LOL...That was a peanut shell! 1) go over the entire car and note what parts will be needed and at what cost. DO NOT. Under ANY circumstances let the wife get a hold of this notebook! 2)Slowly remove parts and sort and mark EVERY bolt, screw, nut,clamp bracket..EVEN if it's in bad shape and must be replaced. Throw NOTHING away.Again, if caught tearing the car down,casually and most importantly calmly state "you're playing around with the car a bit". 3) begin the body restoration..weld and/or bolt in necessary sheet metal..DO NOT stay up late doing this..spread the work out over as long a period of time as possible. Keep track of time invested and NEVER let the Camaro occupy more time than the wife. Even by a few minutes...she'll know which one is getting more of your attention! 4)Best to paint the car with everything stipped and apart. If you can use little or no masking tape prior to painting, you're doing GREAT! 5) After it's painted, begin the final assembly..DO NOT let any kids, wives, buddies, or pets in the garage after the car is painted..NO ACCEPTIONS! 6) Throw in the fresh motor and trans and CRIUSE!
