The front subframe and cowl area are getting prepped for their repaint.

Here are the front wheel wells showing some of the necessary modifications for tire clearance and
the notches needed to clear the roll cage bars that attach to the front subframe.

The fender flares truly amaze me at how they beat the living snot out of them with a hammer then smooth it out into a work of art! I have to do the flares on the Mustang I am building and I am not looking forward to it. I practiced on a junk fender and it came out some where between the beat to death picture and the smoothed out picture. Mine won't be as big as these though.

I agree it looks great. Won't have time for interior but I believe we can do that after these next races.  Coming down to the wire for sure.

You have no idea how glad I am that you decided to paint it "original" green and not orange. Nothing against its later carnations, but that British green has got to be one of the best looking colors on any Camaro I've ever seen!

Fantastic results and thanks for sharing!

Thanks I appreciate your comments. The color selection of Green seems to be the general consensus.  It was a tough decision since we have more pictures of it orange. I will find out today what the Ware family thinks as I have a call scheduled with Rick this morning.

More photo updates. Stripes are going on as decals due to time constraints of getting to the Monterey Historics in time. They'll be painted correctly later.

She looks fantastic in Green.  Just one suggestion that I'm sure you have thought of...change that fuel cell.
