Greetings from NC (and Afgn)!!

Hey y'all!
I have been snooping around a while and finally bit the bullet and got a 68 Camaro coupe. Two unfortunate items:

1) It's a 50 foot car; looks good from 50 feet but getting closer the secrets are revealed, especially underneath where it has considerable rust.

2) I am out of the country for a while so looking for someone who can get started on it until I get back.

If anybody has recommendations for a good shop in eastern North Carolina, I'd be happy to hear them. Thanks!

Thanks! The 68 has always been my favorite. I am hoping to be back before Thanksgiving so a lot of progress could be made in the next 9 months if I can find someone.
