What kind of paint markers for Camaro signatures?

I have asked this question in a couple of places & if I got a response, did not see it (some of the threads move so fast it is hard to find answers). Being a crafter I have aome things on hand but doubt they are the right kind. It is crunch time now. I want what is the best kind to have. It says they are good for metal, but is there something better?

What is it exactly you are trying to do? Write the word Camaro yourself or color the factory letters? Trying to help...

Ruby, what I usually see is black and/or silver 'Sharpie' permanent markers. Scott usually carries both with him depending on the color of the car he is going to sign. I am bringing silver for my Crystal Red car. I hope this helps you.

i think its for the GM guys to sign the engine bay, right? I guess any sharpie would work. If you really want it to last you probably have to clear it once it's signed.

Sharpie has Paint pins that are the same size as regular pins so you get a cleaner sig.

Ruby, Scott (FBod Father) carries a couple of different colored paint pens with him while he walks around. So you're covered. It's become a ritual that he's prepared for.

Even if you don't find the Sharpie branded paint pens, the ones pictured in this thread should be fine. As mentioned, normal sharpie's are not permanent, and can't be painted over.

I talked to Sparky about this and he said Scott carries black and silver sharpies just for this purpose so no need to worry.

Alright!
I'll have a few items for you to sign Scott, including my window sticker and the page in the book 'Camaro - A legend reborn' with the photo of you and Arnold.
