    That cowl is an overlooked area a lot, nice detail work there. Just noticed the right hand drive, how'd I miss that?

    I don't think I've seen anyone use bed liner on the cowl yet

    When I had my other camaro sand blasted, I raptor lined the whole underside, I also went yeh may as well, and went over the side cowls and dash panel with the raptor liner gun.

    Was super impressed at how clean it made that section look, so did not hesitate to do it to this one, I did stop however at the under windscreen area, as I am not to sure how the butyl windscreen tape will stick to the raptor stuff

    Took a little bit longer than hoped from the powdercoaters, but they did such a good job, do not care.

    High temp coating, also some other goodies arrived, new battery cables and custom length plug leads

    Its interesting seeing the right hand steering set up like that. I guess they must put the heater core and evap box on the lft side?
    Its like looking at an image in a mirror. Everything looks so backwards to me :)

    Anyway nice project. What color you have in mind for it?

    Now that i have the new engine harness installed, car no longer runs, it appears fuse box has been burnt in the past and someone has jumpered wires to keep it going

    Like everything with these cars, it just snow balls, so inside the car under the dash, removed centre console and I am met with this, think its time for a while new wiring harness for the car
