    Well, It's been a while but I have not givin up just yet. I stopped working on the Camaro during the winter because it was too cold in the garage. But once it warmed up I started back on her. I ordered all of my front end parts along with my rear tub kit and roll cage. I also got my engine, 700 Hp of Chevy 540 Big Block full roller engine! :crazy: During the summer it got too hot so I went and got a AC/Heater for the garage. Now I can stay in there and work very comfortably. Turns out under all that blue paint, She has a solid body and is 99.987% rust free!

    Here are a few pictures of some progress

    Just a word of advice... Get some threaded bar and some washers and nuts to open up the lower control arm slots in the sub. Or you'll be banging on those new LCAs with a rubber mallet. IMHO. I just went thru it myself.
