New to Me '73

Thanks to PhotoBucket, I need to make a whole new thread!

I personally just bought a '73, so it will end up as a BMR / T.C. Build

It's a shame in that it is a Numbers car (307) A/C. It doesn't look like the motor has ever been touched, still has Factory Stickers in a lot of places that I never knew existed. It's been painted that is about it!

T.C.

Re: New to Me '73

Busy Week - The Camaro is Rust Free, no modifications, a Time Capsule! If it wasn't a 307 Automatic car, I would never go into it.
We tested our 2" Rear Lowering Leafs and 2" Front Lowering Coils on the car this week. I was concerned since I was replacing Original 40 Year Sagging Springs that I wouldn't get much of a Drop. In the Rear I was correct, as there was no difference. In the front we dropped an Inch. An Overall nice look!

Before;



After

The Camaro will be going over to full CoilOvers all around when I put the Torque Arm in in the next couple of weeks

Re: New to Me '73

The Re-design of our Uppers is done - we sent the plans out to get the plates laser-cut. My guys are working on the Lowers as I type this!

Some of these Suspension pieces will come off after Testing, as our Torque Arm & CoilOvers will be going on.
