Ceramic Coating

Now that my 1968 Camaro RS has been LS swapped and updated it’s time to give the exterior some TLC.

The paint is not too bad, but it has a lot of swirlies, chips, and a nasty stain on the hood from when the car may have been stored underneath another on a lift.

I went to the July 2019 Caffeine and Octane at Perimeter Mall and met 2 guys, John and Sean. John has a awesome 72 Red and Black Chevelle while Sean has a gorgeous 67 Black Buick. The Buick is ceramic waxed while the Chevelle is ceramic coated.

Check out the rest of my review and experience on the YouTube video below.

1968 Camaro RS Build Project

Purchased a 1968 Restomod Camaro RS from North Shore Classics (454 4speed), a truly horrible experience. Read more about that here and other issues before I decided to go with Jed Reilly with Patriot Rods and Customs
