FINALLY on the road!

I worked a trade deal back in January with the owner of a paint/body shop (Mariposa Auto Body). My C5 for this 1968 Camaro. It's come a long way and still has quite a long way to go. Next on the list is interior. I've already collected a dash pad, door panels, rear panels and a TCI Outlaw quarter stick style shifter, all that need to go in still. Then it's sound deadening, carpet, etc.
Here it is back in January:




And the new Glasstek 6" cowl hood

Re: FINALLY on the road!

Put Weld Prostars on it....15x3.5 Front and 15x15 Rear. Here is the front BEFORE I lowered it



And after



RS/SS Grille with electric hideaways going on



This is how it sits today. I snapped some really crappy pictures and the car is COVERED in dust but you get the idea.

Re: FINALLY on the road!







It'll actually be headed back to Mariposa soon to get some paint mistakes fixed....then it's home for good

So basically here's what it's got

468 Cubic Inch Big Block Chevy
200-4R Automatic with overdrive, lockup and a 3500 stall
Narrowed 9" rear with locker and 3:73 gears
Wilwood disc brakes on all 4 corners
Weld Prostars with 31x18.50 Mickey Thompson Sportsmans
Autometer gauges
Power windows
Brand new painless wiring harness and weather stripping

Body mods:
Front upper and lower fenders molded together
Shaved marker lights
Stretched quarters 1 1/2"
uhhh the rest escapes me at the moment lol


Like I said, it's got a long way to go, but I'm loving it. It's a fun little car that cruises nicely

Here's a crappy vid of it getting loaded onto my trailer after paint....then it went straight to Jeff and he worked his magic little hands on it.

Re: FINALLY on the road!

Looks very nice.

Why did you cut the lip on the front of your hood?

Because with that lip in the way it's a PITA to get my big ole mitts under the edge and lift it up. You can't see it when the hood is closed and it's much easier to open now. It's a cleeeen cut too.
