I don't have much to post, I just want to post because it's been 3 months

My rear end is still being worked on, I was meant to get it in October but that didn't happen. I sent an email out to see what the timeline looks like, so hopefully will hear back soon.
I put my order in for my strange housing ends, I should get that in 2 weeks, so that will be exciting. It's important I get this because the one I bought doesn't have ends.

In terms of my house, I put up my Little Tikes Playhouse Shed

And I set up 3 of the 4 lights in my garage and connected them to the old light, I might do conduit so it looks prettier, undecided. 4th light won't go up until I move the camaro out of the way, it's still covered in stuff from my move. Haven't really had time to do anything with it for awhile (plus, been waiting on the rear end, that ate up the camaro funds for a few months)

My next project is building a tire rack since I have 5 sets of wheels sitting on a dolly and I want them out of the way. I plan to do something like this

Other major project stealing funds from the cmaaro is my backyard, right now it's a bunch of clay and dirt, and since it's much smaller I hope to set up sprinklers by the end of the year, pavers by next because rocks are expensive.

I worded that wrong, I should have said a set of 5 wheels
1 was the spare, and then 4 are the new ones I bought for the car
I plan on selling the rally wheels when I'm done with the car, I use them to roll it around without messing up my nice ones.
I'll eventually get a set of 18" for track day

Hello everyone, I bought a 75 Camaro not too long ago and I'm doing a restomod to make it look like bumblebee. (very cheesy I know)
So far nothing has been done on this car, waiting on a few things in the mail before any work can be done.
Here is what it looks like
fe44a44391de3c7035783138388c3279.png

I'm plan on putting a lt4 motor in the car (gen V yes the title says lt1, plans change) I'm doing everything I can to research what I'll need to make this work, including new suspension, accessory drives, fuel tank etc. If there is anything you think I'm missing please let me know and I'll look into it.

The interior will need to be completely gutted aside from maybe the rear seats. I don't know what the hell the last owner was trying to do, but he totally ruined it.
Wiring will need to be redone as well since the tail lights don't work (they also never shut off so it drains the battery) but these are minor things. This has actually been finished, you can read more about it here if you are interested

The only dents on this car is a very tiny one on the nose, and another next to the reflector, no big deal, super easy fix. 0 rust from what I have found aside from the hood, but that will be cut out for the cowl I plan on adding. (or getting an entirely new hood, undecided)

Car is solid, and I can't wait to make it look pretty since it runs fine in its current state.

This is what I want it to look like what I'm done without the fake fade...again, cheesy I know

New movie came out, THIS is what it will actually look like when it's done

I also have a spreadsheet you can view. It has everything I plan on buying and it's more or less completed. If there is anything you feel like I'm missing please let me know so I can add it (aside from minor things such as fuel lines and stuff, it's things I need but will figure out when everything is in my possession)
Volo Museum last weekend

I wonder if thats someone's replica for the car, theres a lot of incorrect items on it, unless it was only used for promotional purposes outside of filming.


Edit: Got an update on my rear end, it's still a few weeks out, so it's in limbo for whatever reason. I am not sure what the hold up is, but I'm in no real rush to get this, the camaro funds are still dry haha

I got my housing ends from strange today. They look really nice and the center cap fits in the wheel without an issue, which was my only real concern.
I didn't buy brakes yet because I don't need them right now. For those not aware, this is a full float conversion so the weight of the car isn't resting on the housing bearings, if the axle snaps you don't lose your wheel. In theory can handle more power than I'd ever throw at it.
So, ya know, throwing money at problems that will most likely not exist.
The wait for the actual housing continues though.
