Hi From South West England.
Hi Folks, Just dropping by to introduce myself. I am Paul, I own a small trucking company in the far south west of England, I am married with a 2 year old daughter and I have a 67 Camaro that I am restoring.
The Car was recently imported (Nov 2011) and came to England from Florida, it is utterly rusty, very incomplete and is a big project.
I paid way too much for the car by the time I paid all the import taxes as well as the purchase and shipping but I am making progress with it now and I have it stripped and many parts cleaned and restored, I have also been lucky sourcing parts from a variety of places including ebay and some of the bigger companies that sell parts and will mail them to me here !
The car is an early California built Coupe, 67, was originally Gold with a Gold interior and a 327, I got it in primer red with a broken 327 that turns out has a 350 crank in it and a TH350 trans. No original seats, carpet, headliner or trim remains, it was a mix of what the previous owner could find in a dumpster.
Since it is so bad I decided to build the Camaro I want rather than restore it, the plan is to do the body Black and the interior Deluxe Red, 350 or 383 and the TH350 for now.
There are a few areas I need some advice with and I guess I will be posting in the tech sections over the coming months !
