Hi guys and gals,
Here’s a few pics of the progress on my Camaro project. ‘72 K code car, engine/trans long gone. LS3 restomod. Picture heavy. I’ll keep you posted and pictures and information come available.

Kind of amazing how good that car looked on the trailer, and how much work it's needing when undressed. Off to a really good start looks like.

Here are some updates on the bodywork. My original big opening SS radiator support is shot to bits. Rust and heavy pitting. I will deliver to the bodyshop a used core from a non-Z28/SS car that is in way better shape. I'd hate to buy an Asian repop with same smaller opening. Oh well, stuff happens after you send the body off to the stripper.

Looked like a solid base when I bought it, but once you get to disassembly, you get to see all the hidden rust and pitting. Car is not as bad as other projects but the work needed adds up rather quickly $$$

That’s what is common these days. These cars often have a hidden history. I just roll my eyes with the FB appraisers that see a few pictures of a car and say it’s worth a million dollars. They always look better in the pictures and you never know what you’ll find digging into a project. There shouldn’t be that much corrosion on the roof not being a vinyl top car
