Two years ago I just bought this camaro. I was supposed to be an easy project. Floor pans, rockers panels, firewall was all replaced.
But when I try to make some panels ajustments before installing the quarters, something was wrong. I just realise that the car wasnt square by 1 inch.
So I had to restart from zero.
The plan with the car is a street legal racecar.

When I got it





I decided to built a jig from fisher specs to redone the floor job






I changed the inner wheelhouse/quarter structure


After that I bought a new house/garage.


mores pics to come ......

I found a local deal for a harwood hood



I sanded all the trunk area and inner structure before welding the quarters to the car amd epoxy prime it

Oh and just so you all know.....

Thats his First “Muscle Car”!! (Well, actually his second as he did the same to a ‘69 Camaro body) built a Jig, started to take measurements and ended up changing EVERY PANEL!! NOT ONE was oe when he got done!!!!

For a guy that had NEVER touched a car body...... i think he does pretty impressive work!!! And to jump both feet into this heavy of a project is really something!

Look up the gaps..... 😉
