    Russ,

    Do you have a rear package tray yet. I have one that has a small crease in it that they sent a new one for. I'd let it go for 1/2 cost new if you are interested I can get you a pic. Also you should get that mirror bracket soon I mailed it out a couple days ago.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. Tony no rush, I appreciate it. Craig, I appreciate the offer. I do have one, I just cut it out of the car for access to the trunk. I plan to weld it back in after the trunk pan replacement. The extension is toast, but Tony has a good one for me. I haven't seen the mirror bracket yet, but the holiday has probably put them behind.

    I ordered my mirror gaskets from Camaro Central just a few weeks ago and they are correct. They looked identical to the originals with the tab. I called to verify it was not the OER ones. I have two new OER ones (drivers side) if anybody needs them.

    Craig, I built those jack stand elevators a few years ago. They have come in very handy. The front tires are on a set of ramps. I'm not really a fan of ramps, but these seem to be ok. My neighbor gave them to me a few years ago when he was cleaning up his yard. I would always borrow them to clean out from under my riding mower. I cleaned them up and had them powder coated. I like these because I can turn one opposite the other and put a 2x4 in them to scotch a tire. Not sure if I would use them once the motor and trans is in, but for the shell they should be ok.

    Thanks for the compliments on the shop. It was a lot of saving up for and hard work. I basically put the camaro project on hold for 3 years. It feels good to get out there and work in it.
