I do plan to track this car, and baffling was a concern however my Ricks tank already has a fair amount of internal baffling inside, on top of the foam baffle supplied with the Aeromotive kit i shouldn't have a problem.

From a Holden and HSV wrecker over east, Fusccars.

Don;t really trust any of the major Holden wreckers over here so went with a company that gets a great reputation, so far experience over the phone has been great. Very helpful and happy to accommodate any requests.

Awesome Jake thanks for the tip. The only one I've found over here that gets a lot in is Holford. haven't gone as far as to look into peoples dealings with them though. Good to know there's a reliable option over east. Usually more choice when shopping over east too. ;-)

Unfortunately ran into more rust with this thing after deciding to investigate what was hiding underneath these horrible patch panels.




I was hoping it was just rusted out where they had covered up, but unfortunately it goes a little deeper into the sill than that.




Yet to find out what behind this patch below the door hinge mounts but from feeling behind its the same story as the left hand side.



Fortunately you can get replacement panels for the outer skin, however I have not been able to find any replacements for the rest of the areas not covered by the panel below, all in all not too bad and will give me a chance to fabricate a few simple pieces to repair the rotted out areas without having to worry too much about it looking good as it will mostly never see daylight again.

Wow ... we are roughly at the same stage in our projects.

I'm in the same boat with these side cowl panels ... one of mine is rusted, the other has been crushed (prior accident).

I love your choice of drivetrain for this project! I'm also currently shopping for the same.

Will be following this keenly.

Little bit of progress, started the repairs on the cowl area, and coated it in a product called KBS rust seal. Very similar to POR15 and it has worked great so far for me.

It's a 3 part system, 1. Aqua Kleen ( Degreaser ) 2. Rust Blast ( Converter ) 3. Rust seal (sealer / top coat )

The Rust blast worked very well on what I would consider heavy rust, however it took a couple of hours of constant spraying and wire brushing and I used almost an entire bottle on just the side inner cowl area that is in the pictures above.

Regardless it worked great and the Sealer looks really nice and levels out nicely.



Also started striping the floor back to bare metal and coating with the KBS system. Didn't bother with the rust blast as it was completely bare metal, just the cleaner and sealer. Came out great and hopefully wont have to touch it ever again. Have left some areas un touched as they will be cut out when the floor pan tubs and firewall are replaced.





Little comparison, before during and after.



Have been a little side tracked in the past 3 weeks working on a mates VS commodore that we have LS / t400 swapped in 3 weeks, in time for Motorvation this Saturday. After this weekend ill focus on finishing the repairs and floor sealant.

My big parts shipment is due on the 19th of Feb, so unfortunately i wont get it done in time for Racewars like I had planned, but it appears ill be working that weekend anyway.

Hay Jake,
I wouldn't go too far with the flooring coatings until you get the gearbox/LS3 in with the extreme subframe, I have a feeling you will need to cut out your trans tunnel to get the gearbox to fit, due to the design of the subframe the motor sits higher so you can get the car running lower so the trans tunnel suffers and even the transition into the bootspace.
Best to check with Jay from Speedtech as he has the same gen Camaro and is currently building his as we speak.
