Cleaned up nice but I did coat them with some high heat aluminum paint, not NCRS, just dont want them to rust up right away.

You're almost done with the camaro, you've got a boat and the vette...sounds as if you like to keep busy, add convertible conversion to the list and you won't be disappointed...unless its a track car.
If its a fun car, then you have all the major parts minus the top at your fingertips....go for it!!!

BTW, how deep is your garage?? you've got two cars in there already, I need one of those!
except for the two big weights in the rear corners of the trunk for convertible Camaros.......I did know why they were used but is been a while.....

[QUOTE=BOSTONCAMARO;1555401390]I really dont want to say, but I didnt pay much, we will leave it at that

it does need work, but the frame is mint and nothing is challenging when compared to the following the Corvette will be an easy resto, this will give you an idea of how redonkulous I can be...

Here are some pictures of my 67:

Here is a quick list of what has been replaced -
-all new floors
-trunk
-shock towers
-rear panel
-both quarters
-both rear outer wheel houses
-shocks
-all new bushings throughout the car
-complete used roof off a donor car as the understructure was rotted
-fenders
-radiator support
-rocker panels
-had whole car media blasted
-panel in between rear window and trunk (section of it)
-hood
-all lines
-fuel tank
-converted to 4 wheel disc etc

should have bought a done car maybe hehe, but you get the picture I am sure....car is ready to be jambed, but just broke my leg and ankle surfing, so will be a couple weeks

Doing a 68 Camaro just like you have done this one. I'm getting ready to set the floors and quarters. I used the quarters and the sail panel area also. You are much faster than I. I ended up building a rotisserie and that slowed me down a bit. I have a 73 c3 in about the condition of your's but the frame is toast on mine.

The problem I have is I have so many started I don't get any finished. A 74 Trans Am 455 SD and a 67 GTO, While working on the vettes. There should be something my primary care Doc. could give me for this illness. I guess I contracted the illness by growing up during the muscle car era. I worked at a Sunoco station, and all the coolest cars came in for Sunoco 260.

Just got the rotors back, came out real nice...I think these are far superior to aftermarket replacements

Waiting for calipers, I decided to pop the console out, this car was so abused for just having 50 thousand miles on it.....a replacement console just arrived from a CF member.
