    Well G, the 'maro was kind of a strange build for me too!!!!! Was going to be Jackie's, then her brother came up with the Charger she really wanted so I ended up with the 'maro.... Probably wouldn't sell real well with the big Windsor I was going to put in it, either!!!!! Think I'll just get the body in primer, finish putting the suspension on the car and set it outside for some pictures, then reopen this one and ask the color questions again...... With so little of the car actually being shown in the pics cuz of my dinky little garage it's tought to tell!!!!

    Yea my wife always wanted a plum crazy purple Challenger. So that's another project waiting to happen. I'm kinda looking for a nice project car for her there.

    So what are you thinking for rims and tires??

    Dave , you said it was a custom camaro , I have never seen a custom with out a wild color /paint job !
    If it was a stock body , sure a more subtle color would be choice , but customs arent subdued at all , Lay that funky purple pearl on it !!! With some SS type stripes , it will look good , You can never go wrong with SS style stripes .


    I think just a pain Ol' paint job would hurt it more then a wild color ever would . ( IMHO )

    Basic black sells, unless it's summer time. Then red will be even more in demand! I like the fat white stripes idea. Anyone who likes performance will be attracked to it immediately. If there is no difference in cost, go for whatever color you want to highlight the suspension. I'd keep the purple for one of your own projects, or maybe your ex's Challenger! When ever I've sold a car, the red ones went the fastest. Purple is for the more descerning buyer(they'll pay more, but they are hard to find, and they are looking for a specific car) Red gets the testosterone going in most teenagers, and Black has that sinester look that also appeals to people wanting a fast car. Post some picks of it primered, and we'll ask someone like Denny to render it in different colors. That was a big help with me, on my house and car!

    Dave here is a youtube video of a car with a similar stripe paint scheme, only black and yellow. I think this would look great on the camero!

    I think I'll just hold off on making any decisions til I get the suspension built then roll it outside for some pics..... Sure do miss my big shop sometimes, in my little garage, just can't get back far enough to really eyeball everything let alone get any good pics of it.... If I win the lottery or come up with a windfall of cash between now and paint time, I'll just haul the thing down to you and let you decide and do it!!!!!!! Nothing really radical in the custom department, it just all started cuz I hate plastic bumpers..... you know how one thing leads to another!!!!!!

    Not sure G.... Think it's old enough for some slotted aluminum wheels??? I've got a set, 15X10's for the back and 14X6's for the front.... Probably a bit too nostalgic for an '82, huh????

    I've also looked online at some of the newer style Camaro and Vette wheels done up in a charcoal color with a polished outer lip.... I don't know.... My eye is no better and picking out wheel and tire combo's then it is picking out color combos!!!!!!!!

    Dave, have you considered using a maroon paint? This should match up well with your interior color. There are several nice maroons on late model stuff such as the Dodge pickups. Just a suggestion. I have had experience with purple and you may find that a buyer is very difficult to find. The paint savings may come back to bite you in the behind. If this thing is for sale and you need to turn it quickly, put the purple back on the shelf and wait for the right project. Just my opinion.
