The weather is finally starting to cool off here, so I will be getting back into it soon. Just been too busy and it's too hot in the garage to work for very long. My next step is going to be the pillar repair. Once that is done, I can move on to the floors and firewall repair.

thanks its nice having the comments and forum sometimes projects get long and the good stuff keeps it going im happy at the small rust considering its a car that spent all the time in the snow and salt roads so i guess could be 10 times worse got to do floor pans fender aprons and few other small spots but its almost 100% apart im gonna blast the car i think start fresh

Adam, still have not heard back from you on that passengers side windshield / door post from your parts car. Are we still going to make a deal on that?

Replied to your email with a pic of a car that Rusty428 is working on.

But to answer your question, no I do not have to replace the rockers or fender aprons. The door jam and windshield post needs to be replaced from where it meets the rocker to about 3/4 of the way up to the roof the passengers side because. The car sat outside most of it's life in Florida and the rain and humidity did a job on it.

while took a while to respond got some government surprise. Heres the story im having a bon fire so i dig a small pit so the ash dont fly into the woods and start a fire than neighbor call the EPA saying im burring trash so they came out to investigate and i had 2 cars outside the shop (they cant enter shop its a cement floor inert material so they cant do anything) and so the cars outside were listed as a violation (theres not even engines in them) for environmental hazard soo after towing off my 2 cars (also not plated so i guess thats illigal to) now my project has taken a turn i wanted to do 2 restore this one and make a trans am out of the other but since all this crap has happened i gotta pick so im gonna build this into a trans am style race car

ive made a lot of progress on the car lightly after being upset by what happened i haven't been online in a while kinda just been in the shop so here we go with the updates

i stripped down the front end





than i built my 289 up











got it running really good now but i need serious input now as to what to do about the trans am style how the cage should be etc. any help is much appreciated because i haven't seen much into on them and i want it to be close to original trans am look

I love 67 coupes. Nothin better. We have a 1967 GTA 390. The only thing is that block is so big for the car. Great on the staight away, not meant for the country cruves. You can feel that car wanting to pull because of the weight up front.
Good luck with the car. She will be beautiful I am sure, when you are done!
