I recently bought a 68 camaro and the previous owner had someone do quiet a bit of work on it. This is what has been done:
1. new roof
2. new quarter panels - both
3. New rocker panels - both
4. New floor pan
5. new trunk pan
6. new fenders
anyhow, most of everything that could be cut, has been cut and replaced. now i have a couple of areas of concern with the car and wanted to see if someone can guide me to see if this is even worth restoring and what the potential cost could be.
My main concerns are this:
1. both of the rear frame rails have some patchwork on them, i am not sure if this is safe and should i be cutting these off and welding new ones? if i do that, would is the approximate cost for something like this?
2. The rocker panels seem to have not been welded in straight. the gap under the door seems to grow larger as it gets closer to the quarter panel and is much smaller when it gets to the front of the car. this is same on both doors.
3. i have the windshield for the car and its not installed, but just laying in its place. it seems like the windshield has a too much of a gap between the pillar and the windshield where the pillar on the driver's side seems to be a bit lower. could be because of the roof replacement?
here is the link to all the pictures of the car which will show the frame rails and the gaps under the door and everything else:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bwulczfipdm2dg2/AADDSToW66DznAxETomH-C7Ga?dl=0
let me know what your thoughts are and how do you think i should proceed. any help is greatly appreciated!
