Labor Day is next weekend and the summer has flown by. Between work, home priorities, etc… I did not get as far as I had hoped with the Camaro this summer. I gave myself a deadline of Labor Day this year for the undercoating. That will have to wait until next summer. I will update more after Labor Day, but I was able to unhook the front of the Camaro from the rotisserie, Stripped the remaining parts of the firewall including where the rotisserie mounted to. Cleaned the metal and applies some picklex to it and have masked it off. This next week will be final preparations, then over Labor Day weekend, apply primer, seam seal, and paint the remaining bare spots of the firewall and brackets before winter.
There are a couple odds and ends I might be able to do over the winter, but nothing too big. Next summer will be undercoating, block sanding and body work and a few odds and ends. Then in 2020 start on the suspension if everything goes as planned.
Hopefully more pics and another update after Labor Day!
Got a little side-tracked with a sick dog and other life priorities. Hope to get more garage time in a couple more weeks of nursing my dog back after his surgery. If the weather cooperates, there is still time to do what I wanted to before the cold weather hits!
Scuffed and cleaned the passenger side trunk quarter – ready to touch-up tomorrow:
also pulled out what was left over from my floor patching to eventually use as a test for my undercoating:
I drilled a couple of holes which I will be using ear plugs when undercoating. Need to be able to verify I can remove them after undercoating:
Stripped down to bare metal – Beer-30!
All cleaned up ready to prime tomorrow:
Also plan on touching-up some of the floor (street-side) with primer in a couple of spots tomorrow.
Going to touch-up the inside trunk spatter paint. You can see the areas in the picture. Working on driver’s side first. Scuffed and masked off. Hope to touch-up this weekend:
Obtained a pair of NOS rocker trim moldings. I already had one side, but finding a match has been difficult:
Spent some time this weekend scuffing then cleaning the bottom of the floor to get it ready for some touch-up and undercoating this summer:
