    73 Camaro

    ok so it's a 74 but I'm converting it to a 73, I wasn't due to start this 'till next year as I have zero spare time and money at the mo but the rust is growing at an alarming rate so thought I'd best make a start, and looking at flak monkey's camaro project has given me loads of inspiration, plans are (and can and probably will change lol) 73 non rs front and rear conversion, pro touring sort of look but not massive rims, big block engine but would prefer ls engine if funds allow, original colour was silver but I'll probably go for grey or orange paint, still need a 70-73 front lower valance and a rear bumper if anyone has one please

    Very nice! I would have loved an earlier one.

    Looks pretty straight and clean too. Hope you dont find as much tin worm as I have! Sounds like you have similar plans to me as well. I'll be watching to see how you get on

    It's not too bad, there's a few bits of welding to do, I'll get some more pics up soon, I hope I don't find as much tin worm as you as I don't have your welding skills lol, I have a friend help me with my welding so I could do with finding as little as pos lol, the rear arches and wing bottoms as well as a few more patches has been done with pop rivets , but for it's age it's quite good.

    my Dad's had it parked up for nearly 20 years, and he's responsible for filling over the rust and painting it Fiat yellow

    been stripping it and having a poke here and there, don't seem bad at all, there's a fair few bits of welding to do but nothing big, overall pretty solid but I havn't checked everywhere yet lol, I'm gonna whip out the dash and rear seat tomorrow and see if there's any more, there's a lot of filler on the rear wings where the lower panel and new arches have been pop riveted on as well as a few riveted plates in the boot and inner arches.

















    there's a few more bits here and there and on the doors but all minor stuff, and who puts a Buick engine in a Camaro?
