Thanks for the advice Jerry.  I have gotten responses ranging from patching those areas will be fine to just scrap the car because its going to be a fortune to fix it.  I will let some one look at first hand to see what I have got.  Thanks again
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Body work recommendations on: June 08, 2007, 11:13:52 AM
I am looking for some recommendations from you experts. You have all been a big help to me in the past. I have finally finished the disassembly of my 1968 camaro and I am getting ready to start working on the body. Overall the body is is good shape with the exception of rust on the roof, both quarter panels, upper rear outer body panel, caused by a vinal roof and trunk pan. I have attached some photos of what the damage looks like and would like to know if I should replace all the rusted areas with new sheet metal or just have them patched. I figured that I would have to replace the roof, trunk pan and the upper rear outer body panel, but would I need to replace the entire rear quarter panels or just patch the rusted areas. Any advice would be great.

3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Rebuild or Replace Engine and Transmission on: March 11, 2006, 11:36:43 AM
Hi everyone,

I am currently in the process of begining the restoration of a 1968 Camaro.  It was my grandmother's car and has not been running since 1985. For the most part the car is in good shape with the exception of some rust on the roof and several pounds of rat droppings under the dash board.  I am going to do some of the restoration myself (interior, body work and electrical) but my big question is what to do with the engine and transmission.  It is the original matching numbers engine for the car a 327. My question is should I just have the engine and transmission rebuild or should I have them replaced?  I am not look to race or show the car, I am just looking to have a nice clean driver.  Budget is a consideration so that is why I would like some advice. Is it more expensive to rebuild an engine or to buy a new one and what would you recommend.

Any insights or opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
