Camaro Custom Interiors:The stock plastic interior of our Third Gen project Camaro had degraded due to sun exposure. The plastic textured surface had crumbled. This crumbling surface was scraped off and a thin flexible grey ("Yorktown Slate Grey") automotive vinyl (JNJ 2113) was laminated with contact cement (Lockweld 801) for a quality, elegant, better than original result. Ozite Foss AM7 (Medium Grey) was applied to get the "carpet" trim look.
The rear arm rests are highly contoured but could be covered by a highly stretchable fabric currently popular among custom rodders. (Douglas Fabrics Co.) A vellour on the upper door panels (spotted grey ABC 893 #BC303) with Ozite on the lower part of the panel was enough to refinish the door panels. The headliner was an '85 (829) grey.
New molded carpet is available from numerous sources to match the interior. Somehow it all matched.

The battery box and a long cable are used to relocate the battery to the rear to help weight balance the car and improve corner weights. The preferred battery location is in the rear to counter the nose heavy engine and on the passenger side to counter the weight of the driver. For more on measuring corner weights see suspension and corner weights.
