James' 68 Coupe project in Australia.
Hi All fellow Camaro people,
My name is James and I have been slowly restoring a 1968 Camaro Coupe from the ground up for the last few years. First and foremost, I have posted on this site once before, under the welcome wagon section. As I have been a member of this site now for quite some time(became a gold member recently), I thought I would contribute a little back to what I believe is a fantastic place to visit and learn. You guys have great knowledge and some amazing skills. I am amazed at times at the workmanship and ideas that you all come up with. This has helped me tremendously at times when I have been at the crossroads. So here I am again, this time it will have to be the build project section, for obvious reasons. Just a quick recap, I bought my Camaro from Iowa in 2007, it took a while to get here, but arrived in January of 2008. By mid year it was stripped, bagged and labelled, as per normal proceedings, and then suddenly it is 2014 and she is still a shell. Saying that, I have a family, busy job and also rebuilt, renovated half of our house, inside and out. Throw in a trip to your beautiful country, regular maintenance around the house, fixing other peoples stuff and trying to stay connected to family and freinds, well, you get the idea. Here is the achieved list for my car. New floor, new dashboard top, new passenger toe panel, repair tulip panels, cut out and weld in a new trunk floor, remove the roof and remove the passenger 1/4 and outer wheel housing. Just refitted a new outer wheel housing today. I am writing this as the epoxy dries. Next job, 1/4 goes on (amd) and then the same for the driver side. I am keeping my Camaro left hand drive, as it is legal here if the vehicle is more than 30 years old.Please do not ask me the logic here regarding this law, as I just do not know! I will add pics as I go, not necessarily in order, but pics none the less. So thanks guys for your help over the years, and I hope I can help someone also.The first few pics are what I received from the guys in Iowa.
