    Does this look right? I know I have to get 2 more U-bolts to replace the T-bolts.

    Went to the pate swap meet Saturday and picked up Clutch pedal and linkage kit from Classic Chevy Parts (not pic worthy) but I thought this was.....[​IMG][​IMG]

    Patch where E break goes through the floor. My first metal patch. Not quite finished. I think I have the welder dialed in as best I can.

    It has been a while since I updated this....I had to have a valve job (aortic valve replacement) done in December so progress has been slow. Before surgery I got this pan cut out and fit. Recently cleaned up the work area.... a clean pile of car parts looks better than a dirty pile of car parts. [​IMG]

    Thanks Robert!
    Got that all straightened out and fully recovered from surgery now. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on my home remodel so hopefully I can spend more money on the Camaro. Wife and I are expecting baby #2 in August which may work in the other direction on the money.
