There were pins added after the car's Trans-Am days to keep the doors more securely closed.
These were removed since the car is going back to how it looked during the 1970 season.

More progress seen on Karman's car. New flares being put on to more correctly portray the car as it ran in 1970 with the green color scheme.
The correct 1x4 cowl plenum aircleaner is going back on so the huge hole in the top of the cowl has been filled in preparation for that.

That's pretty exciting, Karman. I'm looking forward to seeing some color on the car again.

They did a nice job fixing the cut out trunk lock area. I was curious as to what they were going to do there. Are the Minilites going to stay on it?

Yes it's very exciting. I am looking forward to getting this project completed as well. I have emailed some of these progress pictures to Rick Ware and am hoping to hear from him as to what he thinks.
Yes I am having the mini lites coated white so we can leave them on.   I know  it should be the steel wheels but we'll see how it goes.
Won't be long now.

Karman, the Historic Trans-Am group is not going to beat you up over what wheels you have on the car. You could
have the Minilights on there and they can even be natural aluminum color if that is your preference.

Fenders are coming along nicely.  I was talking to the Cobra Automotive folks about your car last week at Fontana! Looking forward to see it at Monterey.

I knew they were out there. They certainly hagve a lot going on. The Shelby Event over the 4th now this week we have the Elkhart Lake Road America Event. Fortunately not all the body guys  make the trip to the races.  Wish the car was done for this event but it's all good. We've waited this long.  Once we get to Monterey it's going to be a busy couple of weeks. Soon after the Cal event  there's LIme Rock and Watkins Glen.  The car should be well sorted by then.

When I was at the Shelby meet, I saw Curt but he was always busy with others and I didn't get the chance to chat with him about the Camaro.
