is painting the car with ppg materials

The owner of this mean green 1969 OEM Z /28 is doing a complete restoration using the specs from vintage GM diagrams
and using the Kits and Trim parts supplied by
HEADLINER - Prep and install Work
when we removed the old oem headliner material
we found , the Bows and the old nasty pad needed to be replaced
customer purchased new bows to replace the old rusty parts and old pad that Jon at Auto Metal Svc removed.
see the new metal surface after Jon at auto metal did the dirty work removing the old roof pad
this took many hours cleaning the rust and spraying the new sealer
next new pad is glued to the roof sections and the quarters
Parts are cleaned with acid and coated with Sem Rust Shield
Front bucket seats look great! with the
PUI Covers and American Cushion foam installed
See the old rusty seat frames we restored start to finish
frames are washed in acid then the broken oem springs were mig welded by Paul at Auto Metal
Sem Rust Shield is applied to frames and new burlap and jute felt are then installed
Next we install the PUI seat kit and foam pad American Cushions, from StevesCamaroParts.com
this assembly from Steves looks great right out of the box !
Rear seat back rest frame and pad restore pictures
WOW! we had to STOP!
the PUI seat covers have come unsealed on the pleat sections, this looks very bad for the customer that has a completion date
the front bucket seat kit installed looks nice big thick heat sealed pleats like the original
the rear set is thin and pleats are not heat sealed evenly and the covers are doing a popcorn process as each seam lifts
DOOR PANEL Aftermarket Kit for Z/28 Camaro
Install DIY Project Tips
See the pictures of the Camaro Standard Door Panels get the new materials intergreated using the OEM Steel upper sections
See the finished drivers standard Z/28 Doorpanel up the page
1st you have to use a angled tool to bend the original staples OSBORNE TOOL #120 1/2
You have remove the original upper panel and reset the pressed daggard holes using a angled set of pliers when doing by hand
this means you have to turn the tips up so the pre punched holes will puncture the new panels giving a tight fit.
After you get this removed you have to clean the upper metal panels with Solvent to remove the glue (we use Kent Acrysol)
then use a light acid that wiil remove the surface rust (Metal Prep)
then spray lite coat of sealer like (Sem Rust Shield)
You can the align the upper panel to the aftermarket assembly doorpanel, using the notches and marks
Next apply glue to the doorpanel base board and the metal , using a heavy weight hammer to stamp the metal to into the panel, by hand doing strokes like a roman makes his sword, hard and even to get a smooth feel of the new hand sealed upper section
Adding the foam pad that the aftermarket company did not include with the kit
You have to hand cut the 1/4 inch foam to size with angle the cut to edges
