    68 Camaro #2 pops and I fun times.

    Hi all my dad and I are building our second 68 Camaro. So I thought I would post the build and all the fun.
    Car is a RS that I’ve had for 22 years and needs a lot of work. This will be a street car for the most part with some track fun. Name:  670835B0-FBFE-4526-9BE1-968C9CE1FFFC.jpg

    Got a lot done this week. Sub frame painted , front end all together , motor and transmission mounted up. Waiting on headers and starter then might fire the motor just to hear how it sounds.
    Here is some pics of the work we got done and the dyno results. Name:  1C7C8D9A-7977-4710-B5A4-BA36B3C09503.jpg

    Well didnít get much done this weekend. Was going to mount the headers then install the sub frame. Had a set back the headers I went with was headman they hang way to low and hit just about every thing. Was going to fix the place they hit but way to much time to raise them a 11/4. So sending them back and taking the sub frame over to lemons next week to have a set of headers made to fit the Ride tech true turn and tucked up nice and tight. Here is some pics of the problems I ran in to. Name:  0199A000-D052-458B-94C6-5AB2A77A2A5C.jpg

    Great looking project! Is that going to be your ground clearance for your headers?

    Well work got in the way of getting the sub frame over to Lemons to have the headers built. Was not going to be able to get there for a few months so instead of holding the work up I would try and build some. Itís a slow pace but is fun and I think there looking good. I should have them done next weekend. Hereís some pics of the headers so far. Name:  B7794322-0623-4DDD-93E6-3966F3000F7A.jpg

    I have both frame mounts but went with the small block ones when I started building my own headers. I didn't like the way it off set the motor and raised it.
