Overdue update on yet another Camaro. Almost as many Camaro's as there is Harley's in WA. I have had the private plates sitting at the licencing centre for nearly two years now and yes there are corny...lol. Anyway I have been busy working on her and I have to say thanks to my mate Luke who has had a big impact on the build. Almost have the body ready for paint. Steering done, brakes...well almost. Not happy about putting the Hydratech unit in the engine bay but my knowledge on fitting it under the dash and somehow getting it to work is limited somewhat. Still toying with the idea though. Brakes/suspension a few challenges. I have put on the old wheels for now until I get some new wheels. Had to remove the 14" Baer rotors up front to get 15" wheel to fit temporarily. Close call with fitting these wheels as I almost damaged the steering arms as the thickness of the missing rotor was not there, lucky I only did hand tight and noticed it. Bonnet is probably over the top hence I still have the original 2" induction bonnet. dash has been modified to bolt in/out, no welds. Going for a complete dark look from the paint to having all stainless and polished ali components including rims covered in black chrome Ultimate1 from my mate Neil who is the only person in Perth who does this, he runs a paint shop and is also owner/manager of XclusiveFX. Tip of the iceberg so far otherwise I would be here all day.

Nice work. What is the bonnet scoop ? Looks like a combo of reverse-cowl, stinger and Mach 1 Mustang.

We mounted my Hydraboost unit under the dash with a right angle conversion bracket ... mounting was the easy bit, plumbing and bleeding was the killer apparently there was lots and lots of swearing (luckily I was o'seas at the time ) - definitely gives that flawless firewall look tho

I'm not sure who Chris is? Although the 4 link is finished.

I’m just picking one area at a time and working on it until completed. I have a a 10yo son who loves the work, and gets involved in all the problem solving, he’s a great little TA. This car will be his one day.

Just finished of shaving the drip rails. Removed and rewelded them in place, yet keeping the strength along the existing drip rail section. Took about one week of cropping/welding and grinding. Still not finished as it will need some mud on it to blend into the roof for that smooth look. Booked in with my mate Neil at Xclusivefx to paint next week and I am super excited.
