After buying a former Z/28 Super Stock drag racer just a year ago, the restoration of the body & paint is nearing completion. I tore the car down last year, removed the 10 point cage and since then the floors have been completely replaced, the stretched wheels wells have been closed in with new sections, and the body has been stripped and restored back to it's former Day 1 glory with all of it's original body panels intact.
A new sub frame has been installed, the 12 bolt was completely restored, interior is now being redone and the car will be ready for new paint and correct stripes in the coming days. Once it's back home, I'll start the dubious task of putting this Lil Green Z all back together. Here's a link to my website where you can check recent news, see the parts list, and a picture by picture restoration page detailing the way it was found and the restoration it has undergone.
The car should be finished up over the course of the next 10-12 months.
