Arrow Hello from a new 1968 addict from Texas

Just wanted to say hello and that I love this board.

Two weeks ago I visited my friend which just happened to be in the process of restoring his 1968 camaro. Ever since then I have wanted to restore a 68 camaro for myself. I have some general knowledge about cars, but I really am a complete novice when it comes to repairing or restoring cars. However, my friend has agreed to help me with the project.

What would be a good step in educating myself about the restoring process (welding, certain tools, knowledge of parts, etc...).

Re: Hello from a new 1968 addict from Texas

Welcome to Team Camaro. One good way to learn about the restoration process is to read some of the good books out there about restoring cars. One of my favorites is the Camaro Restoration Handbook by Tom Currao and Ron Sessions. Another good book to have is the Assembly manual for the Camaros. These two books will give you some knowledge about first gen Camaros. Best of all is the wealth of good information on this site. Good luck!
