    Still have to grind it down and smooth it out. The center hole was left unwelded because it will be cut out and the original hole will be used for my 4sp shifter. I left it in place as a guide to make sure I got the rest of the panel lined up and welded in place..

    More updates to come as work progresses.
    Thanks for all the support..

    That was no problem grabbing it for you bud. Gave me an excuse to get out of the house and meet CamaroDoc. You didn't waste any time getting it in there that's for sure!

    Got a little more done on the 67. No pics, sorry. It was all under dash wiring. All original gauges should be in working order now.

    Trying to locate some missing interior pieces I didnt know where missing. I need the pinch edge moulding that goes up the inner door jamb for the rear side panels..

    Carpet will be installed very soon. It has been layed out in the den for a few days now. Trying to get it to lay as flat as possible so the install is a bit easier. Will get pics as carpet goes in.

    Picked up a 4L80e and a 2sp Powerglide this week. 67 is getting the glide, the 80e is for my dually.

    Updates on the car. Well, I've been side tracked with kids bday's and Easter. Been extremely busy with some side businesses.
    The sub frame is back on the car and the front sheet metal has been reinstalled. Firewall is almost done. New brake booster still needs installed. Called CPP and picked up the complete willwood front disc brake setup. Monster rotors and 4 piston calipers. So much for wanting to run my 15'' rally wheels, need at least 17'' wheels to fit brakes. Also with that order came, weld in sub frame connectors, new leaf springs, and poly bushing kit.
    The hunt for new wheels will start soon. Just as soon as I get the engine and trans dropped in, I'll move on to the brakes..

    Pics coming soon.. Need to clean up my huge mess in the garage first.. LOL

    Anyone have any pics of their first gen with a big block and tall valve covers? What size brake booster did you have to use?

    You might want to invest in BBC frame mounts...they are offset and will help with booster clearance.

    Then you'll just have to find the aftermarket booster that fits...:bowtie:
