    Hey Ken! Sorry for taking so long to respond. I appreciate the encouragement! How's your Z doing up there in the northwest??

    Been forever since I've posted anything in here. Been tons of changes since I was last able to spend some real time on the Camaro. I moved from the Austin TX area back up to where I'm from originally, Ft Worth TX area. Summer has been HOT and other projects have discouraged any work on my car but about to get back at it now that things are getting cooler and back to normal.

    The car is looking great! Amazing work with the jig. It certainly looks like it is helping with keeping things lined up while you remove the rust.

    Thanks Bigguy!! I'm certainly happy with the jig. Been a big help.


    Thanks! You're right about the family and really enjoying your thread. Looks like you've done a lot of what I'm about to do.

    ======================
    Just curious on this portion how you handled it since you had some much rot, it seems you cut out most of the area and then over lapped the top portion? I ask cause IF my 76 is fixable, I to will need to replace the driver side corner and will def be looking for pics on how others did it.

    your doing a great job, and Im also finally getting back into the garage now that the weather has let up a few degrees..
