Glad you like them!

I have a thread on the forum, that went through the entire process of building something like these.

If you have any questions, just ask in that thread. Either I or one of the others who did it should be able to answer.

Is that original paint? If not, where did you get it done?
Thanks,
Not original paint, had it done about 5 years ago at this place out in Roy but it's no longer there now.

Re: My 1984 Camaro

Redid the plastidip on the wheels, using a graphite color this time. Really like how it turned out.




New plastidip, using black as the base and graphite metalizer to finish

Re: My 1984 Camaro

wheels look really good, keep up the work, and was your car originally a carb or always injected? If it was a carb, how difficult was the swap with the V8, and what all did you have to do to your harness and all to get the V8 to function properly?

It was originally a 2.8 carb.

We basically bought a 92Z28 and just swapped everything over. computer, wiring, dash everything. Actually wasn't all that difficult to do.

Re: My 1984 Camaro

Oh okay, on a scale of 1-10 how difficult would you say it was, and also how much time did the whole swap take?

Well if you have a donor car, and you're going to do the same as me and swap everything over, it's not really all that difficult. You just start swapping everything from the donor to your car.

You'll also need to change the motor mounts out, and also the front springs.

I would say that the entire job would be a 6-7 out of 10.

If you want to keep your old wiring and dash etc. that will make it tougher since harnesses change pin locations over the years, so you'll need to take that into account and move pins around to match what your car already has.

Re: My 1984 Camaro

Nice work on build man. You should be damn proud! (not that ur not)
I love the color. What color red is that? This spring I will be finally, hopefully getting mine back together and shot with final top coat. Red also. It was painted all apart, but for some reason all the reds dont match.. Some are RED while others have a orange hue to the red which I really like and am going to go with. Anyways, your threat got me pumped. Been a long time sense ive driven my car.

Re: My 1984 Camaro

Thanks!
I really appreciate it.

The paint is called Victory Red, apparently there are 2 shades with this name. Mine is the one with more blue in it. Which makes it a deeper red (less orange).

It's really red, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Re: My 1984 Camaro

The car looks great,you did a great job.

I see you have the 88 Sport Coupe wing/I have the same on my 88.
I was thinking about going with the 91-92 High Rise wing or the three piece spoiler,
but I think I am going to keep the Low Rise wing on my 88.

Ya, I know a lot of people don't like the shorty spoiler, but I've always liked it. And they were kind of a rare item, only half year I believe. So when I found one, I snatched it up.

I think it looks good on the hatch

Re: My 1984 Camaro

Now that I don't need to have a front license plate. Need to work on repairing that piece that the front license plate bracket mounted too. I have 3 screw holes to patch and then repaint it.

Will be doing that next.

Re: My 1984 Camaro

Started her up the other day.
She's been bundled up in the garage for the past couple months.

The LED tail lights I made are still going strong.
