Re: New to Camaros
I just finished te replacement of pretty much everything but the roof on my '69, so I know exactly what you're about to embark on. Other than quarters, which everyone recommends buying from AMD, you're not likely to have too many issues with pieces fitting- I used stuff from Dynacorn, CHlL, and GoldenStar, and everything fit very well.
I'd recommend taking out one piece at a time so you've always got the rest of the existing stuff to refer back to. I mounted my shell on a body jig so the factory mounting points were kept in position, and started with one rocker at a time. I did the inners and outers on both sides, and also had to replace the lower door jamb and inner quarter on both sides. Once those were done, I replaced the inner and outer wheelhouses, then took out the floor, entire trunk and frame rails together. The pieces to replace those all went in at once, using the jig to align them.
I installed new door shells next, using the old quarters to align them, and was then able to use the door shells to align the new quarters. The quarters, deck filler and tail panel were then replaced together.
There's a thread in the Build Projects section with a link to my photobucket album. I'm on an iPad right now, so I don't have the link handy.
