    All the new inner rear sheetmetal in place

    Quarters and tail panel on

    Door panel with Nova arm pads that Ricks Camaro sent...

    Before starting on the subframe, you can also see the smooth sheet metal that was cut out and sectioned in for the firewall

    [​IMG]

    Getting there (don't worry, ran out of time and wasn't able to get the last inner frame rail)

    Awesome work is my first comment.

    I didn’t see any indication of the doors and boot going on for the rear quarter panel alignments, did you put these on or do you have another trick for getting it all lined up

    Thanks for the kind words guys! The process has been slow but I've been chipping away when I get free time between the work and family.

    Steve, the doors were on when we welded the quarters on however we took them back off afterwards to seam seal and slick sand.

    Here's the car back in my shop getting worked on with the doors.

    And after 2 months, my bolt on VFN Sunoco hood finally arrived

    Nice firewall, how are you going to go about plumbing in a heater box and demister

    Been chipping away at it over the last two months. Should be ready for paint by the end of the month!
