That Camaro looks great. Very well done. I've seen some people end up with what I call tiger stripes. The even flow on your car is fantastic. I actually loved the look of my car in the silver base. As for the question of masking, we use a foam tape, round and about the diameter of a penny. The round shape allows a soft blend, If you watch the video you might see the tape in the door jambs at the quarters, with the doors out slightly. This gives an even blend with no need to sand after.

Thanks Paul I appreciate the feedback. I have learned so much so far building this car. So much more to learn yet I am sure. I am thinking of wet sanding the car and doing a cut polish on it. Any advice and what can I expect in terms of improvent from what I have now.

The Cortez Silver uses a darker base, which gives it that great silver color. The Synergy Green uses a sliver metallic base as the green is a candy with pearl tint. The sparkle you see in the green is actually the silver base. I have a '69 SS waiting for my next project. An original Cortez Silver car that someone painted an awful red color. One of my favorite original colors.

Hey Paul here is a picture of my car that a a friend painted for me. How does it look to you. Looking for an expert opinion.

Hey Paul my car was painted BC/CC. A dark grey epoxy primer was used. Just curious if the silver you sprayed forst would have made any difference on my paint job. My car is Cortez Silver. I like Cortez Silver but find that some cars seem to have a more Metallic finish. Just curious how that is achieved.

Thanks

We need some pics of some new tanks for comparison.
292  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Fuel tank Replacement on: November 18, 2011, 08:43:23 PM
Quality replacement tanks are Ni-Terne coated steel, not galvanized.

Hey Scott what is Ni-Terne coated steel and does it look like galvanised steel? The Spectra tanks looks stainless. Very shiny. Those are the only after market ones I have seen. I just ordered one from Quanta. I will post a picture.

I have a spectra in my 69 and it looks and fits nice. They're priced well too I think. I just got the EFI version for my 68. They are both galvanized steel.

John

Interesting. I thought they advertised the tanks as stainless. I must have been mistaken.
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Fuel tank Replacement on: November 16, 2011, 11:24:29 PM
Hey Steve waht are the main differences between the two tanks. I think Quadra is galvanized and Spectra are stainless. What is the price differerence and why do you prefer Spectra?

Thanks

I have an original tank in my car and it is covered with a really thick coat of dealer installed undercoating. Its a Canadian car with the undercoating option on the options sheet. Should I remove the undercoating or keep it that way? I am not crazy about the look. It is just a 6 banger car. I would like to have a nice clean tank as the cars has just been painted. I have a new tank I can install, but is there any point keeping the original and does anyone care if this car retains its original tank. I was thinking of saving all of the orginal parts since this car is very original currently. Pretty well everthing for the most part is original except tires, paint, front windshield, some hoses and hose clamps etc.

There is a comapny in Canada called Spectra. I have not used them, but I did see a tank on a really nice original big block Camaro and it looked great. Here is their link.

I didn't ever know that gas tanks had codes. Mine id covered with factory/ dealer installed undercoating. Where is it located?
298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Fuel tank Replacement on: November 14, 2011, 07:39:41 AM
I was told this is the place to go. I just ordered mine.

Hey Mike. Looks like some kind of a different hood in the second picture or is that just a reflection? Looks like some supsension upgrades as well when he did the motor swap as the car looks to sitting higher. Any other pics? Really nice car and great color combo.

Beautiful car Steve. Sounds like you have some nice cars. If I make it to the show I will stop buy and say hello for sure. Keep those great pics coming. Not often we get to see such great examples of such fine and original cars. Are all your cars 69's?
