68 Camaro

Picked up a 68 Camaro. Body work is all completed just needs to finish the car. Right now its a roller. No motor no trans. It has a 10 bolt, but we got a 12 bolt to go with it.






Got to give the PEOPLE what they want!

Look....if you wanna be the best then you gotta take out the best!

Dash Pad
Al Knoch has the best pads to date, all others look awful. Your dash top should be suede finish, zero gloss. Top of cowl should be body color and not black. It seems more and more cars are done like yours because few people today know what they looked like originally. Heater box cover is full gloss(80% as it pertains to lacquer). Have fun.

Probably bc they just spray all one color so they wont have to tape off and spray a different coat.

Was placing an order from Ground up

Laziness and since most don't know, the painter does not care. I go to GUP often and could check out a dash pad but would not get my hopes up. There are threads here with photos comparing Al Knoch to others. I'm shipping a '67 pad core to Al just for this reason.
