      68 Camaro build

      So we have another 68 Camaro build thread.

      a little background... I use to have a 67 Camaro, that I built 20 but I had to sell it. No mater how many other cars I have had since I always missed my Camaro. Fueling the want was my recent racing hobby. My friend and I built a road racing corvette that we have raced at Daytona and Sebring.

      So these two cars are part of the inspiration for my new build. A first gen Camaro that can work on a track.

      It has been some time since i have updated so I thought I would share some more.

      So I found some new wheels, C5 Zo6 wheels (18x10.5 for the rear with 295's and 18x9.5 front with 275's). I think that I am probably going to change the front out to match the rear and when 295 squared on the car.

      Then after getting the wheels it was time to take out the rear end for refurbishment. this is the last of the old part to the car everything else was replaced or cleaned up. Also while working on the rearend thought it would be a good idea to mini-tub the car...

      After I got this all done i thought it would be a good idea to make something safer to hold the car while i worked on it. So i made some wheel boxes. this will allow me to safely get under the car to spray Raptor liner on the entire car. After that is done I will install the new 3" lower rear leaf springs, sub frame connectors and then start running the brake and fuel lines. Name:  IMG_8811.jpg

      68 Camaro build

      I like the look of the Z06 wheels, did you have to use wheel spacers to get them to work?

      for the wheels I have a wheel spacer in the rear (if I remember correctly it is either 1" or 1-1/2"). Currently on the front I do not have a spacer, I think that this is only possible because of the Speedtech suspension. I still might add another spacer to the front to push the wheel further out to the edge of the fender, but that is more of a "B" priority.
