First of all, welcome to the CRG!!! You will indeed get some answers to your questions here. This site is dedicated to the originality and restoration of first gen Camaros, with originality being the key word, and a great place to research how your car originally came about and how it's put together. However, with all that being said, let me also suggest the Team Camaro site, http://camaros.net
as a great source of information regarding modifications and a TON of information regarding auto-body repairs on our cars. Check out their forums. Between these two sites, I doubt there is anything that you can't find out and do for yourself.
