This has nothing to do with the Ghia, but it was a fun week painting a Camaro with Frank. This went down in April of 2014. Below is Frank’s post about the project from his blog Frank Forged.

Jim is here and this is about to go down! This is how we left it before we called it a night. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day.
Today was a busy day!
Here are some pics of todays progress.
8:44am: It was a very late night. We are crunched for time. We have 4 hours till rain sets in. Fingers crossed.
5:20pm: Waiting to dry then the shooting begins !!!!
5:29pm: Rain set in and we have to postpone the base coat spray since the booth sprang a leak.
Finally good painting weather.
Special Thanks to Jim who stuck it out until the Job was done. The Leak in the booth cost us a day but it came out great!
Starting to unmask it:
I’ve almost got it back together. It’s so dirty from parts being outside in the dirt.
Ditching the fogs:
It has made its first trip outside the booth.
I spent all night putting it back together.
I repainted the mirrors, handles, and locks.
I’ve had many people waiting for me to bring it to work so they can point out all the mistake we made :-\ “Haters.” But, people are pretty impressed with it overall. You can’t really say it doesn’t look good.
First sun shot:
Well this weekend I started the color sanding. I sanded all the runs out. There’s a few spots I’ll have to touch up later but you will never notice them.
First, the aftermarket fender chipped the front of my door. I had this problem before with that fender. This is part of the reason I swapped it to a factory one. The deer strongly suggested that I not use that factory fender.
