Newbee 1st gen. Camaro

Hello, I may be long winded here. I purchased my wife a 1968 Camaro from one of those internet dealers. Sight unseen. A little disappointed. I paid too much. Shame on me.
Anyhow.... The steering was all over the place. This is where I am at.
New steering box, front QA1 coilovers, disc brake kit from CCP, master cylinder, brake lines in front and a garage front end alignment compliments of youtube.
I purchased a caster - camber gauge. Toe in and Camber were way off. The rag joint fell into 3 pieces when I took out the steering box. I should be finishing up everything this afternoon and starting the car with all these new components. I am not sure what or how this will go. I am open to constructive criticism or whatever you guys might offer.
I figured I would throw this out to you while having coffee and getting my game plan together.

BTW we are total Chevrolet muscle car people. I have had a 1965 Malibu SS that has not gotten any attention in 2 months. But my beautiful wife deserves her own wheels.
Trying to get her in the drivers seat soon
