Yes that is Exactly how I do it ! Sorry for the confusion.

Yes, you are correct. I agree I like to seam seal them.

Re: 67 Camaro, just needs a little TLC

Just imagine,... if we all (re)built cars as well as Brian and his shop does, we wouldn't be re-restoring any of them unless we wanted to change the body's color. Just by studying the pics, you can pick up LOTS of other quality tips and techniques. A solid reference thread.

This looks fantastic with perfect gaps. Before I started mine I did not understand the amount of work and skill that goes into a build like this. Mine is a booger in comparison. I have picked up many tips and please keep the pics coming.

Re: 67 Camaro, just needs a little TLC

Hey Brian! Good talking to you the other day! Yep, I'm back in town and ready to bring my baby to ya for the "final touches"... you were right! Joe's Camaro turned out awesome! I bet he is glad you got him this one instead of his F'ed up '68 Firebird...

For you all, I got back from an overseas gig in early June of this year. My car was 98% ready to roll but I couldn't wait another day!! So I "convinced" Brian to let me have her and that I would bring her back to get the punch list things completed... Well, it's been four months of hard driving and top-down fun!! Alas, I have to bring her in for her final few things...

Hey--- I started a new thread on narrowing a rear fold-down seat for DSE 3" mini-tubs in the interior section. Check it out when you get a chance.

Re: 67 Camaro, just needs a little TLC

I got the underside prepped and in epoxy.

Chris Alston G-link has arrived. Waiting on wheels and tires so I can order the fad-9 housing.

Re: 67 Camaro, just needs a little TLC

It is not at ride height yet we are waiting on motor and trans.

Lookin good Brian. Another Camaro saved by your fantastic fab skills. It was great meeting you at the plaza during the Turkey Run. I'm glad we finally found you a parking space.

Re: 67 Camaro, just needs a little TLC

Great work Brian! Will you apply undercoat to the underside of the car and the wheelwells?
