    +1, 2nd Gen Camaros aren't that rare, and solid 74-81 projects are still very affordable even in New Zealand

    Everyone's idea of repairable is different, but even if you're doing everything yourself you have to think how about much your time is worth.

    Wow that's a lot of rust.

    I'm interested to see what becomes of your project. Subscribed.

    Note; I have a 75 in similar condition and I bought an 80 for metal. it can be done. Too much head ache for me , but it can be done haha. Realized I just don't have that kind of time and in the process of selling.

    I fully agree and for lots people it might not be worth it to do all the extra body work instead of buying a car the dosnt need it. For me not so much. Not only that but I enjoy the work so i consider it time well spent.

    I can imagine. Rust=time. Unless your looking for something to take up your time (like me). I'd fully suggest finding something low on rust from a dry state.

    Since it seem that you well understand the time and money that you are going to have in on this car I wish you the best of luck in getting this car off the ground.

    Update:
    Body work is being held up by rain. There hasn't been a single day in the last week that it hasn't rained for at least a bit.
    Going to make sure they have some good water protection.
    Is there anything wrong with just using a huge tarp?
    I'm going to try to clear out enough parts to get the car inside.

    If you use a tarp, do not lay it directly on the body. A tarp doesn't breath and will hold moisture.
