DW's 68 SS project Camaro

So after the last time I worked on her which was about 23 years ago I rolled her back out to take a good look and baseline the project. I removed the headliner and kick panels to clean out the many rodent nests and debris they leave behind. Then out came the front windshield, that was cracked, the back glass and the dashpad, gauges etc. All in all not a bad start for the weekend and the near future. Hopefully I can get some pics up. I don't use Paypal so is there another option for becoming a member?

On edit it appears my CC worked ...

Thanks in advance
Darrell

Re: DW's 68 SS project Camaro

Well I spent some more time and knocked down the primer, surface rust and removed the filler .... The body is solid and the seam on the 1/4 panel, although I'm not crazy about it, is still solid... Anyway a few more pics and more to come

Re: DW's 68 SS project Camaro

Ok .... so to show that progress is still being made here's an update. The doors and hood are ready for primer now waiting on body. Currently working on the left 1/4 panel that was replaced in the early 80's. Has a couple spots in the inner fender well that need to be welded then we're going to roll the lip for two reasons, one it's very wavy where they seamed it and two I want to make sure there is enough tire clearance.

Thanks for checking my build out and all comments are welcome.

Re: DW's 68 SS project Camaro

Ok so I'm back with an update ... I kinda wish I would have waited to start this thread so it didn't drag out so long ... But anyway I decided to install mini tubs and while I was there I replaced the outer wheel house as well due to some previous damage. So far so good on the driver side.
