1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

See the attatched pics....

Its the stock 305 TBI, with the 700R4.

The hood is gonna be replaced by either a 3" Cowl, SS hood, or an IROC hood. The car bra is long gone, just haven't taken pics since then. Some of the GFX need replacing, as they're cracked or warped.... The car will need a repaint, which is going to be the same factory color (the dark green metallic).
*Edit... I am buying the piece for the rear spoiler tommorrow, and replacing the fenders within the next month hopefully*

As for the power plant, I'm contemplating between 3 swaps. Either an LSx swap, a 350 TBI, or LT1. Depends on what I can find for cheaper. Whichever engine I get, its staying automatic, whether it be the 4L60E or 700R4.

The interior is in decent shape, and I plan to use newer 4th gen pieces to make it a little more comfortable.

I'll add to the post as I get stuff done to it, which will be pretty slow as my pockets aren't very deep.....

Please feel free to make suggestions for further improvements/modifications...

Don't worry, I plan to. It looks black at night, but when the light hits it, the metallic side really comes out

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

I love that color, car looks nice, get rid of those stick on hood scoops they look really silly. As far as the engine swap goes I think we already know which one will be found for the cheapest.. still I say go LS1 if you can afford it!

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

Thanks all! I plan to update everything I do.... Hopefully I can get the body straightened out soon.... The fenders, front bumper, and hood are really killing the looks....

I agree with the above statement 100%. The boy that had the car before me put them on there... They're not spaced out evenly.... I think I'm deciding to go with a fiberglass IROC hood.... I would get a cowl hood or an SS hood, but I kinda want to go with the sleeper effect.

I do believe LS1 is the way I'm going... I might take the 5.3L LSx route if I can find one for cheaper.... How hard is it to do the wiring going from TBI to LSx motors?

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

This project is coming to a close. Am now in the process of trying to sell the RS. My wife hates the car, and I don't want to ruin our relationship over a car. Ad is in classifieds section.

Thank you all for your input though.

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

Well..... The wife and I came to an agreement.... I am keeping the car..... Wow, the thread got a little off track.....

Back to the project at hand:

1- Trying to decide on a stripe scheme... I'm either going Dark green metallic with black heritage stripes, gold heritage stripes, or silver heritage stripes.

2- Trying to decide on a hood... Either the Iroc hood or the 92 Z28 hood (might do a 3" cowl lift-off, but probably out of the price range).

3- Trying to decide on rims/ rim color... I'm kind of debating on powder coating my current rims black with a polished lip or getting later model SS rims.

4- Trying to decide on interior (redo my current interior in all black or get a later model interior swap).

I'd appreciate the input...

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

Thanks for all the positive comments! I look forward to getting this project done soon as I can.

I don't have pics since its been done, but I have gotten rid of those scoops (one actually flew off going down the road... I tore the other off)... I've cleaned up under the hood some.... Here are some recent pics:

http://i337.photobucket.com/albums/n...s/Sideview.jpg

Like I said, the scoops are no longer there.... I'm trying to decide on a hood to go with at the moment... I'm probably going to go with the Z28 or Iroc Hood....

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

I vote for the 91-92 Z28 hood, I've always favored the hood blisters over the vents on the Iroc. Some 4th gen SS wheels would look nice on there, maybe ebay a Z28 grill too. Redo the interior stock and lay the silver strips on.

Re: 1992 Camaro RS - Dark Green-Gray Metallic

Kind of what i had been thinking... it was between black and silver stripes... i dont like the iroc louvers too much, but they're better than base model.

should i do heritage-style stripes or should i do some custom stripes?
