    update

    Well i got in a little bit ago from working on body work, would have worked longer but the air compressor and air tools at night doesnt work well with my neighbors. I got most of the d/s sanded, all i have left to do is the p/s then go over the whole car with a higher grit.

    First time in a while that the camaros seen daylight.

    Welcome aboard and that doesn't look like a bad project car at all..

    You have done some great work so far, keep at it.

    I am very impressed that a 14yr old would want to tackle this sort of project instead of sit in front of the video console.

    Thanks, i would chose a car over a video game any day lol. I have always been interested in older cars and the chance to build one has been amazing so far.

    more progress

    Didnt get to sanding more like i planned earlier but decided to take out the gas tank instead. All went smooth except for the stupid strap bolts that were stripped so i had to spin them out with vise grips. I might be pulling the motor today if my friend calls me back, was planning on taking it out next week but weather calls for a week of rain/snow mix:mad: yet today its 60 out.

    Gas tank taken out.

    Thanks, I already got them back on lol, I was waiting for my friend to call back to see if we can pull the motor today or not, and I got bored so threw the wheels back on.
