    This started its life as a base model hard top Camaro that I have removed the top and installed a rust free donor T Top roof on it, shaved the door handles and locks, custom cut fenders and Flush mounted the fender louvers, built a 3.73 posi with rear disc conversion.also build a sbc 350 for it, but thinking about putting it aside and building a 383 strokes for it. 7B30E02C-8C13-48CA-81DC-F26553932B28.png 1BFF2F85-339A-4919-8A13-2DB8F3BB0621.png 5E453A15-08CC-4674-8C2B-335A9E5BC970.png BF585267-7231-4AEC-92E0-73461E42EA33.png 66D1A7F8-C695-42AD-99CF-C398B83517C2.png FDB135C1-7075-43CB-8AFF-4317971CF1A6.png A7FB1600-7618-427D-B4E4-8D09F1EC4908.png 1896AE77-4C49-427D-BC58-DBFF2F2A6376.png 70EE6935-DA07-4170-9CB4-DE6AE0FA992F.png CFC13DFC-F018-4CD9-B2F4-87647EE281A1.png 7B30E02C-8C13-48CA-81DC-F26553932B28.png 1BFF2F85-339A-4919-8A13-2DB8F3BB0621.png 5E453A15-08CC-4674-8C2B-335A9E5BC970.png BF585267-7231-4AEC-92E0-73461E42EA33.png 66D1A7F8-C695-42AD-99CF-C398B83517C2.png FDB135C1-7075-43CB-8AFF-4317971CF1A6.png A7FB1600-7618-427D-B4E4-8D09F1EC4908.png 1896AE77-4C49-427D-BC58-DBFF2F2A6376.png 70EE6935-DA07-4170-9CB4-DE6AE0FA992F.png CFC13DFC-F018-4CD9-B2F4-87647EE281A1.png 7B30E02C-8C13-48CA-81DC-F26553932B28.png 1BFF2F85-339A-4919-8A13-2DB8F3BB0621.png 5E453A15-08CC-4674-8C2B-335A9E5BC970.png BF585267-7231-4AEC-92E0-73461E42EA33.png 66D1A7F8-C695-42AD-99CF-C398B83517C2.png FDB135C1-7075-43CB-8AFF-4317971CF1A6.png A7FB1600-7618-427D-B4E4-8D09F1EC4908.png 1896AE77-4C49-427D-BC58-DBFF2F2A6376.png 70EE6935-DA07-4170-9CB4-DE6AE0FA992F.png CFC13DFC-F018-4CD9-B2F4-87647EE281A1.png

    Also did all my own sand blasting of frame core support and other hard parts then sent to powder coating. The body was down to bare metal body work done then epoxy primed, filler primed block sanded to 220 filler primed again block sanded to 320 then wet sand to 400 sealer primed and painted 2013 Camaro imperial blue metallic.

    Beautiful color Blue. Car looks great. What are you using to open the doors? I am thinking of doing the same thing with the doors.

    The vents are actually two pieces.The vent themselves and inner ring bolted together.I would get an assembly manual to help you with your build.
