BTW - Noticed in your pictures the wrinkles in the fire wall above the transmission tunnel - I have seen this on a lot if not all 79's I assume it was purposely done by GM to add strength and give it a crush point. After looking at mine for months ok ….. More than a couple years during my rebuild it was driving me nuts and I decided to smooth it out.

This is great! May I ask what products you are using? Looking to get myself a 2nd gen project as well.

Are you painting this by spray can?
Sanding by hand?

It is looking great!

Thanks for the pic! so this set contains pretty much everything you'll need to use? Do you have to reduce the paint?

Also, what kinda gun do you spray with? I have a small touch up gun that can still spray out a nice size. Not sure if that would work unless i took my time and did it panel by panel

no need to reduce the paint but i do reduce the 2k primer4:1 its pretty thick.

i spray with a cheap finex 2000 it does an awesome job,that detail gun would probably work ok,how big is the cup on it,the primer u might have an issue with,i use a 1.8 tip for the primer,for primer just get a cheap harbor freight one that will be fine for the primer.what size tip is on that small gun you got.a 1.3 or 1.4 would be perfect for the paint and clearcoat.

figured i might as well just continue with the body work while waiting for my tranny to be rebuilt wich will probably be a little while,,my freinds doing it for the cost of just the parts luckily,so gotta wait until he gets the free time to do it,since his tranny shop is pretty busy right now,so i been working on fixing the bumps and bruises on the passenger lower quarter,and working on the rear bumper cover that required alot of work to make it look good again,and got the upper drivers quarter all ready to lay the 2k primer down so i can start the block sanding.

was up all night working on my camaro again,got the trunk gutter all sanded down to 400 grit,cleaned and sparayed primer,also finished all the body work on the drivers rear quarter and got that sanded to 400 grit,cleaned and primered,and also started working on my hood,all i have left is the drivers door jam and the roof,door jam should be easy and im sure the roof will need to be smoothed out to make it straight again,also did the block sanding on the drivers quarter and sanded with 600 grit wet.

I love watching your progress. It is really looking great. I checked out that website for the paint and it was confusing me, I couldnt find colors, kits or anything lol but i did happen to stumble upon the Paint Shop line from duplicolor, everything comes ready to spray primer, paint, clear. they also have a metallic clear and a candy kit you can buy as well.

I am going to buy larger guns, gonna get a 1.8 primer gun and a 1.4 topcoat gun, then buy another 1.4 gun for clear.

Watching this thread makes me want a project so bad! I hope to see some more pics and updates soon
