    Trying to get to a true Day 1 is a real challenge. Many of the original materials-paints are not even available. How many painters are even practiced in the art of original orange peel and runs? Even most of the "survivors" that I have seen for a commodity car like a Camaro are rusted in spots and can be a mess. The problem with cars of the late 60's through the 70's is they didn't give a hoot about corrosion protection really.
