Welcome to the site. Glad your project is moving along nicely. What all do you have planned for the car? I like the blue you're going with.

Okay, a few more updates to get y'all to present. Since I got it back this past winter, I worked on seam sealer in the interior and exterior. Also worked on the surface rust in places to help preserve the car for the winter since I did not yet have a paint shop lined up that did not have a 9 month waiting period. So I worked on the interior first. I cleaned and applied #M Seam sealer to all seams. I stripped any rust off and e-coating with a rotary nylon abrasive brush. (Thanks Sonar Chief) I then cleaned, taped off and shot the areas with Eastwood's Epoxy Primer to seal it well.



This was just to get it by as I did not want this thing sitting in Houston humidity and just rust away since I suddenly found out I was going to be traveling quite a bit for work in the first half of the year and will have less time to try to get this finalized to go to paint. (Work always seems to delay major projects like this )















Did some fitting for brake lines, fuel lines and some of my new billet accessories.



Also got my Ice wheels in from Budnik. Thanks Jason Swain.









Fronts are on the way.

Next update will have the latest progress as of 9/26/14. I will then be posting as it moves along. I finally have it at a local paint shop after hunting all summer. Great shop and has been doing excellent work so far and it is getting really close to paint now.

Okay, so it has been over at the paint shop where it has gone back on the rotisserie. The bottom sealed, primed, blocked and shot with semi-gloss black. Here's a couple of shots after it was rolled out of the paint booth. Sorry, pics taken from my phone...








More updates coming soon! I'll use a better camera on the next ones!

You are very welcome .... its not a fun way to spend an afternoon, but its gotta get done. Very nicely done .... good that its in epoxy, I have some spraying to do on the underside, Yipee!

Just an FYI ... I used Eastwood Frame coating under the seat frames there cuz when I cut into them for the sub frame connectors there was RUST, so I sprayed away before I weld the top back on.

Camaro is lookin good!

Good project. I can appreciate the time it took to find the car that seems to be the right one. I'm still looking for the "right" '69 fpr myself. Good color choice and a interesting build story. The neat thing that I like about the '60's cars is that they have lasted so long. Yes there's some rust damage, but compared to the thinner metal of cars of today these are more saveable. And they have character which is not common on modern cars. Definitely can appreciate needing to get the metal covered to avoid new rust in the Houston environment,

Keep up the good work and let us know your progress when you can.

Rod
