    Did some work on the camaro yesterday evening.
    made a nice patch for the right corner of the trunkfloor.

    and some small patches.
    the floor is too good to replace for a new one. but it is also alot of work to patch some pinholes.

    did some other patches but that foto's come next time need to grind them first.

    Just read up on your progress. I vote for blue with black stripes, then the orange. Hope it is going well.

    lovely that blue camaro,
    i'm currently switching in my mind to orange ( custom ) or blue

    i saw picutures of mark ascenzo his camaro that is a damn nice color i'm leaning to.
    thanks THESALBOY i will do.

    ordered a lot of parts like, SS/Z28 grille,
    front spoiler, a lot of weather strips and everything i think i need before sending the car to paint
    my new rear quarter, radiator support, and 2 inch cowlhood all from AMD

    i bought a smallblock 350

    GM 3970010
    number at the oilfilter is 010 ( high nickel ???? )

    it is a CKR engine so 73 or 79 it's an 2 bolt block thinking about buidling it to a badass stroker and convert it to 4 bolt or with an engine brace.

    i have cleaned the engine this evening, tomorrow i will move the engine and clean up the garage, and then starting the welding.
