    Hey there new member. Been using the site for some time for help and ideas and finally decided I should join. I bought a 1977 z28 last March to do a full resto on. When I was a kid my mom had a 77' type LT and the steel bumper and second gen camaros have been a soft spot for me ever since. I'm a painter in a body shop so I've put a lot of time into the car with the help of a body man at work who replaced the quarter panels and did a fair bit of patch work on the what has been deemed the "rust rocket". It now has new fenders a cowl hood and a new door skin.

    This is when when I brought it home

    This is it as of yesterday before I reprimed it.

    Looks good! What part of Alberta are you in? I was born and raised in Calgary.

    Thanks guys. Looking forward to having it on the road this spring. I'll do a project thread when I have a few. I'm out in Strathmore Da-bigguy, but I've always lived in and around Calgary.
