    Can someone tell me the type of paint the factory used on 78 Camaros?
    Don't know if it matters, but it's #51 yellow.

    The brochure for '78 Camaros describes the paint as Magic-Mirror acrylic finish. I do know that Los Angeles (Van Nuys) built Camaros used water based paint while Norwood still used I am guessing oil based paint.
