Sounds like you have a good plan. I hope you take pictures and post them through out the build. It's cool to see the transformation shots. Good Luck

Photo of a 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 (clone) (Current Project)


I purchased this car about 3 years ago in Arizona as a roller, no eng, trans, or interior. I started collecting parts for a restoration about a year ago. It`s a California car, so no rust except for a small spot on each lower fender corner. 1/4`s were pretty rough, (bad body work) but original and salvageable. So far so good, hope to have it done by next year.
