    8yrs later and I now have it in Pa. I need to blow the cobweb off and do some cleaning and inspection. It's been sitting since 2009 so I got my work cut out for me.

    I got to put 30 miles on it and then it went into storage due to new job.

    Couple of things I want to change is front springs, and fuel system. That loud buzzing from the pump is not going to cut it. Might go back to a manual pump and bend some new lines unless I can reuse the one braided steel lines somehow.

    I've always used mechanical pumps myself. I use a Holley #12-327-11 110gph pump

    So It sat for some more before I finally done anything to the car. I've been busy with other projects around the house and with the family. I told the wife I was done working on other people's crap, I'm working on my camaro.

    So, I ordered Moog 6450 front coil springs, fuel lines and hardwares to bend new lines for the car, installed a carter mechanical fuel pump, and will be cleaning off the dust and empty out the cab so I can work on it. Right now it's on jack stands to make it easier to work on but i need some parts to keep going!

    Apparently I need to relearn how to post pictures as on other sites I was able to just attach the picture from the phone and no other steps to take. If I recall I have to host the pictures on a picture site and then attach the link.

    Try these, one is the Camaro on jackstand right after I just blew dust in the air. The other is the new mechanical pump I installed.
