1969 Camaro Restoration Project - Bringing the car to bare metal

To ensure the paint job will last, it is necessary to start from scratch, so on this project we are bringing everything down to bare metal as you can see in the pictures.


A combination of chemical and mechanical paint removal was used, and some media blasting.

One of the advantages of removing all paints and bondo is the possibility to closely inspect the metal to determine if any repairs need to be done, like removing rust.


For example, the left door (driver side) had some rust that needed to be removed
