Cool. I knew you had the master cylinder but didn't realise the booster was the same. Thanks.
The seats looked the same as the ones in dads old xr8. I've been looking at hsv coulsons but wasn't sure if they'd fit & some people want huge $$ for them.

Anyway mate, you've gotta be stoked with how it's turned out. Your daughter will be riding in one of the coolest cars in the area

Sorry Nathan the booster is an 8in dual diagram standard unit.

I had the headrests removed and the padding adjusted to give it more of an old school look.

Yeah Pete it has come up sensational, over the moon! Ric from OCD detailing did an incredible job, and he really is OCD and a true car guy!

The Camaro is pretty much complete now, I’ve had the paint repaired were it was damaged during the rebuild, the wet sanded, cutback, buffed to within an inch of its life, finally had it Silica coated.





Interior is complete, spent a lot of time reworking the center console, seats are perfect height, very supportive and comfortable – everything works which is a bonus, VA AC is artic cold, very pleased with this system.





Fitted a new ReMaster Baer M/S which provides a much better pedal feel and response, better than the previous Wilwood unit

What a beautiful example of a 69 camaro. Quality work, well done.

Its been a while since updates.. I spun a bearing on the LS1 a while back, and have slowly been putting together an LS2 Stroker - 402CI. Here is a quick picture just after I fired it up. I'm hoping to get it to the tuner when I get back from work in the new year. Pretty bloody happy.
