I've called four different dentless repair guys, none will touch it. Jim will handle it at some point, no hurry.

Probably don't want to touch it Jody because of the real steel from back in the day. Those little suction puller thingy's most likely only work on the new car thing gauge metal. Not true, pure American steel from the yester-years. Just my guess.

Exactly. The metal is much stiffer than modern cars, you can't just push from the back side and pop these out, ask me how I know...

Got my bulkhead connectors from Maven Performance. Bought two, one will handle all the EFI/engine wiring.

Great progress sir, keep at it. I like the idea of leaving the body “imperfect”. That big dent in the right 1/4 will come out with the right paintless dent guy. I have one out here that could get it out, I guarantee it. I’ve seen him fix way, way worse. Keep looking, someone will tackle it. Just let them know it’s not a show car, just a driver. ‘Close, but not quite” type of repair.

Totally agree with this. We used a paintless dent guy for some work on a 67 Chevelle and the results were awesome. It was very surprising to see the dents just disappear.

I'm gonna go against the grain here. I'm of the philosophy that you do it once and do it right. I'd struggle to blow apart a car that I enjoy driving.

I love the look and simplicity of the GP Headers Single Turbo Kit. Just looking at it, do you think it would fit in a First Gen Camaro? I contacted them, but they were uncertain.
