How to Paint 1968 RS Camaro in your Home Garage
Mark Aquino creates a paint booth at home garage for professional show room
finish on this 1968 RS Camaro. To build a paint booth
from home, start with clean concrete floor. Wash off drive way. Use 6 mil
plastic to cover the walls and items stored in the garage. Provide good
air flow by opening the windows and open the garage doors. Paint on a day
when they're low or no wind or breeze. Keep it clean. This 68 RS Camaro will be 2009 Porsche
meteor gray with black stripping. We mask the stripes. Big block Camaros have black rear panels
and though this is a narly small block, we'll be painting the rear panel
all black for the effect. We will water sand and scuff between coats.
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.
