New to team camaro

Hi my name is Matt my username is Gibby. My Grandpa worked at GM many years and in 1967 was promoted to line supervisor of the Norwood, Ohio Camaro plant. He was based there but also helped in Cali. when they needed. He retired in 1982 due to cancer and passed away when I was 13 but since I can remember I have wanted a first gen Camaro never worked out until this week finally purchased a 1968 Camaro from Norwood. It was ruff but I have put in many long hours already. Someone decided it would be a great idea to cover it in 1/8-1/4 inch of bondo. I have found little dents that can be worked out but only one bad rear quarter panel fix not even rusted. I was pretty lucky bought it not knowing what was under there.
