My 67 L78 Build

Well,

This January I decided to do a ground up restoration on my 67 L78 Camaro. So, I have been accumulating parts, restoring original equipment and with the help of a good friend performing necessary body work.

Here is where I am to date:
1) body completely disassembled and on rotisserie. There was very minor rust that was patched up in the 70's. We are removing the bondo and welding the bad spots.

2) sub frame completely refurbished and powder coated.

3) Engine rebuilt professionally....balanced and blue printed.

4) Trans and 12 bolt refurbished.

5) All chrome rechromed.

6) Inner fenders, rad support, head lamp bezels, etc... powdercoated.

7) Hood hinges and latches replayed.

8) 4 piston power disc brakes completely refurbished.

9) New SS brake lines, tank, fuel lines.

10) All nuts and bolts refurbished or replaced.

11) rebuilt console gauges and tach.

12) New headliner, carpet, moldings.

Waiting for soda blaster to completely clean body and fenders....then painting will begin!

That's sounds like it's gonna be a badass ride. Lots of fun also (the work part). Post up lots of pictures.

Removing the header panel. I found the original white bumble bee stripe on the header and fenders.

Assessing the damage. The tunnel was torn and tattered. There were 2 small holes in the floor ( rust from inside the car). And finally, there were pin holes in the trunk.

The only bondo found at this point was on the trunk floor.

In my mind, I was struggling with how I would repair the tunnel. It was a mess from a broken driveshaft.

I documented the headliner from many angles before removing it.
