      69 Camaro & LSA in NZ

      Hiya All, started a rebuild on a 69 Camaro, like all these projects it immediately grew in every way, here's the car at the start.

      Once we started into the original car we found the usual rust, old repairs etc. so ended up with bringing a Dynacorn shell down here.

      And so now the real work starts!
      I'll probably lean on y'all for advice, we just don't have that many pro touring builds down here in New Zealand, so I love all the info on this forum.

      Thanks, Willy

      Nah it wasn't bad at all, but all these great parts were rolling in, and the cost on a new shell was way less than I thought it would be. So do it right the first time!
      And fixing a few old repairs soon adds up.

      Yes, Hoppers using it for a race car.

      Looking like fun! I'm very jealous lol you are doing what I want to do with mine, but I lack the funds to finish mine...that Morrison IRS is one spendy sob. We can share notes moving forward. I have a build thread here also.

      Yeah it's beautiful looking gear.
      Getting close to getting the rear end in now. Subframe is in, chopping inner guards & stuff away.

      I didn't have to chop my trans tunnel at all to fit the tremec...what oil pan did you end up using? Also are you running the ac compressor in the stock location? If so did you notch the motor mount hoop for clearance like I had to?

      Holley oil pan, the Wegner drive & pumps are still on the way, so haven't got to that yet.

      I wanted to retain the LSA oil cooler so I opted for the Cadillac oil pan which fits very good. Just barely hangs below the cross member.

      Right, I've got a C & R Racing radiator & heat exchanger on the way. Seemed like a good system. I'm loving how much gear is available that's already sorted for a 69/LSA/6 speed setup.

      It's like giant really ****ing expensive Lego!
