1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Hours of body part install on: September 17, 2014, 08:24:35 AM
Grate info guys!  i agree,   ive got most every thing removed,   i wasnt sure what else i can take apart in the garage then move the car,.

Yes ive got major rust that was covered up with new panels, then fiber glassed over,  went from a very clean looking car to a pos in about 3 days lol.

I didnt find out now that front end is gone, motor and trans out, etc... that the drivers side new floor pan is put in on top of the old one,  or where the old one should be,   i can see the remains of the old pan near the fire wall.

So I talked to "brooks" the guy that's related to Jeff who works for me.   He didn't give me a price but quoted mr a hourly rate,   Problem is I don't know how long stuff takes.   So you all that have had 1/4s, a roof, floor etc put in did they by chance put on the bill the time it took?

I'm thinking you all are are correct on just buying the dynacore body.   I went on amd and got everything I need in the buggy, some of it I might not need, went shopping with worse case scenario  anyway it was close to $5k   

So that means labor for install would have to be about $7k to get the price of the body.   By his price "about $40.00" a hour that would around 175 hours of labor to replace all the metal

Maybe i should get a set for the kids,  to heck with a belt!

Yea  ive looked on racing junk, seen a few but none that are a grate to deal.  problem with racing junk is that get side tracked and go looking at the race motors lol.

I have decided to put this back stock though,  well with a 6 speed manual.

No its not,  the only thing that is in good shape the trunk floor pan..       i guess the main question / answer will depend on labor cost..  then look and see what the difference is in the dynacorn body... 

Im sorta at a stand still now..   need to pull motor and trans but i dont have engine hoist,  also cant find my engine stand...  i hate it when let someone use something and they dont bring it back!

oh i cant do it my self...  i have no clue how to weld.

A guy that works for us his brother owns a huge body shop,  about 60 employees,   anyway he restores cars on the side,  so im waiting to see what he has to say on what labor will cost..   From what ive seen i need about $4-5K in body parts...  so unless labor cost $8K it would be cheaper..   those bodies are $14K arnt they?

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / body parts, am i over looking anything.. also... on: September 04, 2014, 10:55:10 AM
So i need a lot of body parts....    Here are a few photos,  let me know if ive missed anything.

Also "belairbobs".com   anyone know what body parts they use,   they have a monster kit,   Listed for $3K   I emailed them and ask about the kit.   He said that the body parts are not AMD, but fit just as good, they are not as thick...  with out the doors and hood, and in the roof skin, roof brace, and inner front fender it would be 2699...    This seems way to cheap.   I looked on AMD and it came out to a lot more,  i want to say it $4K ish...   From everything on here ive read paying the extra for amd stuff is worth it..    here is the link to there kit,

few quick shots,  and yes the entire front clip,

it was kinda pretty at one time,   this is the "side tank" i think is what you called it attached to the fire wall.   Need both of them Sad

Fire wall and dash... shot, 

ac thing, 

inside dash / fire wall

quick shot of the drivers side floor,   it looked better on the phone than on here lol...  anyway the seam? that the green wire is touching,  it looks like a replacedment floor that they did a lazy job of fixing

crap photo as well,   but inside 1/4 panel,  where the rear window rolls down.  Just looks odd to me.


Crap pict too,    This is the bottom of where the door bolts up!   both side like that,  once worse than other..

frame and stuff look good for here,

Yea,   they don't want to help,   But two can play dirty pool, and i have more to hustle with...  ill not go into detail but its been epic so far and its just getting started. 

Ive got the car down as far as i think i can go in the garage..   Time to start ordering parts.

WOW  yellow!    Looks good!
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: More number for you guys on: September 04, 2014, 09:36:55 AM
no doubt,   I had a set of those on the corvette,  until a nut took a tour of the inisde of the motor,   the forged piston are stronger than the head,  so the nut punched a big hole in the head Sad...

I have no clue what is done to this motor,   the carb is JUNK,   it can be fixed,  but a brand new one is $100 more..    I might just get that Fast FI set up for it.     

To me at this point the motor isnt a big deal,  It would be cool if it was at least, " something close, a could be"   but in the case,  the motor cant be built after the car Wink  I think im going to just restore this car and put it away..  then find one that cheap to start with..         A one time there was a place on line,   I want to say it was in callie, that all they did was sale gm motors,   I cant find it now,  but they where on e bay,   you could search by date code etc...

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / More number for you guys on: September 03, 2014, 09:15:54 AM
So i got around to getting some numbers..

So far we know that it was built 5-16-69,  X11,  V8 car,  Ext Paint is Glacier Blue With Parchment vinyl top, Interior is Ivory/Black,  Car has PDB, PS, AC, 

I have looked for marking to see if its a real SS and have yet to find any,  So we are under the assumption it was a 307 with a power glide,.... 

With that said these numbers are off the current motor in the car which has no vin numbers.

Front of the block,      BLANK      V 1204 TBC     ( thats all it says)       From what ive searched thats a 1970 truck block.

Back of the block,     25 GM  3970010,    Those number on here make it a 69-70 block but can be in any car.

above that there is a dial,  It pointing to D  ( about 1 o clock)  below that is circle with dots,  at "12" oclock there is a  dot above it,  the arrow is pointing to 4th hump...

On to heads..   3947041,   L30  3   

thats as far as ive gotten,   although i have found all the vin numbers on the body and they are same,  Not that it matter with the rust lol...
