
The standard engine in the 1992 Camaro RS was a 3.1-liter V-6.
The engine made 140 horsepower and 180
foot-pounds of torque. This engine achieved an estimated 15 mpg in the city
and 24 mpg on the highway. An optional upgrade to a 5.0-liter V-8 engine
that made 170 horsepower and 255
foot-pounds of torque was also available.
The 1992 Camaro RS was
available in either a coupe or a convertible body style. Standard features
included a four-wheel ABS braking system, a five-speed manual transmission
and an AM/FM radio with tape deck. Optional upgrades included leather
seats, a four-speed automatic transmission and a CD player.
The 1992 Camaro RS was
193 inches long, 72 inches wide and 50 inches tall. The stock weight of the
car was 3,105 pounds for the coupe, and the convertible weighed slightly

3rd Gen Camaro Build
A (lotta) work in progress. I started this project to swap a 191cubic inch
V6 to a 350 V8 (along with performance parts, and swapping & upgrading the
transmission) in 2009. (see modifications list below.) These are pictures
and videos as I progressed and the very first engine start and test drive.
I applied primer to protect the metal as I knew I would have to put the
project on hold, which is where it has been since. Plan to start again by
gutting & redoing the interior here in 2012.

1991 Chevy Camaro Project
My boyfriend and I purchased a pretty beat up Camaro and fixed it up to use as
a daily driver. I took a lot of pictures along the way and created this
slideshow. I named the car Captain Janeway after my favorite Star Trek
series since the car is black and red, like Janeway's uniform. =)
