    1968 Camaro project.

    This is my 68 Camaro when I brought it home in 96. It sat as a future project for a long time.

    Started working on it in 2013. After soda blast.

    Looks like it is coming right along. Much success in your project. With that motor it should be a real blast to drive on the 1/4. I am hoping to hit in the 11s on mine when it is ready. LFT

    The red is Sherwin Williams straight red toner. I looked into Beck. Lots of negative reviews from what I found. Basko did a good job. Took a little longer than it should have, but that's pretty typical with machine shops.

    I have a 65 Chevelle that I want to paint Red and seems real hard to find a color that does not have much Orange in it lol I want Red red ....
    Others have mentioned that Viper Red is real nice however that red you have done looks great.
    So to buy a small amount so I can spray a test panel to see it in person it's just Sherwin Williams red NO toner correct?
    What color did you use for a prior and sealer

    Not no toner, straight toner. The color is literally straight toner. The color is awesome because it's formulated in the lab not mixed at the store. I have panels that were painted 6 months apart and you can't tell. Light gray primer was used.
