Geez Stuart. We've all seen a hell of a lot worse than that. Looks like you have a really good base to start with. Keep the pics coming

Seen worse Stuart.
Floors look very good.
Not sure what happens the U.S with the half @rse panel replacement, I have seen a bit of that. Not sure why they don't replace the panel with the full replacement panel.

What's the jig on the front end for?(last photo)

It may have been replaced when full GM panels were the only expensive option. They might be panels off another Camaro.

The right panel may be a skin, but I'd bet the left is from a doner. No skin goes half way up the sail, and no one would buy a brand new GM replacement and cut it like that.. I hope.

Finally received my new panels . I was very nervous when i opened them after hearing some bad reports about replacement panels. They seem to look good no dents or inperfections . Now my panel beater can get to work.

Today I'm looking at a crate from Eagle, 350/330hp. The rebuild I may take on as a project/storage. I will see mechanic today so tomorrow may be a different story.

Nice to see some progress Stuart..
What was the reason the 1/4s were not unpicked at the factory 1/4-roof seam?
