    Thanks guys for warm welcome and advice, only I'm gonna need more advices in a future... :D

    Your advices means a lot to me cause I dont know to many people in my country that have this kinda of cars so I'm like alone here in this and the one of the only thing that I can lean on is what I see in Your progreses and your advices. Of course I have some of my friends too wich are experts in diferent areas, but they have never encounter with real car like this one...

    2 burak sozer: Those curently tyres that are on car are old and full of cranks. Tyres that are on the Z are 265/50/R14 on front and 265/50/R15 on rear. Don't want to search for another sets of wheels (rims) and like you said I dont think that I'll find new one with those dimensions. Dont know if those tyres that are on my Camaro are too big or what, but I kinda like them...
    Thanks for parts offer.
    Hope that You in Istanbul have more luck than me here...

    2 Project79Z: Jup, I was asking myself that question about background but I
    tought it wont matter...

    2 1FstChevy: When I've take Camaro I tought that there is gonna be much more work, but I was wrong. I'll post pictures soon...
    Tail lights have little cranks inside :whine: but I think, a little cleaning will do the job.
    A/C compressor is dead, I think and some of other stuff need to be work on, but one at a time...

    When I was disassembleing subframe I've noticed that subframe bushings on left side are missing (HM?!) and now I have to buy new one...
    Slowly but I'm moving with progress... I HOPE...

    I dont know if I'm wrong or not but it looks like that driver side wheel isn't simetrical with the other one???

    go with solid body bushing for improved handling..

    and I would expect the toe to be off until you put some weight back onto the subframe.. I wouldn't worry about it until then.

    Welcome to the big Nasty:D

    Hi Tompa,

    Welcome and good luck with your project, but I think that`s not gonna be a problem for you ;) :confused:
    For parts you can also look at German and Dutch companies which will save you a lot of shipping and taxes , however there are still parts that you will need to buy in the USA because of the availability over here (Europe)

    Good Luck
    Rene
