    Jason's 67 pro touring Camaro

    Like to get a build thread started. I started with a 67 6 cylinder car. Now a 327 Scat etc with aluminum heads big roller cam. Edelbrock air gap. Quick fuel carb mated to a 01 Camaro T56 trans.
    Paint job went South so I rescued car. The. Proceed to cut out floor, trunk and frame rails. I installed an AMD full floor, trunk , narrowed frame rails and dynacorn minitubs
    Currently mocked up with Speedtech subframe and rear torque arm with rear a narrow 53.75" ford 9"

    Just raised the tunnel last week with Speedtech tunnel mod kit but I added 4" to accommodate the T56 longer shift point.
    It's Headed to the rotisserie next week after working on it 2 years.
    Got some Forgeline ZX3 R wheels black barrels and titanium centers with 14" wilwood aero 6 for front and 14" aero 4 for rears.
    I'll ha e to figure out the picture posting.

    Do yourself a favor. Be sure you raised your tunnel enough to get the top bolt of the T-56 out. I dropped my motor in with the trans already bolted on so it was never a thought until now that I have to pull the motor on a finished build to change an oil pan gasket and can;t get to the top trans bolt

    After a 6 grand paint job gone bad, and my Speedtech rear suspension cradle not fitting between a crinkled frame rail, I decided to cut the car apart and go pro touring. I am a water tower builder contractor. I think it is easier to push 3/4 or 1/2 inch plate steel where i want it than this sheetmetal but one year later I got a new full floor, trunk. mini tubs, outer fenders, and all my Speedtech front and rear suspension mocked up. Front downtube bars mocked up, ridetech Stainless Full Cage mocked up. Now headed to rotisserie in about a week.

    Billet Specialties Camaro Hinges

    Billet Specialties leaves no detail unattended. Each hood hinge is precision 3D machined on both sides of the arms for style from any angle. Precision bearing pivots. Stainless button head fasteners attach the hinge assembly to the vehicle offering an atheistically superior look over standard hex head fasteners. Available in polished, black anodized or raw machine finish to match your style. The gas shocks are now included.

    Any By the way if your in Arkansas, I'm using D and D Specialty Cars of Van Buren. Check them out. Very impressive shop.
    Dale and Stacy Johns run it. From research and what I've seen so far on my build, and his shop full of deep pocket customs, they run a first class operation.
    I'll keep it coming.
    I viewed body shops and builders all over Arkansas. Never stepped foot in a shop I was impressed with until theirs.
