In this installment, we’re finishing the primer coats and spraying the basecoat color on the 1969 Camaro called “Lou’s Change” in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.   The color is 1974 Volkswagen Mars Red, which is about ½ way between red and Hugger Orange.   We shot the body shell in basecoat color, then masked and cleared the door jambs.

In this video, we’re completing our chassis dyno break-in of the The Pro-Touring 1969 Camaro called “Lou’s Change” to make sure all systems are go.   The Forgeline wheels and Wilwood brakes are dialed-in, and the car is making some power.   Once the car was happy, we continued the interior reinstall with new parts, and added more shine with 3M polishing compounds.   In this episode:
 
 
- Chassis Dyno Break-In
- HP Tuners Software
- Recaro Seats
- Classic Industries Restoration Parts
- Dakota Digital VHX Gauges
- Forgeline Wheels
- New Relics Power Windows
- Hurst Shifter from Modern Driveline
- Classic Industries Restoration Parts
- Eastwood Sound Deadener
- GM Performance Parts Crate LSA
- Simpson Seat Belts
- Modified Chassisworks Roll Cage

The Pro-Touring 1969 Camaro called “Lou’s Change” has been sprayed with color, stripes, and clear, and now it’s time to do some wet sanding before buffing and polishing.   Once the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew wet sanded the car (and found some issues to fix), they brought the car to the dyno shop for a mechanical break-in in the GM Performance Parts LSA supercharged 6.2 liter V8 while the paint was curing.  In this episode:
 
 
- Wet Sanding Color
- 3M Trizact System
- Chassis Dyno Break-In
- HP Tuners Software
- Recaro Seats
- Classic Industries Restoration Parts
- Dakota Digital VHX Gauges

In this installment, we’re driving the 1969 Camaro called “Lou’s Change” built in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.    The car is finished, and the 700+ horsepower supercharged GM LSA 6.2 V8 pulls hard through a Tremec T56 Magnum transmission from Modern Driveline.   It handles the road with confidence thanks to a Detroit Speed hydroformed front subframe and suspension and a Detroit Speed QUADRAlink rear suspension and Currie 9+ rear axle.    The MagnaFlow pipes sing at RPM, and the modified body includes modern ZL-1 Camaro blended with a classic 1969 Camaro look.     Forgeline wheels wrapped in Toyo tires provide traction, and Wilwood brakes bring it all to a stop.   OER restoration parts provide a fresh appearance.

Once the door and trunk jambs were sprayed, we reassembled the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro called “Lou’s Change” in preparation for final exterior color.    The first round of basecoat was wet sanded and the car was cleaned, masked, and brought into the paint booth for more color.  The paint isn’t done yet, however, as the car still needs stripes and clear.

The Supercharged Pro-Touring 1969 Camaro called “Lou’s Change” features styling elements that reflect the modern Camaro ZL1, and designer Dan Steinhauser created a grille that blends modern style with the unmistakeable look of a 1969 Camaro.   In this video, we see how Dan scanned an original 1969 Camaro grille, then designed the modern version which he turned into a 3D printed part.    The V8 Speed & Resto Shop was responsible for the final fitment, finish, and install of this unique grille which is one of the signature elements on this innovative Camaro.
