    Hey everybody!
    I have been on the sidelines here at Nasty for a while now. I have been documenting my project on YouTube, but I figured it was time to start a thread here.

    The car came as an old drag car. It had no drivetrain, or interior. I plan on going mostly Mod, less resto on the car :). The current plan calls for:
    * eRod (LSA?) engine (I am in CA)
    * t56 6 speed
    * 9" Moser M9-style rear end with 4 link
    * Coil-overs with disc brakes all around
    * Custom interior (the most ambitious part of the project, we'll see if that sticks!)

    I am currently planning on doing all the work myself. Thus far, I have stripped the outside of the car and epoxied it. I have done the rust repairs on the floor pans. I have some trunk work to do, then I am on to body work.

    I hope others can learn from my mistakes, and that we can all share cool ideas!

    I don't have a lot of pictures of the project to date, but I will snap some from the videos themselves.

    Some pics

    Here are some pics from when I picked up the car almost two years ago (wow! time flies).

    Rotisserie!

    I put the car up on the rotisserie right away. It is still up there today

    Stripped and epoxied

    I stripped down the outside of the car, and shot it with two coats of PPG DP50LV epoxy.

    Floor pan rust repair

    The full passenger floor pan was replaced, from the toe board to the rear seat.

    The driver's side required two patches under the front and rear seat.

    A view from the bottom as I was putting on the epoxy. Note - I have not stripped the bottom of the car yet. Only the places I was working on.

    Good job.
    Here's a pic of mine I ordered new in '77 for motivation.

    Nice COPO! The owner of many Z's! I had a 1974 Z28 years ago.
    Question for you if I may (I am new here), how did you see my post so quickly? I have subscribed to the project forums overall, but I think that only sends updates once a day.

    I select New Posts and whenever I see a title with 1977 Z28, I'm all over it like flies on sh!t, cause it was my very 1st car I ever ordered new. I love the 77 Z28.

    Hey Scott! Nice to see you! Yeah, it was not much to look at when it was together. Haha
