I had good luck with plain old duplicolor paint and their vinyl and fabric paint when I redid my interior black and its held up pretty well so far. Also if you're going to have the interior apart to paint, maybe it would be a good time to lay some sound deadening and take out any rust lurking under the carpet? I can tell you it makes a pretty huge difference.Thanks for following along everybody.
Birthday boy has dove on in. He is going for something the the gray/silver kinda gunmetal or titanium look for the body and all black interior.
He did pick up some nice modern leather power seats to put in it. I will have to assist in the fabrication there as the mounting points for the new seats absolutely push the limits on width.
they are nice sets though so we will make them work power and all.
We did start dying some of the interior parts today.
Lucky for us we have National Parts Depot (NPD) about 20 min form us and they stock SEM paint/dye. They dont carry much for the G body caminos but they do have the dash caps in stock which saves me a ton on shipping cost.I had good luck with plain old duplicolor paint and their vinyl and fabric paint when I redid my interior black and its held up pretty well so far.

learn something new everyday....Just to let you know that 1980 is not a G-Body, It's a A-Body, G-Body started in 1982
officially GM Called the 64-81 A-Body's
But a lot of people do call the 78-87 a G-Body
See what it says for 1982
Thanks. Not gonna lie the dash is the part i am least looking forward to but it really needs to be done. I really want to get behind the dash and check the airducts which i can see are not hooked up to the vents.Member HkdUp87 had a really nice photographed thread on rebuilding dash by adding a dash cap.
PhotoBucket later tried to break the internet and links to images were lost.
The good news is that I caught a backup before the images were made inactive.

I want to go with the lock n load system which bolts to the bed then secures the bike at the foot pegs. No straps needed and no pressure on the front wall of the bed. My son hates trucks with the tailgate down and wants to load diagonal and use straps. I may have to veto him on this one.Are you planning on adding mounts to the bed to keep the bike strapped down?
this is what i would like to go with.Do you think the factory tie down points are sturdy enough to strap a motorcycle down?
I am not sure what would happen driving around with an El Camino tailgate down.
Pitbull makes a great restraint system that does not use any type of strap,ratcheting or otherwise.
