Good luck with it, Dale! What part of the state are you from?

HAHA... I'm out in the corn fields, too. Wouldn't have it any other way. If you need a GM cowl hood, let me know. Needs some work, but no rust.

Re: X11 Project

I love it out here.. now my wife would prefer closer to town, but I authorized the purchase of appliances she wanted. She's at bay for a few years.
I'll have to get with you on hood when I purchase sheet metal, within the next month or so.

Re: X11 Project

Ok, I finally got the jig complete and painted. Today I started the disassembly process. A lot of the bolts are rusted on nose like grill screws headlights ect. I realized I probably wouldn't get the pieces off W/o breaking the good ones, so off it comes as one..The fender bolts all came off no proble. The bottom of fender bolt was rusted through.

Re: X11 Project

Ok today I continued the disassembly cowl area, and interior.. I'm thinking this trunk floor is one of the worst. PO used straps to hold up fuel tank.
I found this B 4 under the rear seat back. Also 4 on the radiator core support. Assembly process numbers.??
Any thoughts.?

Looks like Fred Flinstone has been in the car..
I'm thinking I have the true definition of "Rust Bucket"

Questions.
Anyone have advise on instrument and wires removal hints advice so it's not a Charlie Foxtrot with all the wires.?

Anyone taken the subframe out with the engine still attached .?

Re: X11 Project

What are you doing to protect the integrity of the VIN tag and hidden stamped partials?

Re: X11 Project

The dash will be remove and remounted on new dash. Lock n key until then. As far as the hidden stamps not sure. Any advice would be most appreciated

Re: X11 Project

Dale, here's where to find the hidden VINs in case you don't know: Camaro VIN, Cowl Tag, and other Numbers Decoding First thing I would do is confirm whether the partial VINS match the VIN on the dash.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Re: X11 Project

Making a little progress. I think my inner rockers are better than I thought, I'll know more soon. I need to figure out a way to lift body onto jig.
