    I made some closeout panels to essentially "close out" the trunk area from the drivers compartment.











    Then it was time to move onto the tranny tunnel.

    Then I mounted my pedals to get an idea where I can mount the go pedal. Ignore the clutch pedal, it will be removed.



    I made a small mounting plate for the pedal to bolt to. Still needs to be finished, because I need to get a master cylinder and booster to get the brake pedal at the right spot/depth so I can properly position the throttle pedal.

    And I also mounted the battery tray in the truck. Still need to weld some bracing to the floor and the frame to support the weight.

    Finally got a brake booster and master cylinder setup for 4 wheel disc brakes, and just as I was hoping, it clears the motor.




    So since that was squared away, I was able to hook up the brake pedal to get the proper pedal position so I could mount the go pedal.

    I was able to finish welding and grinding the trans tunnel once the motor was out. I can pull the motor and tranny in one piece now, when I couldn't before with the old, slightly smaller tunnel.






    I decided that I will eventually install a Vintage Air heater/ac system down the road, so I smoothed the firewall by making a block off plate for the old heater box.





    It's amazing how many extra pieces I have been able to make out of the leftover wheel tubs and trunk floor sheet metal.







    And finally spread a coat of short strand everglass over it.

    I needed to build a support for the battery, so I used some leftover angle iron.



    And installed the new tray with a mock up battery.



    I also decided that since the removable back brace wasn't really practical for the camaro, I cut it out and welded a solid tube of dom in its place.

    And now it was finally time to start prepping the floor and trunk for seam seal and undercoating, as well as prepping out the roll cage for paint.







    So I moved it into our booth Friday after work.






    Saturday morning I realized that I forgot to make the last 4 close out panels for the inner rockers that need to be welded to some of the trunk floor, which had to be done before I sprayed the undercoating...

    Since I was in such a hurry, I forgot to take a lot of pictures, but here's the finished undercoated floor.

    Sprayed the self etching primer first, then white sealer (no pics), then viper red. My fiance stopped by and took a few pics of me spraying.

    Bernie shortened my 2 remaining link bars for me. He did a nice job, no surprise there.



    For the rest of the evening, I tore down the front subframe and sanded the subframe and axle and loaded the axle in the booth. The next morning, finished prepping out the subframe, link bars, wishbone and brackets, and loaded them into the booth.




    After cleaning and etching them, sprayed them with white sealer.

    After painting everything on Saturday, I moved onto the underside of the Camaro. Sanding, cleaning, masking, and seam sealing literally everything. Sunday morning I came back and welded 2 pieces of tubing in the 4 link brackets for a little added strength.





    Then I undercoated the floor, except for the 4 link brackets.





    My phone had a hard time focusing on the floor because of the lighting, so not many pictures of it.

    I took the suggestions of Bernie to not undercoat the 4 link brackets because of tight tolerances for the heim joints, so I painted them gloss black.






    While that was drying I took my parts out of the booth and got everything ready to reinstall.





    Big thanks to Tony and Geoff for helping me get the subframe on and the rear axle bolted in.

    Finished the body work on the firewall.





    And primed it, then got it into the booth on Friday after work.





    Sooo much masking...

    Got the tranny tunnel and lower firewall undercoated, then painted everything satin black.

    I moved the motor into my work space friday after work, but couldn't do anymore because of dinner plans.





    Saturday morning, started taking it apart and cleaning it.






    After cleaning and prepping it the best I could, I masked off what needed to go black.





    Then etched it.





    And sprayed the satin black.

    Unmasked.




    Etched.



    Sealed white.



    And sprayed Viper Red.



    Went to work in the morning and unmasked it.
