The cars correct GM code 65 Olympic Gold basecoat is flat and glossy, riding on bodywork that was carefully and sparingly performed.

Below that bumper, clear parking lights are centered above a familiar Camaro D80 chin spoiler. And above that grille, a traditional ZL2 cowl induction hood anchors bright 302 scripts between a fresh Camaro by Chevrolet header emblem and satin-finished windshield wipers arms. Behind those wipers bright, dent-free stainless trim and pristine chrome drip rails combine with a correct black top and a chrome drivers mirror to frame new greenhouse glass. Below that hood, standard stainless rocker moldings and straight stainless wheel well trim combine with traditional chrome door handles, familiar fender louvers and correct Camaro and Z/28 side scripts to add just the right amount of flash to the cars sculpted profile. And at the back of that profile, a correct D80 decklid spoiler rides above crystal clear tail lights, a centered Z/28 emblem, a second pristine chrome bumper and bare stainless exhaust pipes.
