    Stay after it Russ, it won't fix itself lol....Lord knows I've tried that too many times over the years! Looking good as usual.


    My car is now an hour away at my uncles shop as I don't have a garage now since moving to the lake. I've been working on buying an interior lot down the street to build a shop on but have been fighting DHEC to get a septic permit. Hopefully will have that soon so I can get the builder in there and move my car here.

    Thanks Craig, I'm hoping to start on the quarters soon and I think that will be a major turning point for the project, along with getting it in one solid color again.

    I hope your building plans work out for your garage. I had a lot of fun building mine. Remember to put everything you think you may want in it now. You only build it once.

    I apologize that it has been so long for an update to this thread. I'm working on the car again. I'm working on getting the front sheet metal installed so that I can get the doors aligned before attempting to put the skins on. I have blew the dust off the camera and I'm going to make it a point to snap more pics of the build to keep this thread up to date.

    On a side note, I have changed my username from Rustover to Double R Restorations. Double R stands for my initials. Some of you may know, I have the project on YouTube. I call it "Project Overkill". At first it was really intimidating, but I really enjoy making the vids, and it helps keep me motivated. Here is a link to the vids of the car.

    Some of those first several vids are rough. lol. I'm still trying to improve on alot of things. All of the camaro vids are located in a play list in my channel.

    In future updates to the thread I will post a link to the latest vid, and I will also post the pics from that vid here. You can view just the pics or follow along in the vid. You can also subscribe and get instant notifications of uploads.

    Here are some pics of the "mock up" of the front sheetmetal:
