I had a few folks ask if there are any pictures on the progress of our Z11. We have been working on her for a little over a year and it has been slow going. We now have her home and have started to assemble. Take a look if you would like. Thank You, Jim

How in the heck did you get the dog house to stay on the car while being painted without the front sub frame being attached? I would have thought that the radiator support would be needed to support the weight of the hood and fenders. I guess it is possible to remove the sub-frame without disassembling the front sheet metal?

I thought the shop would paint the car with the fenders off. On one of my many visits, I saw the fenders and hood were on and aligned. The shop had painted over 10 1st gen Cammaros that I had seen so I figured he knew more that I (not hard to do). The difficult part was re-installing the inner fenders with the sub-frame in place. I was struggling to put them on when he showed me how to do it. He losened the bottom fender bolts pulled out slightly from the bottom and the inner fenders poped right in with the sub-frame already bolted inplace. I didn't think it could happen but I was wrong.

I still don't get it. What's holding the front fenders on with no subframe and radiator support.

Also what did you do to keep it from bending in the middle without the subframe. I have heard this is a problem on convertables.

The fenders bolt at the firewall on top and on the bottom. If I remember correctly, I don't believe there are any fender or inner fender bolts to the sub-frame. Even the inner fender brackets attached to the firewall.
We kept the body stable by Tac welding square stock across both doors and across the front and back. Re-attached the crossmember for good luck. It seemed to be stable for transporting on and off the trailer. I picked that up from a post on this site. I agree this may have been unusual but seemed to work out OK.

To answer your question, this is a 350/300 4spd pwr/top Van Nuys car with correct numbers throughout. I have had fun pulling it apart with my boys and a few of the neighborhood folks. I think it's already worth its weight in gold in memories which is good since thats about how much I have in it. Thanks for all the comments. Jim
