Finally got a 69 camaro

Hello my name is josh. I recently purchased my dream car a 69 camaro. However after getting it up on the lift and looking it over real close I am finding out it is not in as good of shape as it appeared to be. Looks like it’s gonna need a one piece floor, outer wheel tubs, a rear body panel as it’s full of filler, it’s had quarter skins put on it but don’t know if they did a correct job on it. The trunk has a couple of spots in it as well. Gonna need rockers most likely inners also. I am a auto tech for a living and can do body work but this is very discouraging to say the least. I know anything can be fixed but I am going to need a lot of advise and dos and don’ts when it comes to this. Thanks for letting me join.

Re: Finally got a 69 camaro

Welcome from Texas! Did you decide not to look underneath before you made the final decision to make the purchase, or did you just hope it was all good? Do you feel like the purchase price was a good one considering the new information? Congratulations on your new Camaro. Maybe for now you can just drive your car and enjoy it and make small improvements as you see the opportunity.

Hello. Sorry for responding back so late. I will get some pics as soon as I can. I am going to replace the floor with a one piece unit. Also found the tail panel is full of bondo. The floor concerns me because of not having a jig to attach the car to inorder to keep it all square. How have you all done the pans and set the car up to keep everything square? Jack stands? Weld braces anywheres? Any info would greatly help. Thanks.
