"Bloodline" Johns 68 Camaro

Whats up guys I figured Id start a build thread over here also. I started in it 4 years ago and I am finally in the assembly stage which is exciting. Here are the plans for the car:

LS3/T56,Tsp 231/236 cam, stainless works headers, PSI conversion harness
Wegner front drive
New fabricated firewall
media blasted/rotissoried
G billet rear/Fab 9 shortened/Moser axles
Speedtech Subframe/Suspension
DSE tubs
Fesler (Baer 6S) Brakes
Ridetech Coilovers
Shaved rear tank filler hole
Vaporworx Tank
All rear body lines welded closed
Black Bentley leather Interior with red stiching
Cobra Misano carbon fiber seat
Carbon fiber hood, cowl, header, trunk,inner fenders, and spoiler
Underbody bedlined
All new sheet metal
Fesler FS905 wheels 19x12 rear with a 19x9 front wrapped in Nitto NT05's


West Coast Autocraft is giving me an insane black paint job. Heres his words on what they are doing:
Spies Hecker FP 1002 (2 coats)
FP 1002 mixed 50/50 with Spies Hecker 8015 clear (1 coat)
75% clear and 25% color (1 coat)
90% clear and 10% color (1 coat)
Spies Hecker 8015 clear (2 coats)
pull the car out of the booth and let it air dry for 3-5 days.
ti AF144Wet sand the entire car smooth with 800 grit and put it back in the booth.
Spies Hecker 8015 clear (6 coats)
Color sand (800, 1000, 1200, 1500) then polish

Heres some before shots

Re: "Bloodline" Johns 68 Camaro

Awesome! What more can I say.
I've seen you over on the Pro-Touring site. What a beautiful car.
What gauges are those? Dakota VHX? I was just getting ready to purchase some of those. The wife's response... "You just bought all new Autometer". Mine back to her, "This thing will never be done because they're always coming out with better stuff"!
I'm liking that center console as well. I too built one, but now that I'm looking at the VHX gauges, I'll need to build another one! What are you installing up front? Radio? Keep the pics coming.

68 Camaro SS... getting there!!

If I can only convince myself of this!

Thanks for the compliments. For the radio I have a Pioneer AVIC 940 BT and Kevin Oeste from V8tv made me this really cool dash insert that I need to weld in still then repaint the dash.
The gauges are VHX. They integrate the OBD2 computer and will show your Check engine light. Blinkers, high beams, 0-60, etc are all built in the cluster.

Console is done. Carbon is just resting on there for the pic which is why you can see the wood in the corner




Taillights finally get to go on..

Re: "Bloodline" Johns 68 Camaro

Love the tire/wheel/stance.

Great build. I really like everything about it, black on black, red accents, carbon fiber, LS3/T56. x2 top notch build.

Are those the high clearance SpeedTech UCA's?

Re: "Bloodline" Johns 68 Camaro

Thanks for the compliments guys. Not sure if they are the high clearance ones. They came with the subframe.

My intake manifold came yesterday and Im hoping to get it installed by Friday or next week. Depends on how soon I can get some AN fittings for it.

Re: "Bloodline" Johns 68 Camaro

Well I have some more updates. The manifold is giving me issues. The flanges need to be removed and angled upward in order for it to clear the alternator and sanden. DOH!!!! The headers fit perfectly however I may get different valve cover since I fear the carbon ones might melt. The brakes are installed and look good. Everything will be under the dash even the brake lines. Remote reservoirs will be hidden in the cowl panel that way the firewall will stay perfectly smooth and clean.


Wilwood under dash remote setup




Doesn't fit but Jamie from Ozmo is going to fix this for me.




Here is a shot of the headers and intake mounted. Firewall looks so much cleaner without all of the brake parts showing. Sexy!!!
