    I want to spend evenings in the garage, but just too darn hot. I built a couple tall sawhorses last night and lost a gallon of sweat. I need to figure out how to get some circulation in there in the summer. Shouldn't be hard, it's just finding the time to do it.
    Got the Camaro body back with all the patch panels in and all coated in primer. I'm going to put a coat of POR on the underside for protection then work on finally getting her off that rotisserie and getting the suspension and wheels back under. Milestone moment!

    Wow, great to hear, Jerry!
    It would be nice to see your Z on it's own four wheels,...

    Ooh, that looks like fun, AB, and looking good!
    Last weekend we got some of the suspension under the subframe. Front springs are in, I was pretty scared of that part, and glad it's done. Dad had doubts about being able to do it at all without weight on them, but we managed. I think it might actually have been easier to put them in with the subframe upside-down. Try doing that after it's attached to the car!!
    Also got new rotors, bearings, and seals. And just for fun, put the wheels on it! Man...they need work, too.

    Still a little warm for my taste, but could be worse!

    Ahh,..original factory reproduction of the 'Tork Thrust D design (if I recall correctly). Very nice.
    Hey Jerry! Don't ya just HATE doing springs!! I've been through LOTS of them by now! YUK!
    Nice work, Jerry!
    And thanks, BTW! After FIVE passes over the bodywork, searching for defects, I sprayed the second coat of primer yesterday - nearly perfect,...Hope to shoot color and clear very soon.
    Looks like you are working out at your dads' place,...holler at me in advance and I'll come visit and see! You have my email address,...I can bring beer!
