Finishing details were the task at hand for this 1967 Camaro convertible project. The owner had many of the major elements assembled but deciding how to finish those elements in order to create a cohesive package was somewhat undecided. Working together we were able to visualize colors, materials, and interior shapes quickly and efficiently.
For the exterior, we tested out a dark gray paint scheme with black and carbon details. Rotiform wheels were chosen and finished in gloss black. A fine mesh material was inserted into the hood scoop opening and lower fascia ducts as a finishing detail.
The interior revolved around using late-model GTO bucket seats up front. A dark red leather wraps everything and provides a colorful pop against the subdued gray exterior. TMI door panels with custom inserts keep the fabrication levels in check. The sheetmetal dash, however, is all custom with a Dakota Digital insert. With these appointments, the Camaro is sure to make for a comfortable street cruiser.
