same story removing the quarter panels. Second one was gone in a matter of hours. Still feels a bit scary hacking right into the middle of a panel with a cuttoff disc.





Sweat out the lead in the roof seam with an oxy, before removing 20 odd spot welds on the seam. Great time to make sinkers



The quarters on both sides had been re-skinned... twice. The mysteries which can be hidden by copious bog.



Rockers took more effort than any other panels to fit up. A lot more bending, cutting and trimming, but finally got them both in place, with abit of assistance from the daily's scissor jack.





As it sits today. Rockers are screwed in place for a test fit with the rear quarter panels. Once i'm happy, both will come off for a lick of paint internally before welding in.



Thanks to Tom who helped out removing a few dozen of the 500 spotwelds over the last 12 months

Once the quarter panels are in, more structural bracing, as the floor is coming out from firewall to tailights. Why? Well, for starters it's all screwed.

The boot floor looks like a planetarium from underneath, the chassis/stiffener rails are rotted through and the floor patches have been welded in by Stevie Wonder



Also, plans have changed slightly on the suspension/frame as word on the street says Ron Sutton has burnt a few people and is his shop is failing.

So currently looking at a Chris Alston GStreet setup. Similar concept to what I had planned, but it is tailored for the 69 camaro and comes with a full floor kit to replace all my rotted out panels.
