69 Camaro B/S
I figure since we have 18hrs of driving left this would be a good time to start this thread........ I'll get back to the road trip but a little history on the car first.

I bought this car back in 97 and ran it on the street for a few years. Around 2000 I pulled the motor and planned my first engine build. Long story short life got in the way and the car sat.
Around 2009 I was able to regularly go racing with my old man and it wasn't long till we were talking about building it into a stocker. 2 things I was sure of....big block and stick!!!!

I spent the next 5 years collecting parts and slowly picking on the car until 2014 when I started racing super comp. Unfortunately progress came to a screeching hault until a months ago when a deal was made half way across the country.......

Big shout out to Tim Tosto and RCE on building 1 bad *** piece. I can only hope it runs half as good as it looks.

Re: 69 Camaro B/S
It's been a long journey but I'm almost at a point to start building the car.....
I was able to get the firewall sandblasted but spent the last month on my back hand scraping the underside. Should be ready for paint this week.

Overall the car is in decent shape for spending its life in New England. I will need to have a section of the drivers floor replaced due to a hack job from the past and the drivers side rocker developed some cancer from the years of sitting.

If all goes well I should have it rolling and heading to the chassis shop by the middle of February.

Re: 69 Camaro B/S
Had a couple productive days....

Got most of the bottom Finnished. 1 coat of POR and 2 coats of Satin black.
The Moser rear was the first thing I bought back in 09. Dragged it out of the corner and after a few hrs of cleaning laid some painted.
Also got the upper control arms together. Afco bushings, Global West cross shafts and Extended low friction ball joints.

Re: 69 Camaro B/S
Oh man, it's sooooooo nice to see progress....
After a month wait the Global West shackles came in. Driver side was a absolute nightmare buy passenger side went smooth

Everything is mocked up for now. One of the last things will be welding the Calvert perches, I'll safety wire the rotors and calipers then.
