Summers over

#1 Post by Hitchcock » Sun Sep 26, 2010 8:50 pm

All right, is it to early to start talking winter projects. Anyone have any plans on upgrades or projects? I know I have tons to do, and am starting to think about a bit of body work. But am trying to not get my self started on that. Such a can of worms on this car.

I'm hoping to gather up some fiberglass body parts, 5" cowl hood, front bumper and rear spoiler and then start getting ready for a fresh coat of paint.

If anyone is going to need some axles for their new project, let me know, I got a set of Moser's that I need to move.
I have them in the classified section but will sell them for a better price.

But my main goal is to finish the Camaro and sell it so I can buy a Nova......NOT!

Hey Hitch,

Looks like your already pretty set for the winter.....Vette, TV, Fridge, Stereo.

All you need to add is a toilet, microwave, couch and a Camaro and your set :thumb:

You even added a new heating system, didn't you?

Nope, the drive shaft was 3/4 too long. So I have one made. It was picked up today. Tomorrow heading down to the shop to install and should be good to go.
