Another New Member

Hi !
Today marks the beginning of my restoration project. Grandpa left me his 68 RS convertible (which I grew up in the back seat of) and it is in need of complete frame off resto.

I will be ordering many new parts, and I think I read that TC members get a discount at Ground Up restoration? If so, that's great. I'm sure I'll be posting questions as the restoration progresses, as this seems to be the center of the first generation camaro knowledge base.

Look forward to tapping in to your experiences.
Thanks!!!

Hey, (First question always a dumb one..) I tried to sign up for a membership through paypal, but it wont let me charge my paypal account directly, its forcing me to use an echeck. Is that normal?

68's are the best!!!
Here are some pics. I lied a little in the original post. I did start restoring this several years ago, but all i ended up doing was stripping it down to pieces. Now, (that I've completely forgotten how it goes together) I'm starting to restore.
Thanks for your welcomes.

Re: Another New Member

OK, after a long year and a half of hard work (not by me) I am happy to report some progress on this frame off restoration. A little more wet sanding and polishing, and I will have this baby back in my garage where she belongs.
Then I get to have fun putting it back together.
Take a look..
