Re: 67 Camaro Build

Im not a big fan of Camaros but when you posted Grumps Camaro that brought back some fun memories. I think a 67/68 Camaro set up with the same stance and tire wheel combo would be really cool to bomb around in.

Ha, you know it, we use this lift as a body/frame elevator, paint booth, project storage, etc. it continues to be a great tool!

I think so too, that's the plan, a rake with some Cragar SSs. Pizza cutters up front and some sticky's in tha back!



Building a jig/body cart that won't fall apart and is next up.

I called and texted on that as soon as I saw it. Poof, gone! Well keep looking.

Keep up the good work!

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Some poly bushings, tub o grease and oil filter adaptor bolts showed up from Summit. Slid the subframe back under the car again with the new bushings prior to repairing the bad LR body mount hole. Toying with the idea of making our jig able to accept the subframe for front clip fitment later (?).

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Placed an order a few days ago for some 13ga sheet after we were unable to source it locally. Speedy Metals was certainly spendy, Ha, I mean speedy (compared to the cost of a new subframe this was way cheap)! https://www.speedymetals.com/pc-2681...eel-sheet.aspx

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Tank swapped and more wire in the machine, our little Lincoln is a happy camper. Heres the first layer of subframe repair.

Thanks Clyde, it's coming along pretty good.




Flipped over for another pass, added some nice ugly weld on the end like the factory welds. Ha, thinking that'll do!
