Re: Florida Cracker Z28 Restoration
Over the years the camoros sat, I did get the opportunity to paint a few cars, change out a couple of floorboards, hang a quarter, do cowl repairs on a Mustang, build a couple of roll cages, etc
Also there are replacement body panels for everything now days.
Iím starting to look at things differently now. Especially after seeing the threads here with people restoring worst cars than this .
Both cars got moved to workshop space where the is more space to work on them. Iíve subjected my neighbors to years of automotive related noises and smells. Iíll give them a break this time around.
The donor car is rustier than I remembered and yellow car is looking much more repairable now, so I decided to keep the Z28 a real Z28 and completely restore it. It will be more labor, but itís best way to do it.
The lower part of the car is fairly solid where it counts. Thereís really no rust on the rockers, lower firewall, frame rails or tail panel.
The disassembly process begins:
