I have been on this forum for many years and have my Campari for over two decades during which time I have only been collecting parts but never had the time or the means to work on it. I still don’t have the time or the means but figure I best get started before I die of old age.The car is a total basket case, my parents bought it new and it is the car that brought me home from the hospital when I was born, sentimental value is the only reason I am restoring it.
Today I started the floor, the floor was totally gone so I had purchased a full floor with toe board to fix it with. Those car shows that replace a full floor in one episode...well they lie!! It is much harder work than you think, it took about 5 hours of me and a friend with a sawzaw, grinder, and chisels to get it prepped. I going to replace the passenger side inner rocker which I ordered today, it’s in rough shape.
I did manage to get out the rear seatbelt, I have broken two bits trying to remove it and finally I just chilled out the floor around it (see photo). I will post more pictures as I make progress.
