68 427 Baldwin-Motion Camaro Detail

Hey guys,

Here are the pics of the Motion Camaro detail I finished a few weeks ago. The car is a documented Motion car and I saw the letter from Mr Motion himself Joel Rosen, stating that the car was in his shop back in the early seventies to have the 427 dropped in and all the other suspension tricks Motion would do. The original owner asked Joel not to install the Motion badging to keep the car as a sleeper with it's original 396 badges and the steel wheels with dog dish caps.The car is appraised at $185k.

These are some before and afters of the scratches, swirls and RIDS that he introduced to the paint when he decide to give it a "wax" job himself. I spent 4 days just compounding, making 2 passes with a wool pad and one pass with a foam cutting pad.I followed that with a finishing polish using a foam finishing pad and then topped it off with the paint sealant.

Look at the scratches just above the center of the two lights from him using too much pressure and no lubricant trying to remove something from the panel.

You can see the wet sanding scratches left behind from the body shop.


Now for the finished shots outside in the sun.
