God that front end is awful. Car could be fixed with a few new body panels though. haha

That Imperial Blue turns purple in certain lights so that's a no-go.

Had fender/door alignment issues on the pass side and found out it was an aftermarket fender. So I picked up an OEM fender locally and bought some patch panels for the rear quarters door jamb area. The one side has a few 1/8 holes under where the flare goes. The other side was ok but there is a rusty brace in the unibody behind it so I have to cut access anyway. Still under $200 total for all the metal work it needs...I can deal with that! haha

Yeah, I might as well. Not sure how well the "tilter" will work that I borrowed last time, I may end up getting an actual rotisserie. I've pretty much decided that to do everything right the way I want to it won't be done this summer, so I can take my time and do it well. The Beretta took a total of 9 months, and there's a lot more work to do with this Camaro than the Beretta had. Custom body work, rust repair, engine build, EFI retrofit...

Hit 50 degrees out yesterday so I got some fresh air in the garage! Just in time for it to snow tonight... Also welded in the sidemarker on the pass side and fender to the extension. I picked up a big kit of weatherpack connectors and a firewall bulkhead to clean up the wiring really nice.

Next step is pull the springs out completely and slam it on the bump stops. Then build my inner fenders to clear and full compression.

Holy hell - go big or go home on those weatherpack connectors.

Where did you find those?

Got the Caspers kit from Summit...like $60. Crimper is on its way from Amazon.

Pulled the springs out to see how low I can take it. It's gonna look good slammed!
