Buffing wheels ,what a great idea!

Taking a stay-cation , hoping to get a little quality Camaro time in between a few  home projects.

Seems with the aftermarket subframes on the market, someone would stock the cross member: Fat Man Fabrications, Detroit Speed ?

Or even just another bottom plate section?

For now I am leaving the dents in mine.  Adds character.  :D
Come on Bryon! :)
Could not leave them in our 68 and they be gone now....

It's not real high on my priority list.  :D   

But I have no issues if people want to put them back to original.  :)

My car is normally in storage or out "cruising" so rarely is anyone looking under it.

It really bothers me to see an otherwise nicely done car with the giant floor jack dent.

I did mine while it was off the car, and didn't spend 4 hours on it start to finish.

Somebody had some of those bottom plates made but I can't remember who told me.
