In for a penny etc.........

Going for a Camaro as a banger,according to my timeline the car would be 23 yrs old....So no repro panels back then plus being in England it would have little real worth!

Catching up on this one now Nigel. This is some epic build! :o How many cars are going into this?

I really like the "splinter" paint job you did :o)b

Looking forward to the next update.

In total - thinks..at least 6 so far...

Had an emergency this morning,a very sick n tired Camaro turned up,so the first operation was to build a roll bar for her,

The gas tank had to be amputated...

Along with a front inner fender and lower rear 1/4

Mockup..

I have just finished reading this build thread from the beginning.
Fantastic builds you have done.
I have never seen the tin foil damage method before. It looks great.
Well done :o)b
