    nicely done on your car. i think on the first page where you were installing the sound deadening material, it looks like you have a manual. is that a restoration guide, or complete schematic of a camaro? where do you get them at?

    as soon as i am done with my 46 willys, one very similiar to yours is what i would like to do.

    thanks,
    eric

    It is an assembly manual.....very necessary. When I got my car the previous owner already had it disassembled. I would have been lost without the manual, and the guys on here. You can pick a manaul up from any restoration supplier for around $25.

    SO TRUE....my son is 22 and I am fortunate that he lives about 15 minutes away. I must have done something right because if I called him and told him I needed some help, he would be right over.

    You must be a good dad and he is a good son. I'm 44 and didn't go but about 4 miles from my parents, and I do the same, if he needs me for anything, I'm right there. I wanted me and him to do a project together, but he has worked on cars all his life, so in his retirement, he barely puts gas in one. :D But he is the one who has taught me what I know about cars and how to do bodywork (he is a body man by trade).

    I hope my son (age 6) will do the same for me when he grows up. I'm atleast trying to teach him those values anyway!!

    Teach them to work with morals and I think kids will be ok. If we don't teach them life skills then they are doomed.....they are the ones paying to get their oil changed, paying to wire outlets in their garage, paying to change their kitchen faucet. I was fortunate to have a Dad that taught me alot.....I am by far no expert on anything, but rarely do I pay to get something fixed. If I can pass that on to my kids I feel I have succeeded.
