    Hello, I'm restoring a camaro that has gone through a lot and I hope that she will see the glory days again. Could you fellas give me good tips along repairing?, thanks.

    Thanks everybody! Nice to read how much knowledge towards these great cars you can find here, without that I wouldn't never be able to try repair her the right way, unlike the owner who had her before... I will post pictures about worst rot locations soon, hope someone follows and discuss this post :)

    So here she is, under a blanket. Not anything fancy, I didn't want to remove cover because it's raining (again) yeey this summer. But I hope I could start repairing already

    Hi and welcome to the board. This thread is probably better suited for the Projects forum :)

    I know what you mean, this is not a complete restoration, just as far as it would not have any rust spots, and the interior is in great shape and mostly original so I don't need do anything for it. But I really know what you mean :)
