    I haven't been very active in regards to posting any current pictures since the Photobucket debacle. Thought I'd put up a couple pics showing how the car sits now. Time to work on it has been limited but buttoning up a few odds and ends in the interior and it should be pretty much done. Just installed new carpet, stereo, console, shifter, seats, seals and gauges.

    Have to say I like the red look, this is my 81 and I enjoy every mile. Good luck with the build.

    Thanks guys. Glad I'm not the only one who likes a bright red Camaro. Just a few more things to put on and I'll post some additional, better pictures. Maybe I can convince my wife who is a "real" photographer to go take some pictures. I have to put in the kick plates and the new door panels that arrived yesterday, and install a set of Kickers and the interior will be pretty much done.

    I got the new seats, dash and steering wheel in. Had to take the column apart about three different times to get the turn signal canceler to work again. If you ever try to fix yours, don't buy Dorman parts. Had a new set of door panels here, but one of them was damaged out of the box. Hopefully some replacements will show up early this week.

    Looking awesome. What are those seats?? And do they alter the seat height (I already nearly hit the roof lol)?

    They are Procar seats by Scat. I used their mounting brackets as well. They may be ever so slightly higher, but maybe about the same height. Really close.

    I've been able to get it out and cruise it around here as of late. It's finally about finished. Thought I'd share a couple pictures I took earlier today with my phone. It's been kind of cloudy out and I wish I had better light, but you get the idea. Feels good to know that you did it all with your own two hands and know-how.
