Split Bumper and Finishing Paint

Print1971 Chevrolet Camaro Project Orange Krate – Split Bumper and Finishing Paint


When coming around the corner on a full build there’s always plenty to do near the end. You could call this installment “bits ’n’ pieces” since there’s a little bit of everything addressed with even more that we don’t have the magazine pages to show you.

It’s a time when you go over the car from front to rear and inside out to tidy up the loose ends. To make sure you tightened every last bolt and have everything in order before adding fuel and spark.

In the case of Orange Krate, our ’71 Camaro project, we’ve covered 29 installments (most of which were published in Camaro Performers magazine), and basically addressed every facet of the build. Peter Newell of Competition Specialties in Walpole, Massachusetts, handled the turn of every bolt, bringing his own signature edginess to the car’s newfound attitude. Study something long enough and an artist can evaluate it for the final icing—something that might have been previously overlooked. Case in point, with the rear of the car. Newell felt it still needed a bit more twist so he brought it back into the spray booth to add the final dazzle by giving the rear taillight panel some added custom-blended Planet Color vibe known as Midnight Lightning Pearl. The final visit to the spray booth also included a number of bits requiring a splash of Planet Color Big Bad Orange, including the bullet mirrors, inner headlight buckets, and front bumper fillers.
