67 project progress...

I've owned this 67 since 1978...and this is the 3rd paint job I've done on it over the years, and at my age now, I hope will be the last, so , i want to get everything the way I want it once and for all...so here's were I'm at....
after 4 1/2 years on waiting for the painter to do his thing ( an unfortunate side effect of bartering for a paint job, after doing my part, I was married to seeing the deal to fruition, no matter how long it took), I got the car back in April, started the total tear down for brake and suspension upgrades...
going with a Right Stuff 4 wheel disc conversion with all new brake lines and steel traded flex hoses front and rear, Hotchkis TVS suspension front and rear, with a 3" drop, powder coated sub frame, gas tank and fire wall insert. Modified heater core,radiator and water pump (to eliminate rubber hoses and worm gear hose clamps
Here are a few photos of where I'm currently at...hope you enjoy

Wow...he did a great job on the paint. Are those rear fenders stock? They look like they've been stretched.

She looks sexy af.

Re: 67 project progress...

Thanks for the compliment, the color is an aftermarket version of the 5th gen "Synergy Green", we like to call "Grinch Green"...but no, the fenders are not stock,not exactly "stretched", like you would typically find on a "Pro Street" car, rather mine has "corvette" inspired flares,and on the front fenders as well, it was the popular thing to do in the 70's, and when I was 18, the last thing on my mind was worrying about the "originality" of the car being adversely effected by modifying the car....no one, at least my age at the time, ever thought a 1st gen camaro would be bringing the kind of money they bring in today's market, but , oh well, I didn't keep this 67, or my 69 (of 40 years) because I had the foresight to cash in later on, I have them because I like them,and I want them they way I want them....that's just me, different strokes for different folks and all that...it would simply take way more money than I have to spend on a car to put the car back to original, and besides, as I mentioned, I'm not particularly interested in keeping the car "original"....I just want to have fun working on it, then driving it ....
here is a shot of the front fenders

Re: 67 project progress...

Here is a little piece of advice. Get a good car cover. Years ago when I got my car painted I used some plastic to cover it with. One day when I removed the plastic I noticed the paint had bubbled in a few places. I was in shock. It happened to a buddy of mine when he used plastic to cover his 67 Camaro. He said there were little bubbles all over the roof. This happened in the summer so you might get by since the weather is cooling down but I wouldn't take a chance.

Re: 67 project progress...

appreciate the advice,
the plastic was just a temporary shield from when I pressure washed the subframe and undercarriage ...it's already been removed, and I do have a nice soft cover for it...paint is such a fragile thing isn't it...which is why I went with powder coating the frame , gas tank, firewall, and all steering and suspension components.....those things will just hold up better with powder coating rather than paint...
