Thanks for the comments guys, been busy with work lately and buying up on parts so progress has been a bit slow, Ash if you search De rusting a 69 camaro (Tims thread) it will fill in the gap for the last couple of years.
Also there has been a few custom changes booster and wiper motor under the dash, new dash layout, tucked in bumpers, 4 link etc that are hidden but chew up time.
On the bright side I have a 408ci forged LS3 coming in from the states so if any one is interested in the old motor (Donovan, Brodix headed all aluminium SBC) let me know...

Thanks for the comments guys, can't take all the credit though I have most of the ideas but my fabricator (dirtbag) has the actual ability to build them.

Also I wouldn't say the helper is that much help he spends more time stealing and biting than anything else...

More updates of Tim's awesome work....
1. Proposed ride height, will see once motor is in
2. Engine bay ready for etch, panels are not 100% bolted in hence misalignment.
3.Primed!
4.Hq bonnet latch conversion to make room for the air to air I/C
5.Narrowed bolt less bumper conversion
