Scored a set of PTFB subframe connectors on marketplace for a steal! Put it on the pile of parts!

Looking to assemble the front subframe pretty soon here. Going with an ls motor. I realized I should probably install motor mounts now before lower control arms. I no longer have the factory mounts that bolt to the subframe and will need new ones. I have read a number of posts about ls motors installing in these camaros. By the looks of it I have read that you use the factory engine mounts? Is this true, anyone have experience with this or can you direct me to a thread. Thanks alot

Car finally off of rotisserie. Rear end all buttoned up ready to go back in. Realized I missed the front leaf spring pockets. They had to be sanded and are now being powdercoated along with a few other odds and ends. Using an oer install kit for rear end and everything is coming together nicely. Back on wheels by end of month should be achievable. Hoepfully

Finally have some wheels on this thing. Progress has been slow. But that's what happens when life gets in the way. Some pictures. Next to do is get the subframe centered and snug it up. Start putting the front back together.

Thanks, yeah between work and family and house projects, it has been difficult. But it is good to see progress being made on it. Huge grin when I was able to roll it out of the garage. Back on wheels soon, then will be working on sheetmetal this winter if all goes as planned.
