    1967 Camaro LS build from Australia

    HI Everyone. This is my first post. I bought a 1967 camaro in early 2019. I thought i would buy the car to drive and enjoy. Shortly after purchase i decided to but a reverse cowl hood on. When the car was at the paint shop we decided to touch a few other things up and then things quickly sprialed out of control. The car is now undergoing a full bare metal rebuild.

    I have posted pics in this first post of the car when i bought it and then pictures of the taredown process and subframe rebuild. The car is currently at the body shop. I am expecting to have the car back with the firewall, door jambs and interior painted in colour and the rest of the body primed and blocked by the end of January. I will then put the car on a rotisserie and paint the underside, install a ridetech quadralink. The car will then get the subframe installed, sheet metal hung and return to the paint shop for final paint. Feel free to share your comments

    you know, I was wanting to know what my '68 would look like with the BFG's turned with the white letters out (instead of blackwall). Your car is very close to the color of mine, and now I know what it would look like. I think I like it better with the white letters out...

    Looks very good after turning a driveable car into a piece of metal, lol.
    But this is our hobby. Keep up the good work ! Thumps up !
    In one pic lurks a 70s Chevelle back in the garage ?
