Just about have the passenger side firewall bracket removed. Good thing I am replacing them because the bottom was pretty much rusted out! Used the plasma cutter to cut most of it out. Also used the seam busters to break the spot welds. I tried drilling the spot welds out, but had difficulty locating them. Need to order some floor pans to cut out the toe boards from. Doubt I will get much done next weekend as I will have company this week!
Not much progress made on the car this weekend – had to work on some other ToDo’s! I did decide to build a shed in the backyard to provide me with more storage! More to come on that later.
NOTE: Wednesday April 18th the site will be down for maintenance between 9:00PM-midnight Central time.
Found some replacement subframe bolts from Classic Industries. Went ahead and ordered two of them for connecting the firewall brackets to the jig I am building.
Decided to build my own body jig to keep the Camaro from twisting while I work on replacing the body parts. Priced the 1/8″ 2×2’s on the internet for roughly $600 and $100 shipping for 11 12′ sections. Drove down to Mcneilus steel in Dodge Center and got the same thing for about $350 (note: you can buy one on the Internet for roughly $850-$975 plus $350 shipping):
I will start on the body jig AFTER I replace the firewall brackets so I have a good mounting point.
