Default 69 Camaro without a name.....

This is how I brought it home in 2002. Body had very little rust and not much bondo either, still took it down to metal.





Here is the interior.

Orignal plan for the car was just your basic street car with a traditional small block 383. Well, then I starting looking into LS engines, found a engine, trans, harness, ECM, and a few other helpful goodies to go with it. Then started thinking about big brakes, better suspension and on and on.

Here is how it will be basically equipped:

LS2/t56 combo from a GTO
12 bolt with Moser axles and Eaton posi
Corvette C6 Z06 brakes
ATX front spindles with Global West UCA/Stock LCA's (for now)
Rushforth Titanium/brushed hoop 18 x 8 front and 18 x 9 rears from Frank at Prodigy Customs
ISIS wiring system
Vintage Air Gen IV from Frank
Aluminum radiator and condenser from Frank
Building my own g-link copy rear suspension with some help from Frank
Second Skin sound deadening

Here are some pics of what it looked like during and after body work and before primer:







Here are the floor boards, got lucky, didn't have to do anything to them other than remove a little surface rust. Car's been in the southwest it's whole life I think.

Here it is in primer in the garage paint booth it was painted in. We used Evercoat's Feather Fill, it really worked well.



Here are a couple after the jambs were painted prior to reassembly.

It's Lexus paint code 8M6 which is 5437 in PPG and DuPont F4486
The paint is Nexa Auto Color though.
