Thanks Chris.

When we bought the car there were a few bubbles visible under the vinyl, but we didnt expect this.

Anyway, all is good now we have replaced the roof entirely

Here is a photo of the right hand side rear qtr and wheel arch repair.


Rgds,

Hi Nev

Good work with the roof.

I'm about to do one myself.

Did you weld the whole seam from the qtr panel or leave it stiched like the pic ?

also how did you go undoing the spot welds in the gutter rails ? were they a pain in the arse to line up & weld again ?

Hi
the whole roof / qtr seam was welded.
Spot welds were ground (grinder)
Just have to be careful with alignment before welding.

If you want to see some really good pics on a first gen Camaro going together piece by piece go to the folowing link;

Album 5: pic 46 to 48 & 52 to 55
Album 6: Pic 1, 2 & 3 have photos specifically showing the roof going on

Engine and trans are now off to be rebuilt.

Thanks.
It's getting there.
Red paint with a white bumble bee stripe is next.
Powder coating the chassis, radiator support etc.
Engine is being built. 383 stroker. Aiming for about 400hp. I know this isn't much in comparison to some, but it will be an "old school" muscle car, so 400 shouldn't make it too hard to live with.
I wish I could go for a manual trans, but I have the T350 in for a rebuild.

More photos later.

Rgds,
Nev

A little bit more work.
Chassis & Radiator support etc. removed for paint and/or powder coat.
Chassis will be powder coated, as will radiator support and all associated parts.
Paint for the upper and lower control arms.



Here's a photo of the 350 4 bolt block I picked up. It's with the engine builder now.
It's getting hard to find standard bore 350 4 bolters. I remember a time when we were tripping over them.



Rgds,
Nev
