The engine and transmission were separated from the subframe and it was disassembled for detail work and paint.

Once stripped, the body shell was attached to a rotisserie for detail welding, grinding, and eventually media blasting.





The stripped body was cleaned seam sealed, then prayed with a Standox epoxy primer.  



The the bottom side was painted black with Dupont Imron industrial coating. Next, the bottom of the car was coated with 3M Body Defender to prevent chips.

The subframe and all the chassis parts were also epoxy primer and painted with Dupont Imron for a nice satin finish and high chip resistance.





The suspension components were then installed back on the body for the last time.

The body shell was rolled into the body shop, and filler process began. Meanwhile, the individual parts were cleaned and epoxy primed.









While the body was being straightened for paint, the crew narrowed and modified the rear seat Springs to fit between the wheel tubs and around the quadrant link suspension mounts in the floor.

All the original Camaro trim pieces would be installed, such as the quarter panel "gills" and polished stainless trim around the windows.  These pieces must be test fitted during the bodywork phase.

A skim coat of Evercoat Quantum1 body filler was applied to all the panels, and blocked sanded. Various coats of guide coat were applied to ensure that all areas were sanded smooth.
